Just wanted some advice. My hospital offers a one day "Miracle of Birth" class. We have the option to go at 30 weeks or 35 weeks. Do you think 35 weeks is too late? Problem is 30 weeks is part of summer and they are only held on Saturdays, all day. What do you think? When did you do your classes?
Thanks in advance for any advice.

We did the two Saturdays class because be husband travels so we couldn't be sure he'd be around for 7 Wednesday nights (or whatever the other option was). I liked it because we got all the information at once rather than dragging it all out. I did find it was kind of hard, especially the second week, because I was really uncomfortable that day and I was having trouble sitting for that long (we were allowed to get up and walk around and do whatever to be comfortable, and we did some stuff where we got up and moved around, but all I really wanted to do was lay in bed with my Snoogle pillow). I'd say take whichever one fits your schedule better. I was glad to do it earlier because I was a bit afraid of suddenly being put on bedrest or something unexpected and not end up being able to take them at all, but that's me
Me - 33, Him - 38
See About Me for full history.
Long story short: Trying without success for four years, two m/cs, several medicated cycles including two IUIs, and too many BFNs to count.
Dec 2010 Surprise natural BFP!
All betas and ultrasounds look great.
March 25 - 18 week u/s. Everything looks perfect. It's a boy!
Calvin Robert arrived on Sunday, August 21, 2011. I can't believe he's ours! So grateful.
We would like a second but it will have to happen naturally. Period returned July 2012.
Nov 2013 - BFP, but faint and bleeding a few days later. Beta 23 and then down to non-pregnant levels. Things are back to "normal", apparently.
