We had our last Antenatal (Prenatal) class yesterday :( It's been fun to have these classes, and I look forward to it each week. Some of the information was really helpful... but there was definitely some that wasn't. We had two different classes where they were supposed to spend some time doing "relaxation exercises"... here that translates: "meditation". It was actually quite humorous at times. One lady played a funny tape (yes, I'm talking about an audio cassette) of music that was supposed to be relaxing. It was some mystical sounding music with a funny man's voice saying: "OM" over and over. While that was happening, the teacher said to imagine yourself on an island... on the island you find a temple, at that temple is an altar, you bow to the altar and realize that the alter is you.... WHAT???? haha! I have no clue how that is supposed to help people during labor... haha oh well... I was definitely entertained. Meditation is a big part of the religion here... but it was interesting to see that most people in our class thought it was a pretty silly way to relieve labor pain... some people even fell asleep.These are some of the fun girls in our class (a couple of girls weren't there this week). I was really wanting to build a lasting relati0nship with some of these girls - but with such a big class, it's been hard. I have become pretty good friends with Kool (she's the girl that's in between me and Emily in these pics)... so I'm "hoping" that will continue :) Adam and I got an idea to take a picture of the class at the end today and offer to email the pics to everyone in class :) Now we have every one's email addresses! Fun hunh? I love my camera :) haha!
