Half Way There!

Today is the official halfway point of Cletus's journey to this world via my cootch.

What have we learned this far?

If the first trimester goes well, the second is going to be a nightmare.

One day you look a little pudgy and the next you wonder how the hell you could look more pregnant than you are now.

You can hurt yourself in your sleep. I've done this several times now.

Carpal tunnel is a bitch. Damn you extra fluid.

Your abdomen can feel like it's ripping and not actually be.

I miss cheeseburgers.

I still don't know if it's gas or the kid.

I wonder what it's like to party til bar close again.

Wiping is only going to get worse before it gets better.

None of my shoes fit anymore.

You can eat nonstop all day and not gain weight.

I'm more scared shitless now than before about having to take care of a kid. I'm sure it'll be fine but getting adjusted will suck. I don't adjust to change well.

It'll be fine! It will also be different, but you WILL fall into a routine quickly. And from there, it's just a series of awesome milestones, a bit of frustration, but lots and lots of love. :-)

You'll get the hang of it soon enough. Just the fact that you're scared by the prospect of being a parent shows you get the importance of it.

You an handle your co-workers. Kids are a breeze by comparison!

Kids are wonderful...seeing the world through their eyes makes it all worth while.
