30 minutes or it's free. . .

We had a doctor's appointment on Monday. As we sat waiting in the exam room there was a knock on the door and the doctor poked her head in and said "I have to go deliver this baby, I'll be right back." Right back!? . . . yes, she was right back. Less than 30 minutes later. granted her office is about a 5 minute walk to the delivery room, but still. She's like Dominoes.

I take back a little of what I said last time about the L&D classes. This second class was much, much better than the first. We went through signs of labor and how the labor itself should go. . . kind of a read through. The teacher actually had some helpful information and I felt she was answering our questions well.

I found a cool podcast, "The Ford Galaxy of Stories." It features "famous names from the worlds of [British] film, TV and comedy tell(ing) memorable children’s stories and bring(ing) them to life in their own unique way. Parents can download new stories each week to keep the family entertained at home or in the car" My wife and I watch our fair share of BBC America so we recognized quite a few of the narrators. It's really good, and I swear Ford is not paying me to say that.

Oh and you can subscribe to it through itunes for easy distribution.

Well, I am glad to hear that the second class went better. I was getting a little concerned that I might be waisting a whole Saturday for nothing when I have to go to mine. Thanks for the update. I am glad that everything is going well.

Must be nice. The past two times Chris came with me, we had to wait 45 minutes in a tiny, hot exam room. I was pissed.

Glad you enjoyed the second class better. We had ours last weekend and it was pretty good.

Oh we still had to wait a long time. We had waited in the waiting room for 45 minutes and then another 15 before she poked her head in. The the 25 minutes while she was delivering the baby.

All our appointments are like that.
