"I Can't Believe How Big Your Tummy Is!"
Yesterday I stopped by our pharmacy to pick up my prenatal vitamins. We have a new pharmacist and here is the conversation that took place:
Pharmacist: When is your baby due?
Pharmacist: January?! You look like you are due any day!
Me: Yeah, it's my second baby in 18 months.
Pharmacist: Yeah, well, I can't imaging how huge you are going to be by January.
Me: Ummmm . . . thanks for the refill.
I know that I am starting my seventh month looking like a blimp, but really?! Did she need to point out the obvious? HA!
The thing is . . . Gavin was so small that I really find comfort in the size of this little (or not so little) guy. Good thing I'm not vain about pregnancy size! That comment would have made me cry before . . . but now it's just a sign that we are growing! We want a healthy baby!
(Okay - I have to take back part of the vanity comment . . . I hate the way my face looks when I am pregnant! I look like the Stay Puffed Marshmallow Man. Oh, well, it is SO worth it!)
