Empathy Belly




So we decided to take a birthing class, being this is our "first" pregnancy. What an adventure!!! More poor husband.... Yeah right, I don't feel sorry for him AT ALL!!!! After what I have been through the last 8 months those 10 hours were NOTHING!!! He got to see a few births (birds eye few) and see exactly what it means to be 10 cm dilated. My favorite part was him wearing the empathy belly while we were learning birthing positions and how to "comfort" Mom during those awful contractions. I had NO sympathy for him as he had on his 35 lb belly, I made him cater to me regardless if it hurt him at all!! It was pure HEAVEN. Here are a few fun pictures of that lovely day!!!

What a cool class. I wish that they had offered that with my first. Cameron needed a sympathy belly! You look so Cala. You belly is really cute. Not much longer!

I think it should be a law that the father of the child in the womb has to wear a sympathy belly for the last 5 months of the pregnancy. Man would'nt that be sweet justice? Dan, you're a hot pregnant woman. Cala, really could you get any stinkin' cuter?

Those pictures are so classic! Matt attended a few of my classes with Alexis, but they never talked about the empathy belly. I'm glad that he was able to attend the meetings with you. I am still in awe seeing you pregnant! You look great and am so happy that you are pregnant!

I love that they do that for the dads, I'm with Kim, I think they should have to wear it for at least 3 months! Cala, you look so cute, Dan, not so much! :)

isn't that fun. we had fun with it too - i was hoping for some sort of remote to control the tightness, cramps, lack of bladder room, 24/7 barfing and lack of sleep. but i guess no one has thought of that. it was sure funny though. :> you look adorable! can you believe it - you are nearly a mother of 2! yay...

Isn't the belly the best! That is great that he would wear it. I had to pull Shane's arm to get him to put it on. Dan looks spretty good pregnant!
