The Power

I've recently discovered one small compensation that makes up for the general unpleasantness that comes with pregnancy - the power to part crowds like Moses parting the Red Sea.

Crowded street festival? Commuter nightmare at Central station? I just flash that big round belly of mine out from behind my bag like a loaded weapon and pushy pedestrians beat a wide path around my person. Younger men in particular react the fastest and hotfoot it right out of my way. Do they they think that even a slight brush against my belly will send me into an early labour and they might have to help deliver the baby? Or do they think what I've got is contagious?
