So for the months before my wife was pregnant, she told me how easy this would be. Our son was no problem, she had no morning sickness, she didn't have mood swings, lots of energy  andno pain, other than he sat right in her back and caused some discomfort. It was the kind of pregnancy that other women cursed her for having.

This time, not AT ALL what the last pregnancy was...

This time around, my wife is having back pain again...and had morning sickness, MAJOR mood swings, no energy, just to name a few things.

So, I am sometimes at a loss. I take care of our son, bathe him, feed him, put him to bed, play with him talk to him, take him to school, try to make sure I am cleaning the house, making dinner, doing the laundry, etc., basically trying to take the stress off of her.

While I am exhausted at the end of the day, the payoff is when my wife puts her hand on her pregnant belly and tells me to talk to our daughter and she calms down. My wife then tells me that the baby is at a point where she is developing her hearing and will know me as soon as she is born, just from my touch and my voice. It will soothe her...and that is the comfort I needed last night after an exhausting day.

The countdown is on to June 2nd and I can't wait for that day to meet her. What is weird to think, she will know me, just from my voice and touch and I will know her, just from the pain my wife has been going through and the pictures from the sonograms. Crazy.
