One of the worst parts about being pregnant for me are the comments that I get from people. Now I understand that no one is trying to be mean and sometimes people just don't know what to say but does that give everyone the right to just say whatever they want? I wish I could say what I wanted to but that doesn't really go over so well. I don't understand who said it was okay to tell a pregnant woman exactly what she looks like over and over. But if I went up to someone who had a big nose and told them that there nose was so big that wouldn't really work would it. Okay I know that I am a little hormonal but it is just getting really old! So this is my way of saying what I always wanted to say (but not to anyone's face you know I wouldn't want to be rude) :)
These are some of the most popular ones:
"Oh you look like you are going to pop!" Okay How do you respond to that? I am not a balloon thanks.
"You are getting so big!" Yeah you think I don't know that?
"Are you having twins?" That is just another way of saying that I am look like a whale. Nice!!
"When are you going to have that baby?" Believe me I'll let you know!!!!
"Wow you are looking so fat!" Okay I only heard this one once but seriously someone said the word FAT!
"Oh my gosh does it hurt?" Yes it hurts what do you think!!!
So next time you want to make small talk with a very hormonal pregnant woman just ask her how she is feeling or tell her she has the glow of a pregnant woman or ask her if she needs a foot massage! These other comments don't make us feel any better. No one wants to hear that they are so big even if we are, I understand I am big I can hold a freakin cereal bowl on this thing alright you don't need to say it out loud can't we all just pretend PLEASE!!!!! :)
