to think I am going to have to change my identity and leave the country because of this...

Am 38+3, and booked for an elective CS the day after tomorrow due to major placenta praevia. Am somewhat anxious, suffering from pregnancy brain, melting in the heat and all-round a bit out of touch with reality.

Spent the morning so far lying in bed, in a tshirt which now covers not much more than my boobs, under the fan.

The doorbell rang, and, without even thinking, I got up out of bed, went downstairs and answered it. It was the Ocado man. I stood there, in just the tshirt, my hairy fanjo on display (for clarity, one of the items in my order is VEET) to the entire neighbourhood without even realising.

To his credit, Ocadoman did not bat an eyelid, although he certainly wasn't in the mood for chatting and was in and out of the house very quickly!

I only realised once I had shut the door.

And now I am mortified. AIBU to think the only practical solution to this is to get immediate facial reconstructive surgery, assume a false identity and leave the country forever? What ON EARTH must that man be thinking?

[grin} at Verity

I once opend the door to a member of the Conservative Shadow Cabinet and my son pulled my tee-shirt up over my head. Of course I had no bra on. And I wasn't even pregnant.

Give it three or four years and you will start to find it funny.

< splutter >

I think it would be funnier to just act completely normal and be fully dressed next time - he will think he imagined it grin

Am trying not to laugh, but omg! That is just TOO funny! I can't believe the Ocado man managed to keep a straight face!!

Hee hee!!

(sorry, I realise that doesn't help your embarrasment much...)

He probably couldn't see much beyond your enormous bump. This is one time when the bigger the bump the better!

Disenchanted3 Tue 30-Jun-09 11:44:08

how did you not realise?? Didn't you feel the breeze on your fluffy bits???

At least it was Ocado, they have very polite delivery drivers, I have found.

I was mortified when I answered the door mid-breastfeed with one breast out to the Postman.
We moved house within the year though.

OMG I have actual tears rolling down my cheeks Verity grin

I bet he got back to his van in a state of shock and disbelief....and then texted all his mates and fellow drivers to tell them.

Have you considered changing your internet shop to Tesco or Sainsburys? wink

Rindercella Tue 30-Jun-09 11:46:06

ROFL grin

Poor you though - must've been mortifying.

Sybil speaks the truth - I am sure he saw your bump & that is all.

Best of luck for Thursday! smile

lol sorry

Flower3545 Tue 30-Jun-09 11:47:03

facial reconstruction won't be much help, he could probably pick your fanjo out of a line up better than he could your facegrinwink

pookamoo Tue 30-Jun-09 11:47:36

Oh blush
Poor you!

Seriously though I don't envy anybody pg in this heat.

You cannot be blamed for your nudity! grin

omg - that has actually made me cry with laughter grin

MaryBS Tue 30-Jun-09 11:49:40

PMSL, you'll be the talk of the home shopping circuit now! Either they'll refuse to deliver, or will be queuing up to see you!

(sorry, shouldn't laugh but WOW!)

hmc Tue 30-Jun-09 11:51:11

Well I don't think you can order from Ocado again!

Sainsburys next time...

NorbertDentressangle Tue 30-Jun-09 11:51:54

Maybe you'll find a pack of big pants in your next delivery (courtesy of the delivery man who will have a whip-round at the depot when he gets back and tells everyone grin)

stillstanding Tue 30-Jun-09 11:52:09

ROFL, Verity! I can say that i have never seen the same ocado man twice so I am sure it will all be fine. Just think how much worse it could have been if it was a mate/neighbour who you would have had to see again regularly?!!

VerityClinch Tue 30-Jun-09 11:52:47

Ah, well I shall be disguising the fanjo later thanks to the VEET delivery.

Honestly, I don't know what has happened to my brain this week. I mean, I've left the hob on twice and tried to put the kettle in the fridge yesterday, but this takes things to a whole new level...

And people tell me it only gets worse after the baby's born, but HOW CAN IT? HOW CAN IT GET WORSE THAN THIS?

I am blushing just thinking about it - and that only makes me more hot and bothered than I was before.

Oh Verity, sorry but grin

I have just spat water all over my screen

Am now getting very funny looks from colleagues grin

VerityClinch Tue 30-Jun-09 11:56:04

Disenchanted3 - couldn't bend over and pick anything up if I wanted to! Hence making Ocadoman carry the bags all the way through the house to the kitchen...
