My gynae was really happy during my last visit announcing that I am now in my 28th week. I thought he must be indicating that the 28 week mark was some sort of achievement in the baby's development. Maybe from this point onwards the baby is almost perfect and will be able to survive on his own.
So, happy I was, eating up his "encouraging" words, asking my "insignificant" questions and going through all the regular press-and-prods.
(Words in inverted commas indicate my own feeling and not really the matter of fact)
Left the clinic and went on my way.
When, lo and behold, I suddenly realised....it is my 28th week and the smile was because from now onwards he would be earning double from me what he had always earned before !
Wonder how broadly he would smile in my 36th week ??!!
