That moment when you speak to someone and politely ask “How are you?” or “How’s it going?” and they say “Fine” and that’s it.
This morning I was on the elevator and This lady got on behind me. The elevator stopped and a gentleman got on that apparently knew the lady.
He politely and enthusiastically said, “Good morning, How are you?”

Pregnancy is such a fascinating time – I don’t care if it is your first or your fifth; each one has some differences and things that makes it special. For me, aside from the fact that I am having my second kid almost 10 years later, I feel like I have never been pregnant before – EVER!
