Re: Vent/Rant No, it's not twins. Yes I am sure. Thanks for playing.

Oh my gosh, I am so right there with you. With my first pregnancy, every person I walked past was just CONVINCED I was having twins and didn't know it. With my second I didn't hear it quite as much because I wasn't working and out and about as much, but I still heard it. This time around, no one has mentioned twins, but my MOM and my GRANDPA both called me FAT! They were totally joking and thought they were funny, but REALLY???

Now all I hear anytime I leave the house is how "uncomfortable" I look. Um, yeah. Thanks. That's like telling someone "Gee, you look awful". Yes, I AM uncomfortable! I can barely walk, I'm so uncomfortable. My joints are literally being torn apart, and my uterus is literally trying to fall out of my body. I'm pretty sure I'm the definition of uncomfortable! But, dear random strangers, I do NOT want to hear about how I LOOK uncomfortable!

The last 4 weeks (since around 32 weeks) I also get to hear over and over how I must be ready to pop that baby out any moment. I try to smile and politely tell them EXACTLY how many weeks I have left, so they know not to say stupid things like that again.

Now, in everyone's defense, I am VERY short waisted, and i have 21 1/2 long babies that have nowhere to go but out. So, yes, I get big.

I'll conclude with the happy thought that a lady who works at Ross first asked me when I was due, then simply said "You're beautiful pregnant". Now THAT I could hear a million times over and never get tired of!!!

LOL!!! Loved this! Do you write a blog? You're hilarious!! I've been trying to cook up something really witty and snarky to say when people start making comments (because they will without doubt, I'm already a spectacle at 5'11 and over 200lbs) and being pregnant just pushes their idiot urge to say something to irresistible levels. PLUS, this time, BONUS, I AM HAVING TWINS!!! Lol!! This should be rich.

I agree, I want an "I won't eat you shirt too", haha!!

I have been pregnant 3 times and worked at the same place. A person would think that by the third time in 5 years they would be smarter. Umm nope. This 3rd time I lost it. I told so many people off it quicky got around and everyone left me alone. Amazingly it was all the women I work with--The truck drivers were the best. always telling me I looked great.

Part of me really wishes that pregnant women still went into confinement, in that I know I'd love to ditch work those last months, "disappear" somewhere, rest, pamper myself, do some serious nesting, read books, garden... and just not have to deal with people in general. LOL

But then I'm the biggest homebody you'll ever meet.

I had the opposite problem. I WAS having twins. When someone stopped me in public (and even some of my coworkers) were constantly asking me if I was sure it was twins and if they were 'OK' since I didn't look like I was having twins. So, yeah the other side sucks too. It is unbelievable that a stranger would walk up to you and say that something is wrong with your unborn child just by looking at you. WTH??!!

I really think we need some awesome preggo lady pics on this thread. I only have one of myself when I was 2 days from delivering and it scares me every time.

Granted, I started the pregnancy at 125, ended at 180....and had a 10lb. Baby. By the end, I was convinced there were two in there....
