Thanks everyone for the supportive comments. I am very sensitive about this pregnancy both because of my sons diagnosis and the fact that it was unplanned and I feel like people are mocking me for having kids so close. But.... I am one of those people who is sensitive to other peoples comments / looks . My husband is always laughing at me because he says I "read" too much into other peoples reactions.
I am like that too.... It's hard when you feel like people are staring or whispering when you are out and about... Some people don't even bother whispering! I also hate when complete strangers ( I don't mind it on here, though most people are sympathetic or have totally been there!) ask if this pg was planned... Um, I'm sorry I didn't realize that was your business...
I've never understood why pregnancy and raising children make it open season on tactless comments.
If I was 3 (or even at my age), I would not want to talk to her either!!!!
A few weeks ago, a man (while he was sitting at a demonstration for kids in a kids' chair instead of giving up his seat to my children or myself) guffawed loudly about the size of my belly. This is really common. I wonder why my giant belly is a justification to POINT, audibly pass horrible comments, etc. Still, I just smile and nod and remember it's awesome I am still out and about. Besides, the real craziness on comments is going to start when the babies are all out!
That is SO awesome that you are out and about! I barely have the energy to go to the grocery store!
You know, the last trimester, or any time during pg is a great time to tell a woman how big she is! I just wonder why people think that is what a woman needs/wants to hear? No common sense, I guess??
