4 Things I’ve Learned About The Second Trimester

It doesn’t seem like 5 minutes ago that I was writing about the first trimester. But here we are, the start of week 24, and heading towards the end of the second trimester (gulp!).

If only it took just a little longer to make a baby. If only there were just a few more “mesters” to get through. We could call them Quintmester or Sexmesters. Then maybe we’d have more time to figure sh*t out! Who wouldn’t enjoy a good old sexmester? Actually, I think I may have stumbled across a sexmester once when I was exploring the wonders of the world wide web back in 1996! But now’s not the time for that kind of confession!

I Think I Wanna Marry You

Upon announcing our engagement before Christmas, I was quite overwhelmed with the amount of people interested to hear how I proposed. Did I have a ring? Did I get down on one knee? Did she see it coming? Ok, I say ‘people’, but really it was just you ladies. You fella’s out there really couldn’t care less. The extent of your interest was “nice one”.

Bigger Boobs Aint All That

Yes! It’s one of the first changes you notice. Great isn’t it? Those sweater puppies have never looked so good! You can’t stop staring at them, thinking about the fun you can have with them, watching her rub Bio-Oil into them. Unfortunately, watching, staring and thinking is about as close to those fun bags as you’re gonna get for the foreseeable future. Your gals boobs might get bigger, but they also get sore. Like out out of bounds sore. You have to give advance warning that you’re diving head first into those chesticles! One little twist, flick or accidental nudge and you’re going to “share” that pain my friend.

T-Minus 249 Days!

Friday 24th November 2017

“It could take months of trying. Maybe even years.”

“Well be better get started then!” we thought.

After all, we wanted to do this while we still had a bit of a spring in our step. And the “trying” part was something I was particularly looking forward to.

Fast forward six weeks later and BOOM! Months of trying my a**e!
