We had our antenatal class today, a little later than planned due to our previous class being cancelled so out of everyone I was one of the most pregnant. The class covered a variety of different things including pain relief, birthing options, signs of labour and a little on what to do when the baby arrives.
We have now reached 36 weeks! My midwife is currently on holiday so I saw a different one today who was lovely. We spoke about my birth plan and my wish for a water birth. As long as I go over 37 weeks and continue to have a pregnancy without complications hopefully this will be possible. I also want to try and give birth with only gas and air, however I can sit here and say this now, it might be a different story when it comes round to giving birth!
Our baby is also now fully engaged so even though my midwife says most first babies are late I’m keeping my fingers crossed she comes in time for Christmas.
