Hi Liefie
Yes we attended anti-natal classes with our first baby and I would say it is a must. Especially for your husband. Don't know about yours but mine didn't do a lot of reading before hand so the classes opened his eyes and really prepared him for the birth.

It is also very exciting to share some experiences and stories with the other moms and you just feels so much more prepared.

Usually there are also classes at the hospital that you are planning to give birth at and this also helps to make the environment so much more familiar and less scary.

Hope you find a nice on to go to!!

Hi Hantielab

I totally agree with you re husband and is one of my main reasons to wanting to attend. You are correct mine is also not the reading up allot type lol :laugh:

Found nice lady that mailed me allot of info on breastfeeding (she is a lactation consultant) and she does anti natal classes too.

thanks so much for your advice :)

last question at what stage do you start attending classes? Friday I will be 20 weeks.

Hi liefie, I actually just phoned to book in for classes with a lady at kingsbury yesterday, she said I must start on the 13th of October only (I am exactly 18 weeks) I hope that gives you some sort of idea of timing. I do recommend that you phone your hospital and get the number of the lady who will do your classes now to book, as they fill up quickly!

Hello All!

hope you had a great weekend!

So I have booked my classes for mid October I will then be 31 weeks.
thank you for all the help and suggestions.

any new news ons your side - I just started new symptom.....
heartburn... not very nice. Any of you have it? It all depends on what I eat
and how much of course.

Did some maternity shopping over the weekend, such a shame that Woolworths don't do Maternity clothes anymore. The other dedicated maternity shops are just too exensive! R500 for a plain jeans... Sjoe! Luckily I found some stuff at Mr P
not allot to choose from but more in my price range.

Hello everyone!

I don't post here often, but it looks like my baby will be arriving in december (rather than january as originally predicted)

I'm about 17 and a half weeks now, getting bigger by the day. How's everyone else doing in the bump department? Liefie, I also was very sad to see woolies doesn't do maternity anymore, but if you're in Cape Town, there's a shop in Canal walk called Cherry Melon, that has awesome maternity pants, and it's surprisingly affordable. But for tops I am loving the new "very loose" trend going around, perfect for the preggy belly! Every second top at Cotton On is super wide now, and it actually looks really nice even when you aren't preggo, so double whammy there.

Where are you guys doing prenatal classes? I've heard you can apparently do them at the hospital you're giving birth at? (haven't booked mine yet)

Hi all!
I agree, maternity clothing is ridiculous!! Luckily I still have stuff from my first pregnancy and I got a whole bunch of stuff from my sister, only problem is, it is all summer clothing!! So I'm praying for a early summer since I'm not going to buy all those expensive winters clothes!!
I found that the big Mr Price shops has quite a lot of affordable clothes for normal day to day wear.
Good luck with the shopping all!!

Luckily my nausea has finally stopped and I'm also getting some energy back. Also getting quite big now (since there are 2 in there) and already gained 7 kg aaahhhhhh!!!!

Want to start getting the nursery ready and do the big shopping before I get to uncomfortable!!!

Hope you all have a great week!!
