Stephen and I have started taking a 4 week prenatal class at the Utah Valley Regional Hospital. This last Monday was our second class, there are only four classes once a week. This last time they had us watch a birthing video. One word: AAAAGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Well I guess that's not really a word) I don't do well with blood and stuff, and apparently Stephen doesn't either because his eyes started watering, NOT because he was getting emotional but because he thought he was going to gag. THEN... the baby appeared and you kind of forget what it is your looking at and just focus on the baby's head and then its' body. Even Stephen's watery eyes transformed into tears of joy as he started imagining himself as that future father holding the baby newborn boy. We watched about 5 different births; from the woman with pre-eclampsia to a c-section to the woman who did it without the epidural. Yes, we saw it all. After the video they took us on a tour of the hospital. The room where the baby would be delivered, the nursery, and our room that we would stay in after he comes. It was all so surreal to believe what we will be experiencing soon. Not soon enough and yet, "aghhhh" when he does come. That's all.
P.S. I fibbed a bit on the pregnancy ticker. My original due date was August 10th, but when we had our ultrasound the lady said he was further along, or further developed and said there was a good possibility of him being born about 10 days early. BUT it wasn't officially official, she just said there was a good chance. So I started telling people that asked that my due date was August 1st. Wishful thinking. Maybe if I believe it, it will happen.
