Patience is a virtue

So I had my first real practice with being a rational pregnant woman yesterday.  I was working when an older man that im not fond of came in and got a togo order. Its normally not a problem I bring his food up and tell him to have a great day and walk away before much more can be said. Well I was not so lucky this time. He stopped me and asked me if I was pregnant because one of my lovely coworkers shared this information with him. I told him yes we were expecting and due in April.  I go to walk away and he stops me. He then asks if I think I will have problems.  A little confused by the invasive questioning I told him that the doctor told me that I would have an easy time popping a kid out. Again I try to walk away.  Then he stops me again and tells me that he feels it is unsafe for me to have a kid at my age and that I should be concerned for my safety and my baby. He continued to tell me that im too old to have a child and what a bad thing it is that I was pregnant.  I just stood there. In shock. Im freaking 26 years old and in the prime baby making age. How dare this man say anything to me about my pregnancy at all let alone my age and the safety of my baby. So you know what I did. I told him to have a great day and walked away.  So not only did I manage to keep my cool but I also managed not to say anything that would continue the awful conversation this man was forcing me to have. I say that's a win for being the nicest pregnant woman ever.
