No, I am not referring to myself.
midnight snacks, strange craving, unexplained rage fits and sudden crying, yup you guessed it.
I’m pregnant !…. Or she is at least. On the 19th last week we found out the we are going to be a father. We were at school hoping our angel wasn’t dying or anything, her breasts had been hurting, she’d had unexplained pains and discomfort for at least a few weeks. So she sent us this…
We just froze. Closed our laptop and walked out, calm as the eye of a hurricane. When we got out of the building, we finally realized just how much we needed fresh air. I’M GOING TO BE A DAD!!! was all that went through our heads, we nearly cried, it was moving…. really.
So yeah, we are becoming a dad. She is beginning to get a bit more exited about it, most of us have been from the moment we heard. But now, i feel myself in a constant circulation of either caretaker, sandwich maker, comforter or an escapee from a german war camp, the need to lay low and not make a sound is urgent, for my testicles and face may very well depend on it. She’ll turn in seconds, from her adorable sweet self, into the insatiable rage monster often associated with pregnancy. It feels as though I am constantly retrieving food for her, and like she goes to the bathroom every 5 minutes… literally, it doesn’t stop. But then I remember why she’s peeing and eating so much, and it doesn’t bother me at all… and then we forget, and shit hits the fan.
She will find any and all reasons to get defensive and yell at you. She wanted to murder someone yesterday because the had a laser, granted I was on the same page but still. She really isn’t prone to violence.
We’ve been bombarded with advise from her mother, and from mine. Her entire family knows, only a handful of people in mine do. I guess that’s what happens when you don’t live close to, or stay in touch with most of your family. And I’m glad for that. It gives me time to process all of this without influence from people I probably shouldn’t listen to in the first place.
Anyways, that’s enough from me.
Until next time.
