Re: Pregnancy makes everyone around you stupid.

I'm due in early may.

In January we had a surprise anniversary party for my parents, and my grandpa says to me , "you look bigger than you ever got the first time already. Are you sure you're due in may?'



And this from a man who had 5 girls and a wife in his house. I"m surprised he's not dead already!!!!

Re: Pregnancy makes everyone around you stupid.

I'm starting to get this - people at work are coming up and going - gee, you're really getting big!

Seriously, what kind of response do they expect? They all know I'm due at the end of the school year, they all know that's not for a couple of months yet...what's their point? Really? I KNOW my belly is big - I'm 5 foot freakin' 2 for *&!%'s sake. Fact is, I'm still in size 6 maternity, which by this time with dd, I had moved in to M/L mat clothes, so they can all suck it.

And don't you love the look you get when they ask your due date....and you're not due for a few months...and they get this horrified expression on their face.

Here's hoping your new LO comes very, very soon. Today/tomorrow-ish.

BTW - Blimpee = we don't have them here anymore. Or subby's. mmmmmmm......

Re: Pregnancy makes everyone around you stupid.

Oh Momma, I feel for you. I have wide hips so I can atleast hide them a little longer. You can always tell them "Well, I only have _____ weeks left with my pregnancy then i'll be back to normal. What's your excuse?

Big hugs!!!!

Re: Pregnancy makes everyone around you stupid.

Every time I see my MIL she says loud so everyone hears....YOU"RE HUGE! I decided next time she says it I am going to reply, " WOW so are YOU!"

People are rude and I am so sick of strangers touching my belly...AAAAHHH!

Re: Pregnancy makes everyone around you stupid.

I got that all the time - the sad thing is for the first half of my pregnancy everybody told me how I was too small and something must be wrong and then all of a sudden it switched to how huge I was and why hadn't I had him yet So sorry mama, people are mean and insensitive to preggo women.

Re: Pregnancy makes everyone around you stupid.

You know what mama, I think a lot of people get the old stupid "Wow are you having twins you are so huge" bs question...possibly because people don't know what the heck they are talking about!!!! I have gotten that plenty of times! But I know how it feels to not have control of gaining weight, its like you just feel like a big ol piggie next to your non preggo friends!
