Lamaze update: Last night Josh and I went to our second Lamaze class and I actually made it through without laughing at an inappropriate time. Perhaps it was because I was scared to death! We watched videos on labor and delivery which really made it look like this is gonna be hard work. There was one point I looked at Josh and said, "Do you really think I can do this?" He said, "I'm not worried about you I think I might be passed out on the floor!" In one of the videos the woman actually watched her labor in a mirror...NO THANK YOU!
Did you watch or want to watch your labor?
Pregnancy nosebleeds: Today I had another one of these pregnancy nosebleeds. They're not gushers or anything just when I blow my nose it's bloody. My sister was surprised when I said pregnancy nosebleeds because she had never had one when she was pregnant with her son and had no idea that they were common. So I found this article on babycenter.com that said nosebleeds during pregnancy are common because of increased blood supply putting more pressure on those delicate vessels causing them to rupture. It's more likely to happen if your sinuses dry out and since I have a problem with dry sinuses during allergy season because of the medication I take I have saline that I can snort to ease that a little. So I think when I get home today I'll bathe my sinuses and hope that helps. It sucks getting nosebleeds at work.
Did you have nosebleeds while you were pregnant?
