But my favorite unexpected moments come when you break the news that you're knocked up to friends, family, and colleagues. Here is just a sampling of my favorite reactions to the big news, collected from both my pregnancies:
- Are you sure Chris is the father? (asked by one of my husband's female colleagues at a Christmas party...fabulous)
- Will you breastfeed? (asked by a male coworker during my first pregnancy, while standing with a group of people at a lunch function)
- Oh, thank God, I was afraid you'd never give that poor kid a sibling.
- It better be a girl this time!
