<p>The course says it's five weeks but to order it a few months before you're due to really master the concepts. I'll be 35 weeks on this friday. I went ahead and ordered it this morning. It should arrive thursday. Can anyone tell me if I can get a lot out of the program with only five or six weeks to go?</p>

<p>I would say yes, if you have the time to listen to the tracks every night. You can join the hypnobabies yahoo group, and ask there, I am sure they will say it's a good idea.</p>

<p>It is a lot more work on your part to rush it, but I can tell you it is TOTALLY worth it.  Hypnobabies made all the difference in the world in my last delivery, and I am hoping it will help me have an easy birth this time too.</p>

I'm 33 weeks with twins so may come early and on the end of week 2, so I'm cutting it close. But my instructor did confirm that as long as you have the 5 weeks it's ok, but not to rush it faster than that. So dive on in. Make sure you really stay on top of the daily things, it is not something that you can just do a fees hours a week and expect great things from, commit to your wonderful birth!!!

<p>I'm currently doing Hypnobabies. I'd recommend not doing it in bed: I keep falling asleep. The program says it's okay but I'm on the track that teaches you the finger drop technique and I've yet to learn it despite listening 3 or 4 times. <span><img alt="redface.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;"></span></p>

<p>I slept through 90% of every track in my last pregnancy... still worked like a charm.  :)</p>

<br><br><p> Oh yeah? Did you practice the finger drop technique during the day? I did try practicing last night but was unsure if I was really entering hypnosis...</p>

Not really, pretty much every track starts you with the finger drop.... so drop my finger, close my eyes (or is it eyes, then finger?) and visualize a light switch moving into the off position with a click... by the time she starts saying "deeper, deeper" I am saying ZzzzZZzzzzzz.  ;)  I am a bad student this time, I am not reading the materials at all, just listening to my tracks.  Last time I read it all, did the tracks, but didn't practice during the day more than maybe once a week.  I didn't listen to my tracks at ALL in labor, and I still had a VERY comfortable, relaxing birth.  No panic at all, ever, I stayed so calm.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I did use my peace and relax cues... but I never have really felt "different", or can tell when I am entering hypnosis, but I do notice that I can't open my eyes.  I also can ease things like heartburn, or cramps when I finger drop, so it has to work, right?</p>

<p>Even if you sleep through the CDs, I would recommend sticking with the program's suggestion to practice the finger drop on its own, several times a day.  It's an important skill.  You don't have to be listening to a script to practice - the instructions are in your home study materials.</p>

<p>SumnerRain - wow, sounds like you had a GREAT birth!</p>
