Hi there everyone,
I have to say, I had an interesting week last week. Not anything overly exciting happened but while I was at work, I had a couple of people say something about my baby bump.
I was working away, minding my own business, when this lady walked past me and she asked if I wanted a 6 month old to “trial”. I didn’t even say anything to her. She just noticed. Then she asked when i was due and what not and so I told her and she was like good luck etc. It really got me thinking about how much I was showing so I asked one of my co-workers if I had all of a sudden popped out in the last week and she said yes, I had. Which I found quite bizarre. I suppose I look at my bump everyday so I don’t notice much of a difference but apparently everyone else can. It’s truly bizarre to me to think that strangers notice these things. I didn’t realize how much people notice until it actually started to happen to me. How strange life can seem sometimes.
And the other thing that happened while I was at work, on the same day, was a lady came up to me and she asked me where the non-alcoholic champagne type drinks were. I noticed she was quite a bit further along then I was but nonetheless, I showed her where they were. When we got there she said to me….”I knew you would know where they were, we’re the same.” I looked at her for a second and I thought, “What the?” For starters, we may be pregnant but we are defiantly not the same and 2. I don’t drink alcohol, even before I was pregnant. She just made the assumption that I would drink champagne and so I would know where the alternative was. It caught me off guard but totally made my day (it was so bizarre it was quite funny I thought lol)
Anyway, I just thought that I would share those experiences with you all as I found them quite thought provoking….
Hope your all having a great day and I will talk to you all soon.
