Just to warn you, you may find this disturbing.
The other night, I woke up and used the bathroom. I think it was the fourth time, but who’s counting? Charlotte, who seems to only take cat naps that last two minutes, was awake.
It was so hard for me to fall back asleep because I swear girlfriend was trying to claw her way out! It hurt! It was like she was raking her fingers across my belly, over and over in the same place.
And maybe it was my half-sleeping state, but I started imagining what a terrifying short story it would make. Like something Stephen King or Edgar Allen Poe would come up with. A crazed baby still in the womb breaking her way out like a baby Pterodactyl.
Anyway, she finally calmed down and I got back to sleep.
But she still hurts me at least once a day with her movements. I really hope she’s playing tricks on me and comes out being super chill.
