My Husband, The HERO
I was reminiscing about my pregnancy last year and feeling so very thankful for my husband. He was with me throughout our pregnancy. With the exception of the first appointment when my doctor confirmed that I was pregnant and during the 3 hour glucose test - he was at every appointment. I say that he is my hero for many reasons. With every craving he would be out the door and get whatever baby & I wanted. When my feet were sore & swollen: he would rub them for me. When I had to roll out of bed every five seconds to pee: he would give me nudge (a SHOVE by the end of the pregnancy). We had our evening ritual (which I recommend to all pregnant couples): Every night (around once I began to "show") I asked hubby to rub my belly and talk to our son...It was wonderful for bonding as husband and wife AND for our son to recognize daddy's voice. An added benefit: the coco butter, belly balm, oil etc..kept my skin supple. I didn't get any stretchmarks. It's hard to believe that almost a year has passed...
