"Pregnancy is like being in an airplane:
A little bit boring but not entirely unpleasant, and at least you get to sit down a lot. But if you really stopped to think about what was really happening under the bland surface of the ride, sheer terror would immobilize you. Luckily you get by with a feeling of general anxiety mixed with excitement as to what this new destination has in store for you."
...from one of my many pregnancy-themed books: The Mask of Motherhood by Susan Maushart
