stuff no one tells you #1

we attended our first prenatal class this week. it focused on our anatomy, and the changes that occur when you go into labor. we also started practicing some breathing techniques. here the things i learned (and remembered)

  1. most women’s water breaks at the hospital
  2. every mom is scared about pooping during labor
  3. to check how far you are dilated, a nurse spreads her fingers in your cervix
  4. the “bloody show” is a real thing

fear of your water breaking in public
