Michael also has baby brain!

I just had to point out that I'm apparently not the only one completely losing my mind these days. Michael has been completely scatter brained and doing things that I thought only I had been doing. A few weeks ago, while Michael was at work, he managed to lock his keys in his truck. To make the situation even better, he was out on location, in the middle of nowhere, and left the truck running!! Nice, right? I tried so hard not to die of hysterical laughter when he told me this. Which, now that I think of it, am totally shocked that he even told me. He knew I would only laugh! :) Then, last week, Michael and I went to the grocery store and parked next to a woman getting her children out of the car. He pretty much seemed to stop mid sentence talking to me and directed his full attention at this woman. I had no idea what in the world was going on in his head, but it sure was funny to watch. His just staring over in there direction and it's a wonder the woman didn't look over and give him a funny look! Michael gets out of the car, shuts the door, and is standing there waiting for me to get out. Really, Michael? Seriously? You did it again! The keys are still in the ignition. So, it turns out that he was staring the woman down because he was trying really hard to figure out what kind of car seat she had. Oh, that is priceless. I think I laughed the whole way through the store.

Michael has been amazing and has gone to all of my doctor's appointments with me. Somehow he comes up with questions that I can't even think of, but that I should be asking. When it comes time for me to weigh myself, he for some reason, does the same. And then complains about it later. He has actually made a few comments to the nurse and the doctor about how he's gained weight since I've been pregnant. Their answer to him is simple, "It's completely normal and most men do." I don't think he liked that answer to much. But hey, it's better than them saying, yeah bud, lay off that tub of ice cream and you won't feel like a tub of lard! To me, I seriously can't tell that he's gaining weight at all. I'm probably just focusing on my ever expanding belly and the fact that my feet have disappeared! :)

I have heard that men gain weight and it may or may not be true. It is really cute that he's concerned about it though!

Visiting from SITS. Congrats on the upcoming birth of your baby. It's very sweet that Michael is so involved in your pregnancy. Sounds like he has "pregnancy brain" as well as pregnancy weight gain. LOL!
