#42: A Friend Who Is Compassionate
This list gives us the impression that a disproportionate number of women discover they are pregnant by chance. This woman was there to lend her support, and the tides can flip more quickly than you would imagine! I’m pleased she went with a close friend, though, since everyone needs someone to hold their hand when they find out something like that – especially when they weren’t expecting it to happen.
That it was pregnant took two weeks of non-stop throwing up and my spouse eventually glancing at me and joking that I might be pregnant before I realized what was happening. He suffered through the first twelve weeks of morning sickness, while I suffered through the cankles. Oh my gosh, I remember gazing at him as if he were insane and then saying, “oh my god.” In any case, it’s a good thing she discovered the truth.
