Jesse and I are so glad that he is back and done with his bike trip but now the reality has set in that we will have a baby in 2 months or less! We went to the doctor on Wednesday for a check-up and all seems great. We go back the day before Thanksgiving and hope that all is still on track! On Thursday, we took a class at the hospital with our friends Ashley and Steven. It was a little awkward in the class because it was all about breastfeeding but it was very informational. I was a little nervous going into it but felt ok when we got done. Yesterday we took the birthing class and tour of the hospital...I wasn't nervous before that, but now I am a little freaked out about this whole process! Where are these classes in high school?! I guarantee you that the teen pregnancy rate would drop if people actually had to see this whole thing. I mean, the process is miraculous of a baby but it certainly is no easy task to get the baby here! Jesse and I are excited about her coming but also need to do a lot before her arrival! Luckily there is no talk about her coming early or anything so we should have plenty of time...it did freak me out when my mom reminded me that I came 8 weeks early and she wasn't expecting that...I will be 32 weeks on Friday...so we really have a little bit we need to prepare for...
- Buy some clear detergent to wash baby stuff
- Pack a bag for the hospital
- Buy a car seat
- Buy a pack and play
Please leave me a comment of anything that I need to know about breastfeeding or birth...My plan is to get an epidural once I am able to...but I am pretty nervous about the process!
