At Least a Stranger Hasn't Touched My Belly Yet...

I'm not one to get offended by things people say to me regarding my giant belly, but sometimes they are just funny...  and I have to think - really? you thought that was a good thing to say to a stranger?? :)

Young girl at store:  "Wow, you're really big!"  (thanks....)  "A girl who works here is about as far along as you and is barely showing, but she was like really skinny before, so..." (thanks...)

Young guy at store:  "You're about to pop!"  (well, actually I've got a few months left...)  "So, can you like, feel it moving around in there?  Is that weird or what?" (haha actually, yes, it kind of is when you think about it!)


  1. Oh my GOODNESS. The comment by the young girl is TOO MUCH! TOO MUCH!

    A few months ago, a worker at Hallmark told me that I looked like I was about to pop. I told her that I still had a few months. She said, "YIKES! That's gotta be one HUGE baby." I just gave her the side-eye. ;)

  2. My personal favorite is when other women tell me they only gained 18 pounds during their entire pregnancy....and I have clearly gained twice that already :)

  3. Conclusion? People are idiots. One of my friends used to go around telling everyone how she gained like 3/10 of a lb with her pregnancy because she did yoga the whole time. Really freakin annoying. Then she got pregnant again and it didn't work the same way. Ha. Karma will get you every time.

    Also, in order to avoid saying the wrong things to pregnant people, I just avoid all contact with them ;)

  4. People are AWFUL!! I had one patient say, "Ohhh... you're PREGNANT! I was wondering why you had so many pimples!"
    I've been bracing myself for the postpartum, "When is your baby due??" questions. Must carry Katherine around at all times. ;)


Your comments make me happy!
