Most of my Day 4 was spent going through some film logging business with the movie I had been working on back in Oct. and Nov. I was a bit frustrated with communication problems and technical difficulties but I guess it’s a good thing because many hours zoomed past. I also took care of some bill and insurance stuff, not exciting, but strangely enough I liked marking a few things off my to do list for the day. All of this was easily done from a reclining position, I promised myself that I would take things extremely easy and am doing OK so far. I’m feeling great, babies seem to be happily jostling around.
I saved a lot of energy because this evening was our first class offered by the hospital. It’s official name “Labor and Birth Preparation – Multiples”. It’s a two hour class held on 3 days – Monday (3/1), Wednesday (3/3) and Monday (3/8). Did I find the class useful…eh…not so far. Seems like if they require you to be at least 5-6 months along, its a waste of time to explain to us what twins are, fraternal vs. identical, etc. Honestly this is the “basics” class, so I will be a bit more patient. The next class should cover more specific stuff about this hospital’s rules on pain medication, intervention, etc. They showed a bit of a lame DVD and the documentarian side of my brain kept going over about a thousand different ways I could have made the video more useful. I opted out of “floor exercises” which consisted of laying on your side and breathing slowly for 5 minutes. I will note that they had the least comfortable chairs in the world to sit in and my preggo ass was turning quite numb despite having to move and slide and jostle for any position that would seem OK for more than 10 minutes.
I look forward tomorrow to catching up on blogs, until then I feel a stranger in a strange land.
