Top 3 Pregnancy Comments

3. Starbucks employee, after a long story about her daughter ends with: "You’ll never fit into those little jeans again [pause], no really, you won’t."
2. Unnamed coworker calls out in a crowded room: "you’re finally getting fat!"
1. Unnamed coworker when she almost walks past me: "I almost didn’t recognize you…your face has gotten so full!"

The thread: all offenders are women and none meant to be intentionally malicious which honestly makes these comments more funny than anything…but heaven help me before I say the words "fat" or "full" or "jean size" to a pregnant woman.

I have about 2.5 weeks left of work before I go on maternity leave and looking at my lengthy, type-A to-do list, I definitely need those 2.5 weeks. We have had the baby’s room done for a while now and I think Telfer’s going to take some pictures tonight…so maybe tomorrow I’ll post them. Fun, fun.

  1. Believe it or not, I wore skinnier jeans than ever after Liam was born (not immediately).
    Also, I totally understand your feelings about all those comments. Sometimes I just wished people would keep their mouths shut, because really, EVERYONE has different experience. But then I learned it’s a curse…after you’re a mom, it’s really hard to keep your own mouth shut. I find myself telling stories/giving unsolicited advice often. Just yesterday, I told the door to door meat guy that his newborn might sleep better on his stomach!


  2. I just want to say for the record that, based on the few pregancy picks I’ve seen on this blog, there could not be a cuter pregnant lady than you.


  3. I agree with Missy–you are way the cutest pregnant gal around! You will have no problems fitting into your normal clothes. I am anxious to see the crib and the bedding, etc. Thanks in advance for putting up more pictures! Oh and thanks for the card and pictures you sent…got them yesterday and put them up on my fridge. Love you!
