36 weeks

At only 4 weeks until our due date, baby is still kicking and hiccuping away happily, bags have been packed, lists have been written and our household has gone into emotional overdrive...

I'm really feeling for J right now, she seems so uncomfortable with all the reflux and next to no sleep I'm honestly a little concerned that she has retreated a little and seems a bit unhappy at the moment, but I'm trying to remind myself of how overwhelmed, tired and uncomfortable she is right now. I try to be a supportive partner and I try to just bite my tongue rather than speak up but alas, sometimes I can't and things become a little less than fantastic, but it never lasts long and we always move forward.

Aside from the sometimes tense moments, life is amazing and I cannot WAIT for this baby to arrive!

Here's the 36 week belly pic:


  1. My wife is only 31 weeks, but I already totally understand where you're coming from. I feel awful for my wife because she's already so full of discomfort and I know it's only going to increase. I feel guilty because sometimes I'm not the most patient person after an 11 hour workday. It's hard for everybody. Just think, soon that babe will be here and it'll all be worth it. :) That's what I keep telling myself!

  2. So glad to know I'm not alone!
