I was privy to some GREAT
I went with DD (dear daughter) to her OB/GYN appointment yesterday. This was her first appointment with the doctor here, since she was living in TX at the beginning of her pregnancy. The doctor was going over all the rules/requirements for the next two months. We thought that DD (and her pregnancy coach = ME) would be required to attend "Epidural Class" that many hospitals require. I have been dreading this class since I am a "Big Time Fainter". How embarrassing would it be to faint during this class, especially when I'm not even the Mom-to-be"??!! Yes. I have done this sort of thing many times before...Imagine my relief when he said it was "NOT REQUIRED!". *Insert Happy Dance here!
I'm from the school of thought that sometimes one can actually have too much information. DD wants the epidural, and knows what/how it's done. Spare us the pictures and the video of the actual procedure. I've had them before but don't care to "see" the nitty-gritty!
Pity DD who has me for her labor coach, as I'm not very good "nursing" material. I think I can do this. I watched my last child being born (but I'd had some good drugs at that point), and I also saw my youngest granddoll born. I think I can do this.
With all the adrenaline that comes with the excitement of a birth,
I should be "good to go"!
