Did You Know I'm Having A....


That is, according to the slew of people (including total strangers) who say so. Apparently, since this baby bump of mine is "all out in front" that means I am having a boy. The other day, I was standing in line at Who.le Food.s and I hear someone say, "Are you having a boy?" I had to look around to see where the question was coming from. Some nice meaning yet very smug woman who just came out of the other line with her groceries apparently really needed to know. "I don't know." I chirped as cheerfully as possible (to hide my mild annoyance). "Oh it's definitely a boy," she said, "it's like a little ball right in front."


Also, I know people are meaning to be nice when they say, (and they always do) when they hear I am 7 months pregnant, "Oh you are SO TINY!" Please, people, you don't realize you are speaking to an Infertile. Please don't give me another reason to freak out. Yes, I must look tiny. But, I started out tiny. I'm tall and what you might call 'willowy'. I'm downright narrow. So, yes the baby is all out in front (where else could it go?) and sure, I guess I might look tiny.

But don't get me wrong. It's not like I don't enjoy some of the pregnancy related attention. I'll admit it, I do. And a lady at the park the other day told me whatever I was doing 'I should write a book' because I 'look great.' That was a really, really nice thing to say. And one of the doctors at Dr. Wunnerful's office the other day said to me in the hallway (as I was waiting to set up my next appointment) 'That's a cute tummy you got there, Toots!' Even though that might sound kinda weird it was cute. Especially coming from a man who sees pregnant tummies all day long.

But there are only three people who truly know if my baby is a boy or a girl: The doctor that did my 20 week scan, her ultrasound tech, and Dr. Wunnerful.

Anyone wanna place bets? Will post pics of the bump later...
