First Birth Class

Yesterday we had our doula, Ashley, come and teach our first birth class. I do a LOT of reading now that I'm not working anymore so it wasn't much new information for me but I think Steve learned some things. We did a quick review of the anatomy and physiology of childbirth and then Ashley talked about what our roles were- especially hers and Steve's. I think we all know what my role is. She talked to Steve a little bit about how to be a good support person- I actually think he's going to be great. He almost always knows what to do for me when I'm sick or upset so hopefully this won't be any different. Ashley also gave us some homework as far as relaxation exercises and exercises to help move the babies into their ideal birth positions. Mostly that involves getting on the floor and doing cat stretches before bed. We also talked about nutrition and some other boring stuff. Anyway, here is the requisite belly-picture for the week-

As you can see, sometimes I trade in my purple pregnancy flip-flops for black flip-flops. Yay for shoes you can put on and take off by yourself!
