on my mind...

let's be honest, when is this belly of mine and the little guy inside, not what is on my mind?
especially in the middle of the night, as my sleeping positions have been high compromised. who chooses to be a side sleeper anyway?

sometimes this thinking only reminds me once again of the differences between men and women.

or at least between the husband and myself.

think- someone flicking you in the stomach constantly- but from the inside. yep, prompts you to think about them regularly. (somehow with fondness though, which i'm sure would not be my feelings toward just about anyone else flicking me in the stomach on a regular basis. Would now be a good time to admit that everytime baby bobby kicks, i lean over and flick bobby in the stomach, so he gets a taste of it? think he still loves me??)

all this thinking- read obsessing- has led to overactive planning brain mode.

so i have this conversation with bobby, wanting him to get in on the action. I start peppering him with the questions about his expectations, what he wants, what he thinks will happen, etc.

in regards to childbirth, his response was something like, "well, I plan on being there, and the doctor will come in and deliver the baby, and hand him to us, and well, yea."

insert panic here.

i think he might have filled in a few more details, but not many.

is it a good time to decide that maybe a birthing class is in order?

p.s. the lovely backdrop is our bedroom, currently not in working order. updates on that forth coming...

You look GORGEOUS!! Not kidding. I don't sugarcoat things, not even for pregnant women. Also, I totally used to flick Bannock back and he came out totally fine and loves me. :)

you really do look so great Megan! Being pregnant has its many downsides, but feeling baby kicking all the time, and constantly obsessing about everything pertaining to pregnancy/childbirth/newborns, is part of the fun side I think!

i think birthing classes are helpful so you know your options for birth and aren't shocked about all that recovery entails too.

i agree, our little miss likes to kick up a storm about 3am, but its okay. all part of the fun and figuring out how to alternate sides all night without getting numb on both sides at the same time, lol.

you do look great. pregnancy is treating you well.

gosh you are such a cute preggos lady! makes me jealous! :) so listen, we didn't have any birthing classes whatsoever and aaron did great! it was no bigs. the husband just has to be loving and attentive and not annoying.
have bobby talk to aaron.

You look so freaking cute! I want to see the baby bump in person...and it has been too long since we've seen you anyway. And I am actually a side sleeper by choice...there's nothing better. :)

I'd say the birthing class depends on whether you plan to be medicated or not...they're helpful either way in letting you know what's going to happen, not only during but after as well, but I'd say if you're planning on not being medicated the classes are much more necessary, for you and Bobby. That's my 2 cents - you look so fabulous, by the way!

You look beautiful! Bobby's job is to be there - hold your hand and let you know your not alone. He'll do it - they know how to be strong when we really need them.
