Graduation

We officially graduated from baby class tonight. Got our certificate and everything. Guess that means we're officially approved to bring Tot home when the time comes.

We got a tour of the new hospital facilities tonight as well. The bathrooms on the postpartum floor are awesome. Seriously. I should have taken pictures. I'd seen the rooms and the nursery and everything when BFF Jen was there back in February, but I never went in the bathroom. It's bigger than both the bathrooms in my house combined. And they have hair dryers and robes and slippers and everything in there. The nurse said we got to take the slippers home, even. Dude.

The rooms also have small fridges and its the only floor in the hospital where you can custom order your meal trays. They even have a photographer contracted to come in and do newborn pics while you're in the hospital. Ok, I find that a little over the top. I mean, it's neat and all, but don't you have enough people coming in and out of your room at all hours of the day and night at that point?

Anyway, the facilities are really nice. All of the nurses I met during the classes were super nice. I feel pretty good about the whole thing. Now we just... wait.

They didn't mention a heat lamp for the mamas, just the babies. But they did make a point to tell us to bring warm socks because my feet would likely get COLD during labor. Wonder if the doc would appreciate my happy striped toe socks with the smilee faces on top...

A good labor nurse is worth her weight in GOLD. I will pray now that you get the most awesomest one they have.

Can't wait to see the first pics of Tot! I'm getting so excited!

my doctor always laughed at my funny socks during my prenatal visits. i wore them on purpose.

the heat lamp is fo yo coo-coo cat. kind of like sunbathing for your crotch! (it expedites the healing process)...i know, i know. it sounds gross, but it works!!!!

I'm all about expediting the healing process! No idea if they have the heat lamps, though. I'll have to ask!
