Pregnant life

Not to gripe, but man it's hard living with a Preggo.  Between the feeding schedule and the overall tiredness they are experiencing, is damn hard to see them suffering from the baby growing and not being able to do anything about it.  You can rub their feet and keep them fed, you can try to help do chores and rub their feet some more but you cannot make their body stop feeling sore.  You cannot make the baby stop waking them up in the middle of the night, and you cannot talk them down from whatever crazy they have worked up in their head.  In a lot of ways it is just like living with a woman on a normal day, but with the crazy dial turned up to 11.

This time around several of our friends are also going to be having children in the same time frame as us, one just delivered a baby girl on the 4th of July, and two others are due a few weeks after us.  We are excited that our kids will have people that we know with kids the same age that live nearby, and I am generally excited about the parent thing, but mostly I'm about ready for the pregnancy thing to be done.

Its good that you are trying your best to help her any way you can, and before long it will be the baby who demands all your attention. I hope everything goes well, and keep us posted!!!

  7. Having been the preggo, I'm glad to read that rub the feet made your list twice. Well done you.

  8. I bet good money that when I am pregnant I will still have my husband's feet showing up in whatever disappearing lap I have. That is the unfortunate nature in my house.
