I had such an embarrassing afternoon.
I'm soon to be in my 8th month of pregnancy. DS, 3.5, has come down with a nasty-sounding cough. No fever, no other symptoms, just runny nose + horrible dry cough.
Tomorrow we're leaving to go to family for Thanksgiving, and I need to bake an apple-rum cake today, except we have no rum.
So I take poor DS, hacking and coughing and occasionally sneezing to the grocery store. In my cart I have fresh ravioli, orange juice and a big ole bottle of rum.
Despite the fact that I pick a normally quiet moment of the day to go, the line takes FORFREAKINGEVER. DS hacks away. The woman in front of me looks at DS, looks at me, looks in my cart, and whispers something to her daughter. More waiting. More coughing. A store employee comes over and gives DS a stuffed animal (!!!) presumably because she feels sorry for him, being sick and with a pregnant lush for a mom. I think it was the longest 10 minutes of my life.
Fun times, fun times. Thanks to Swine Flu madness, I am getting the nastiest looks of my entire life while out in public with poor DS!
I had a similar experience. I was 7 months pregnant with my second child, and we were having a party the next day. So I was at Wegmans in their liquor store after doing grocery shopping. I had my 2 year old with me, my big belly, and my dh. So we're picking out wine and liquor, and suddenly ds needs to use the bathroom. So dh takes him. As I'm getting to check out, dh comes back and says, "Geeze lady! I told you you need to cut down when you're pregnant. Oh yeah, your cigarettes are in the car." I got laughing so hard that I peed my pants a little and couldn't talk to explain to the chashier that that was my dh and he was just fooling around. Thankfully she caught on and started laughing too.
