"True, he's not actually carrying the baby you'll both soon be cradling (nor will he end up with the stretch marks to prove it), but he's carrying other loads — if only so you don't have to. There's plenty of effort to go around when it comes to pregnancy — and plenty of sacrifices to be made on both sides. You get sciatica; he gets more dog walking. You turn green at the sight of uncooked chicken; he mans the broiler. You crave watermelon in the middle of the night (and the middle of winter); he's driving around trying to find an open market that sells fruit out of season. You get mood swings, he gets swung at. He's the yin to your expectant yang — you couldn't do it without him, or at least, you wouldn't want to try. "

I LOVE this quote! It's so true! I do try not to be all 'wishy-washy, moany groany' while I'm pregnant. After all, I agreed to this situation as well, and fully understood the challenges it brings after having gone through it three times already. However, it still also remains true that once in a while, I need an extra break or a little extra help, or just a listening ear so I can whine a little bit about how much my growing belly itches, or how I can't get my own socks on now ;) My husband remains that faithful, steadfast, always there for me guy! I love you Joel! Couldn't do this without you :) Three more months, Love, and we'll be holding our baby girl :)
