Saturdays are for Housework..

Well, if things were normal around here that's usually true. But things are changing and so I'm getting used to the fact that my normal routine is about to completely morph into something totally different..
John and I had the 2nd part of our birthing class today. Last week we went over the general biological process and then watched 5 different births with different scenerios. As John pointed out (great analogy that my hubby made) it was like being forced to watch a torture video just before enduring torture. I have to say I'm a little apprehensive about what it's gonna take to get this baby out of me but I surely can't say I didn't know what to expect. ~We learned breathing techniques but most of them made me feel like I wasn't getting enough air.
This week we covered postpartum issues and took a tour of the Labor and Delivery area at Huntsville Hopsital. I had no idea the Labor and Delivery rooms were so big and set up kind of like a living room. Although I don't know many living rooms with monitors, baby stations and beds that conveniently turn into a reclining mattress chair with stirrips. "There's no place like home" might be stretching it just a little bit, but even so they looked more comfortable than what I was expecting.
Now that I'm home, the bathroom needs cleaning, our bedroom needs straightening up, and I really need to vacuum, but I just can't do it. My body is screaming to lay on this couch for the next hour until it's time to go to a cousin's baby shower at 4pm. So put your feet up and relax. I know I am.

Oh yeah! Things are gonna change alright! But you will adapt to those changes just like you would with anything else. It will just take you some time, some pain meds, and some serious prayers!
