I get to work this morning, and everyone is all in a tizzy.
It turns out that one of my coworkers is having a C-section as I am typing this.
She didn't know she was pregnant.
Yeah, she found out like 2 days ago. At 8 and a half months. How amazing is that? How do you miss something like that? I mean, what do you imagine that giant bulge in your tummy is? How can you just not notice your periods have totally stopped? Don't you feel tired or hungry? What about the morning sickness? Didn't the baby kick? No dizzyness or fainting? Nothing?
In her defense, she and her husband have had some majorly stressful financial things happening to them lately. She probably thought the lack of menstruation was just stress. (That has happened to me before, so I can understand that.) And...she's kind of a big girl, so I can see how she could have missed the tummy bulge.
But she's had 3 kids already. You'd think she'd be a pro at diagnosing herself.
This is totally weird. We are all just jaw-dropping over here.
We are also scrambling around to find stuff for her. She just gave away all her baby stuff since her youngest is in kindergarten! We are thinking diapers, diapers, diapers. That is probably #1 on the "What do you get for a surprise baby?" list.
