It seems like I'm asked daily my due date. I'm very big this time around, probably moreso then I was with HUT, so I guess everyone feels the need to make it their business to ask when I'm due, expecting an answer of "2 weeks" or the likes to come out of my mouth.
On Sunday I entered my third trimester. Therefore, I have nearly 3 months left in this pregnancy.
I fully realize that I was overweight when I got pregnant. I also realized that I'm 5'2" tall and don't have much room to grow, aside from outward. It's also my second pregnancy so by eight weeks pregnant there wasn't much denying that I was having a baby. She popped early, and this bump has grown with a fury ever since.
And, since we all know about our scare in the beginning, I'm happy to gain the biggest belly I need to to ensure that Ellie is nice and healthy inside there.
What baffles me the most about this, is that it's usually women (like 99.9% of the time) that are making these faces of horror and gasping when I tell them how much time I have left. Most of which probably were pregnant at least once in their lives and know what it's like to feel hormonal, tired and large-and-in-charge. So you'd think they'd have a little heart and keep the "ohmygodyouhavethatlongtogoyouarehugeyoupoorthing" comments TO THEMSELVES.
Apparently in my little neck of the woods, this is not so.
So, to the woman who was laughing as the checkout woman at TJ Maxx said "good luck" to me in a condescending tone as I exited, after informing her that I was, in fact, NOT having twins - I hope you were mortified at the "WHAT A BITCH!" that not so quietly came out of my mouth as I busted through the door. Because it is not ok to tell a non-pregnant woman that they are huge, and it's most definitely not ok to tell one of the pregnant persuasion the same thing.
I'm tired of playing nice and just smiling when these people make me feel like shit for how large I am. So, if you come in my path and behave that way from this point forward, prepare for the pregnant woman rath that will hit your ass immediately afterward. Because I fully intend on educating these people on what is NOT ok to say to someone who is expecting.
Probably won't make a difference, but at least I'll walk out with my head held high, instead of sulking in tears in my car afterwards!
