Love is a Battlefield (well pregnancy is, at least with Baby G #2)

Awful, absolutely awful! That's how good I am at updating this blog....

I am going to try something a little different for today, todays' post is dedicated to Binderclips. So, here I go, wish me luck.

Dear Binderclips,

Sometimes life is a struggle, but it's easier knowing you will always be by my side.

I don't tell you I love you enough, but that's because I feel like you already know - but maybe you don't. I could say I love you more than all the stars in the sky (a saying my Mother said to me often), although I don't think that fully expresses how much you mean to me either.

I could say I love you more than anything but then that makes me think of how nothing is also something and we have no idea how big it really is. So, I guess I could say I love you more than nothing too, but that doesn't sound as nice. However, knowing you, you are now contemplating if "nothing" is, in fact, "something" and if so, what is it? Oh how I enjoy doing that to you.

Anyways, FOCUS (I'm talking to you Binderclips)!

The point is, how do you tell someone how much they mean to you, what is the best way to articulate it? I don't know but I'm going to try...

I miss you always

I've never felt safer than I do when I'm with you

I've never trusted someone more than I trust you

Even though you may not believe it, you give me strength when I'm going through hard times

I will continue to grow as a person for us and our children

I can't wait to grow old with you

Now to the good stuff....

At this point, I'm 34 weeks pregnant and look like and feel like I am going to have twins. This is clearly your fault as you are tall. Many times you find me looking at you with a grumpy look - what am I thinking?

YOU did this to me! 

This is all your fault! 

Baby G #2 (that's right folks, we're having another girl people - good luck Binderclips!) is kicking the crap out of my insides. Last night she kicked me so hard in the ribs it took my breath away (I considered doing the same to you to show you what I was going through but decided against it). My hips feel like someone took my legs and tried to rip them off of me (imagine a giant ripping or trying to rip the legs off of a person, but being unsuccessful and giving up and deciding to leave them there). I can't sleep at night due to the hip pain and all of her movements.

In short, I love you Binderclips but I really wish you had to deal with these things to see how it felt. You. have. no. idea. The only reason I would ever do this again is because I love you and our children so much that it doesn't matter. However, make no mistake, I WILL complain about it as much as I want to. Anyways, I love you.

NOTE: In my next life I hope I have the sense to be with someone who is not so tall ;)



  1. Congrats on Baby #2!!!

    Are you sure it's NOT twins?! Lol, just kidding. ;o)

  2. I expect you've had her by now, so congrats to you both.
