Alexis has been moving more the past couple days, after freaking me out the week before. She would go for HOURS without moving, making me very anxious. I had a chat with her and told her she can't scare me like that. So she has listened so far and has been moving around much more. I bought her two dresses yesterday. They look similar, but I couldn't decide which one I liked better, so I bought both. I can't wait to see her in them. Enjoy!

New Classes & New Dresses
On Wednesday, May 20th we started our Bradley birthing classes. We chose Bradley over Lamaze because I really want to try and have a natural drug-free birth. Bradley classes focus on drug-free births and over 80% of its participants suceed in having a drug-free birth. It's a 12 week course and there are two other couples in our class. All of us are expecting girls. My instructor had 5 kids drug-free, all of them weighing over 10 lbs at birth! Her first was 12 lbs!!! So I figure the Bradley method does work, and hopefully it works for us. The first class we talked about nutrition and excercises. I have to write down everything I eat on a worksheet. Hahaha, so less oreos and hot cheetos for me! ;) We also watched a video of a live birth. I wont lie, it shocked me and Daniel a little. We had never seen one before. I couldn't decide what shocked me more...the miracle of childbirth or the fact that the lady in the video didn't mind the camera all up in her business (or the fact that classes would be watching!!!) We had fun in our first class and I am looking forward to the next one.
