Childbirth Class #2 - Boy It's Been a While

Yesterday Jim and I went to a childbirth class at the hospital where son #2 will be born. I had a little concern because we had taken a similar class when we were pregnant the first time. I was amazed at what new things they have included in the class. This time we got to see a lot of the equipment they use to do the various things to check on you. We had the routine tour of the maternity floor, nursery, etc.

The neatest thing about the class and something new from 5 1/2 years ago when we had delivered there before was the additions to their security system. This is so cool. When Jake was born we had the bracelet thing...I had one, he had one and Jim had one. But now they do that a step further...they now put these electronic bracelets on the babies. It looks as though they are under house arrest, but it does something really cool. If someone gets too close to the door with a baby, the doors lock and the alarm goes off. This way no baby can leave the ward. about peace of mind.

I'm getting more and more excited about the baby. Now if we can just decide on a name.
