I think everyone knows that pregnancy is a bizarre period in life that seems to invite strangeness from all kinds of unexpected sources. What are some of the weirdest things you've heard so far?
1. With my first, I was still finishing my degree and had a pretty obvious bump for the fall semester (I was due in December). My perma-craving of that pregnancy was dairy, dairy, and more dairy, so I'd often walk around with an elementary school-esque half pint of milk or chocolate milk. An older woman, possibly faculty, said this to me when I was in an elevator:
Ball Defender: "You know, if it's a boy, that milk is absolutely going to shrink his testicles."
Me: "Oh, okay. Well."
2. My mom visited a week or so ago and had some good ones. I picked up a saucepan from a low cabinet and this exchange occurred:
Mom: "Should you really be doing that in your ... condition?"
Me: "Mom, I'm pregnant. It's cool. And lupus and diabetes are conditions."
3. I think #2 makes my mom sound a little old-fashioned, but she also says things like this:
Mom: "You have no chance of having a girl. Your husband only shoots boys."
Me: "Oh, gross, no."
