Topic: People are stupid, what not to say to a pregnant lady
I must rant, just for a second. People need to learn a little couth. If one more person says to me "wow, you're only 16 weeks? And that BIG? And you know theres only ONE?" they might just recieve a new anal opening.
I'm 16 weeks. And I'm big. I tend to carry extra weight about my midsectioon to start with, so when babe pops, it shoves that fat along with it. And this is my fourth pregnancy, so my muscles are a little lax in that area. Not to mention I'm SHORT and theres not a lot of room, so my body has adapted and I carry all my babies WAY out front. You know that "hungry but can't eat because my watermellon belly is squishing my insides" feeling? I don't! How about the "can't catch my breath because there is a baby in my diaphragm"? Nope, not that one either, they hang all out front and leave my internal organs pretty much alone.
Seriously, I don't think people think. If they tell you you're tiny, you worry baby is not growing. If they tell you you're big, you want to hit them. Either way, stick to "you look great" and move along.
