Most people give you a year after you are married before they start asking when you plan to have children. I wondered how long it would take after the first child before the question popped up again.
Apparently it is 21 months.
I have had three people ask me in the past week if I am pregnant. Three. While I am not the most fit person in the world, I don't think it has anything to do with my appearance (at least I hope not).
Person No. 1 - A friend sent me a message telling me she had a feeling I was pregnant. I wouldn't think anything of it except that this same friend asked me if I was pregnant the day I went to the doctor's office to have it confirmed. I hadn't even told my family yet. I hadn't told anyone I was going to the doctor.
Person No. 2 - I pulled a co-worker aside this week and told her I had a secret. She got all excited and asked if it was going to make her scream. I didn't know what she was talking about at first. Then it hit me. "Did you think I was going to tell you I'm pregnant?" She nodded. I later decided not to wear a certain shirt. I bought it thinking that while it wasn't a maternity shirt, I could easily wear it when I do get pregnant. I will just save it for that time.
Person No. 3 - While talking to another co-worker, I mentioned Peanut's love of bossing the cat around. I said I can't imagine how she will be with a sibling. Her face lit up, she glanced down at my belly and excitedly asked, "Are you pregnant?"
Lordy, do you people know something I don't?
