"You look tired!"

How do you respond to that!?

"Thanks, you'd look tired, too, if you were 65 months pregnant."

LOL! I hate that too, and its always my MIL who says it. Yeah I'm tired. I'll be tired for the next 18 years. Oh well. I'm not complaining, so you shouldn't either. LOL

Agree. Unless of course it's "You look tired" followed by "let me watch the kids for you while you nap" ... I could probably deal with it then

agreed! It just makes me feel even more tired! I also agree that if someone says it, they should follow up with an offer to provide extra rest
