Because of my pregnancy, I was very much the center of attention at the New Year’s party. There were about a hundred people there, most of whom I know from my high school days.
Practically everyone there had heard that I was expecting, but most people hadn’t met me in person. So everyone kept glancing at my tummy and I got many questions about how I felt, when the big date is, is it a boy or girl. Almost always when I tell people that I’m expecting in about six weeks, they respond with disbelief. Looking at some photos from the party, I can’t really blame them.
