Just a quick update on all the things happening surrounding the baby.
We’re currently sitting on 17 weeks and 4 days. Almost half way! My wife’s belly is growing day by day and she’s pretty much back to her old energy level. We have a checkup appointment with the OB doctor later this afternoon, so hopefully we get a better look at the baby. It’s been a few weeks since our last ultrasound, so I’m really excited to see something that looks more like an actual baby than the garbled jelly bean we’ve been seeing up to this point.
This pregnancy has definitely had some challenges. I’ve been really busy at work and I’ve had a hard time motivating myself to get the crib started. I know it’s going to be a ton of work and I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. It’s also been difficult with my work schedule and my wife’s work schedule. to make time for each other. Even though we’re going through this life changing experience together, at times it feels like we hardly see each other. It doesn’t help that it seems like every single weekend we have something going on with family or friends. We’re going out of town together in two weeks, so hopefully we get some quality time together.
