I’m a week late on my 32 week post, but things have been CRAZY around here! Since my last update, I have finished all of my coursework, made the move to Omaha, started childbirth classes, unpacked my house, and had a fantastic baby shower! As busy as the past few weeks have been, it’s all been a really great experience! Now I’m ready to focus 100% on preparing for little Miss Murnan to get here!
J and I started childbirth classes 2 days after arriving in Omaha – nothing like jumping right in! We have a 7 week prepared childbirth course as well as some additional classes scattered throughout the weeks. I was really impressed with the childbirth class. It was very interesting and engaging. I felt as though we left with some very useful tips and information. I also left leaving feeling like I had a lot more to learn – I guess that’s what the next 6 weeks are for!
We also went to an advanced relaxation course last week. It dealt with strategies for pain management throughout the stages of labor. It wasn’t quite as helpful as I had hoped, but I left with a better idea of what additional questions and concerns I want answered – at least that’s something, right?! :)
I met with my Dr. here in Omaha for the 2nd time last week. I felt completely reassured that I made the right decision – she’s great! J was busy with work and my mom happened to be in town helping me unpack the house, so she came along to the appointment. It was really cool to have her there to hear the baby’s heartbeat and meet my Dr. The best news of the appointment….. baby is no longer breech!!!
We’ll be doing one more ultrasound next week since my Dr. here has never seen any of my previous ultrasound images. I’m really excited to see how much our baby girl has developed since 27 weeks!
