Remember when your high school boyfriend dumped you? For weeks afterwards, you thought you saw him or his car everywhere. It’s the same with pregnant women. As soon as you start thinking about pregnancy, they seem to just appear before you.
But when you’re having trouble conceiving, these pregnant women seem to purposely walk by you. You can no longer go anywhere without being forced to see several pregnant women and baby strollers everywhere. It’s like they knew you were coming and called up all their pregnant friends. When you see these ladies, a familiar ache forms somewhere between your chest and your upper abdomen. It feels like your heart is actually aching and your inner voice will think ‘Am I EVER going to get pregnant?’ It sometimes feels like your entire neighborhood is more fertile than your garden. Fertility specialists claim that thousands of women have trouble conceiving, so why then is your entire city pregnant?
For those of you who go to the gym (and I know some of you don’t), never workout during the pregnancy fit classes. Every woman walking by you will be pregnant, and you will not feel better about yourself after your workout. You might as well just get a burger and fries now. But you can pretty much guarantee, there will be at least one pregnant belly in that burger joint.
Make that an extra large fries, please.
