The title says it all! Still no baby.
I must say it is quite fun to go out in public and freak people out, though. Well, not really freak them out, but watch their reactions when I answer their baby-related questions. Almost everyone wants to know when I am due.
Yesterday, I had a conversation with a lady at the dentist’s office that went something like this:
Lady: “When are you due?”
Lady: (Wide-eyed) “Oh, are you scheduled to be induced then?”
Lady: (Looking even more concerned and wide eyed now) “How many babies are you having?”
Me: (Pointing to Eva) “Well, I had her and now I’m having this one.”
Lady: “Looks like you could pop at any moment!”
She then proceeded to ask if it was a boy or a girl and the name and if Eva is excited, etc. All the normal chatter that complete strangers really have no business initiating but can’t seem to resist.
I know, I know, I should graciously accept such things, but I have a hard time with strangers inquiring about my unborn child. If there is more than a passing comment or the typical “how much longer” question, I tend to get protective. If the conversation then gets directed to Eva to ask her all about how she “feels” about having a new baby, I get even more annoyed with the conversation.
Yesterday, I wanted to tell this woman to quit asking questions and mind her own business. I also wanted to tell Eva that it is ok to not be excited, that there are a million other emotions in the world she can be feeling about suddenly having a baby in the house. But I didn’t.
So, I am continuing to wait patiently for this baby of mine to make his appearance. I’m losing patience with people, but not so much with waiting.
