antecdotal observation

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

now that people know i’m pregnant, people love to share their stories with me. (people who have been pregnant, of course.) some of them are funny, some of them are scary, some of them are encouraging, and some of them are a little gross. not that i mind—getting this kind of information is good for me, i think. i’d like to believe it will help me make decisions later, cope with the strangeness that is pregnancy, and generally let me know that i’m not alone in things i’m going through.

so far, i’ve appreciated peoples’ willingness to be open about their experiences, even with some of the more embarrassing ones. our bodies are interesting, indeed, and apparently childbirth is just this amazing window into just how crazy life really is … and how much of a sense of humor God has.
