here’s the average conversation between me and someone else:
other person: wow! you’ve really popped!!
lee lee: yep.
other person: how far along are you/when are you due???
lee lee: november 5th.
other person: oh, that’s not THAT far away…
lee lee: it’s far enough!
other person: well, you look really GOOD…
lee lee: [silence] [stunned/slightly grateful smile]
my big question is: what would these people say if i didn’t look good???
and, what does “looking good” really mean? is it because i’m still wearing clothes instead of mumu’s? or because i still bathe on a regular basis? do most pregnant women not look good at this point in their pregnancy? or, is the other person just amazed that a weakling such as myself is still living and breathing with an additional 19 pounds concentrated in my middlins?
i don’t know and i guess it [ultimately] doesn’t matter. strange as it is to have other people invested in the state of my external affairs, i’ve never received so many compliments on the way i look before and i probably never will again. i really wouldn’t complain about this…but i don’t have any other complaints right now!!! i guess pregnancy feels good on me, too…
