What a waste of a day.

Seriously glad I did not pay for that class. Wasn't any new information, seemed like the first half of the class was information aimed at first trimesterers, this is a class that the suggested was 32-36 weeks. They did a couple of position tryouts but really it wasn't anything any normal person couldn't figure out. I fell asleep for like a half hour after lunch and she was like maybe two slides advanced... I dunno, I guess if we pulled anything out of it, my sister (who is my birthing support person) is set on having some sort of instruction manual so she doesn't freak out, which is ok with me, DH freaks out enough for an entire room full of people.

Been having contractions on and off for a couple days, they get to about 7 mins apart lasting for 2 mins for a couple hours then putter out. Quite annoying. On the upside my baby shower is tomorrow, it is mostly my sisters though, but I will post some pics afterwards...

Sorry your class was a waste of time but YAY for a baby shower! SO fun!

I'm still only having inconsistent BHs. They only last like 10-15 seconds...2 minutes is a long time. Yikes.

Sounds about like what I'm experiencing. It really sucks!

Sorry about your class. Sad

Apparently I'm having a baby shower tomorrow too. I just found out my sweet friend is throwing one. I'm kind of in a panic because I don't do well as center of attention. I'd rather be throwing a shower for someone else, ya know?

Baby shower was a success, so blessed to have such a great family and friends (ok well they are my older sisters friends cause I am a loooooser.) Got lots of stuff, had a great time. Tasty cake, lemon with strawberry filling nom. Will post pics when my sister puts them up, I guess I tend to make funny faces when posing for the opening of the gifts pictures soooo hopefully there are a couple decent ones.

The shower sounds great!! Crazy that your "practice contractions" last 2 minutes. Mine only last for 45 seconds or so in active labor until the VERY end.

Yeah, the two mins for contractions throws me off too, my body has always been weird, so I just chalk it up to that...

All that said, I'd almost pay money for a real contraction...
