After all, I hadn’t even told the majority of my friends and family during the early stage of my pregnancy.

Should I actually hit it off with someone well enough that they asked me out for a second date, I’d go, and if we hit the trifecta, I’d reveal the truth behind my hearty appetite and frequent trips to the restroom. So at eight weeks' pregnant, I started swiping.

Before we met, I prayed he wouldn’t be one of those dudes who asked leading questions, like if I had kids or wanted kids or liked them?

That would’ve been too confronting, and possibly too tempting for me to blurt out my little secret, but he didn’t ask and we said goodbye.

By the second date I went on—with a guy who used the F-bomb or worse in every sentence—it occurred to me that I was so passionate about punching some holes in my date card that I’d conveniently forgotten how hit-or-miss the whole damn process can be.

Sure, I wanted to be touched and kissed, but something felt wrong at the same time.

I declined, telling myself that my now-bloated figure was not in the mood for writhing around with a stranger.
