Has anyone attended their antenatal classes yet? I started mine on Tuesday, most of it I knew already, but it was more that I wanted my OH to go so he knew what would be happening! Anyway, the midwife had a video of a womans labour condensed down to 20 minutes. She said if we didn't want to see it obviously we could go. I had always said I would never watch one of these but when it came down to it I wanted to and so decided to stay. Also my OH has fainted at the sight of blood before so I thought it would be good to see how he reacted. All the way through I've been really relaxed about the labour, and just thought I'll take it as it comes and have pain relief if I need it, but this video has changed all that now and I'm terrified! The pain of the contractions looked unbelievable, and the actual delivery - how can it stretch that much????!!!! On the plus side my OH wasn't bothered by it at all and said he thought it wasn't as bad as he imagined! Needless to say I went home and ate lots of chocolate to cheer myself up! I just have to try and erase it from my memory in the next 3 weeks!
