Married Couple Sleeping Separately

As a little girl one of my favorite television shows was "I Love Lucy". I watched every weekend, faithfully. Now as an adult, if I happen upon the show-channel surfing-it grabs my attention. One of the things I found interesting and a bit confusing, when I was younger, is the idea of married couples sleeping in separate beds. After all my parents shared a bed and that's what I thought all married couples did. To my surprise, I've learned for various reasons plenty of married couples sleep in separate beds and in some cases separate rooms. According to new research from Toronto's Ryerson University, 30 to 40 percent of couples sleep apart at night. Well, at seven months pregnant you can imagine that it's getting a little bit more difficult to get around as well as sleeping comfortably is close to non-existent. A couple of months ago I purchased a full body maternity pillow by Boppy and it helped a lot to relieve lower back aching. About a month ago I began developing a soreness in my pelvic area which I've read is usually diagnosed as Symphasis Pelvic Disorder (SPD) which can be debilitating in some cases. When I mentioned it to my Obstetrician she confirmed that it tends to get worse during the progression of the pregnancy and there was nothing much I could do about it. This was a great disappointment because I had committed to walking each day in order to get as much exercise as I could for my and the baby's health. As I had been warned, the aching in my pelvis now developed into a pain that changed my style and pace of walking dramatically. The pain made me not want to walk at all. If KL could carry me from room to room and from destination to destination I would surely welcome it. Recently, when KL and I were at home, I fell asleep in my favorite spot-the chaise next to the window- while he watched television. With a big cushiony pillow and three smaller accent pillows I can prop myself up and place the pillows in just the right places. I napped for a few hours. When I woke, of course like all women in my condition, I had to make a visit to the royal throne. Without thinking, I stood up walked to the bathroom and came back. I stopped and looked at KL and told him, "I don't have any pain." I didn't have any pain for the rest of the day. The days to follow I slept in our bed and woke up every morning very sore, stiff, and barely able to move. Then on occasion I'd take a nap on the chaise and wake up without pain and easier to move. A light bulb went on. Our bed, chairs, and even love seat are too firm and sitting in them for any extended amount of time caused the SPD in my pelvis to flare up. Last night, While KL worked on his laptop I fell asleep in the chaise watching television. Before heading to our bedroom KL asked if I wanted to stay there or come to bed. I told him I would stay on the chaise. Again I woke up this morning without pain. KL woke up assuming I would come to bed in the middle of the night and was surprised to find me still sleeping on the chaise. He joked he felt abandoned by me and our dog, Storm(who normally sleeps on the foot of our bed every night). Storm had taken a spot next to me and was sleeping comfortably. KL asked, "So, you guys are going to sleep in the living room now." I responded, "Only for the next three months."

The Sonogram... From the Wife's 'Point of View"


Some time ago I had come to the conclusion that KL and I would not have a child of our own. It came with a lot of heartache and tears, but I resolved that maybe God had other plans for us. After all, it had been seven years since we lost a baby by miscarriage and were now considered advanced in age and possibly facing infertility. 
 
It’s been four months since KL and I learned we are expecting our first child and four days since learning we’re having a little girl. It all still seemed so surreal to me until the day I saw her playing with her hands on the ultrasound monitor.

Unlike KL, who had as much difficulty as if he were trying to decipher a Rorschach test, I could now see she has the form of a real baby; not just a blurb on the screen. I could count her fingers and toes. I could see her little legs, and before the nurse announced I could tell she is a she. 

Prior to the ultrasound I wasn't sure if the occasional poking inside was in fact her movements. Now, I know they are. She must have been annoyed by the prodding of the wand because the doctor said she wouldn't stay still in order for her to capture all the images needed to complete the anatomy scan. I could actually feel her moving around inside during the process. Now, what used to be a flutter once a day has turned into all day entertainment of somersaults in my belly; a sensation I’m still getting used to.

I think about what it will feel like to hold our daughter for the first time. I can’t wait to give her kisses and hugs and never want to put her down. I look forward to hearing her tiny cries, baby cooing, messy diapers, and my lack of sleep.

God knows how grateful I am for this blessing. I haven’t stopped smiling; even through tears.

10/24/2013 The Making Marriage Cool Again Seminar and Baby Announcement

Today's Sonogram

Forgot how great naps were, needed one today



Seeing the sonogram of our baby today brought so many emotions to the forefront. I was excited for my wife and myself. I was even more excited to learn about the gender of the baby, which was??? (Tune into our Thursday radio show to learn for yourself. LOL www.Blogtalkradio.com/GeeQue-Palace 8-10pm). I found myself, thanking the Lord for answering our prayers, knowing how much Tiff and I prayed after losing our first child 7 years ago. There was the excitement of how the family was going to react with the news.

As the thoughts rolled the next to show up were the emotions of sadness; I found myself wishing my grandmother was here so I could share this news with her. Sitting with her and talking about her prayers for her family being answered once again. She always wanted the best for her family before herself. I felt sad for my wife, because I knew her mother was excited about being a grandmother for the first time. Plus my wife would get so enamored with the idea of her mother's reaction to the pregnancy.
It was then onto the feeling of determination. The thoughts hit me hard; I have to be more of a protector for this child and my wife. The blessing was given and now I have the responsibility of making sure both are cared for no matter what the cost to myself. All my business ventures have to be on point. Risk vs Rewards have to be weighed from the door. I have to make sure my books, my writing, peaking and all business ventures are thought provoking and honor the Lord, if I am going to care for this family. My body has to change and healthier is one of the goals to make sure I am here for as long as I can be for all the members of my family not just the baby. 

The next feeling was remorse. I thought about some of my other children, who for the reasons I mentioned in my book "From From Gigolo to Jesus", placed me outside the loop in their lives for different amounts of time. In turn it cause me to missed this point in their lives. Not all of my children but enough to touch my heart strings. I thought about how my ungodly actions from when I didn't know the Lord allowed me to create children who I weren't there for. Actions which didn't allow me to be there with them or their mothers during this process of the pregnancy. 

I guess that is why I needed the nap this afternoon when I got home. The one thing I do know is the Lord allows you to learn from your experiences so when its time to work from his grace you'll pull from what you once were. I thank the Lord for all the negatives which once filled my life for now they allow me to be the man, father, author, businessman, teacher and husband I think he could be proud of. 

Either way the real work started the minute I said "Lord forgive me for my sins and I accept your son Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior". I am going to end on that fact and go hard each day to make a difference so folks can see the God I serve in my actions.

I need your help to get Tiff to ATL

God Bless everyone. I thank you for coming by our Marriage Blog.

 I need Your Help. I am going to do something I know my wife Tiffany Braxton Belvin is not going to like but I am saying I am sorry up front.
As many of you know she is representing the state of New York in the Miss American Beauties Plus Pageant. 

In 21 days she is set to head to ATL to do her best at winning the title. Last year she was the NY representative and because of my personal circumstances she wasn't able to go. She helped me while I was on personal leave from teaching. I know she was hurt by not be able to make it but she wanted to hold things down. It hurt me to not be able to change that fact.

Well it looks as if some personal and business problems of her own has created a problem with her going to the pageant. As much as she doesn't want me to say or do anything outside of our home, I love her to much not to try what I can to help her with her dreams. I love her too much to see her sadden by something I know she wants badly which is just outside her reach.

This is where I need the help of everyone on my page all 3800+ on my page and the 2000+ on hers. I need everyone If you can to give $1 or $2 or any amount you're OK with to help me raise enough money in 20 days to sent my wife to ATL for this pageant. I am sorry if this sounds crazy or even disrespectful, I am doing what I can at school and with Bravin Publishing to raise whatever possible to get her to the pageant. I humbly ask everyone for help and as well as pray for us to pull this off. Tiff is not one to ask anyone for anything and I too can be strong willed but this request is not for me.

I have a donation link here on our Making Marriage Cool Again page in the upper left hand corner of the page.  I am going to use it since I didn't set one up just for this situation. Please pray for us. I am going to make this happen for my wife in whatever way I can. So again I ask please pray for us, I am sure if its for her to do the Lord will make a way.

God Bless you all
