Things I've Been Told, Part II

Taken on 1/4/2015 at 33 weeks pregnant

"She's growing by the minute!"
Don't I know it!

"You're walking really fast for someone who is having a baby next month."
"Here's to hoping delivery will be fast too! ... Yeah, right."

"When do you go on maternity leave?"
"Whenever she decides to show up."

"You're hiding a basketball in your shirt, aren't you?"
"It's a volleyball, actually."

"If you have your baby in the office, I'll have to excuse myself. I'm just not ready for that. But I'll get one of the nurses to come help you!"
I appreciated her honesty!

"Ha! Wishful thinking. Every pregnant woman hopes she'll deliver earlier than 40 weeks."
My OB probably thought I asked about the likelihood of her showing up sooner than 40 weeks in hopes that she would be smaller at delivery, but I was actually thinking more about work.

"Thank you. (starts exiting office and then notices my belly when I stand up) And congratulations!"

"Oh, cute! Look at yoooou!"
You can't miss me with this bump!

"You're a whale!"
Well, that was fun.

"This will be you soon!"
Count on a Target-shopping, toddler-toting mom to gleefully welcome me to the Mom Club. :)

"And so it begins!"
My husband's response when I texted him with "Braxton Hicks contractions. Yaaaay."

Whoever said "you're a whale" needs slapped across the face! Replace that comment with mine: You look ravishing! :)

I love how unoriginal people are. Yes, obviously you're hiding a ball under your shirt, har dee har har!

Ahhhh, people, and their unwarranted comments. My kids would always ask what if I went into labor at school? I had to explain to them that when you go into labor it doesn't mean the baby just pops out right then and there. LOL! They seriously had no idea.
