A very nice mother of 5 asked me this at the gym today. She broke the ice by asking if this was my first baby, and I said, "No, 3rd." Then she said, "what are you, 8 months?" I said, "No, 5, I'm just popping out really early!"
When I was visiting my grandfather this last week one of his nurses said she could tell I was having a girl by the way I was carrying. I was like, "Really? I'm not due until May!" The look of shock on her face was priceless. She was like MAY?! I couldn't help but laugh, I am not looking forward to the fun comments later like are you SURE it isn't twins or jeeze, how long are they going to let you go?? But for now, I am able to laugh at them.

Ya I get that sometimes... Or people say oh it's a girl or oh it's a boy and I just say idk I'm only x number of weeks... Or the one I really hate oh this must be an oops baby who would want their kids that close together?? ME I would I think almost two years is a good gap... They better watch out I'm nice now at 5 months but may get crazy at 8 or 9 lol!! Or oh it's twins grrrrr leave me alone!!
I tell ya, some people just need to keep their thoughts to themselves! Sorry you had this experience. You think she would know better to say something when she has 5 kids- I bet she had some rude comments too. Jeesh.
With my last pregnancy I just wore a shirt that said "we're hoping it's a pony" no one really said much to me....
This time I'm a sahm and really the only places I go is to grocery store and the employees know.. But I'm also not really showing yet. When photobucket gets it's act together I'll post some new ones lol
Lol I read this post then had to go back to your bump pic in the subforum again and come back here. 8 months, seriously?! It looks like you have a neat little bump in your pics. Definitely nowhere near the size of an 8 month bump! Haha what a weirdo . I remember expecting a monstrous bump going back to look again abd thought I was thinking of the wrong person after I read this. You look slim and awesome witha cute little baby bump. I am getting either that I look ridiculously huge or that I'm small from people which is just stupid lol. Make up your minds people!
