I came up with this blog idea while I was pregnant. I actually thought of it on Saturday after Thanksgiving and planned to write it on Sunday, but instead I was at the hospital!
Sometimes, CJay really does say the darnedest things, and he's fortunate enough to have a wife with an incredible memory (and a wonderful sense of humor and lovely hair and awesome baking skills ... but I digress). Ha! I decided it would be funny to share some of the comments he made while I was pregnant. I do have his approval for this, but only if I include a disclaimer: "CJay is not a terrible husband and none of these comments made me mad." At least half of that statement is true. :)
(After I got home from class one night at 10:30 and took off my shoes.)
Your feet would only look worse if they were bloody stumps.
Yeah, your nose does look a little bigger.
Have you always had that big freckle on your stomach?
You would not believe how tired I am right now!
Whoa, your hands are really huge!
What are we gonna do if this kid acts like you?
Are you having a contraction? Is this the big one?
I forgot what you looked like when you weren't pregnant.
Can't you just punch yourself in the stomach and get this thing started?
And last but not least...
(When I was ~5 hours into labor)
I'm having terrible heartburn, if that makes you feel any better.
Just because I'm sharing things about CJay...
While I was sitting in the OR waiting for the doctor to stick a giant needle in my spine, the nurse/surgical tech/whoever she was asked me how I thought my husband was doing in the other room and if I thought he was really nervous. I said, "CJay's probably fine." Later that night I was looking through the pictures CJay had taken when Nathaniel was first born, and there was a picture of him. A picture of him in the other room waiting while I was getting a giant needle stuck in my spine and the lady was asking if he was okay. This is the picture...
As it turns out, CJay was doing just fine.
