Aha Moment

I had an epiphany this week. DH and I had been talking about how the baby on the right was moving while I played a video game on Sunday, and joking about how it might be a 'gamer.' Back at work on Monday, he texted me that he had told several people about our little discovery.

All this time, I thought I was being selfish, because I wanted the experience of carrying a child. I felt guilty. I didn't realize how much my husband would gain from my pregnancy, how important it would be for him. Even though he's not carrying these children, he is totally invested in their development and the experience. He attends every appointment. He hears every heartbeat. He sees every movement. He may not have the children IN his tummy, but he is totally a part of this pregnancy.

So that's my aha moment for this week. God has blessed us BOTH with this experience. And its not just for me, T. gets the benefit of experiencing this with me. Yay for us!
