My Husband is Pregnant

[Quinn pores over Barney’s prenup and notices a certain provision]
Quinn: I have to pay 2,000 dollars every time I gain a pound?!
Barney: Not every time. Just if it shows up at the weekly weigh-in. -How I Met Your Mother

One of our deputy friends Shift Buddy and his wife are expecting their third child. I may have mentioned that when she first announced her pregnancy it was really hard for me. Now that I’m pregnant with my rainbow, it is a little bit easier being around her.We had them over for dessert the other day-smores around our firepit.

Shift Wife and I were joking around about how our husbands are the pregnant ones. They both have had increased appetites since finding our we’re pregnant. It cracks me up!

Here’s Match enjoying some frozen yogurt by the fire. Dessert has been a hot topic in our household lately. 🙂

I even decided to start taking belly photos of Match to see if he develops a bump right along with me. I have to be honest-I wouldn’t mind if he did! Then we could work off the weight together in the end. It’s true what they say about second babies-this bump is growing FAST. I don’t look pregnant so much as I look like I gained a beer belly in a month. 😉

How many of you had husbands who were pregnant right along with you?



    Nick didn’t gain until after I had Turbo–he had a desk job and was not so active. Turbo hit a year and Nick started running.


    My belly popped so fast with the second!

    I wish! My boyfriend stayed skinny the whole time. I felt like such a lard next to him. I like your idea of both you and Match working off the weight together afterwards. Plus, then you won’t have to be bitter that only women’s bodies are ravaged by pregnancy. ;o)


    LOL!!! My hubs never gains weight. Jerkface.


    you look radiant!!

    when i find my mister and get preggers I will be sure to update you on the belly 😉


    HAHAHAH, love this!!!! And you do look absolutely radiant in this photo 🙂 Wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world to work off the extra weight together in the end, right?

    You are cuteness personified 🙂


    I don’t know if he gained the weight while I was pregnant- but over the years has definitely gained some- so yea we’ll blame it on the pregnancies 🙂

Your comments make my day!
