ramblings from the noisedoctor

so, when do I get my wife back?

Filed under: marriage, pregnancy — noisedoctor @ 6:27 am

I feel like I’ve been living alone for most of the past two months. There are times that I see evidence that there’s a zombie sharing my house and bed.

My wife is now almost 13 1/2 weeks into our pregnancy. I just keep hoping that she will hit this “energy boost” that I keep hearing about that’s supposed to kick in at the 2nd trimester. The weekends aren’t so bad. But, during the week, when she gets home from work, I can usually get about 3 sentences out of her before the eyes glaze over and “zombie-mode” kicks in. I just hope I get back the woman I love here at some point.

Dealing with the food aversions and crazed eating games hasn’t been too bad–more funny to watch: going from “I’m not hungry” to “I need to eat something right now” to preparing a huge plate of something (usually pasta or mashed potatoes) to “I can’t eat any more” (usually after 3 or 4 bites out of the huge plate). I knew my wife would be tired early on in pregnancy. I just didn’t know she’d sleep 12 hours and be barely communicative during her pseudo-waking hours.

I’ll survive… I just hope the zombie moves out and my wife returns… I miss her. I miss us.


  1. that is SO sweet. be sure to share it with her-after she wakes up in a few months. then she’ll cry hysterically and say you don’t love her anymore b/c she’s so fat and ugly. sigh. now i know how much my husband went thru 4 times!

  2. thanks, I will. she’s showing some signs of coming out of the zombie state. Things were going great early last week, but then a small setback… we’ll see how this week goes.
