Well, welly, well. Yesterday was officially December 1st, which means exactly one month to my due date if you can belive it. It's amazing how the time flies. Don't you all feel like it was just yesterday I started posting these intimate details of my pregnancy? And now I will have to begin a new chapter.
So I am open to comments and suggestions. Should I change the name of the blog once baby arrives? Should I start a new one and keep them separate: one pregnancy and one motherhood? Whaddya think?
Last night was our last prenatal class. And I gotta admit, I'm a little bummed. It was so fun meeting other cool future moms and dads. Hopefully we will run into a familiar face in the hospital. And there is a post-partum meeting scheduled in Feb for the group once our babies are roughly 6 weeks old. There was definitely one woman I totally clicked with, I think I mentioned her last week. She has the same sarcastic sense of humour and I think it would be fun to hang out with her once the babies are here. Her hubby works for the only film and TV industry paper in Canada as an editor. So they are a lot like us. There's also another cute guy in the class (works at the CBC writing docs) and his partner, who seems very nice if totally shy. Or maybe she was just speechless since I was flirting with her man? Was I? Probablyhe's got a fab wardrobe after all.
At the start of class we were given dolls the size and weight of four month old babies. We had to hold them like footballs and then move them diagonally over our nipples, as though we were feeding them. It was so weird. She showed us a few different techniques for holding the baby while breastfeeding and then we watched yet another video. The video was actually super cute. The way the baby starts to stick its tongue out all lizard like. Everyone was giggling over that. It's funny how we all try to act so cool, but then you see a baby do what it's supposed to and you get all giggly and gooey.
The rest of the class involved going over what we'd learned so far. Then we all took a photo together. I don't have it yet, or I'd post it here.
On another note, I think I've started to "drop". I feel the baby much lower now (right in the groin and it's painful) and my belly is starting to look lower too. Got my work Christmas party tonight -- my last big party for a long time. Bought a new top and pair of pants for it, since it's in the ultra swish York Event Theatre. There's a company here in Toronto that takes the old movie theatres and turns them into tony reception halls. Will post a photo of me when I have one.
