More Fetus Talk

I have come to decide that it's so much more fun to let "I'm pregnant" slip out naturally! I've had a lot more fun randomly surprising folks. Today during our client meeting we were all coming in and talking about how freaking windy it was outside. We have a small Asian pharmacist on our account named T. 

Client: Man T, you probably needed somebody to hold you to the ground out there. You could have blown away!
T: *takes of coat and reveal a new tummy* Nope, I have a bun in the oven to keep me down
Me: *walks in just as this is said* Guess what T, me too!
The Whole Room: Wooowwww! Both of you? Congrats.
*somebody walks in*
Client: you just missed a double pregnancy announcement!
Lady: *looks around at everybody. Can't figure out who because everybody is smiling at her*
Client: T and MrsC are having babies! When are y'all due?
Me: June
T: July!

Now everybody thinks we conspired together, especially since we got married within a month of each other. I knew she was trying to get pregnant, so it was super exciting to hear they were successful. 

Last Sunday at church one of the elders came up to me:
Elder L: Girllll, I done heard something 'bout you?
Me: *laughing* what did you hear?
Elder L: Something I should have heard from you. Why I gotta find out your business on the streets?
Me: *cracking up because Elder L is a clown*
Elder L: I'm just playing, it wasn't the streets. My son told me. I'm so excited for you! Even though y'all hiding it like it ain't legal.

All I could do was laugh. Especially when another elder saw me talking to my 8 months pregnant friend:
Elder: *to MrC* you know if your wife talks to a pregnant woman for more than 15 minutes, she'll end up pregnant
MrC: go tell her that
Elder: *to me* you know if you talk to her for more than 15 minutes, you'll end up pregnant
Me: Dag man, you should have told me that back in September!
Elder: You pregnant!?
Me: Yeahhh. You should have preached that sermon from the pulpit! I was wondering how this happened.

Because of that conversation, I have a friend that won't talk directly to me anymore. She has her husband call MrC when she wants to check on me and the baby. We had a 5 minute relayed conversation the other night because she wanted to see how I was feeling. I don't blame her because I'm convinced pregnancy is contagious. 

*If you're tired of reading about this fetus, too bad. I ain't got nothing else to talk about! All I do is eat and sleep. Check my twitter timeline, it's full of taking naps and eating random things. Maybe we'll get some house hunting in next week.*
