Things you should never say to a pg woman...for cyring out loud people! - Page 2

post #21 of 29
I told my husband yesterday that I must have reached "critical mass" because all of a sudden, I can't go anywhere without a comment.

The first, at the San Diego Zoo from another mom - "wow you like you're about ready to pop." Me: 'wow, thanks, I still have 6 weeks."

Then at the grocery store, another mom "you must have twins in there" Me: Um no, just one, but thank you for the well wishes. <sarcastic tone>

It just goes on and on. Its like - come on! DH thinks the next time someone says something to me I should stop and "educate" them on how to deal with a pregnant woman. Here my imagination of the incident:

Old Man: "Wow, you look like you are ready to pop/having twins/really huge"

Me: "You know, I'm having one baby and its not polite to comment on my size. I'm feeling uncomfortable enough without your inconsiderate comments. Perhaps the next time you see a pregnant woman and want to comment on how she looks you should say. "Wow you really look beautiful/glowing/goddess-like.""

In December 2005, I had a second trimester fetal loss of my son. Now, I am pregnany again (due end of May, start of June) with another boy.

I've actually had relatives ask me "Is he still alive?" :

Whoa, now that is the worst one I have ever heard. It is one thing for people to make you feel fat, but sheesh, talk about totally insensitive.

I am sorry for your loss.

And it's not like that question isn't on my mind 24 hours a day, anyway. Heaven forbid the poor little guy stop moving enough to take a nap or something! He's been zapped with a dopplar WAY to much, but I've been afraid since the stick turned blue.

Thank you. I still miss him.

The other night we were at my parents house and I was talking about how sad I was about the stretch marks that have suddenly decided to show up. I only got a few teeny tiny ones with dd and they didn't show up until I was 41 weeks. So I was complaining to my mom that they were only going to get worse with each passing day. DH walked over to take a peek at my belly and said, "wow, hopefully you have this baby soon."

Ouch.

A co-worker (male, single, childless) who'd barely gotten a glimpse of me said that if my feet were any indication, I'd go into labor soon. He said his sister went into labor 2 days after her feet swelled up. Thanks for noticing AND pointing it out to me, bud.

I am getting sick of people telling me OH you have not dropped yet no baby for you anytime soon. Okay A. I am on baby number 5, the odds are I am not going to drop and B. which I do not share with strangers, I am having a c-section. C. Why would you tell a very pregnant woman who is obviously miserable you are never going to go into labor?

By the way, I went to the doctor on Friday and my darling child is actually higher then she has been. I think my baby might have a touch of too much of her daddy in her and for some reason is thinking I am going to vomit her out. I wish she would move, my ribs are killing. Her butt is on my rib that I broke this past December and let me tell you it HURTS.
