I know I am not the most radiantly beautiful pregnant lady. But, I REALLY liked my belly picture from yesterday. I made it my FB profile picture. Well, this morning I am definitely the hormonal pregnant woman crying over a stupid comment. Who in their right mind tells a 39 week pregnant lady if they are sure they are only having one? In all honesty, I feel SMALL. I got huge so early on in pregnancy that when she continued to measure well on schedule and I didn't LOOK bigger I started to feel phenomenal! So, with that comment today I feel horrible, weepy, and I know I shouldn't. It is everything I can do to not bawl my eyes out. This is probably just a fish for a compliment post, sorry. It is just a hard start to the day.

It also doesn't help that I am already emotional because of what day this is and remembering my angels.

Ugh - I feel so sorry for you! People say the dumbest things. I like to think it is their way of saying you look ready to pop and really pregnant more than thinking you look bigger than you should, but it is such a stupid, insensitive thing to see. Cheer up though - baby will be here before you know it!

People are so stupid! I got that comment all the time with DS and DD. This time some people are telling me I'm small for having twins, then one of my coworkers asked me the other day if I'm sure there aren't 3. For real smart ***? FWIW I've always thought you were on the small side for being as far along as you are. You look fabulous mama!

Okay...I have not seen the pic...but that is the meanest thing that someone could say. You are doing fantastic because your body is growing a HUMAN BEING. Who cares how big you look (I will have to check out the pic, because if memory serves me, you were NOT big at all in previous pics). That person deserves to have a snarky comment angled their direction. I am sorry she rained on your parade. It is so hard when the hormones are in high drive and someone is mean. It has happened to me and it certainly does take the wind out of your sails.

ETA: I just looked at the pic. LOLOLOLOL. I can show her big if she wants. You look awesome at full term. That perfect preggo belly is not big at all. I have seen WAY bigger. DH even commented to me on a woman in my church group last week. She had a c-section yesterday at 38 + 4...but last weekend she was looking huge. But I would never say anything like that to her and even DH (who is not known for tact) did not say anything to her. I think all preggo ladies are perfect, no matter how big their belly. And yours is not big at all.

People don't think before they say something. I don't think you look big at all.

I'm sorry. I get so pissed off when people make that comment to other ladies. I bet your belly picture looks absolutely beautiful.

Thanks ladies. I did do a snarkey comment after her comment calling her rude. She has since apologized saying that she didn't mean to be rude...yeah...then think before you speak (write)! Thanks for letting me vent and for lifting my spirits yet again.

People just doing think before they speak and most of the time when they do post something rude it is because they are jealous that you look so darn good. I didn't see the picture but I'm sure you look beautiful!

Girly - you are rocking an adorable baby belly.

I get told at least once a day how huge I am. I honestly just laugh it all off.

You are beautiful and I am glad you feel that way!

That is just one of those stupid comments that people make when they don't have anything useful to say I have thought all along that you look tiny for how far you are- you look great!
