You Da Russ, man, you da russ!!!

I think it's very strange that a womans body is very private until she becomes pregnant, and then all of a sudden nothing becomes sacred....
For example, ten months ago it would not be a common thing for a group of our friends sitting around, to discuss my wife's Uterus, and I thought "bloody show" meant going over to Craig's house to watch a 80's horror flick....
I mean can you imagine going up to a woman you hardly knew and asking her; "So how much weight have you gained?", "Can I touch your belly?" , or even worse, " Man do you ever look huge!!!"
I've even had people warn me that Amanda was going to somehow be transformed into a sailor and spew out obscenities in my direction in the course of labour....

well, i certainly wouldn't want people rubbing my non-pregnant belly, that's for sure!

Derek, that is so funny and true. People are the same way now as when I was pregnant with Amanda. No topic is off limit when you are pregnant. And I agree with Michelle, people you hardly know touch your pregnant belly without hesitation and sometimes without permission.

I just think it's wonderful that Amanda's uterus (and pregnant belly) can bring us all together like this!
