So over the past few days it was confirmed that yes, that is kicking and it’s become more and more common and it wakes me up in the middle of the night. It was cute at first but now I’m struggling to learn to sleep through the aerobics. After a couple of nights I only wake up for the particularly strong ones, such as when baby Fox doesn’t approve of my sleeping position (how I miss sleeping on my stomach…).
It’s all surprising to me because even though it’s normal to feel the baby at 16 weeks, as a first timer I wasn’t really expecting kicking sessions until another month or so, some people say that my compact size plays a role, who knows…
The bump keeps growing, can’t really hide it anymore. To strangers it may look like a love affair with McDonalds but to people that know me it’s pretty obvious that there’s a baby on board. I’ve got a new t-shirt that reads “Expecting: to kick your ass if you touch the bump”, it turns out that Spencers has a very cool maternity/baby section after digging past all of the “daddy is an asshole” merchandise, I can do lot of damage to the wallet in that small piece of wall.
On the hormonal front the questions is: will I ever be able to read this book without crying?
We got this book from grandma Fox several weeks ago, it’s super cute. The first time I read it I was crying so hard I went through about a 1/3 of a box of tissues. Weeks later Fox read it to me to try to cheer me up during a “blah” moment and it had me crying. I tried to picked it up again recently and the waterworks were on in no time. I’m hoping that it’s just my hormones in general that make me all teary at the sight of anything cute or happy, otherwise it will be daddy Fox’s job to read this to baby Fox.
