yikes, so i'm sitting at my desk and a coworker comes to sit with me to chat about something. she's my mom's age and all of her kids are my age- and having tons of babies. then pg coworker #2 comes over to join in and all of a sudden the entire conversation is about babies/pg. her 20 week appt is friday..she gets to see the ultrasound and all the little hands/toes/whatevers- it makes it so much more real...she's feeling good but getting big and uncomfortable sitting down, blah blah blah....UGH. I literally had to excuse myself and climb in between them to get out of my office. Then had to stay away (from my own desk!) until they had cleared out.
I guess people just love to talk about pregnancy and babies but wow, this is such a sensitivity check to me -- someday, when it is my turn, I vow NOT to only ever talk about pregnancy and babies- I mean, seriously, apparently it is completely consuming.
