Birthing classes

On this day in 1929: Roger Bannister was born (first man to run a sub 4 minute mile)

Well, after more than a week of relaxing (on the blogging front), I’ve finally found 5 minutes to write something. Mostly, it’s been work, work, work. A very busy week last week with big football and rugby games and of course, St Patrick’s Day.

I’ve also been out riding my bike a bit again, managing a 35km ride yesterday afternoon. With the weather improving every day, I should be able to ride more often. We change over to summer time this weekend, so it will get dark later which will help too. For those of you who don’t know, I am doing a 100 mile charity ride in May. All contributions are welcome!!

The most interesting thing that I have done over the past 2 weeks is birthing classes. As our baby is due in just over 4 weeks, we started these classes last week. Last week was mainly about getting to know the other parents-to-be and asking questions of the midwife about birth, labour, babys and PAIN (not that I will feel much of that)! This week we (I use the term very loosely) discussed natural ways of easing the pain during labour. We then got to watch a video of a birth. Not the best movie I’ve ever seen. If I was a woman having my first, I reckon it would scare the crap outta me!! Screaming, panting, 6 hour labour, blood and baby poo everywhere… no thanks!!

Deb has stopped working now, so the baby’s room is coming on in leaps and bounds. Most things are ready. She has even started preparing her hospital bag. If you want to read more about it, check out our baby blog.

Chat soon,

    A 35km bike ride? How far is that, like 50 feet? I don’t do metric.
