Laurie’s been sharing a great Q&A over on her blog through most of the pregnancy… thought I should share my answers as well (although the questions don’t all fit an expectant dad as well as they do an expectant mom).
How Far Along: Less than 80 hours to go
Total Weight Gained/Loss: 10-15 pounds… although I’ve started watching what I’m eating again and I’ve lost 7 or 8 pounds in the last few weeks… so a net gain of 4-7 as of today.
Sleep: No real changes for me.
Best Moment of the Week: seeing Laurie get excited as we countdown the days and hours till the boys arrive.
Movement: Laurie says they’re still moving fairly regularly but not as much as before. It’s amazing to feel them move and squirm from time to time — especially when you can feel something recognizable like a foot, hand or a knee.
Food Craving: Chinese food and Mexican food.
Labor Signs: We haven’t worked out our signals yet… but I’m keeping my phone near me at all times just in case. Luckily unless something changes drastically in the next 70 hours or so we won’t be making any rush trips in the middle of the night to the hospital.
Belly Button: Mine hasn’t changed in the last 31 years or so that I can tell.
Stretch Marks: Those appeared in college when I took on my “freshman 50.”
Wedding rings: It’s scuffed up and scratched up but still fits like it did the day we bought it.
What I miss: Walks at night with Laurie and her being able to go where she wants with me.
What Im looking forward to: Getting to meet my baby boys in less than 4 days!
Other NEW news this week: My co-workers threw me a surprise baby shower this past week. It was very sweet to have everyone there and their presence (and gifts of diapers and wipes) were so greatly appreciated!
