Pregnancy Can Seem Like It Lasts Forever - Here’s a look back
Now that baby Madelyn is finally here, it went back through all of my older posts about my wife’s pregnancy to put them in one, easy-to-read post. When I announced that I was going to become a dad again, I tried to provide weekly updates on the journey. That didn’t work out like I expected, but here are the 13 updates from week 12 to week 36.
Learning that you’re going to be a father, for the first time or the 3rd, 4th or even 5th time is an exciting time in a man’s life. I announced that my wife was pregnant on week 12 and little did I know what was in store over the next 6 months.
Now that we knew we were having another little girl, it came time to pick a name . We’ve obviously picked a name, but the search was rather interesting.
One of the big changes that happened over the next week was the increased feeling of movements and kicks from baby Madelyn. She used to kick quite a bit at nighttime and luckily for us now, she’s pretty mellow in the evenings.
Week 31 was just a way for me to say thanks to my wife for being such a trooper and for buying me beer while pregnant. The beer wasn’t for her, but I’m sure she received a few evil looks from people when a 31 week pregnant woman was buying beer.
