'Get Up!' Pregnant Mom Finds Perfect Way To Keep Daddy Awake

Going through 9 months of pregnancy is no easy feat, the sleepless nights, the ever-changing craves, and the worried husband who desperately tries to comfort can make things a bit overwhelming. It's the little things one finds to make the suffering a tad more enjoyable.


Just like Wisconsin's Samantha Mravik-Miller, who went into labor with her third child towards the end of last year. She came packing to ensure that her husband was more than awake to cater her every need.

Samatha had posted on Facebook, a picture of the Nerf gun she had brought to make sure that her husband was attentive to the crying new-born, as well as having some much-needed laughs, in the process.

So, every time hubby nodded off... Pow! He would get shot and be reminded of his duties. It's a genius idea that I'm sure will catch on, I expect to see hospitals and delivery room floors littered with thousands of the soft Nerf bullets, with newborn mothers laughing maniacally after a few sleepless nights.

Samantha's post, captioned with "Mom hack level 1,0000", went viral bringing up questions, as to how the idea came to be? The heat-packing mom recently noted that "This post came about because when my son was born, my husband slept through him crying when we were in the hospital three nights in a row," "I remember having to throw an empty water bottle at him to try and wake him up to help me get our crying baby.”
