Apparently, how to sleep through ANYTHING!!
Now, I love my dh ~ he's a great husband, a terrific father, he's fun, caring, a hardworker, smart and a great leader of our family. After long days of being....well...awesome, he's tired.
Very tired, obviously.
Last night, about 3:30am, I awoke to fairly bad pain in my abdomen/side. I must have been laying funny, or the baby was laying funny, or *something*. I tried to roll over - but that's not as easy as it sounds, when 8 months preggo. I just couldn't manuvuer myself to a position where the pain would subside ~ in fact, it just kept getting worse. I was just starting to freak out....
Let me pause here. In case you didn't already know this about me, I am a wimp. Seriously. It's probably a *really* good thing I don't go into labor - I would never survive.... now, back to our story:
.....so I reached over and grabbed my dh's hand. I had already been moaning and groaning, in my not-so-subtle way.
He didn't even budge. His snoring didn't break tempo or volume. I almost laughed, it was so humerous. It's probably what kept me from crying ~ I just figured I was on my own, so I hauled my body to a different position, got up, and managed to get rid of the pain and go back to sleep. To the lull of my dh's snore....
So there ya go ~ lessons from a father of five!
(well, told through his wife's eyes, anyway)
