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". 

Example 1-
 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.

Example 2-
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.

Example 3-
 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".
giggle giggle 

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.


  1. How great that you are able to have fun with it! My husband learned very quickly not to tease me because the pregnancy hormones made me SUPER-sensitive and I would cry at anything and everything (you wouldn't believe the daft things on tv I cried at!) So I hope you get to continue enjoying this all so much, and don't forget to sometimes *remind* hubby that you are pregnant and he should be nice to you (even if you really aren't that bothered by what he did/said... how often do you get to do that?!)

    Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers xx

  2. I keep imagining you with this enormous pregnant belly. But now I am imagining you with the enormous pregnant belly, a huge head, and tiny little arms.

    Funny post. I laughed out-loud.

  3. Definitely one of my favorite posts! Just a tip... don't show him the "Pregnant Women are Smug" video. If he's anything like my hubby, he'll use it against you (of course in a jovial and joking manner) every chance he gets! LOL

  4. Awww! My husband adds "-osaurus Rex" onto the end of everything. I shouldn't show him this blog post. Haha
