I'm still here! Life has been keeping me very busy, but my blog and my dreams are never far from my thoughts. I'm still reading The Baby Book almost daily, even if it's just a few pages at a time. It will take me awhile longer to get through it but that's ok. I figure as long as I keep reading it and don't let it go more than a day or two, I'm in good shape.
I have got my ICAN of Simcoe County membership up and running, at least I think I have. They have received my payment though I haven't gotten a confirmation back from them yet, which I have enquired about today. There was supposed to be an online support meeting last night but it got postponed.
But on a related note, ICAN is hosting a Parenting and Pregnancy Expo in Barrie next month. More information can be found here - Pregnancy and Parenting Expo 2011. I definitely plan on attending. They will be showing two movies, Labouring Under An Illusion and Babies, both which look very interesting and you can see trailers for on the ICAN website. I'm excited to check it out, and you should too!
Otherwise not much new is going on. I have been thinking about my training and originally I thought I wanted to complete 4 of the Childbirth International courses, but I am now thinking of doing just two - birth doula and breastfeeding counsellor. I figured those are the two which are most important to me right now, and I can always add on at a later time. Scaling down to two makes my goals more achievable I think, as I will only have to save up half the money now to get started.
Still no immediate plans to register, but that could change at any time. You never know!
