A change in perception

This week, my coworkers at the office simultaneously realized that I'm going to be having a baby.

Sure, this isn't exactly news. As far as they're concerned, I've always been pregnant. As I only moved up to the main office a few months ago, most of them didn't even meet me when I wasn't pregnant (or if they did, it was briefly and long ago). Still, all of the sudden, it seems to have sunk in. I'm not just having a baby, I'm having a baby. Very soon.

I wound up having the following conversation several times this week.

"So, when are you due again?"
"October 1st."
"[some sort of exclamation] That's really soon."
"So, she could pretty much come any time now."
"Yup. She'll be full term next week."
