Here is a photo of a little game, more like exercise, we got to do...
make that I since Kevin was out of town for business.
Kevin and I have been going to birthing classes for...6 weeks now.
We have 1 more week and then a class on 'The Happiest Baby on the Block.'
We are that.awkward.couple. who laughs at awkward and inappropriate parts.
I can't help it.
I don't know how people can be so mature in class.
For instance, I laugh at weird noises people make while pushing.
And probably the best example...
It was time to practice 'breathing techniques' which I am not even sure I'll use lol.
our teacher dimmed the lights, we got out our pillows (we were told to bring 2 pillows to class that day), relaxing music was playing in the background, and the teacher had us practice different breathing techniques.
"Ha ha ha...hoo/hee"
Or whatever you wanna it to be like.
Well, of course I start hysterically laughing.
Every other couple in the class was focused and super into it.
That made it even more awkward.
Then she said for the husband to squeeze tightly onto the wife's arms/legs/whatever to be like a contraction and for the wife to practice her breathing to distract herself from the 'contraction'.
Well, Kevin chose my calves and when it was time for the contraction he squeezed my calves SO HARD and I lost it. Again, we both started laughing uncontrollably.
And of course whenever they play cheesy birthing movies, I always have to struggle not to laugh.
I know, horrible. There are just so many awkward parts.
If you are awkward and going to attend a birthing class, I recommend wearing your hair down so you can hide in it if you need to.
Are we ready to be parents? Who knows? Haha.
I don't know if anyone really ever is, so I'm not too worried about it.
My birth plan is to have a healthy baby and lets just say I'm really looking forward to a nice epidural.
