Belly Laughs

Stupid/bizarre/WTF things people have said to me during this pregnancy:

"Oh, you didn't sound pregnant on the phone"

"A girl? Looks like you're going to have to go for a third to get your boy"

"Well, your weight's 'bumped up a bit' " (my doctor on learning of my 7lb in 1 month weight gain)

"Don't get too big" (asinine friend of my MIL)

"Wow, I'd hate to see how big you got if you were to have a third"

"Jesus fucking Christ, if I hear one more thing about your weight........ you're pregnant for God's sake,......bloody hell, you're going to get bigger, deal with it..............................................and er, you've never looked more beautiful?" - LK

You didn't sound pregnant on the phone? Seriously? Maybe you just weren't trying hard enough. Breathe heavily, next time, and try and sound a bit FATTER, you know?

Glad to hear you're getting a laugh out of it all. And thanks for sharing!

Well, I asked a women the other day when she was due and she said she had her baby 4 months ago. I crawled away. Fluffy

The weight thing is ridiculous. Try not to worry about it. With my last one, I didn't gain a pound for the first 18 weeks, but still managed to get to almost 40 pounds by the end. Same as the first two.
