I’ve already posted a funny video about FAQ most pregnant women face. Here are answers to the most frequently asked questions I currently get asked.

Are you excited? Sometimes. This is the most common question I get and it feels awkward to not just say yes, which is what people want to hear. I am very much looking forward to meeting and being a mother to my kid. Right now I’m more concerned with figuring out how I’m going to take care of the kid.

Was this planned? No.

Are you [and the dad] moving in together?/Are you getting married? No.

Is there anything you need? There are sooo many things I need but feel free to just offer me a cookie.

Do you get morning sickness? Why do we still call it that when we all know it’s not just in the morning? I spent the better part of 2 months feeling incredibly nauseous nearly all of the time but I never threw up.

How far along are you? Obviously, the answer to this question changes every day but I am due on November 1.

Will you breastfeed? I plan to but you know what they say about the best laid plans… I’ve heard stories from women who were unable to for a number of reasons so in general I’m trying to not set myself up for disappointment.

Will you find out the sex? Yes, as soon as I can. There are enough unknowns, I’ll take all of the information I can get.

Have you picked out names? Yes, I have a boy name and a girl name but it’s still entirely possible for dad and I to change our minds by the time the pipsqueak is born.

What’s it like being pregnant? It sucks. I want to get rich just so I can fund research the allow fetuses to be grown in artificial uteri so no one else has to go through this. (I’m kinda sorta kidding. But being pregnant is difficult.)
