The nitty-gritty details about the changes happening with my body over these past couple weeks, I figured I'd just blog about it!
That way you'll all know and we won't have to go through the awkwardness of you asking and me feeling shy about telling you.
Here's the 411, the low-down, the way it is:
A lot of changes have to take place in a woman's body in order to have a baby, and my Doctor says everything is going just fine. How are you doing today?
Now you know that things are going just fine, and hopefully you figured out that I don't really want to broadcast the fine print to every person that I talk to.
And if you've not been through a pregnancy yet, or are going through your first one, take this as a gentle warning that you may very well get asked ALL KINDS of questions from people you normally wouldn't say any more than "hi" to. I had no idea how many people were concerned over the intimate details of my body. And I'd recommend to start thinking now how you're going to answer/handle/respond... because I'm figuring it out as I go. It's weird. Very weird. And awkward. And I never know (knew!) what to say so I always end up telling them what's really going on and then it's even more weird to know that Mrs. Jane Doe now knows what my c*rv*x was like last week at my Dr. appointment.
