Morning 265 of me not sleeping. She just told me
that she looked up what hemorrhoids look like. – And it was terrifying.
– ( chuckles ) Sometimes it happens
after the labor, when you push. Shay: Like, remember when I
thought that I was big before? It’s crazy
how big you are. They can happen in labor
if you don’t feel anything. You’re not the one
giving birth, okay? Shay:
Calibrating what? Shay:
My weight. I’m holding the phone,
though, Matte. Like, this is adding
extra weight. Matte: The phone doesn’t even
weight half a pound. Shay: Okay, well, 168.8. I’m just saying that some
of the things you’re scared of can be eliminated
or potentially eliminated. Giving birth
without an epidural or a couple hemorrhoids– I’m gonna take
the hemorrhoids. Why, honey?
You can–I know– – The thing is you work out.
– Matte. – No pain, no gain.
– It’s not you. – Yes, I feel great.
– You feel good. You know why? ‘Cause I have my cocoa butter
and I put it everywhere. You think
you can’t sleep right now because I use you as a
human pillow? What about when it’s like…
( imitates baby wailing ) That’s fine.
That’s fine.– ( Shay imitates baby wailing )
– Matte: That’s fine.( birds chirping )Shay:
I’m so hungry.We have to leave soon because
I do not want to be latefor that baby basics class.Matte, there are
so many more noodles in there. – You make it the best, though.
– No, I don’t. If you didn’t make it the best,
I’d make my own.– Shay: You’re such a liar.
– Matte: You do.The way you make it
is, like, incredible. I honestly realized something.The reason why
I love spicy stuff so muchisn’t even because I like
the spice so much. It’s if I make it spicy enough,
then no one else can eat it. Okay, can I have some now? ( laughing )
Oh, my God, honey. – Can I have some?
– You could also make yours. I can’t wait till we’re
in class today and they talk
about partnership. Okay, I’ll talk
about partnership all day long. I’ll talk about how I make
enough noodles for both of us so you just have to get them
out of the fridge. Speaking of which,
what is this class? Do you know anything
about it? ( sighs ) I think
there’s diaper changing… which we both could use
a lesson in. It can’t be rocket science. Matte… technology updates itself
all the time. You have to keep getting
refresher courses. We’re talking
about diapers.I’m 8 weeks out, Matte.I don’t want to ever say this,
but I’m gonna say this. You never know when
you could go to the hospital… truly, so I’d rather be
prepared a little bit, since we have nothing else
that’s prepared. – ( crunches )
– Matte: Okay.( grunting ) God.Shay:
It’s so hot.What would I do
without air conditioning? – I don’t know.
– Oh, this feels so good.( hip-hop music )( Shay groans ) That is getting harder
and harder.– Shay: How’s it going?
– Debora: Hi, I’m Debora.Hi. Matte.
Nice to meet you. Nice to meet you.
Yes, you guys ready? These are the exercises I’m
supposed to be doing right now.Matte: I keep trying
to tell you that, yeah.– ( laughing ) Yeah.
– You don’t tell me anything. You got to loosen up
your hips, too? My balance is fantastic,
actually. – ( laughs ) – Try putting 30 pounds
on your stomach. It kind of throws
the balance off. Oh, oh, oh, oh.Debora:
Please watch out. ( laughs )I can do it.
( groans mockingly ) It’s like he’s
so competitive. He just picked up this baby and said, “This is the size
it comes out.” No, this is obviously
a little bit bigger than what’s coming out,
am I right? Yes, a little bit bigger.
We’re gonna talk about that. We’re gonna talk about how baby
looks when they come out.Debora:
But if you have a long baby–that’s, like,
I would say 20 inches.Some babies are born
at 20 inches. – ( laughs )
– Matte: Yeah.So let me show you
some real birthday pictures. That’s sometimes
how the babies look likewhen they are just born.You might see that your baby
has swollen eyes, flat nose.Some babies are born
with this lanugo, – which is extra hair…
– Oh, my God.Debora:
But that goes away, too. – It does?
– Debora: Okay? It does.You just do a little wax
in the hospital room? There’s, like, a waxer
that comes around. ( laughs )
I love that. This is what I looked like. Look at that. I looked
like an old Asian man. – Yeah.
– Like Benjamin Button. ( laughs )
Very cute. Not that cute.Debora: So babies are also born
with some reflexes.So, if you expose your baby
to a very loud noise, something falls on the floor,
the baby will just like, whoo! – Shay: Mm.
– They do that. They wake themself up. That’s why we swaddle them,
’cause then we turn that off.Debora: Okay?
Let’s do the swaddle now.Why don’t you try it first? – Or I can do it first.
– Shay: No, no, no. Just let him mess up first, because he knows
how to do this, which is why he didn’t think
we needed to come here. Matte:
You’re wrap this up, okay? ‘Cause you got to get her feet. This is gonna
come across, okay? And then her feet are secure,
her arm is secure. Great. This has to be tucked in
some more. I was gonna tuck this in
right there. There you go.
Like that. Okay, are you done now,
before we step in? Mm.
No, I’m all right. – Shay: Okay. That’s wrong.
– Debora: You’re good? Matte:
I’m all right now. Okay.
So let me just revise this. This could work, okay?
This could work. Hold on, hold on,
hold on, hold on. Hold on.
Hold on. Let me see you go. And now, I don’t want to see
you use my technique either. Shay: I like to do it my way,
which is a different step. I don’t put the arm down
right away.( quirky music )Oh, my God, you’re putting
your forearm– What, are you arresting her? – ( light laughter )
– Uh-oh. – Maybe I don’t do that.
– Wow. But, like, you tuck it in. You can see who wraps
all the presents in the house. ( laughter )Debora: What do you know
about breastfeeding?What is that good for
that you know?That it really hurts. It is kind of normal
to have sore nipplesin the beginning–
to hurt a little bit.But you have to see things
getting better.Do you have a nipple cover,
like, a protector?– Debora: Yeah.
– Do you sell those here? – We have some.
– And do they work? They do work. I wish I could have this, so I could be like,
“Here you go–somebody else’s.” Shay: What is this thing about
pumping and dumping if I drink? So what we recommend
for mom’s to haveis one glass of wine.But there are on the market
little sticksthat you stick it in the milk, and then you can test it
to see if that’s good or not. – You should get some of those.
– Debora: Okay?But it takes three hours
per glass of wine to get out of your system. Kind of, yes. – Matte: Wow.
– Yes. Is there a service to buy other
women’s, like, breast milk?Debora:
I mean…– there is black market…
– What? Debora:
That I don’t really recommend. Matte: No way.
You have to be kidding. – I’m not.Debora:
So let’s go aroundthe store now and then see
if you need anything. – Shay: What’s this?
– Debora: Yes. This is the first time that I’ve actually been
in a baby store, like, for myself.Shay: I can’t really
compartmentalizethe idea of having a babyand, like, put it on
the back burner, becauseit’s becoming more and more
real to me every single day,every single week.Now I’m having to face it.That one is a newborn size. Where does it say that?Shay: And I am terrified
of giving birth.( exhales deeply ) There’s a lot of stuff in here.Debora: So this is something
that you put on your nipple.Yeah, then it doesn’t hurt me. No, not as much. Matte: Where’s the milk tester
for acidity? Trust me, we’re gonna be using
that thing a lot. Yeah, I will get that. Yes.Shay:
Did you enjoy the class?Yeah. I had a little who’s,
like, 16 years younger than me. – Debora: Okay.
– Yeah, so I was around a baby. – So babies don’t frighten you?
– Not really. And I have friends who, like,
have no business having kids who were able
to get through it, and I feel like
if they can get through it, I can get through it.– Shay: Thank you, guys.
– Debora: No problem– It was nice to meet you.
– Matte: Thanks so much. – Thanks for everything, yeah.
– Debora: Yes. Yes, it was great. I’ll be back
for more nipple pads.Debora:
( laughs ) Yes.– Bye-bye.
– Matte: Thanks.Shay:
Well, that was fun.To me, I don’t know.
It just seems all so obvious.Honestly, I wonder–
I’m like, “Yo… “how long have people been
having babies? All those babies
are all right.”Of course.And without breastfeeding,
they’re all right.– No.
– Oh, really? If you can’t breastfeed, I completely understand
the idea– Some women don’t want to. Okay, well, I’m against that.And I’m sure there’s a lot of
women who are against it, too.I just think if you have
the innate ability to breastfeed
and the kid latches, why wouldn’t you want the best
for your baby? ‘Cause–
Anyways…– ‘Cause what?
– Nothing. No, be honest. Why? Because formulas
are good, too.No, they’re not.The physical connection,the things you get from
breast milk, it’s just, like– If you can do it. If you can’t
do it, of course, that’s rough. I get it. ( sighs ) What else did you learn?( soft music )( exhales deeply )
I learned I got to watch you – when you swaddle the child.
– ( chuckles )( music continues )( cell phone chimes )
Hey, how’s it going? ( sighs ) I just came
from a Baby 101 class. Oh, how was that? Well, breastfeeding
with the whole epidural combo– I’m just, like–I don’t know
what I want to do yet. All I know
is that I just need Matte to “silencio” and give me
a little bit of space so I can figure that out. Unfortunately,
that’s the road you go down when they just don’t get it,
so you do what’s best for you. Yeah. I just need
to figure out a way to get Matte to understand
a little bit more about how this actually feels
and the struggle that it is. But that’s the thing–like,
he’ll probably never get it. Right.( mellow music )What are you doing? Nothing.
What’s up? Okay, so I’ve been thinking
a lot about his birth plan. Yeah? And I feel like… We need to be more
on the same page with this. What do you mean
“more on the same page”? You say no epidural.
I say epidural. Am I partial to no epidural?
Yes. Why? Because I’m
a hypochondriac, I’m afraid of drugs. My mom didn’t use an epidural.
Lizzy didn’t. I meet women all the time who
didn’t choose to use epidural. Would you get a root canal
without any drugs? – You love that analogy.
– But it’s true.It’s like you’re
in excruciating pain, and I’m holding the medicine
like this, and I’m like, “You could have it,
and it wouldn’t do any harm, “but you don’t want it. Do you want to be a fighter?
Fight through it.” A root canal is not comparable Because you’re not born to go
through a root canal. As a woman, your body
is genetically engineered to give birth. Well, listen, next time,
you can do this. I would love to, honey.
I already said that. – Oh, you would love to?
– I would love to do it. You’d love to know
what it’s like? The miracle of birth, honey. Would you love to know
what it’s like? Yeah. – Today’s your lucky day?
– Why? Because… recently I’ve been putting
together a little magic bag
of some items that I would like you
to try out. You’re gonna wear this. – No, I’m not.
– This is a 30-pound weight. It’s exactly what
I’m carrying around. You’re gonna come with me
on this hike, and you are gonna wear this. Before we put that on, though, we’re gonna put on
these little guys, and this is gonna go
on your bear stomach. What is that? Don’t worry about it. It’s gonna give you the same
feelings that I get of getting kicked in your ribs
over and over again… – No way.
– While wearing this. Look how excited you are
about this. Yes, ’cause I want us to go
for a nice, romantic stroll and us both feel
the same thing. You think I’m wearing this
out in public? You are wearing it. I’m not wearing that
out in public. No one has to see this. You’re gonna wear
a sweatshirt over it. So you just want me to look
like a fat guy? Yes.( funky music )– You have an app.
– Of course I do. ( laughs ) Matte:
Let me see it. Let me see it. – Let me see it.
– Are you serious? No, no, no, no,
let me see this ting. – You know how to work this?
– Yes. Now, let’s put this on. – This is crazy.
– Yeah, well, so is this. This is crazy. This should be meant for every
guy that’s going through this. ( music continues ) Okay. This is crazy. Let’s see.
( imitates horn honk, laughs ) Your tits look
better than mine. How’s that even possible?Matte:
You’re crazy.( birds chirping ) Shay: ( singing )
You got to move it, move it Is that tough
getting out of the door? This is definitely not
how you feel. I almost forgot about angel. Come on.
Good girl. ( car door closes ) Should I just put my hands
like this? ( laughs ) Matte: Some women gain
70 pounds, don’t they? That’s true. You could’ve got me
a 70-pound. Then you would’ve complained
that we really weren’t equal because now I got you one that
was way more than what I was. This is not equal.
You put boobs on me. I’m not putting
a penis on you. ( laughs ) This is def–
Ow! Enough. Honestly, less talking,
more walking. – Come on.
– Listen– It just kicked.
It just kicked me, too. I want you to feel the exact same sensation
that I’m feeling. What are you doing? I felt it.
This was great. No, no, no, no, no.
We’re not done yet. We have way more hike to do.
Come on. ( clicks tongue ) Come on.( laughing )Keep it moving.( funky music playing ) Question– what do you think
about changing the floors in the house? I don’t think about that. We’re about to have a baby
in two months, and now you want to redecorate
the whole house? – Your mama’s losing it.
– Losing it? Mm-hmm. Ow! I’m not losing it. It’s called nesting,
so they say.
