We went to out first prenatal class Tuesday night. I got to meet some other expectant women and DH got to talk to some other father's to be.
The nurse discuss the different stages/phases of labor, then we watched a video. Oh my, to see DH's face! He's pretty "faint of heart", and he wasn't too bad through the birthing parts (they didn't show too much though....just the baby coming out) but when they showed the placenta, he had to close his eyes and turn his head! He's afraid now that he's going to pass out or throw up when he's in there with me. He keeps trying to talk me into not needing him there lol
They gave us a lot of resources and pamplets! I'm looking forward to the next one now...."Possible procedures and interventions".
The class is every Tuesday night, for 4 more weeks (so 5 meetings total). This should make time go by even faster!
Forever missing our angel November 9, 2010, with us for 9 weeks
I love prenatal classes. We have something similar on post that dh and I are going to try to do. however, he leaves in about 5 weeks for 3 weeks then it's only 3 weeks until the baby is born so I'm not sure how/if we will make it work.
LOL @ your Dh. I'm sure once he's there with you he'll be so distracted with everything going on he won't even notice the placenta, etc.
I just signed up for classes yesterday. It's for the month of August on Tuesday evenings. I'm really excited. I never took any classes when pregnant with Olivia because the hospital was over an hour away and they charged big bucks for them. This time around they are super close AND free. I can't wait.
