Pregnant Bellies and Wedding Rings

Hello to all - here is a quick update. There is now absolutely no doubt that I am pregnant. I have quite a belly going on (the picture below is at 5 months pregnant exactly). I'm just writing to share something funny with you.

Every week, my "class" goes on a field trip to the pool on base. During this time, the counselors are unrecognizable as counselors - we all have bathing suits on and could very well be the parents of the rowdy kids we keep reprimanding. It is also important to note that the kids in our program come from every racial background imaginable.

So to the story: I forgot to put on my wedding ring on Swimming Day. I did not realize this until it happened to me, but people's eyes, without fail, travel in a direct line from a pregnant belly to the ring finger. Can we see where this is headed? Here I am, pregnant and sans wedding ring, yelling at eight children of different races as though I am their mother. Needless to say, the looks I got ranged from rude to downright shocked. Mostly, I was amused. Mostly.

Stay tuned - we find out if we're having a boy or a girl on July 28th!

  1. That is funny. I always get dirty looks too even with my ring on. The most annoying thing is when doctors talk to everyone but me. You look cute by the way.
