<p>How is it going? Are the exercises and lessons sticking/working?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Mine is going so-so. I am finding it hard to find the quiet time to do the practice that isn't at night right before bed. I usually just fall asleep.</p>

<p><span style="font-size:14px;">Well, I know it works because I have used it when I was not only in discomfort but what I would call pain and viola!  It worked!  No more discomfort or pain.  </span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span style="font-size:8px;">                                      but I haven't practiced since the end of October...</span></p>
<p> </p>

<p><span style="font-size:14px;">We'll get back on the bandwagon probably mid-December as I want 8 good weeks of practicing pre-birth...it is a little crazy to find 45-60 minutes in my schedule to walk or exercise plus 30-45 minutes to hypnotize plus the hours it takes to shop for and make healthy pregnancy food...it is like my life could revolve around gestating.  I just don't have time for it right now!</span>  <img alt="bouncy.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/bouncy.gif"></p>

<p>We're actually going to do the class with an instructor.  It starts on December 5.  I'm so worried that I'll develop pre-e and it'll be a waste of $150, though ... at least we could re-sell our home study kit!  Maybe she'll pro-rate for the classes that I didn't get to take if my baby ends up needing to be early.</p>

<p>I have the home study kit.  I've done the first CD, which is pretty much the same as the Hypnobirthing, but with a less annoying narrator.  :)  I have done about halfway through the second CD multiple times, because as a PP stated, I rarely find time to do this that isn't right before bedtime.</p>

<p>I am starting the actual lessons at 32 weeks since I only need a refresher (did hypnobabies last time around). I have started the affirmations though and I try and exercise 30 min everyday from the beginning of this pregnancy. I have everything on my Ipod ready to go. I put t hem in separate playlists so that they just end and don't go on to the next track.</p>

<p>I've been trying to do two tracks a day. I uploaded them all on to my computer and burned cd's for each week. Anyone else find it kinda annoying the cd's aren't by week but kinda random...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I 'fall asleep' but consistently I 'wake' up just when the session ends, though a few times I haven't. So I think its hypnosis, plus one time I was a little more aware and the special place session was really cool imagery that I was able to recall this weekend when I took a bath and had to relax myself to stop contractions (stress induced)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm just finishing week 1 but did the Relax me, for the week leading up to when I finally got the actual packet.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Question for you all, are you going to resell yours right away or keep it for the next birth? Or do you think for the next birth you won't really need the workbook?</p>

<p>i did week one a long while back, then i kept doing the daily affirmations... i'm just 27 weeks yesterday, so it was my plan to start again at 28 weeks. thus, next monday i'll go to week 2 and continue on from there. i know i might get a little behind in december as i have lots of family, traveling for my sister's wedding and moving...but will have a settled down jan and feb (plus i'm not due until the very end of feb) i have been mostly listening to it before falling asleep, so i get more or less of it depending on how long it takes me to truly relax/fall asleep. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>i do find it a little annoying how they arranged it. i've downloaded it to my ipod, but should probably organize it better there! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>i don't know if i'll be selling it or keeping it. i know my sister wants to be pregnant soon, so maybe i'll keep it and just loan it out to moms interested if i think it was worth it and want to use it next time around. we'll see if i find it helpful! i definitely love the affirmations.</p>

<p>I kept mine- I have used some sections of the workbook so far this time around again. I have also loaned it out to 4 moms now, so it is helping many others have a natural birth :)</p>
