Thoughts Regarding A Birthing Class

Josh and I attended a two day birthing class over the weekend.  The following are just a few of our thoughts:

Kathleen:  A girl in our class attended on Sat. and then went into labor that night.  By the time our class was over the next day she had her baby boy.  I was jealous.
Josh:  Class was good but I didn't really need to see other people giving birth to babies.
Kathleen:  Yes, the average time to labor is 16 hours, lets push for less than 10.  Any chances I can pull that off?
Josh:  Our instructor was very animated and the classroom chairs were really uncomfortable.
Kathleen:  There are a lot of positions and ways to labor and the best thing is to do what feels best, not what looks best.  Just don't labor on your back in bed.
Josh:  It was very informative and it was very fun to see the little baby girl in the hospital nursery.
Kathleen:  Wow, this labor is going to bring a lot of pain.

Men are from Mars, women are from Venus. Thus, we view life's experiences from very different point of view, don't we????

Josh--I didn't realize I was going to have to take days off work after labor to recover! ;)
