On pregnancy: a quote

"For a man, the nine months of pregnancy pass pretty much like any other nine months of an adult's life; Tom can refer to 'when the baby arrives' as if it's not already here in the room with us, aiming lusty kicks into the depths of my stomach."

Bed Rest, by Sarah Bilston

[By the way, an excellent work of fiction I got from the library a few days ago. A really quick read, and engrossing even if you've never been and never plan to become pregnant.]
