Once more into the breach

Once More into the Breach!, originally uploaded by Vic Tan

I'm facing a barrage of coworker expectations. Each morning that I show up at the office is one more day of saying, "no baby yet!" It's one more reason to keep the due date a secret when a rough estimate would suffice.

Not that I'm complaining, mind. It must be so much harder on a working pregnant woman when everyone knows that the deadline has passed.

Lucky for my wife, she works from home. Of course, she still gets the irritating comments from her well-intentioned-but-tactless colleagues on the phone. But on the bright side, it's a lot easier to cope with those people when they can't see you rolling your eyes.
