Clear Blue Water by Karen Montague-Reyes for October 24, 2004
Women: You're huge! 3 more months?! You look like you're about ready to pop! Don't lift your hand above your head!! You'll tangle the umbilical cords! My friend's aunt lost twins that way!! Twins? Looks more like triplets to me. Those are going to be huge babies! I wouldn't want to birth those giants! Tsk, tsk. Better lay off the sweets! All that extra blubber will be hard to lose! You're 4th and 5th kids?! I'd kill myself. You Catholic? Did you use fertility drugs or are they natural? Why aren't they moving? I wanted to feel them kick! You sure they're not dead? Man: My God...look at you! Manny: Hey, honey. How'd the baby shopping go? Get anything good? Eve: Sob! Manny: Pregnant women are soooo moody. Friend: Tell me about it.
