"you've been really needy lately" what Travis said to me last night when I asked him for yet another back rub. I always have had a bad back (I used to not bring my textbooks home from school because it would hurt my back so much...which meant I wouldn't do my homework), but pregnancy really causes me (and every other girl out there) a lot of pain.

Don't you think that men should be the ones that have to go through pregnancy? Women are more sympathetic and empathetic, they would be better supporters. I actually have a friend who while she was giving birth to their son, her husband was eating a burrito!!! Can you believe that? I thought I had it bad when Travis slept through about 20 hours of my 27 hour labor with Audrey(I had to throw a pillow at him to wake him up when the Dr. came in and told me it was time to start pushing).

I don't mean to imply that Travis doesn't help me out a lot, because he does. He even did the dishes the last two days! He will always rub my back when I ask him, and he will run down the stairs to get things when I don't have the energy. I just wish we could reverse the roles for one day. Girls need more credit for what we go through!

Mike was asleep during some of my labor too; I barely had the energy to throw anything at him

I like your idea about reversing the roles for one day... it would be an experience they would never forget :)

So... are you pregnant again??!! I am the same way with Kyle. He probably helps out way more than most husbands but he can always do more!! :)
