In a bar in a remote village in Spain, close to the city of Olite, there is a sign placed there by the owner. "Just as I succeeded in finding all the answers, all the questions changed." The master says: "We are always concerned with finding answers. We feel that answers are important to understand what life means. "It is more important to live fully, and allow time to reveal to us the secrets of our existence. If we are too concerned with making sense of life, we prevent nature from acting, and we become unable to read God's signs." Paolo Coelho~ Maktub
Yeh, so much for an inspirational title! Good news I passed my 3 hours glucose test which means, I don't have gestational diabetes, yey! I was worried about that since I'm very bad at following a strict diet. I've never been able to follow any sort of diet, I lack a certain discipline that is necessary for things like that.
I also started childbirth classes on Tuesday and I'm loving them. The first class was very informative and I think it's also an opportunity for my husband and I to bond with the baby. He's been so busy with work recently that we barely spend any time together. It's gonna be good to spend these 2 hours every week together bonding with the baby and experimenting some breathing, massage and comfort techniques that are supposed to help during labor.
Apparently these are normal Newborn Characteristics per my childbirth classes:
-The baby's head may have an odd shape. It may look pointy and long or too large for the small body. Don't panic, that is normal!
-The eyes may appear puffy and seem out of focus. Don't worry, that is normal!
-The skin may look wrinkled, red or scaly. It will peel off during the first week of birth! Don't panic!
