1st baby, 2nd pregnancy
i can't focus on anything besides this baby--work, doctoral work, etc. all seem insignificant right now. the students at my school are super sweet to me, though. they all want to touch my belly (i'm cool with that). i answer probably a dozen pregnancy questions a day. i think it's good for them to understand the process, esp the girls b/c we have a high teen pregnancy rate at our school.
i feel like the princess at my school. the other day this big, very thug-y boy saw me coming down the crowded hall and yelled, "get the f&*^ outta the way! lady with baby coming!" and all the students in the hallway parted down the middle to let me through. it was truly biblical! i was like, "thanks, honey. watch your mouth--my baby can hear you now!" he was shocked at that
i'm really loving being pregnant. in nyc, everyone feels they have the right to talk to you suddenly which i find 90% endearing and 10% annoying
