This is not a birth announcement post. Quite the opposite actually.
Let me repeat – I am NOT pregnant.
It’s just that my trip to Costco this weekend reminded me of a funny Parita and Vishnu conversation. A conversation that took place next to a display of prenatal vitamins during our last visit there.
First a little context setting. Our last pit stop was the vitamin/supplement section of the store. Vishnu and I split up to find our go to multivitamin. During my search, a display of prenatal vitamins grabbed my attention. This particular kind was for women looking to get pregnant in the next 12-18 months. I am clueless when it comes to pregnancy related things, so I picked up a bottle to show Vishnu. And here’s how that went…
Vishnu: I found our vitamins. Let’s go.
Parita: Look what I found. These are prenatal vitamins for women looking to have a baby in the next year to year and a half.
Vishnu: [With sheer panic on his face.] Ummm…ok.
Parita: [Pretty much talking to myself]. Hmm..I wonder if I should buy a bottle. I mean I know we’re not looking to have a baby anytime soon, but it couldn’t hurt, right?
Vishnu: [As he took the bottle out of my hands]. Let’s just stick to our usual vitamins, Par. You can look into these later.
Parita: True. And I should probably do a little research before I just buy something, right?
Vishnu: [Already walking toward the checkout lines.]
So, yeah. Not pregnant. Not even close.
But at least I know how to get my husband’s attention and keep it for all of 30 seconds!
Happy Monday, friends!

Hahahaha!!! Sounds like an exchange between my husband and I! I just recently bought my first prenatal vitamins. I am hoping for a baby soon, and my husband is finally on board but be is still totally clueless and terrified 🙂
Yay! That is fantastic news. 🙂 Good luck!
Hahaha doesn’t hurt to be prepared, right? 😉
Very true! Preparation is the key to success 🙂
Hilarious!! I know my multi-vitmatin has Folic acid and some other things that are found in prenatal vitamins, but that doesn’t freak REB out. He and I have discussed that we aren’t sure if kids are our thing or will ever be, but whenever he pulls the “We should have a baby card” and I respond with “Hmm ok. I’ll stop taking my pill tonight.” the look on his face is priceless 😉
Oh husbands, they are too funny sometimes! And REBs reaction pretty much matches our own. It’s fun to think about having a kid, but actually planning on having one is def. a different beast. We’ll get there!
😆 Poor Vishnu. I actually know some women who aren’t looking to get pregnant and take prenatal vitamins… Apparently they might help with hair, skin, and nails?
I’ve heard that. I may just have to do my research sooner than later. 😉
Hahah are you trying to tell us something..or at least Vishnu ;)? A little precaution can never hurt…even if it is way in advance!
Not at all! 🙂 My birth annoucement post will have a much catchier title!
hilarious – but pre-natal vitamins are great for hair, nails and wont hurt Par if you start taking them and also to freak Vishnu a little bit 😛
Haha! I may have to look into them now, to freak Vishnu out of course!
Haha! That’s great. Like others mentioned, it doesn’t hurt to take them! Plus, you can get a kick out of the looks he’ll give you on a daily basis 🙂
Very true – it doesn’t hurt! And boy, I can just imagine the looks I’ll get. 🙂
Men are so weird when it comes to babies, it is so funny. That is cool how it’s a pre-planning kind of vitamin. I will have to look into that (for fun).
You’re gonna have to take baby steps… I still don’t feel ready to have a kid… but it doesn’t hurt to look into the prenatal stuff to prepare your body if you want a kid.
Haha men! Happy Tuesday 😉
My hairdresser tells me they are great for hair growth. So I had bought them few years back … but then stopped ‘coz my hair grows fine naturally. May be you could get them for that reason if not a baby! (;
