Turns out I'm a cm dilated and 60% effaced. The end of being pregnant is near!
Dan and I have also started taking birthing education classes from our Doula. The first meeting felt long, but again, it kept me up past my bed time, so the last hour was tainted by the fact that I wanted to be in pjs and sleeping already.
We are in the class with two other couples. One of which I know through a friend, and we were facebook pals, even though we met for the first time at the meeting.
Our doula open the class up by wanting to talk about our fears with child birth. Seemed like a good idea. The other two women both talked about the pain involved with pushing a human out of their body. I'm not too worried about that - which I don't know why, especially after my last exam open my eyes to the whole new world of pain I will soon be experiencing. When it came to me I talked about control, or the lack thereof that I'll have/not have in the birth. And I cried a lot. It was a bit awkward to be snot faced in front of 5 strangers, but whatever. I'm pregnant. I'm gonna cry if I want to.
We'll be meeting for the next three Mondays, which if baby Swift stays put until her due date, it will work fine. If not, well, then we'll get hands on training with birthing education!
The last new development in our baby world is Dan and I took the leap from talking about using cloth diapers to actually buying our cloth diapers. We are picking them up on Saturday. I'm super excited (about diapers...?)! We are using Bum Genius if you are curious. You can be sure I'll let you know what I think. *And because I just have to share, our diapers are coming in Butternut, Clementine, Twilight, Ribbit, and White. There going to be a cute diaper butt in our future!
