- Having my recently hired twenty-something temp assistant say to me, "You don't look pregnant at all. How far along are you?" Me: "Oh....that's because I'm not pregnant. I'm having a baby via surrogate." Her: "Oh, wow! How long does she have to keep the baby after it's born? Y'know for breastfeeding and stuff." *sigh* I just didn't really feel like explaining it all at that moment. I wanted her to do her work.
- Yesterday N and I went to a family daycare to look into the possibility of putting her in daycare next June. (Yes, I said next June. And yes, I'm having to look now so that we can get on a....waiting list.) There was another couple there, and she was obviously pregnant. I was obviously not and wearing a close-fitting maxi skirt to prove it. She kind of gave me a strange look...or maybe I imagined it. Either way, I ended up blurting out that we were due in Dec via surrogate. #awesome
- Then last evening, we went out to a guy acquaintance's birthday party, and kept getting hugs and "OMG Congratulations!" Thankfully I'd changed into a baggy dress (partially so that I could avoid just those types of explanations that I knew would be needed with people I'm not super-close with in a public setting). Either way, I felt AWKWARD.

Feeling awkward is one of the big things that go along with being an intended mom (at least for me). Maybe other intended moms are made of steel, but I definitely feel awkward and uncomfortable in certain situations. Here are some of the ones that have caused me to feel weird recently.
