My fears really began after seeing a rat in our bedroom when I was pregnant with my first child. I was terribly afraid of rats and mice and Iím still afraid of rats; and Iím not especially fond of mice either. Anyway, when I saw the rat I put one of my hands on my stomach and the other one on my mouth as I let out a scream. I suppose thatís a natural reaction for anyone thatís afraid of rodents, or terribly afraid of anything. A few days later I remembered what I had heard my mother say about marking unborn babies and became horribly afraid that my baby would be born looking like a rat. The rest of my pregnancy was a nightmare.
