NCT AnteNatal classes

Did our first ante-natal class tonight and it went quite well.

As the topic was on labour, all my worries and fears about money and whether we'll give birth to a drug dealing chav were replaced by all sorts of labour-related worries.

We discussed the pros and cons of home birth over hospital birth, got to know some other new parents to be (and realised we're the only ones in the class not going to Mayday hospital in Croydon), shared some tea and biscuits and basically figured out that come labour time, there's going to be no rest for the wicked or the parents to be.

First time labour can last up to 24 hours, so I'm gearing up for quite an emotional day or two come early March.

Not sure what we're discussing next week, but I'm looking forward to it.
