I sometimes forget the attention you draw when you are obviously pregnant (as opposed to the before-pregnancy-waddle). Today at Costco, while walking through the produce section, I had a sudden stabbing pain. Now, don't worry, I was sure I wasn't going in to labor. BUT, when you are caught off guard by intense, uncomfortable pain during pregnancy you can't help but display a painful expression -- which is exactly what happened, accompanied by closing eyes, gripping stomach, and waiting for pain to pass. Ready to resume my shopping, I selected a bunch of bananas and glanced over my shoulder as I placed them in the cart. Watching me intently was a young couple I noticed walking towards me before the pain hit. It struck me as funny since they looked ready and willing to call 911 at any moment. I suppose before you have children any pregnant woman displaying pain is cause for immediate action. It is good to know there are people out there ready to help a stranger in need, but lets hope that doesn't happen for another good two or three months!
