Birth Class

Well, I thought I was going to have this detailed post all about how Nick and I went to our birth class this weekend. It has been on our calendar for ages and we have both been dreading it and sorta looking forward to it at the same time. It seems really long. It's from nine to five and has a tour of the hospital and nursery, plus some sort of birth instructions. Who knows. All I know is that the office said it was a really good idea for first time parents to go, and we are all about taking the doctors advice. I got my shift covered at work and Nick and I were right on time as we rolled into the office at nine am yesterday. We had our two pillows and we were ready for a day of baby knowledge. The only problem...we seemed to be the only people there. Not the only couple. The only PEOPLE. Lights off, doors locked. Yeah.

So I paged the on call doctor because maybe we were in the wrong place. Apparently we were in the correct place (the doctor's office...hard to miss) but we were a little early. A week early. Right. It's next Saturday. All last week I kept telling people I thought it was the strangest thing for them to schedule it on Derby Day...obviously that would have been weird. Which is why they put it the week after. Awesome.


  1. Are you going to the class at SJE? It was really informational, but very lengthy and could be shorter. Have fun, let me know who your teacher is and your thoughts. We can chat via email.
    Have a great week, your little baby will be here before you know it!

  2. Oh that's too funny!
    Have fun at your class next week instead!

  3. Hahahahaha! I know that sucks to have been there, but that is SOOO funny! :)

    We are so crazy about our dates & appointments, aren't we!?

    Hope you have a sweet time there THIS Saturday!
