While I am basically "outed" for this pregnancy, there is a still a group I try to hide it from. My neighbors. I don't know exactly why this is, except that in other cases, like work and the general public, I had no choice. I couldn't hide it forever. With my neighbors, well, it is easy enough to quickly walk to the car, with my purse or other items held in front of me if they happen to be outside.
Is it working? I have no idea. Perhaps a few have noticed, but because I have also avoided any actual conversation besides calling out hello as I continue to walk, I wouldn't know. I don't want to chit chat about baby girl with them. Or hear about how "happy" they are for me. Or answer again "Well, is everything okay?" (which, by the way, is the #1 question I get asked these days. Yes, it is okay, but it was all okay with M too.)
Seeing as we live in an apartment with a shared laundry room, Mr. G has been doing a lot of the laundry lately.
