“We” Are Having A Baby

 By: Brady Evans

We are having a baby.  I don’t mean my husband and I are having a baby.  I don’t even mean my family is having a baby.

I say “We are having a baby” because all of the sudden, when you’re pregnant and your belly is prominent, society embraces you.  All of a sudden, the baby belongs to all of us.  Hugs from strangers.  Smiles for no reason.  Seats being given up in waiting rooms.  Everyone comes together to take care of this baby inside this person that is completely unknown to them.

To be honest, I find it hard to handle.  I’m not someone who loves attention.  And I really like to do everything myself, on my own, with no one’s help.  But this pregnancy has taken both those characteristics of mine away from me.  Whether I like it or not, apparently this baby belongs to all of us.  And whether I like it or not, boxes will be whisked out my hands before I can utter “really, it is very light.”

So, readers, our baby is due in about 9 weeks.
