Don't mess with me!

Ok. So I am completely aware that I am 9 months pregnant, very large, and appear to grow by the second. But, come on people! Has everyone lost their inner filter? I'm beginning to think so. I am getting a little annoyed at people CONSTANTLY coming up to me and saying, "Oh my gosh, you are HUGE!", or "You are so ready to pop!" or, "I didn't think you could get any bigger!" or "You still have TWO whole weeks, how are you ever going to make it with that belly!!". It's even more annoying when it is coming out of my patient's mouths - patients who haven't taken a shower in about 3 weeks, have never visited a dentist, who smell like they just smoked a carton of cigarettes all at once, and who are usually covered in cat/dog hair and smell of cat/dog pee. Now, I am ok with walking around telling everyone how huge/uncomfortable I feel and recognizing my girth, but when someone comes right out and tells it to me, I tend to get my little feelers hurt and a little defensive. I've got A LOT of hormones right now (just ask Wade) so I'm allowed. Anyway, if you ever see a pregnant lady who looks insanely uncomfortable, about ready to cry her eyes out, waddling down the street, don't comment on any of those things. Simply smile and tell her she is beautiful. It will make her day, and you won't get backhanded either :)

P.S. Saw the doctor and of course, NO CHANGE! So, I might just have to go to 41 weeks with a scheduled induction!! AHHH! Keep your fingers crossed for me that we will go sooner!

OH sweet little Brynn. I remember those days. Just be thankful they arent asking if its twins. I got that all the time. You truly are BEAUTIFUL inside and out. This will all be gone in a few short weeks and you'll miss that belly, I promise. Dont worry about what idiots think. They dont know you personally and they are missing out on that. Try and be paitent I know these last few weeks suck the worst but it will soon be over. I will keep you in my prayers and cant wait to meet your little man

Ha, ha. I wrote that post at work this morning. Can you tell I was a little sleep deprived and ornery? :) I LOVE my belly and I know I will miss it. I'm just amazed at people sometimes. But I am anxious to meet my little fella and it will be good to see you again in November!!!

I know what you are feeling! The word "HUGE" just should NEVER be used to describe a woman ever!! I wish so bad when I am pregnant to take the belly off and strap it to the idiot who thought it was a great idea to say "WOW! You are going to POP" and see how they like it. haha You are doing great and I KNOW you look AMAZING!!! I went 10 late with my first and still had to be started...the second one you will be like just schedule the inducing now!!! haha Good luck and can't wait to see pictures of your little one!

I'm sure your not that big. People are thoughtless, tactless and let's face it kind of dumb. Hang in there.

Yeah! I got that a lot and it made me want to gouge out some eyeballs! "Yeah, I know I am the size of a small state..thanks for pointing that out!" I actually liked my big pregnant body until I hit about 37 weeks and then it just didn't seem cool anymore. I hope everything goes well for you! You look adorable to me!!!

Don't worry. That baby will be here one way or another! You're soo right, no one likes to be reminded that they are so big and so uncomfortable. But just remember, you get the prize thats in the box. You do look beautiful...I never looked that good! LOL GOOD LUCK! It will be over before you know it!
