i am becoming increasingly more snarky with this pregnancy...i probably would have said "oh, i'm sorry...you must have never had the chance to have kids with the person that you love." and then shrugged and walked away. what a dick!

him: oh...same father?

 

WTF?!! What kind of question is that?



ha ha ha! i get this all the time from medicaid people. they assume the kids have different dads and then when they see that my husband has a different last name they assume that he is another kid with yet another father! no fail.

Yesterday I was at the mall and got a lot of great comments.  One guy walking by asked "is that real?"  I stared at him for a second and said yeah.  Then he said "it looks like a ball".  Who goes walking around the mall with a ball under their shirt.  I walked past a women and she stops and looks at me and says "oh my gosh!" with a look of shock on her face.  I don't want to go out in public anymore.

My DH keeps looking strangely at me as he sits next to me while I have been reading this thread.  This thread made me laugh and shake my head because I can't believe people would ask these things.  "Same father?"  What in the world are they thinking?  Walking around the mall with a ball under your shirt.  Oh, yeah, I am sure women do that all the time.

i made the call to start hibernating just the other day. problem is, i've got at least a few weeks to go and an increasingly bored toddler. good thing "the backyard" counts as "going out."

That's how I felt yesterday, too. I think I got more comments from strangers yesterday than I have on any other day thus far.

Just WOW. Seriously?? I thought I was getting weird commentary!! Now that I'm caught up on this thread, I see that people have been amusing and practically kind in the nosiness I've experienced, comparatively speaking. And no one touches the belly. NO ONE. God help them if they try. Idk if I give off the proper "don't eff with me" vibe somehow, or am just always standing in such a way, but compared to ds (where one much older lady actually tried to *hug* me - I blocked her and said told her I didn't hug totaly strangers, at which point she actually seemed to be insulted... whatever!) I haven't had near the "hands-on" harassment.

I'm so shocked at the nerve of some people!

 

The other day I had a lunch with my mom and grandma and my grandmother commented on how great I looked. I mentioned that this is my smallest, healthiest pregnancy. I can even still wear normal t-shirts! My mom pipes in with, "What, 5X?" I said, "No, my normal size." She asks again, "What, 5X?" Dude, seriously? Do you realize how HUGE a 5X would be on someone who wears XL shirts???

 

Then we had a great day yesterday so go figure... she's weird...
