With just a couple of weeks until my due date, I am overjoyed that the big day is almost here. It’s hard to believe I’m at the end of my pregnancy. It really has gone by fast. One thing I won’t miss are the comments from total strangers. It is amazing what people say to you when you’re expecting. At first I was able to brush it off and laugh most comments away. Now, I just want to tell people to shut up. What ever happened to “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” A very good rule.
To help explain what I’m talking about, here is a sampling of comments I’ve received….
1) Are you having twins?
2) Your baby is going to be huge.
3) How far along are you? I was never as big as you when I was pregnant.
4) You look like you’re about to pop any day! (This would be fine, except it was said to me at 7 months pregnant).
So the moral of the story is, people, when talking to a pregnant woman, either pay her a compliment or don’t say anything at all. Trust me when I say we are aware of how big we are. We’re the ones carrying it around.
The countdown is on! Just 17 days to go.
