Walt Whitman once wrote, "I am large, I contain multitudes."
That is the perfect pregnancy metaphor. Although by some standards my 6-month belly is of a normal size, by others it is...very large.
When sweet and friendly folks ask, "How much longer to go?" (expecting a short answer), their facial reaction to "three months" is a thinly veiled "Oh shit."
Codeword: "Your poor pelvis."
