I am happy to report that Nick and I completed our final birthing class tonight. Talk about timing. If the class would have lasted just one more week, we would have already had Caleb here to take care of and not just baby Teet. Tonights class was all about infant care and new momma care. We learned how to bathe, swaddle, diaper, feed etc etc our new baby. Teet was soo little that the hospital blankets swallowed him whole. We watched an interesting video on newborn manurisims, and I have to admit that all I could think about was little Caleb's arrival. I can not wait to see him for the first time. After our break we came back and learned about momma care after baby is born. We discussed the baby blues, and PP Despression. The instructor then began talking to us about our bodies, and the pain that we may experience after delivery. I have to admit that I had not thought to much about the pain that could come with stiches, but I am thankful to have learned of various ways to help minimize this pain. However, I about died when I saw the size of the maternity pads and underwear that the hospital supplies new mommas. The pad was the size of a diaper. I couldn't help but laugh, and Nick and I just looked at eachother. I mean seriously huge. I know they are probably the best thing at the time, and I am sure that I will not care, but they are soo different than I imagined. I mean I had purchased pads (for the first time since I was 12), but now mine seem to tiny. I dunno what to think. They make it seem as though you are going to hemorrage blood with the size of the pads. Is it really as bad as it seems? I am afraid that they will show through all of my clothes that I am taking to the hospital. I guess we will just have to see. I feel as though every time I walk it will sound crunchy. SOO attractive. Oh well baby Caleb will be worth it.
