I don't have to love your future baby. I don't have to look adoringly at your stomach and admiringly into your eyes at the wonder of pending motherhood and share a tacit moment of understanding because we're both women who have this marvelous gift of being able to bring life into this world. I can look at your stomach and wish you'd chosen a different shirt, so I didn't have to see your distended bellybutton, which looks like the little thing that pops out of a turkey to let the cook know it's time to remove it from the oven.
