Good news is I don't have the virus.

Bad news is I am pregnant!  :*

    When I had my first jab they asked if I was pregnant? I said no just over weight !
    Be extra nice to new members.

    @Geoark Ah, it's good to make light of hard situations sometimes, isn't it?  This doesn't mean any ill-intent to those affected by covid-19 as we all understand how horrendous the last year's been, but humour is a good coping mechanism to get us through <3

    BTW, I might see you at antenatal class?  :D and @woodbine - Ha, you have no idea how many times I've been asked when I was due because of a bloated stomach!  Cue the awkwardness when I reveal it's just bloat or I had pizza the previous night  :D

    Thanks @Sandy_123, to be fair I did ask exactly the same question I asked when I found out my wife was pregnant.

    How did that happen?

    @woodbine I just tell people I'm having quads. Still not sure what babies have to do with quads though  :D

    @Cher_Scope, absolutely  no ill intent for those who have suffered or are suffering from Covid. I have lost two family members to it in the last year. It just struck me when I was watching the test on TV that the result stick looks a lot like the pregnancy tester.

    I do agree though being able to laugh at things is important, especially during dark times. I've been sitting on that one for a while, with things opening up, and life slowly returning to some sense of normality it seemed like a good time to share ;)
