are we ready?

Last week we went on the hospital tour of Northside. Saturday we did an all day birthing class. I think that means we are supposed to be fully informed and ready to go. The hospital tour was really great. I left thinking I couldn't wait to come back and stay there for a few days. I mean, the labor and delivery rooms have flat screen TVs. The birthing class could have been a lot better, but it really had nothing to do with the class. I think it was just one of those things where they could have just given me the book to read and I would have been set. We watched a video made in 1972 of five births. I think the only things Seth took away from the whole day were the following:

1) He wants to have a long 70's style mustache and no beard when we go to have this baby.

2) He also wants me to be wearing glasses that are cover half my face (even though I don't wear glasses or contacts right now).

3) He wants to locate the slow motion music from the video where right after the baby comes out it is ever so slowly brought up for the mom to hold. If you see him, ask him how the tune goes. He'll probably sing it for you.

So needless to say we could have saved the money and just asked for the book. BUT, it was worth finding that out I suppose. Let's say that we are about as ready as we can be mentally.

Physically, I AM READY. This baby already weighs 4 and a half pounds. I still have 7 1/2 weeks to go! We also had another 3D ultrasound on Sunday and found out that the baby is breech. The kind of breech (called Frank) where the baby's legs are up basically straight up in front of it. Therefore, all we saw on the ultrasound was a jumble of hands and feet totally covering the face. We got one shot of the face and some insanely chubby cheeks. Anyway, keep your fingers crossed that our plump little ninja gymnast does another flip around before the big day. Mommy doesn't want to have a c-section. Of course, I just want a happy healthy baby. So whichever way it happens I will be fine with it.
