One of the other dispatchers that I work with is due to have her third child around the middle of May so she's a lot further along than I always think she is. I think part of the issue is that she doesn't wear typical maternity clothing because she's supposed to wear something as close to our regular uniform as possible. It's kind of tough because EMS pants just don't conform well to the big bellies of pregnant women! They don't exactly have elastic waistbands!
At any rate, Jen has been making due with a pair of navy blue stretch pants and an oversize blue turtleneck which is actually part of our uniform options. Add on to that the fact that she still wears her EMS boots and it's easy to see why I'm confused as to her degree of pregnancy! Before I know it I'm going to go into work one day and find out that Jen had the baby and is out on maternity leave while I'm still thinking she has months to go!
I really need to get with the program!
