Awkward Conversations...

I have heard that sometimes experienced mothers have a tendency to tell first-time pregnant mothers about the horror stories about pregnancy and birth.  So far, this has not been my experience... thus far (knock on wood).

What has been my experience are several... awkward conversations.

One such conversation involved an experienced mother talking to me about the importance of preparing my peritoneum for birth... and the repercussions of not doing so.

Another such conversation involved a woman, who is not a mother, telling me that pregnant women usually don't "show" until 6 months of pregnancy, and so I must be having a really big baby because I'm showing so early (21 weeks).

So far, each of these conversations have made me laugh... but I'm hoping that conversations don't become more... um... awkward, uncomfortable, and descriptive as the pregnancy continues.

As I'm writing this, I feel our little jitterbug rolling around in my belly... it feels like he/she doesn't have enough space.  :-D

  1. Haha, pregnant women don't show until 6 months?! We must be doing something wrong :p
    I've noticed people getting realllly excited when they see my pregnant belly. I'm talking strangers, usually women. Their faces light up and they can't stop smiling at me. Still not sure how to handle that hihi :)


Thank you for stopping by and joining the conversation.
