I started to feel more kicks and wiggles this week! This week’s big thing was I had a friend who told me all about a hypnobirthing class she is taking (she is due way ahead of me), and it sounded so cool. This friend has a very similar personality to me, and the more she talked about it, the more I liked it. I tried to sign up for classes, but you have to sign up in your area, and I don’t want to do it in person because of COVID (AZ instructors are only in person), so I opted for the home study course.
If you’ve had a positive experience with natural labor with or without hypnobirthing materials, I’d love to hear! I spent a lot of time thinking back to the experience I had with KJ. You can read the full birth story here. While I wouldn’t change my labor story with KJ because it was what I needed at the time. The more I think about it, the more I’d like to avoid an epidural or really any intervention if possible this time.
I had some heartburn during working out this week, which was annoying but went away shortly after finishing my workouts.
