So, B and I have always had the nicknames. We're nickname people, what can I say? I'd be far too embarrassed to share them all with you here, but I had to go ahead and let the secret out about B's new fav nicknames for me:
Pregosaurus Rex and The Fire Breathing Pragon
Pause for excitement and slight delirium.
B's taken to this whole "pregnant" thing maybe a little too well. He loves that as long as he says something about me being pregnant he can pretty much follow it up with anything and I'll still smile. He calls it his "get out of jail free card".
B: "Wow honey, you're already showing!" (At 15dpo)... Enter extreme look of disapproval and shock on One Day's face... quickly followed by "I'm just kidding baby- don't be mad...stop acting so pregnant, Preggo!"
Enter One Day's reluctant giggle and subsequent sprint to the bathroom for yet another pee stick parade.
One Day: "I can't stand watching one more basketball game, can we pleeeeease watch something else?".
B: "Alright Pregosaurus Rex, why don't you calm down for a hot second and recognize the importance of the husband's roll in all of this. Don't take out your Fire Breathing Pragon on me just yet."
I laughed. I didn't want to laugh, but I totally laughed.
B: "Oh man, my back and my stomach and my calves and my neck and my shoulders and my chin are sore from my rockstar workout today at the gym. I'm soooo sooooooore everywhere, my life is so hard."
One Day: "You're kidding me, right? My ovaries are the size of your biceps (he has HUGE biceps) and my insides are ripping."
B: "It's not my fault, Little Baby Pregnant Face".
Argh- this pregnant card is making it way, way too easy on husband. We're gonna need to ramp up the ol' "pregnancy hormones" to make things just a little more uncomfortable for Mr. Jokes over there. You wanna see Pregosaurus Rex? I think I can make that happen for you.
"But I've got this huge head...and these tiny little arms..."
I love that man...and I love, love, love that right now, at least in this very moment, I'm carrying his baby(s). Please let it last. Don't let this slip away. He deserves it.
