the intellectual fruitfulness of a creative imagination
the quality of something that causes or assists healthy growth
the state of being fertile; capable of producing offspring
Those three definitions seem very loosely related at best, but I didn’t write the dictionary. I’ll let you decide which definition fits the excerpt best:
My doctor’s office was decorated with fecundity. Pictures of smiling babies and pregnant women hung on the walls, and the racks overflowed with magazines with parent and family in the titles. I waited, my purse tucked over my stomach against the curious glances of the other patients waiting, most of whom were proudly displaying bulges. Several of them came with children, small humans who ran around and wept without provocation and seemed to me both delightful and obnoxious.

In the above photo, I am 8-months pregnant with my son. My then-21-month-old daughter is resting on me in a rare moment of inactivity. Notice the laptop at my right hand. We writer moms must write when we can.
