|the not so lovely "glucosoda"|
We went to another baby class. This one was an orientation to child delivery and also about anesthesia options. It was not exactly helpful. I don't know what my expectations were but it definitely didn't meet them. They showed two videos that were totally 80s. I think they need to review the material they teach and bring it more up to date. There are a lot of women these days that labor longer at home and do not jump into modern medicine practices. Also, a lot of women these days have birth plans and that should be something they discuss in the class as well. I think if I were not a nurse the class would have been more informative. I'm glad we went though, because if I hadn't I may be curious as to what I missed or could have learned.
This past Sunday Jon and I made a trip to Longview to get Lillian's crib! A few days before, my friend Meagan sent me a link to a Craigslist listing for a white wrought iron bed. I immediately responded to the listing and made a deal with the seller. I was so excited when we got there on Sunday and the bed was everything I wanted! When we first started looking at beds for Lillian I wanted a wrought iron bed but quickly changed my mind because it was not quite in our budget. I had given up on the idea, so when Meagan sent me the listing I was beyond excited! It is so beautiful and looks good in her room already!! Of course we still need a mattress and to have the bedding made, but just having a bed for her is a big relief! We have also picked out the color we want to paint her room. Hopefully Jon will be able to start painting within the next couple weeks.
