    Default hypnobabies experience so far and a question...

    I just completed my first week and I've noticed a few things about the hypnosis and I was wondering if its happened to anyone else.

    First off I notice that I am falling asleep or I feel like I am and I go in and out of levels of consciousness and I will all of a sudden hear what she is saying in the CD...also as I've listened to the CD now several times every time I listen to it again I notice things I didn't hear before. Its really strange. One time I fell asleep and I didn't wake up when she counted up but was jolted awake by the sound of complete silence as my track had ended!!

    I'm afraid I'm not getting everything because I am either too relaxed and not hearing everything or asleep.

    Also my DH came into the room yesterday (and was making noise ) as I was doing my CD and I HEARD him and it brought me up a level or two of consciousness but didn't break it, I had to concentrate for a moment to get back to where I was. I guess thats good.

    Otherwise its great and I am sleeping SO good at night now!! Love my affirmations!!

    My Hypnobirthing instructor said not to worry at all about falling asleep during relaxations--your subconscious is still working. That said, I do find that I want both my conscious and subconscious minds to know what I'm doing here, so I try to listen to stuff sitting up on the couch in broad daylight as well as in bed at night. I fall asleep in bed but during the day I can usually make it through and stay conscious.

    It feels like I fall asleep too, but I'm not really sure if I am "asleep" as I always wake up at the end or just after the end. So that makes me think that my sub-conscious is paying attention ya know? I even do that if I listen during the day, wide awake, sitting up on the couch... it's crazy. So I have just succumbed to the process and am having faith that I am absorbing everything.

    I am on week 2 of my CD's. I noticed that I seemed to fall asleep a lot last week, but I think I was experiencing more of that hypno-amnesia that she mentions, because if I stayed awake, I could tell that I had heard it before. This week, I have stayed awake every time, I think because I am more actively engaged in learning the techniques.

    My main problems are: when I turn "off" my mouth hangs open, especially if I am sitting in a chair. Not only do I feel like I look dead or something, or at least dorky, but my mouth gets really dry and I have to move my mouth and tongue around. I haven't been turning "on" to do that, but maybe I should be?
    Also, I always seem to get an itch on my nose or something, so I have just been trying to ignore it. But it can be a little distracting.

    I really enjoy doing the scripts, and would do them much more often if I could. Once a day is what I am getting in, so I know that is enough. I hope that the Hypno-anesthesia is actually taking place. I will just trust that it is. I did get a sore back during one of the scripts and tried to focus the anesthesia on that area and the discomfort faded away completely.

    It's really exciting to have other moms doing the hypnosis on this board because I am totally thrilled with this new experience and love hearing all about others' experiences, too!

    Elizabeth, I get an inevitable itch too lol. What I have been doing is focusing my anesthesia on that spot and saying to myself, "it is not itching, it feels fuzzy". That has been working quite well. I also have a terribly dry mouth afterwards. It kindof reassures me that I am actually in hypnosis and not just sleeping though because I don't have a dry mouth like that when I wake up in the mornings. Very interesting! And I am also glad to be sharing these experiences with you ladies

    This may sound stupid, but you can download the CDs to your iPod right? I'm just imagining trying to manage my laptop in bed, falling asleep, and it crashing to the floor.

    I was wondering about this....I went to the hypnobabies website but all I could find were the affirmation tracks and it would be nice to have it all on my ipod!

    Yes, I have had no trouble putting the scripts on my IPOD. All I do is just pop the CD in my computer and then it guides me from there. I did have to do some maneuvering once I got them downloaded to get them into playlists, etc, but it is possible. I put one class together separated by the affirmations in a playlist so that just in case I don't wake up immediately it will only play through that week and the affirmations.
