Final Birthing Class!

Good Job, Daddy! He put the diaper on correctly.

Last night was our 5th and Final Birthing Class. We went over pushing techniques, natural deliveries, and C-sections. We actually had to practice the pushing position and holding our breath without the pushing, HA! Let's just say, I think I realized how hard pushing will be and I wasn't even doing it for real,but just getting in the position with a big belly is tough!
After we went over our little lesson and watched a video on C-sections each Daddy-to-Be had to go in front of the class and put a diaper on the baby doll. If the guys couldn't do it then Mary Jane said she was gonna keep our Baby's once they arrived. I love that she made all the daddy's do this. She said now they can't say they have never changed a diaper when the Baby's get here. No excuses, Daddy's! Then Mary Jane gave each couple a Baby's First Bible, so sweet!
I can't believe how fast are 5 weeks went by. We really enjoyed every class. Mary Jane is so informative and entertaining at the same time. Our main goal we focused on was having a healthy baby. Nothing else matters: natural or c-section, meds or no meds, forceps, vacuum, or any other complication that might make you change the plan you had in visioned as long as you have a healthy baby when it's over that is all that counts!
Next up is my 3 hour Glucose test tomorrow. I'm just ready to know one way or the other. I will be sure to update on here as soon as I find out.
