Top: Pink Blush,
So, I’ve noticed that when you’re pregnant funny things happen or are said. It’s a mixture of things really. Random strangers will come up to you and say things, or they’ll give you advice. Your family might sometimes look at you funny, and your kids, your kids will be the most honest ones ever! You could say that I’m speaking from experience here. I thought it would be fun to document these moments so that I can remember them and look back on them later, and to share so every other pregnant woman knows she isn’t alone.
This morning I was eating a donut and standing at the counter, Hazel was sitting on the couch and she looked over at me with this silly face. She was staring for a bit and then finally said: “Let me see you.” So she walked over to me, looked up, eyes wide, smiling big she said: “Your belly is getting really BIIIG!” It was one of those hilarious moments really, her facial expressions were perfect for it all.
I usually use the drive through window at the library but didn’t make it in time before they closed, so I had to go inside. I didn’t have Hazel with me and I was on my own. I walked up to the counter -with my diaper bag in front of my belly- and asked the lady if she could by chance get me my book from the drive-through window. She looked at me and said: “You can’t make it before six o’clock??” Back to her I laughingly said: “Ooh I didn’t know it closed at six.” And she huffed off to get the book. When she came back I had moved my diaper bag so now my belly was plain as day. She looked at me, smiled, gave me my receipt, and said: “Have a nice day!” Sometimes I think we all need bellies.
At the dollar tree last week Hazel was helping me put our items on the conveyer belt. The cashier smiled and said: “When is your next helper due?” I answered and she said: “How far apart in age will they be?” I answered: “Three.” She said “Well, mine were two years, ten months, and two days apart and it was the best thing. They loved each other, they hated each other... ” And she went on and on about her kids and how they live together and all that. It’s funny how people get started talking about themselves when it’s something they like talking about.
I wore a rather tight dress to family dinner a few weeks ago so my belly looked super big, and a member of my family commented and said something like: “When are you due?!” Then they started counting the months on their fingers and just started laughing. For some reason when a close family member like that says something, it doesn’t hurt my pride it just makes me laugh hysterically.
