August 23rd.In our second Bradley class we talked about nutrition. I have to keep a food log so she can make sure we are receiving enough protein. Protein is something I stepped up recently so I am doing just fine. It’s perfect timing for me to stare at my food choices on paper every day.
We did another relaxation exercise. This time she got us into a deep relaxed state that I almost felt hypnotized. Then our husbands had to simulate a contraction through digging deep into several different muscles. I kept asking Matt if he was trying his hardest because I really didn’t feel any pain, just pressure. The key is for us to learn how to do this on our own. I have no problem getting myself relaxed but I have to work on staying that way for hours.
We are getting ready for our “babymoon” vacation to Hilton Head. I am so ready to relax in the ocean before we come back to crunch time of getting ready for baby. I plan to read no baby books while on the beach, just a couple fiction books on my list.
