Three Pregnant Ladies

Three pregnant women were waiting in the doctor’s waiting room for an antenatal check-up and were all knitting garments for their respective babies.

Suddenly the first expectant mother stops knitting, checks her watch, pulls a bottle of pills from her handbag and takes one.

“What was that?”, the other two ask, curiously.

“Calcium tablet. Good for mommy, good for baby”, she replies, patting her stomach affectionately.

Satisfied, all three continue with their knitting. Five minutes later, the second one stops knitting, checks her watch, takes a bottle of pills from her handbag and takes one.

“What was that?”, the other two enquire.

“Vitamin tablet”, she replies, “Good for mommy, good for baby” and she pats her stomach affectionately.

All three smile and continue busily with their knitting. Five minutes later, the last woman stops knitting, checks her watch, takes a bottle of pills from her handbag and takes one.

“What was that?” ask the other two.

“Thalidomide. I can’t knit sleeves.”
