Blues on the Redline

I am having a baby in about six weeks. There is no mistaking this jutting mass in front of me for anything but the pregnancy that it is. I am wearing ugly pants with a dark blue cut-out that is supposed to cover my giant belly. (But it usually folds itself down just below it). These are clearly maternity pants. There is no more mistaking me for a merely plus-sized woman.

And even though I ride the T every evening, only ONCE has somebody offered me a seat. I need a button that says "Yes, I AM pregnant. And I WOULD like to SIT DOWN!" I have somebody kicking my bladder from inside. I am subject to light-headedness and my balance is CRAP. Why, won't people in my usually wonderful hometown get their lazy butts out of their seats.

My pregnant friends have told me that people pretend not to notice the giant pregnant woman standing in front of them. What's wrong here??

It seems some good old fashioned manners have gone out the window with regard to pregnant women and many other things!
