Hmm I just googled those classes @Wishnhope and they look good, did many partners attend as well, or was it more just pregnant women? I can imagine it'd be hard to convince DH to go. Having said that he's in South Africa for another week anyway (hopefully not getting Ebola), so at the moment my main concern is that I'll have to have a c/s at Thursday's growth scan and he won't here, neither of us have family nearby so it could be an interesting day.
misti most of the attendees were couples only a couple of women came solo due to working Husbands. Some looked thoroughly bored, others (like my DH thankfully) were very interested and asking questions. Im sure you'll be ok if you go alone and hoping for good news at Thursday's scan.
Those classes are amazing! I went to one last year for Uni and I so wish that I had've done one before I had my son because it would have made it all so much easier. Glad I have been to one before breastfeeding this time round.
My ankles and feet are so swollen and no amount of rest helps I think I will end up needing to wear compression stockings to help as I still have at least another 8 weeks on my feet.
Re the breastfeeding classes my MIL's response was "why on earth would you go to a breastfeeding class when you dont have a baby?" Being well informed I guess isn't something the previous generation Understands
^^ the stockings are fantastic!
My feet were still swollen the first two days of wear but I could see it going down.
Just DONT wear them sleeping or napping.
I am doing the breastfeeding class next month while DH goes to a first time fathers session.
Sad day in baysides household today... After a long and determined fight to the end DHs father sadly passed away today. Was expected, but still sucks. We were hoping against all hope that he might have made it to see the twins born, but alas, the last couple of weeks were to be too much of a stretch for him.
Sorry for the downer post. The timing is such a cruel twist of fate....
