Andrew and I are practicing hypnobirthing techniques on our own this time around. (We practice on Friday nights because that is the sort of action-packed life we lead.) Since we took a class last time, "practicing" consists of Andrew reading me scripts while I get very comfortable and focus on relaxing. And even though this is not exactly a hardship on either of us, we both regard it as a bit of a chore when all we really want to do is veg out in front of the TV.
Which is why, last Friday, Andrew moaned and groaned and said to me, "At least you have the EASY part."
He kind of wishes he hadn't said that.
