(from ~second trimester - helps if you've seen Cronenberg's 1986 remake of The Fly)

Me: "You know, with all the physical changes I've been going through lately, I'm starting to feel like 'The Fly.'"
Crash: "Well, you are!"
Me: "What?! I am not the Fly!" Imagines Jeff Goldblum picking off pieces of his ear, vomiting on donuts, etc.
Crash: "Sure you are! blah blah carrying x percent foreign DNA, blah, blah, etc."
Me: "At least it's human DNA."

It gets weirder.

"Cells from a fetus are already known to persist in the mother's body for decades after the child is born (New Scientist, 24 February 2001, p 8). The cells can lodge in lymph nodes, liver, spleen or muscle, and may eventually form part of the mother's tissue."

I remember in the first couple of weeks after my son was born it occured to me "Hey, I can write my name in the snow, just like a six year old boy!"

Yes, I should have said "at least it's human DNA on my side."
