I thought I’d take a brief moment to update everyone on my “being in a family way”. I am currently 39+ weeks pregnant and this baby isn’t showing any signs of wanting to come out. So, the doctor and I don’t think she’ll be showing her face in the next 5-7 days. Although I’m excited to meet this little girl, I am relieved she’s not ready to come out because mama’s got a head cold! And I’d like to fight off this cold and disinfect my house before she gets here.
For those of you who haven’t seen me in my “with child” state, let’s just say… my limbs and face look like they did prior to pregnancy, but my stomach area is a different story. I look like I’ve shoved a basketball up my shirt. Now that I think about it, I have a picture on my computer. Too bad my head is cut off. #SelfTimer
Over the past several weeks I’ve received a handful of comments from random strangers (what’s odd is that most of them are from men, someone should do a study on this). These comments include:
- “I didn’t know watermelons were in season. Looks like you swallowed a seed.”
- “Are you carrying multiples or just one baby?”
- “You’re carrying high, must be a boy.”
- “Honey, I just want to tell you… do the epidural.”
I love when random strangers advice me on medical treatment.
For all of you mom’s out there, what is the strangest pregnancy comment you ever received? Was it from a man or a woman (I may conduct a study)?
