Some lady who I don’t know well, looked at me in the elevator of our building while I was wearing my down full-length coat and said “Sooooo…. how far along are you?” I was a little taken aback. I mean. I have been wearing maternity pants since week 8, but I did not think I actually look pregnant. But my coat, when there is stuff in the pockets, kinda does make me look pregnant. I said, “Well, I am pregnant, but not very much. Only 11 weeks. I think this coat makes me look big.” And the stranger replied, “Well, you’re usually just so slender, I could just tell.” “Oh. Thanks.”
The next morning as I was taking EVERYTHING out of my coat pockets, Gwen stopped by (she’s a little like Kramer on Seinfeld, but not as strange.) I told her what the lady said on the elevator and I said, “I think the coat makes me look pregnant.” To which she replied, “You ARE pregnant.” Right. There is that.
