A Family That Blogs Together, Stays Together

Original Posting at NewlyParents.com here



As our pregnancy nears the end, our Friday nights are no longer our usual Friday nights. Friday night has always been (like many couples) a night to go out to dinner and spend the evening around the town as a way to unwind from the work week. Now, at week 37, we spend our evenings around the house with our (read: my) feet up.


I take my place on the couch, center cushion. Husband takes one of our pillows and puts it on the coffee table and I rest my potato shaped feet on them. He convinced me to let him take a picture of my feet yesterday but after seeing it, I refuse to post it. Imagine your feet, shaped like potatoes, stuffed into a pair of these shoes all day. I think I'll just wear my slippers to work from here on out.

Here's the problem I've found with putting my feet up on the coffee table. It seems like I have to pee every 30 minutes. So I put my feet up on the coffee table and after 30 minutes the baby moves his head around and all of the sudden I feel like I'm going to pee my pants. In my effort to rush to the bathroom I forget that my knees have locked up and I can't bend my legs to get them off the coffee table. I scream in pain while laughing at my predicament and usually Husband has to come over and help me slowly bend my legs. It's only a matter of time before I don't make it to the bathroom on time I'm afraid.

Tonight, while I had my feet propped up with the computer on my lap, Husband come over to join me on the couch. He brought his laptop with him and when I glanced over at his screen I realized we were both on our site getting ready to write up a blog. I had him snap this picture.
