There's a mad shadow on the wall and somehow a basket filled to the brim with shoes made it into these "fashion" pictures, but these days I'm just not being too picky about what the pictures of me wearing clothes look like. Oh, and ignore the heavy black leggings I'm wearing underneath my sheer, bright sundress. Students get to see way too much of my legs if I try to sport that dress otherwise. Pervs.
Someone somewhere decided that they were going to divide a pregnancy up into three stages. My guess is that person was a man. Trimesters just don't make sense. To start with, a pregnancy is 40 weeks and 40 weeks does not divide evenly into three. Around the world people are confused. When does the first trimester end? When does the third trimester begin? 26 weeks? No, 28! How about 26 and 2/3 weeks? (And how do you get 2/3 of a week... I mean, how many days is that?!?)
Yes. It was definitely a man who invented pregnancy trimesters. That, or the 14 year old boys that write the pregnancy websites.
I've done a little bit of thought. Pregnancy should really be divided up into quarters. 40 divides by 4 a heckuva lot easier than it does by 3, I'll tell you that much.
Quarter 1: Through 10 weeks: This is the "I can't get out of bed and I feel sick every single day" quarter. It's a real gem, quarter one.
Quarter 2: 11-20 weeks: This is also known as the "You look fat, but not pregnant stage." It's a very ambiguous time.
Quarter 3: 21-30 weeks: The "pregnancy is fun" stage! You look definitely pregnant! But still cute! You feel great. Your husband gives you lots of massages!
Quarter 4: 31-40 weeks: The miserable stage....?! I don't know. I've only heard rumors.
See? My system makes a lot more sense.
In other news, a student misspelled his own name on his paper today. It's May 7, 2014 and I am officially giving up for the rest of the year.
