Proof positive

Right before vacation....that is, right before I became so visibly pregnant that now even strangers are asking me how far along I am, three separate events occurred that were rather telling. At least, I thought they were rather telling....I will share them with you, and let you make up your own opinions.

Event #1:

I walked into the office of a colleague and she greeted me and then glanced at my belly. "Wow!" she exclaimed, "You are really showing now!" To which I replied, "Yeah, I haven't actually gained all that much weight but it all seems to be settling right in my belly." And then she asked, "How much weight have you gained anyway?"

Event #2:

My students had been telling me that they didn't think I looked very pregnant, in fact, they thought I looked rather skinny. Until A. A took one look at me one day and said "Mrs. S, your belly is really big!"

Event #3:

A colleague of mine approached me to tell me a story....apparently another teacher had asked her how far along I was and she had said a little over three months. Apparently that teacher didn't believe her....she was convinced I was further along than that based on my belly.

(For those of you that have seen me recently, keep in mind all of this happened BEFORE Christmas break....before I truly "popped".)

Your thoughts on these events?

I think, based on the all too brief hours I got to spend with you a bit ago, that you look utterly perfect...and will continue to look that way.

I'm so glad you left a comment saying the appointment had been rescheduled. I've been checking this here blog like mad all week wondering what the news was!
