My mother’s weight gain for all the trimesters was 23 lbs. total. My parents took the LaMouse class as the birthing preparation class. The food cravings were spicy Mexican foods, pancakes, sausages, tomato soup and orange juice at the middle of the night. My mother stopped working and stayed home when regnant with me, and then went back to work five months later after my birth. The exercise level was good and neutral. The sleeping habits were also good. My mother saw me when I was going by her room and said softly “Christopher”. Both of my parents wanted to be surprise and did not want to know the sex or gender of the baby. The father’s life was worried about the financial costs of the birth.
