Conversation with Baby Daddy

Like any expecting mom, I’ve been looking at the childbirth and pregnancy-related classes offered at the hospital where I will give birth to Baby K. There is an extensive list of options so I recently asked Husband if he was interested in taking one (or a few) with me. This is the conversation that ensued between us:

Me: Do you want to go to any childbirth classes at the hospital?

Husband: (cutting his eyes at me) Why? What kind of topics do they cover? How much is it?

The one-time class is on a Saturday and it lasts all day, but it covers a lot of stuff.

Such as?

“Anatomy and physiology of the baby and birth process.”

Pee-pee or no pee-pee, I don’t need a class for this.

“Relaxation techniques.”

You won’t be relaxed. That’s not in your vocabulary.

“Role of labor support person.”

Who’s that? (long pause) Oh, is that me?! (laughing)

“Physical and emotional postpartum care.”

Peanut’s gonnaΒ suck your boob, sleep, and fill diapers.

I don’t like you right now.

That’s because you love me. (smile)

What about a tour of the hospital and maternity ward?

I know where the hospital is, we drive by it going to the doctor’s office. I’ll find the maternity ward eventually. Where’s the cafeteria? I might get hungry waiting on you.

This conversation is over. I’m done.

It’s so easy to drive you nuts.

    Are you sure we didn’t marry the same man? Or at least brothers? HAHA! Todd was this way all the way until I was IN labor. No lie. πŸ™‚

    Hi Nicole,
    Been following your blog for a while now. I live in South Africa and a year ago, put together an online antenatal course especially for this reason – so many spouses find it awkward despite really needing to be educated before baba arrives.
    I have had a few American couples do my course – you might want to check it out http://www.justengage.co.za but there is a great Canadian course called Welcome to Parenting that offer great online courses too.
    It might be a solution for him even if you decided to ge to extra live classes at the hospital yourself.

      Thanks!!!! Husband doesn’t think he’s being funny (which he’s not, he was 100% serious during this conversation) which makes it even funnier to me. I tried to keep a straight face through this, but failed miserably! =)

    Oh, geez!! πŸ™‚ I’m with him on the tour thing, though. With my last, we had never driven to the hospital or even driven by it until it was the middle of the night and I was in labor. πŸ˜‰ I’m glad we found it okay because by the time we got there, I was 8 cm. lol

      Oh my word, Jenn!!! Glad you made it to the hospital in time, but that’s cutting it real close. =)

    So I’ll wait to read about what he thought of the class he’s obviously taking with you. πŸ™‚

      LOL I “threatened” to sign him up for DADDY BOOT CAMP but he really disliked that idea too. HAHAHAHA He is a mess. One of a kind, but definitely a mess.
