Didn't get around to the belly pic. I shall try tonight. I didn't get around to the pic coz Dh is melting down at a rate of nots, or is it knots? The way I see it, we have the time and space to focus on him right now. We have the ability to make sure his anxiety is managed and is panic is kept within 'normal' ranges. I am physically pregnant and he is emotionally pregnant. So, this is his time. Do I resent not being the center of attention. I guess so, on some level. But to be honest, every day I keep my kids growing in me is the gift of a lifetime so, really, I'm OK with concentrating on him for a couple of months.
As is my reaction to everything I googled and read blogs by dads of twins. I found a great blog by a dad who detailed how stressful it was for him during the pregnancy, how his anxiety levels shot through the roof when he thought about the two humans that were on the way. And then how the moment he held them, all that anxiety just melted away.
This is my hope and prayer for my DH.
