Wes and I have had several classes at the hospital, including 3 labor classes, a class on breastfeeding, a class on what to expect after the baby is born and how to choose a pediatrician, and a tour of the labor and delivery units of the hospital. Needless to say, we have been pretty busy preparing for the arrival of our little man!

During two of our labor classes, we watched clips of three different women giving birth via natural childbirth (that is, without pain medication). I admit, I was somewhat concerned with how Wes would do watching an actual birth, without anything being blurred out or skipped over. However, he surprised me! He didn't turn his head, he didn't become ill, he didn't make any comments about it being "gross" or anything like that. Not that I expected he would do any of those things, but you never know what to expect when a guy watches something like that, right?

I'm confident that Wes is prepared for our own birthing experience. And, I know without a shadow of a doubt that he is going to be an amazing labor coach! I couldn't be more thankful to have such an amazingly supportive husband to encourage me through the labor and delivery of our son. :)

Good luck with everything. God is in it so it will all be good. But let me just tell you all the classes in the world will not come close to preparing you for what you are about to experience!
