Rude Things People Have Actually Said to Me While Prego
I was so excited to get pregnant, obviously to be a mother and to expand the already amazing family my husband and I have created, but I was also excited to sport an adorable little baby bump. I had no idea though that as soon as I started showing and expanding, I became public domain for everybody's rude and hurtful comments. Here are five things people have actually said to me.
"Wow, I wasn't as big as you when I was that far along. But don't worry, because you haven't gained too much weight in your face and arms." — My neighbor from down the street drove all the way over just to tell me this. She's also a mother of a 1-yr old.
"Wow, you're huge. You could give birth right now." — I was only 24 weeks pregnant
My dentist said, "Look at that belly! What are you, 8 months pregnant?" I smiled and said, "Nope, just four and a half months." And she said, "Oh, well are you sure there aren't twins in there?"
"I can really tell you're pregnant in your face." — A close relative said this to me. So basically she was telling a pregnant lady her face was fat. Nice.
"How much weight have you gained?" — A different close relative said this and I was so shocked, I didn't know what to say.
"Somebody must be having a baby REAL soon," said some stranger at the vet's office two weeks ago. "Not till August, "I said. And she said. "Oh. Wow."
"Aww you're pregnant, when are you due?," someone asked me last week. "Not till the end of August," I said, and her response was, "Oh god, you're going to be pregnant for the entire Summer? That sucks."
I have smiled through all these comments, because I don't want to be that hormonal prego lady who has an emotional outburst. But man, I'm only 27 weeks along, and if these comments continue, I'm going to lose it one day and really give someone a piece of my mind. Tell me, what rude, inappropriate, or hurtful comments have you received while pregnant?
