Dude....my wife is pregnant?

So during this whole pregnancy, I've whined commented to my husband that some days I think he forgets I'm even pregnant. I hear about all these other husbands who talk to the baby all the time and dote on their wife hand and foot. I rarely get any of that. Hmph. Perhaps I need one of those husbands instead. I kid. Don't get me wrong, he's over the moon excited, he just shows it in a different way...which usually in my eyes is the wrong way.

Well over the weekend my hubs and parents trekked over to the outlet malls to peruse the Motherhood Maternity store. It's at that point I think it finally hit him.

The five positive pregnancy tests...(yes five, a girls gotta be sure)
Our first ultrasound, seeing the little peanut on screen
Hearing the heartbeat
My somewhat growing, flabbier belly
Picking up our baby furniture
Wandering the overwhelming aisles of Babies R Us

None of this seemed to do the trick.....

But trying on maternity clothes with that ridiculous fake, Velcro on bump....
that's what did it for him?

I walked out of the fitting room and the look on his face was of utter shock. OMG, my wife really is pregnant. And he must have told me about 5 more times that weekend how cool it was to see me actually look pregnant. If I knew all it was going to take for him was to see a fake baby belly, I'd have shoved a pillow up my shirt months ago! Boys are funny.

I only wish we'd have thought to snap a quick cell phone picture to post...I really did look about 20 months pregnant, it was rather amusing. Oh well. Maybe next time. Here's a few of the things I picked up! Hurry up spring (and baby belly) I want to bust out my new digs!

I'm thinking red shoes...way more fun!

This side rucheing business seems to be the rage in the maternity world. I must admit, it is rather flattering...and as the sales lady so wisely said, it helps you look pregnant, not just fat. Umm...music to my ears, sign me up for about 20 of those!

I think I actually "squeed" when I saw polos. The world is where it should be...my staple spring/summer shirt. The one I got is yellow...I'm sure more will be added to the collection considering my non preg wardrobe has practically one in every color.

The classic white shirt. Note the elastic under the boobs...that's key! Otherwise those blousy ones just look like mumus! It looked especially good with my black polka dot bra underneath.....

One night we were out for my hubby's birthday...I was 23 weeks pregnant....and he said, "Wow...this is the first time I'm REALLY noticing you're pregnant"....

GEE...well over halfway there...


He sees me every day, we get ready together...and then he sees me struggle to get into a booth and it dawns on him.

OH, and this is funny too...a lady at work earlier on asked him how I was doing, etc...

He goes "Shes doing great! She's 15 now, we're really excited"...

and he tells me this...

and I almost hit him!

I was freaking 21 weeks!!!!!!! hahaha.

So now, he quizzes himself every week to make sure he knows the facts. :)

love our men

Cute clothes!!! I can't wait to wear maternity clothing...I'm such a dork. LOL!

Molly said...

Cute, cute, cute! I can't wait for spring either. This snow sucks!!!

Jules said...

Your hubs is funny and I think that certain things hit people in different ways. I didn't know they had a fake baby belly for you to try on clothes with. Too funny!

I love the first dress and that will look super cute with red shoes. I also like the polo.

Ashley Paige said...

love your maternity swag, momma! i'm gonna need to start hitting up the outlets! i never even thought of that!!! old navy just isn't going to cut it until August!! :) And what a silly husband! haha.. Boys... (shakes head)...

katie + bret said...

aww, your hubs.. lol. he will get there!

Cute clothes!! I always want some maternity clothes because they are so cute and I am no where near being pregnant! Maybe I can grab a belt and just go with it :)

Marjorie said...

Your husband isn't the only one in denial. My husband definitely doesn't talk to the belly, but he does rub it every now and then. I think it's just harder for them to grasp that their child is actually growing in there until it's thrown in their face. Silly men.

Your new clothes are ADORABLE!

Gwen said...

Love the new look of the blog. :)

I don't think it ever really hit Brian that I was pregnant until I was in labor. He finally got that "oh crap" look that I had been waiting for. LOL!!!

Adorable clothes too!!! I swear I hated giving up my maternity clothes. They are so comfy!!! XOXO

Thats so funny. My cousin's hubby was kinda the same way. Whenever she felt sick, he told her she was faking it. K maybe he'!

bananas. said...

Whoa...didn't finish my comment...but yea i think your hubby is good especially now that he's realized you are pregnant.

EmilyBill said...

That first dress is adorable. I want one and I'm not even pregnant!

Jen said...

Really cute stuff you picked up! That dress is so pretty, and I agree about the red shoes.

P.S. Love the new blog design! One of my fav color combos!

Nikki said...

I'm just glad we live in a generation that actually wants cute maternity clothes...I don't know what was going through the heads of women in the past when they shopped for their preggo clothes. Definiely no denim rompers for me.
