Four things people have said to me since I got pregnant. True story.

20 Apr

"Pull my finger." Awkward pregnancy shots never get old. Click on the photo for more.

1) “Wow, you’re only twelve weeks along?  I’m sorry, but you look WAY bigger than twelve weeks!”

2) “Are you sure you don’t have two in there?”

3) “When are you due?” (Asked at 10 weeks in the grocery store by a complete stranger.)

4) “I can’t believe you’re only fourteen weeks.  You’re the same size as my cousin, and she’s due tomorrow.”

Alright, listen up people.  YOU CANNOT – I REPEAT, CANNOT – GO AROUND SAYING THINGS LIKE THIS TO PREGNANT WOMEN.  Especially women who are baking their second, third, fourth, or fifteenth child.  We know we are big.  We are wearing the weight.  Please, just comment on the weather and leave our bellies out of the conversation.

The End.

    Amen! It is NOT ok to comment about how big pregnant women are.

    What I love is how I’ll have half a dozen people say something to me in one day and it’ll span from “you look so small- I can’t believe you’re 6 months!” to “You look like you’re gonna pop any day now.” No one knows what they’re talking about…

    … but they all think they do.

    I gained 17kg with both my kids, and that’s HUGE considering I’m normally 49kgs. Oh did I get some comments….

    This is crazy! You are not big!!! I’ve heard from all of my friends with 2 kids that you start showing earlier on the second. You are tiny and adorable. : )

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! With my third I got so big at the end that not even maternity clothes fit! It was all water–I only had one outfit to wear day after day after day….But, I am scary. No one would have said anything to my face.

    Next time say “Are you channeling your inner stupid person right now?”
    You are NOT big. You are just right for carrying a baby!

    Your belly pops out a lot more and a lot sooner on your second pregnancy, especially if they were not too far apart. These people are completely ignorant, so don’t let them get you down!
