Pregnancy (im)perfections

***UPDATED 6.15PM***

Just MORE evidence. I picked up Daisy from daycare tonight and one of the carers took the time to tell me that she asked Daisy is her Mummy was having a baby today and Daisy said “Mummy’s BIG”. You know what they say…out of the mouth of babes.

Original post follows…

Over the last few days I have had the following said to me/occur to me. I must be looking really good these days AND I have almost 3 months still to go. Things are only going to get better from here…Awesome!

Scene 1: Visiting neighbours (To Rob’s dad) farm on the weekend. I did not have time to have a shower, it was 8.30am and clearly was not looking my best.
Billy: “Gee look at you pregnant lady!”
Me: “Yeah, I know. Still got 3 months to go too!”
Billy: “Three months?! What you got, twins in there?”
Me: “Watch yourself old man” (yes I actually did say that back to him)

Scene 2: After 6 hour car trip on the way home from the farm, and having unpacked everything and put on some washing I said to Rob (who was sitting on the couch)
Me: “I feel so tired. Exhausted even.”
Rob: “Aren’t you meant to be glowing and full of energy”
Me: “Did you seriously just say that to me?”
Rob: *furiously back peddling* “Well in your second trimester isn’t that what is meant to happen?”
Me: “I’m in my F***ing third now”
Rob: “Well there you go!”

Scene 3: At the local supermarket doing the weekly shopping yesterday. A fellow pregnant woman strikes up conversation with me as we pack our bags
Pregnant lady: “It’s fun doing this in our current conditions isn’t it?”
Me: “Yeah I know. I’m just glad I am doing it by myself and don’t have my daughter here”
Pregnant lady: “So, how long do you have to go?”
Me: “Just under 3 months – I think – end of October.”
Pregnant lady: “Oh. *pause as she looks at me again* I am due in 2 weeks but I guess I am small.”
She then proceeded to chat to me about her partner, and how she gave birth last time, CLEARLY thinking that she had found a fellow lesbian pregnant friend in me because SURELY no straight woman would have THAT hair do.

One word for you people. HOTT.

    Ouch – but at least you’re giving your readers a giggle! I feel for you though. My daughter’s head engaged at 32 weeks, she tended to lie with arms and legs outstretched in-utero and was induced at 41 and a half weeks – yep, you do the maths on how many “Wow, you’re huge,” “Not long now”s and “Really, only the one…”
