I'm thinking of getting a t-shirt printed with the answers to the most commonly-asked questions about my pregnancy and the little guy. It might look like this:
I certainly don't mind the questions. I love talking about myself, after all. But I do get excited when somebody asks me a question I haven't heard before. Like my friend's husband Gav, who asked, "Do you feel the way you expected to at 6 months?"
Amongst the standard questions about due date, gender, movement and health, there's been:
"Should you be doing that?"
This one has popped up on several occasions, such as when I'm kneeling in front of a filing cabinet, drinking coffee and running at slightly-faster-than-walking pace. But my favourite F.A.Q. is:
"Look at you! Have you grown since yesterday?"
To which the only correct answer, based on what I know about cell division and the reproductive system, is, "Yes".
