I am so tired of having to lie to people and answering their questions about my pregnancy and the baby with a smile. It's only 1:45 PM and I've already have had to have more than 5 conversations with random people either at work or on the Metro about when my due date is, if it's a boy or a girl, and how excited I must be. It's frustrating and annoying. But what am I going to do, tell random people in an elevator that I'm due in 4 weeks, but my baby is sick and probably won't live, so no, I'm not that excited.
I made the mistake once and told the lady in the fax room that my baby was sick because she kept pressing me and pressing me for more answers and I was always faxing medical records request forms. She just looked at me like I had two heads, smiled, and didn't say another word.
Just one more reason why I just want to stay home and avoid people all together.
