I had to share this photo that she just posted in her latest: "Swimming Upstream During Miami Swim Week." Here she is at eight months and three weeks, posed next to a poster of a swimsuit model. Could she get any more pregnant before she pops? Best of all was her comment "One of these things is not like the other."
Looking through my own photos of my three pregnancies some 30 years ago, I realized that there is exactly one photo of me being pregnant, and I'm holding a little sweater I knitted in front of my gut. Back in those days the point was to hide your growing stomach. Nowadays, thanks perhaps to Demi Moore, pregnant women like to flaunt it.
As I 've written before, modern pregnancy is far different from what it used to be in my day, but I really hope when Eleni's got through it to the other side, after getting her strength back from those first months of motherhood, she will collect all her hilarious and wise pregnancy posts into a book for our generation's amusement and edification.
