Just for Fun...
Having never carried a baby this long, I'm discovering what all the complaints are truly about. I remember someone saying when I delivered at 35 and 1, "Man, you got to miss the whole last miserable month!" So, I've now joined the world of stretch marks, swollen ankles, and a closet full of 'maternity' clothes I've outgrown. It also appears he's going to be quite large- although I'm hoping to avoid the ranks of those with horror L & D stories ;o)
So... just for fun... I'm curious to hear the worst thing someone said to you/about you when you were 'great with child.' Yesterday, Nathan took me to a nice restaurant. Our dear friend, Joyce Sagely, took Kathryn overnight to give us a break from what seems to be anxiety-induced insomnia (she comes looking for me 5, 6, 7 times a night- ugh!) So, anyways, upon entering the restaurant, the nicest-looking hostess says loudly to me in disbelief, "So, what'd you do? Swallow a watermelon?!" It made me laugh (lucky for her). So, any anecdotes of your own? Laughs are the best medicine.
Oh, yes. Miscellaneous Tidbit. Of course I don't agree with this quote, but it brought a smile: "Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. Then when you do, you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes!"
