I need better comebacks.

"Wow! Any day now, huh?"

"...Um, 4 more weeks."

"NO WAY. Your baby must be HUGE. I certainly never got that big. Are you sure it's not twins?"

...Thanks lady. That really helps.


If you have a second, take a look at my post about Peggy, and the fundraiser to help her fight cancer. It took a lot of tears to write, and anything- even just some kind thoughts or words- would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks guys.

I would have resorted to the middle finger comeback. My favorite was when I got out of the car at the grocery store and this mom and two teenage daughters had just walked out of the store. They were so stunned by my pregnancy, they stopped in the door and watched me walk into the store with this horrified expression on their faces. As if the baby was going to fall out of me on my walk in. It took everything I had not to bust out the middle finger comeback, but trust me. I wanted to so very, very badly.

Some people are just rude. You are adorable.

The one I wanted to tell the lady who said something similar to me was "I'm 36 weeks pregnant...what's YOUR excuse?"

I feel your pain... With my first pregnancy, I got so big and so quick I had people asking me this question when I was only 5 1/2 months along. "I have 4 months to go, thank you". That pretty much shut them up.


Indecently, he was my smallest baby. Ahhh... the joys of pregnancy...

This is my days.
Public=people diagnosing me with twins.

I blogged about that a few weeks ago.
and at least since then my friends have stopped making large comments.

I loved being pregnant! The best was when I was around 36-37 weeks in my speedo bikini in the boat at the launch ramp. My back was to the ramp and when I turned around the women (I use that term loosely here) gasped and sputtered out, "you're pregnant!?". I just said, "yep, wanna deliver for me?" Shut them right up. :)

btw - I think you are soooo stinkin cute! Can't wait to see the little princess. :)

haha! I got that ALL THE TIME! I had 3 months to go and someone asked if I was having MULTIPLES. Not twins, MULTIPLES. Then she told me that someone she knew had triplets and she looked just like me...
thanks. thanks.
Finally, when someone would ask if I was sure "there was just one" I started answering:
"Actually, I'm having quintuplets! I'm looking pretty good!"
