Apostrophy Designs: Preparing For Pam

Preparing For Pam

I have not really felt like blogging lately mostly because time is just flying by a little too quick for my liking...and things are becoming a little bit scary here at the homestead.

Scary because we have starting taking our "Birthing" Classes, which I should add to my list of things I do when I can't sleep [or has become the number one reason for NOT sleeping]...


I signed up for this class with false expectations, I really felt like they would tell me more about what to do with Pam once she was born and not so much every detail that birthing entails. 

[I use the term birthing because I really, really like the way it sounds, less scary than LABOR]

Not in anyway do I mean to play a whoa-is-me card, because I have been feeling really good throughout this whole pregnancy, but as week 34 approaches my nerves can't help but catch up with me. 

I've been trying a few things to help with the nerves...


But let's face it, practicing my gang signs does NOTHING for NO ONE! 

Anyone got any better ideas?

oh tor i feel your pain. i remember those nerves all too well. sad thing is i still had them with my 3rd c-section. you would think i would be fine knowing what was going to happen, but i wasn't. i think it's worse with your first. i remember every night going to bed wondering, is tonight 'the' night. so much to do in that last little while and i never felt prepared. i think it's all just the unknown. i will say, you will do wonderful. you will be an amazing mom and you've had your fair share of helping with little ones, and big ones too. :0) we love you tor and we're so excited for baby a, pamela, to arrive. here's to a good nights sleep.

I remember thinking the same thing after we brought Norah home! Don't get me wrong, I LOVED our Bradley birthing classes and understanding what was going on during the birthing process really helped me feel more in control. Giving birth was something I was doing, not just something that was happening to me. That being said, I really think some class explaining the reality of first-time parenting would have been a good idea for me. My point at the end of this too-long comment, just relax. Seriously, don't panic, don't go crazy, and don't be afraid to ask for help. It's fabulous and you'll be grrrreat! Pamela is a lucky girl already!
