A couple of summers ago I worked for a riding campaign team working on election readiness for the last federal election (yes we start preparing almost as soon as the previous election is done). I worked very closely with a several people including one man who, I ended up learning, had conceived his child through IVF. He was always very positive and supportive, and had gone to the same clinic and doctor that we were seeing.

After not seeing this man for at least a year and a half, I ran into him in the grocery store about a week ago. We didn't have much time to chat, as we were blocking the aisle, but it was nice to see him.

It turns out he sits on the executive with my mother and was talking to her the other night. He completely shocked her by mentioning that I was blossoming, and that he knew Dr. C very well. She had no idea we talked about this, but also, he is the first person to come out and say he has noticed I'm pregnant! Kinda neat.

I'm sure it will happen more often now, I've completely abandoned the bigger clothes for mat wear. I've only gained 5lbs (at 15w4d I think that's pretty good) but man have I redistributed!
