My Friends Pregnant Wife * (a woman’s husband finds her
unattractive when she’s pregnant but a good friend of
his thinks entirely differently.)
Rachael struggled to get up off the couch.
“Let me get that for you,” Jason said as he jumped up
“Don’t be silly,” Rachael laughed. “Just because I’m
pregnant doesn’t mean I’m an invalid.”
“I know,” Jason offered. “It’s just that… well, I
want some too and I know where the cups are. I can get
both of us some.”
“Your so nice Jason,” she smiled as she sat back down.
“Your so different from Dave. He thinks I should do
TWICE as much since I got pregnant.”
Jason winced visibly. He hated the way Dave treated
his wife sometimes. He could see it clearly: Dave would
expect her to carry the laundry downstairs and cook
dinner, wash dishes, etc. He was a true pig even if
they were best friends.
After pouring the two waters, Jason entered the living-
room. Rachael sat in the chair, legs parted, her swol-
len belly extended and she was beautiful. Jason handed
her the glass.
“What?” Rachael asked.
“What do you mean what?” Jason snapped out of it.
“You were staring at me,” Rachael told him. “You’re
thinking of how fat I am.”
“No!” Jason snapped quickly as he sat on the couch.
“Not at all! Actually I was noticing how beautiful you
“Oh ya, right,” Rachael smiled. “I bet.”
“Honestly,” Jason stammered as he took a sip of water.
“You look great.”
“Sure,” she frowned. “That’s not what Dave thinks. He
says I’m fat.”
“Oh don’t listen to Dave,” he said. “I’m sure he
doesn’t mean it.”
“Oh yes he does. He even gets mad at me sometimes for
being pregnant. He always asks me how long it will be
till I look good again.”
Jason scowled, “Sometimes Dave can be such an asshole!
He doesn’t know what a good thing he has with you.”
“Thank’s,” Rachael smiled. “When I have this baby and
get skinny again everything will be back to normal.”
“Well, I think your beautiful now,” Jason told her.
“No matter what Dave says.”
“You mean it?” Rachael asked. “You honestly think I
still look pretty?”
“Maybe even more pretty then ever,” he told her.
“You’re extremely attractive.”
“I wish Dave thought that.”
“He probably does, he just has a hard time showing his
“You’ve got that right,” Rachael laughed. “Still, my
sex life has gone to shit since I started to show.”
“Well, isn’t it dangerous to have sex when your preg-
nant anyway?” Jason blushed.
“No, only if your really rough. There are ways to do
it safely. Dave just doesn’t have any desire now that
“That’s stupid,” Jason argued. “If I were him I’d pro-
bably want it more.”
“Why?” Rachael asked.
Jason blushed and sipped his water, “I guess that’s
kind of personal. I don’t know. I guess I just think
pregnant women are really sexy.”
“You get turned on by a fat belly?” Rachael laughed.
“Well, when it’s because of a child, ya, I guess I do.”
“Are you turned on by my belly?” she asked.
Jason choked on his water and sat it down. “WHOA!!” he
blurted. “That was a straight forward question.
“So give me a straight forward answer.”
“I don’t think I should,” Jason offered.
“You can tell me,” she said. “You know I’d never tell
Dave. You know me better than that.”
“Ok,” Jason breathed. “Yes.”
“You ARE turned on by my fat belly?” Rachael had to
“Yes,” he stated flately. “Yes I am.”
“If I were your wife, would you want to make love to
“Hold on, Rachael!” Jason sat forward. “I don’t think
my answering these questions would be healthy for our
“Who knows?” Rachael smiled. “Maybe it will make our
relationship stronger. So, do you want to make love to
