My pregnancy changed how I feel about my husband
If I had to describe how my relationship was with my husband, I’d probably just say comfortable. We never really had a honeymoon phase and going from friends to dating to marriage just all seemed to happen naturally. But a few months into my pregnancy some switch seemed to just flip and I am just so obsessed with him now.
I can’t seem to get enough of him and I find myself following him from room to room like a lost puppy, and he’s taking it like a champ. He works from home and I’m currently not working so I’ll just hang out with him in his office all day, and he always makes sure to take regular breaks so I can sit on his lap for a few minutes here and there.
Just little things about him are my favorites now. I love feeling his slow, steady heartbeat when I lay my head on his chest when he sleeps, and I love feeling that same heartbeat speed up against my back when I sit on his lap and he’s fighting a big battle in his video games.
I love his muscular build, because it feels like getting wrapped up in the warmest, coziest blankets.
I love that he treats my cravings and complaints with an urgency I can’t even match.
And most of all I love that if I really think about it, none of this behavior is new. I’m so excited to build a family with this man and I hope that these feelings I get with him don’t go away after our child is born.
