Re: What Makes People Think it's OK To Say That?

I hear you on the rude comments. I have no idea why people feel the need to say anything but congrats.

My rude comments are "are you sure there is only one", "it looks like you might have 3 or 4 in there", "you still fit in there" (speaking of the standard washroom stalls", "I thought you were done at 2, must have been an oops"

I want to reply with "my gosh your *** got bigger", or "are you uglier now"

but I can be mean.

I have been crazy hormonal, and over emotional the past month. Alot has to do with DD's epilepsy and the meds not working. And the fact we are broker then a joke. Which adds to the rude comments, on how it wont get better once baby comes. My mom keeps throwing that one out there.

People need to just learn to say nothing at all unless they can be nice.

I had a fun one while out in Michigan from my 17yo sister of all people, at 19-20 weeks. "You don't really look that pregnant, it more looks like you're just getting fat." .... Thanks? I think I'll take pregnant.

Re: What Makes People Think it's OK To Say That?

most of the time people think they are being so cute or clever by commenting. I know its annoying though. We are having our 3rd girl and the oldest just turned 3. You would think it was some kind of little freak show to have three girls in one family. Why is that weird enough to comment on? I have no idea.
