BR: Vent

Walgreens Cashier:  "How much longer?"

Me: "A little over 7 weeks"

Cashier:  Her eyes widen and says "and there's only one in there...??"

Yes!  Yes!  Yes!

I get comments from strangers like this all the time!  I don't know how much more of them I can hear and still remain polite!

Thanks!  :Vent Over:

Re: BR: Vent

  • obviously i have never had a baby myself, but i know all of my close friends say that whats even worse is when youre really close and people say...

    "didnt you have that baby yet?!?!"

    Pregnant women are not small women! What do people expect? Them to never grow more than a pant size or two?!

    People suck.

  • People are crazy.  I'd start to tell them fantastical tales of wonder- like, no, there are actually 14 in here, or yes, I'm this big and the baby is going to be a little person- things that will shock and amaze them.  And then I'd ride off into the sunset smirking as I went.

    Haha too funny!  Too bad I suck at lying because that would be priceless to see their expressions!

    LOL - yeah I've got like 4 more months to go, I'm having Decuplets!

    Ooh or you could get really mean and ask them about THEIR belly... ooohhhh

    It isn't lying, it is sarcasm.  You just need to deliver with a straight face and laugh at them when their eyes widen and their jaws fall slack.

    I'm going to be a mean pregnant person I think because I hate to be touched by strangers and I already get all kinds of weird comments because of my hair...  However, my mom is one of those big public commentator, so i try to be at least sort of nice when people do it.  She does not, however, go up to pregnant women- she will oogle your baby though.

    I know...I am always so tempted to be like "how many are you having" or "when are you due?" when they are obviously not pregnant but I don't have the backbone for that lol!

  • I took my best friend out to dinner when she was 5 days overdue and she took a swig of my wine. The waitress gave us huge looks and when she decided to have a glass of her own she asked when she was due - she politely said well if you must know I was due 5 days ago. The faces she got from strangers were priceless. I just dont know why people feel they need to ask.

    Luckily the belly touching thing doesn't bother me that much.  However, I personally haven't been touched by a stranger, but I hear that happens often.  That would probably weird me out!

  • It's so amazing how people just throw all tact right out the window when they see a pregnant woman. I just want to ask them where their manners went! 

    I'm sorry, hon!  

  • image maryandkirk0909:

    I'm going to be a mean pregnant person I think because I hate to be touched by strangers?

    I think I'll be very slappy when I'm pregnant, strangers touching me is really not ok.

    Kmo, I'm sorry! You look great in your pictures, though, people are just being stupid.?

  • People just don't know when to keep their mouth shut.

    I have the opposite problem, I am tired of people saying, "Your soo tiny, how much have you gained?"  Like I don't know this already. Being too small is a problem, I am on bedrest and now have to have my baby early. 

    Re: to people touching your belly.  This has never happened to me. The only people that touch my belly are family. 

    Just think, you only have 7 more weeks of people and their rude comments.  Then I am sure we have a hold new list of issues!

  • I'm sorry. I know it will suck worse when I get further along, but right now my students tell me everyday how huge I am.

    PS I love your dress! So cute and flattering! I wish I could find clothes like that around here.

  • People are such a$$holes. I will probably be a mean pregnant person too. And I'll totally be the one to say "oooo when are you due?" or "gosh you must be due soon yourself!". But I'm sassy already. The next person to ask when we're having a kid is going to get a big ol' ear full of "when we stop having anal". :D Too bad my MIL doesnt talk to us much, I'd love to use that one on her.

    I will straight up say to some touchy person "please don't touch my stomach" with a death stare. Like... get the eff off me! Creep!
