All Your Player Four Questions Answered

In case you missed this yesterday, we are expecting another kid. It is April Fool’s day today, but this is not an April Fool’s joke, which is why I posted the original picture yesterday. I knew I had to post it yesterday or wait until tomorrow, so I hustled my butt to finish it before last night. So I promised today I would answer your questions about player four. I think that will be baby’s nickname until we find out. I’ve been wanting something good to call him/her anyways. If there’s any question you have that I didn’t answer, let me know and I will throw it up here too. 🙂

How far along are you?

I am almost out of the first trimester. Player four is the size of a tart kumquat. We just heard his/her heartbeat for the first time last week, nice and strong in the 170s.

When are you due?

I am due in late October. Not saying on the date.

But please, can’t I know your due date? I won’t tell anyone. Please, please, please. I’m your friend/cousin/uncle/monkey. 

Are you my midwife or my husband? You’re not? Then you really don’t need to know. I don’t really like the idea of due dates. They’re really just guess dates and only 5% of babies are born on their due dates anyways. I don’t like the date feeling like it’s looming over me and I don’t like people pestering me if I’ve had that baby yet. Answer. I successfully avoided the vast majority of this pestering by keeping Dom’s due date a secret, so I am definitely doing this again. Player four will press start on outside life just as soon as he/she is ready.

Are you going to find out what you are having?

Yes, I like to find out for bonding purposes and because we name him/her right away and start referring to them by name. They are a person, I like to give them their name.

Does Dominic understand that you’re having a baby? 

I’m not sure on this one. Sometimes yes and sometimes no I think. He definitely knows what a baby is and if I look at pictures of other babies he will exclaim baby! over and over again. But if I ask him where the baby is, sometimes he will point to my belly and sometimes he will just look at me like ‘Seriously, lady, I have no idea what you’re talking about.’

How have you been feeling? 

I’ve been feeling okay. I feel like I felt a lot sicker this first trimester with player four than I did with Dominic, but I don’t know if I actually felt sicker or if I just don’t remember how sick I felt with Dominic. I am definitely a lot more tired. This past week or so though I have felt really good so I’m hoping that keeps up!


Okay, those are all the questions I can think of, but if you have more let me know! I’m hoping that by putting these up here I won’t have to repeat myself a million times. I know I might have to anyways, but it makes me feel better to hope that I won’t lol. Or maybe when people ask I’ll just be like, here’s player four’s FAQ. I’ll keep this updated as we know more – like when we find out whether we are having a girl or a boy!
