I stayed in bed until the very end. He was supposed to arrive late Thursday night but ended up here Friday morning instead. I passed many excruciating Hours In Between dreaming crazy things like that his flight had been diverted to Cincinnati or that he had to hitch a ride on Noah's Ark to get home.
When I saw him, I thought his beard looked a lot nicer in person than in pictures. He thought my belly was much smaller than he imagined it would be.
He likes getting kicked. But he says he's ready to meet our baby on the outside already.
I got out of bed after two weeks, and my legs are weak. The baby also seems a lot bigger and heavier than she did previously. I can't believe how much she's grown while I was just lying there.
And I now officially understand lightning crotch. I wish I didn't.
But I promise I won't complain. I got everything I wanted: a healthy baby, a safe deployment, and my family all together again before baby arrives.
I will remind myself of that when my legs go numb with pain.

I'm so happy he's home, safe and sound and that you're sweet little girl has managed to wait for him. :-)

We did refer to babies as having dropped and I know some still do.
Only because I live on the Gulf coast and know people in the business do I know that an oil tanker sits offshore until it is lightered. I suspect there is something to grammar of the lightening crotch akin to a ship lightering.
Lightering - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaLightering is the process of transferring cargo between vessels of different sizes, usually between a barge and a bulker or oil tanker.

As much as I love having these updates I DO hope this is the last we hear until the baby is about 72 hrs old. Enjoy these precious QUIET moments together.
And congratulations!! I am so very VERY happy for you guys!!
