Lamaze or not to Lamaze?

Only... there is NO question!

Grant and I skipped out on our last Lamaze class. We feel like they were not beneficial and that they were actually doing more harm than good. Harm might be harsh! They were just a waste of time. The videos were disturbing and didn't teach us anything. The teacher was REALLY strange and would mainly talk about her own experience in child birth. We learned a little about breathing but in the end no video is going to prepare us for what is about to happen. How did the women do it years ago? Did they take a class? Did they sit on a bouncy ball in a shower naked? Did they lay in the hallway screaming at their husbands? I think NOT! So... Grant and I decided to go on a date. We went to one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in Seal Beach instead.

On Sunday we are buying the crib and changing table for Jake. I'm so excited! Our chair came in and we have to pick that up as well. Just seems like things are coming along just perfectly. Jake is getting big. I have 8 weeks left to my pregnancy! He is about 4lbs now! He is really active at night... And I can see his feet push out of my skin! I went in for another 4D ultrasound and they told me that he was yet again breech, and that his arms were covering his face. When he did uncover his face the umbilical cord was in the way. So, 4D part 2 didn't quite work out. I go to the doctors next Tuesday for my 32/33 week check up. From what I understand Jake still has some time to turn around... I have been researching exercises that may help in this process. I'll keep you all updated!

In other good news Grant got a text from his friend AJ. He and his beautiful wife Allison had their baby at 1am this morning! Bowman was 10 lbs and 5 oz! We are so happy for them and will keep praying for health and happiness!

Hope all of you enjoy your weekend! Will blog more later!

Love and Cheers,

  1. My jaw dropped when I read 10lbs 5oz!!! I cannot even imagine! Seriously, you are right! A class will not help you, because every pregnancy is different. I am sure Jake will turn before you know it. I honestly didn't even notice when Addison turned! You really can't plan everything, and I can't stress that enough. Carlos wanted to cut the umbilical cord, but it was wrapped around Addison's neck 2x, so he wasn't able to do it. He was so upset, and even this day it bothers him a little bit, but when it comes down to it, you want the best for your baby, and 'planning' sometimes goes out the window!
