"She's growing by the minute!"
Don't I know it!
"You're walking really fast for someone who is having a baby next month."
"Here's to hoping delivery will be fast too! ... Yeah, right."
"When do you go on maternity leave?"
"Whenever she decides to show up."
"You're hiding a basketball in your shirt, aren't you?"
"It's a volleyball, actually."
"If you have your baby in the office, I'll have to excuse myself. I'm just not ready for that. But I'll get one of the nurses to come help you!"
I appreciated her honesty!
"Ha! Wishful thinking. Every pregnant woman hopes she'll deliver earlier than 40 weeks."
My OB probably thought I asked about the likelihood of her showing up sooner than 40 weeks in hopes that she would be smaller at delivery, but I was actually thinking more about work.
"Thank you. (starts exiting office and then notices my belly when I stand up) And congratulations!"
"Oh, cute! Look at yoooou!"
You can't miss me with this bump!
"You're a whale!"
Well, that was fun.
"This will be you soon!"
Count on a Target-shopping, toddler-toting mom to gleefully welcome me to the Mom Club. :)
"And so it begins!"
My husband's response when I texted him with "Braxton Hicks contractions. Yaaaay."
