I recall a thread about the negative things that people say to you when your pregnant but I thought it would be nice to have a thread where we share the positive encounters that we have during our pregnancies. I find that these days, being in my last month or so of pregnancy, I am having a lot of them.
One was this morning with the nurse who was giving us our flu shots. We were talking about the pregnancy and out of the blue she said "so are you going to have the baby at home or with a midwife?". I was floored. I said - why yes, we hope to! I've had the opposite question "so are you having a C-section?" or "what hospital will you go to" but never in a million years would I have expected someone to ask about home birth as the first question. Anyhow, it was such a nice change that I'd thought I'd share it.
I've also had a couple of really heartwarming exchanges with men in elevators who told me that they were also expecting a baby or one that said "I really miss my wife being pregnant".
Hope these brighten your days and I can't wait to hear more happy pregnancy stories.
