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.
