Adventures in Pregnancy
Yes, the rumors are true, my wife is pregnant. She is actually 33 weeks today. Yes, we know what we are having. It’s a Girl! Yes, we already have a name picked out. These are just some of the questions thrown at the soon to be parents and everyone has their own opinion on if we should know what sex it is before she is born or if we should have a name picked out already. Enough already!
“You won’t be sleeping much!” “Oh, your first one is always early.” “Oh, your first one is always late.” “If you are carrying high, it’s a girl” Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. As a guy you can only stand about five minutes of these types of conversations before you start losing your mind. I find it rather funny in fact to play off of some of these little clichés. This usually helps me pass the time of being stuck in some maternity store in the city while some salesperson tries to tell my wife that the bra she is currently wearing will cut-off the milk production in her breasts. Even more information I really don’t need to know.
The bottom line is, when you see that poor guy walking with his hormone filed pregnant wife and you have a comment about what you know about having a baby, just keep it inside. Treat it like a secret cookie of knowledge that only you have and spare that poor guy from the onslaught of things that he has probably already heard.
