A Typical Conversation

Standing in line at Ben Franklin I had the following conversation with the lady behind me.
As she looks at my belly, "Are you about due?"
"Um, no, not really."
"Oh, you look like you are."
Sigh..."Yeah, I'm due the end of July."
Shocked look "Really?!?!"
No mam, I'm lying about my due date to make the pregnancy longer. "Yeah."
"Wow, is it...."
Just stop, I know what's coming. "It's just one baby."
"Must be a big baby!"
"I guess."

The nerve of people is amazing to me. I would like to say it's funny to me because it's never happened, but it happens all too often in these parts, too! Laugh or cry??? I choose laugh.

I'm so sorry, Jen!!! I can't handle comments like this from people! People shouldn't say anything to pregnant women unless it's a total compliment! Sheesh!!! People should know better. :)

Hope you had fun this week!

Seriously, I am amazed at the things people say to pregnant women! When we moved here people didn't believe I was pregnant... They're like, are you sure. Yes, pretty darn - I don't eat for two and have a bulging belly because it makes me feel better! Thank you for talking to me this morning. I love and miss y'all! Good luck with Suzie's wardrobe today! Muah!

Oh Jen... I had the same thing happen over and over and over. Sucks that people can be so inconsiderate... I think I mostly laughed it off every time. But it got real old by the time I was 35 weeks.One lady (at Halloween) even told me "You look miserable". You have a cute belly!

Hang in there Jen. One good thing is that you are a super cute pregnant lady! We need to get together soon.

Geez...some people. You totally DO NOT look like you are carrying twins. You look great, girl!
