One interesting thing to me about pregnancy is that any parent feels like they can talk to me about it. I'm sort of amazed at how the farther along in pregnancy I get, the more people feel comfortable talking to me, even if they don't really know my name. At least at work.
Most of the time, this is pretty awesome. I'm a social person who is slightly shy, so once conversation is initiated, I'm pretty happy. But this also backfires. There are people at work that I don't really like and I'd rather not talk to who now feel like it's open season to talk to me. And about semi-personal stuff too. I daily hear that I must be close and it's gotta be uncomfortable to be me now. Actually, I'm doing pretty well and I still have more than 5 weeks. I should be at work for the next 4. Plus, I'm giant, but I've seen way bigger people and I may still grow a ton. I'm not really complaining, more just commenting that people are funny.
Although I will say that I didn't get enough sleep last night and my first interaction with people today was with a group of people that I'd rather avoid at work. Someone looked at me and asked/informed me if/that I must be getting close now, and I just glared at him and told him that I'm not a morning person and to try that comment again later. The group of men just laughed and all said that they remember their wives at this stage. I'm not usually a bitch, and I think I've been really not-moody all things considered. I think women get cranky toward the end of pregnancy because people just say really odd things to them. Men in particular. They just look at me like "oh man, you're going to get so much worse." Pfft to you.
I suppose I have been warned of this. And I hear that it only gets more intense when you actually have a baby. From what I've been told, babies belong to the world and I need to be cool with that. I'm glad I'm a mostly laid back person. :)
In any case, I'm still doing well.
