Preparation

Thank you Erin and Kelly for your suggestion of classes.

I have taken a 6 week childbirth class and a breast feeding class, and you are right they have helped.
I think part of my fear is that the classes are over. When I was going to class, I was doing something, preparing, and now I am back to waiting. Can you tell that patience is not my forte?

Also, KW was only able to make it 2 of the childbirth classes, so in a lot of ways I am worried that he is not prepared either!

I'm going to try and work on putting my trust in God and chipping away at my to do list!

Any other helpful suggestions or maybe books to read out there?

....thought this might make you feel better...it did me. My sister didn't even go to a labor prep course. I was like how did you know what to do? Her answer: I figured it would come to me. Lets just say you are a step ahead!

The classes are good, but I think what helped me best was getting together with some friends that recently had babies (we had a baby boom in our Sunday school class) and we just chatted about what happened and what to expect.

Really, it all does come naturally, and I'm sure you'll do great. The nurses at the hospital I delivered at (Northside) are awesome and really help you through things.
