One of my students mentioned that his mom was pregnant a few weeks ago....Not my favorite subject to dwell on so I let it go.
She came in to volunteer a month or so ago and I could tell that she was sick with morning sickness...again, I'd rather avoid the topic so I didn't ask.
Today she came in again, and proceeded to talk about how sick she was. It was almost awkward if I didn't ask why. So she told me how indeed she was pregnant. I had to swallow my pride and ask all the questions. You know, how many weeks? Do you know what you're having? Etc etc.
Her due date you ask? March 25th. My exact due date for the last failed pregnancy. THE EXACT SAME DATE.
What the hell? Now I get to look at her every day when she gets bigger and bigger and think "that's exactly where I'd be".
Her 20 week ultrasound is Friday. That would have been me. Why did she have to have the exact same date? Ugh.
