    Hi
    I'm due August 15th. Haveyou all been to antenatal classes yet as I've just found out I'm too late to go to the one in my area and I wondered if they make much of a difference or not?

    hi hearts, I have my last one tonight, although there called parent education classes there along the same lines. Altogether we have 4 lessons at 2 hours each, They were useful if you have never had children before as they covered things like what to expect in labour we discussed all the types of pain relief and what each one does. We were told of what complications might occur during child birth and what they the midwifes would do if it was to happen, we were told about the benefits of breast feeding how to do it and most importantly how to percivere if it doesn't start off too well. Tonight we are discussing life after birth and what to expect in the first few weeks of motherhood.
    I did enjoy the classes and learnt alot and in a way its prepared me for whats to come, I'm sure your midwife will be able to give you all the info you want as you couldn't get into ante natal classes just ask her/him.

    I would say classes are worth it or some good pregnancy books can tell you the same info, but practical demos are great and my other half benefitted too and he thought they were going to be a girlie thing but they are good for all. Hope you get into a class somewhere :)

    Does anyone else feel these final weeks are dragging? I have still just under 6 weeks to go and I'm getting really anxious, excited and frustraited now. Hows everyone else feeling?
    I feel so sorry for elephants.
    If anyone wants to chat on msn I'd be happy to, it will pass the boring days in at home waiting for LO to make an appearence.

    take care ladys
    Alicia.

    I was due august 8th as many of you have read. I had my baby boy July 7th a month premature but we are both doing great he was 7lbs 8oz and 19 inches long. Good luck with all of your pregnancies and enjoy what is left, you will miss it.
