I am convinced at some point before a baby is born every dad has a little bit of a breakdown. At least that is what I try to tell myself to seem normal. A few weeks ago the baby momma and I were sitting around and it hit me. There is a human in my wife’s stomach.
Yes I understand how the whole pregnancy thing works, thanks for asking. But the actual realization that my wife has an actual human in her stomach freaks me out a bit. She eats, sleeps, moves, poops and all sorts of stuff. She is probably even listening in on our conversations. This blog is the only thing left that is safe since I have been assured she does not have an internet connected device up in there. I am still a bit skeptical though.
Previously there was a disconnect between the baby and the belly. The baby was this thing we saw occasionally on a TV at the doctor’s office. It looked like a little bean. Now it is growing and starting to take up room on my half of the bed at night. The dog has even retreated to the foot of the bed due to the growing scarcity of real estate around the middle where he typically slept.
The other night around 4 in the morning Brandie woke me up and put my hand on her belly. It Moved! I felt Ava kick (or punch) and then move her whole body around. There is absolutely no denying something is going on in there. The baby has become very real, and now I am starting to freak out a bit.
