Maternity Open House

Tuesday, June 9, 2009

We went to the Maternity Open House @ the hospital yesterday night. They had a power point of what to expect when you get to the hospital and procedures and pain options and stuff like that. It was interesting. I am glad that we went because I feel a little less clueless about the whole process now. After the power point we got to tour the hospital, that was the point where it was like OH MY GOODNESS I AM ACTUALLY GOING TO GIVE BIRTH TO A BABY! Yikes!! Seeing the rooms in labor and delivery and seeing the tiny babies in the nursery definitely made it so much more real to me! I think it became more real for Brian too. We are so excited for our little girl to arrive!

Tomorrow I have a doctors appointment and then I am going to a Budget for Baby class on base. I am not really sure what to expect from this class especially since we already do the Dave Ramsey thing but I hear that you get a bunch of free baby stuff just for going. :)

We did Budget for Baby too. In my opinion the free stuff makes it worth it. You'll definitely be way ahead of most people though having already done Financial Peace. Yay for free stuff anyway!

Yeah, I was told to do Budget for Baby too, just for the free stuff! I don't remember why, but we didn't end up doing it. Probably lack of time from when Greg got home till we had him...anyway, like Jenny said, free stuff is great!
