I am glad you are feeling well! Take the classes, but don't let them stress you out. They gave me all kinds of anxiety and everything was fine (regarding labor)--even things that I was really worried about! Matt and I would cover our ears and bury our heads for every video. Ha! What doctor are you seeing?
