More Education

On Tuesday night we had our first childbirth education class. It was an interesting class and I was glad Steve was there too. I feel like I may forget things I learned in class during the heat of the moment.

Here is what I learned:

1. Pretty much everyone finds out the sex of the baby before it's born. Out of 8 couples we were the only couple who didn't know the sex. In case you are wondering the other 7 couples are all having boys.

2. People ask some weird questions. One lady kept asking about food during labor. One wanted to know when you get the drugs. Another was wondering if her birth plan was a good one. Huh, birth plan? After she asked this, Steve turned to me and asked what our birth plan was. I told him our plan is to get it out.

3. Milford Hospital has birthing rooms with Jacuzzis. It's for me not Steve.

Can't wait to see what we learn next week.

We're not finding out either. Stay tuned! I like your response to the birth plan question.
