Did people ever make comments during your pregnancy (or your significant others' pregnancy) that just made you want to say "Whaaa? Were you using your head when you asked/said that?" I haven't had any truly horrible ones but I thought it would be fun to blog about to hear what things have been said to you. Here are just a few that have been said to me.
*Store clerk as I am leaving (they always have something to say don't they?) "You know, basketballs really aren't that expensive, you don't have to try to smuggle one out."
*"So, are you getting closer?" I literally responded, "No, actually I am going backwards."
*A teenager, "How much longer do you have? No offense, but you look REALLY pregnant." (I still had two months)
*Another store clerk, "That would be so cool if you were out shopping on Black Friday and you were in a really long line at Kohl's and your water broke so then you could say, hey my water just broke! and get to the front of the line."
*This one just gets annoying because I get asked so frequently, "Are you excited?" Um, what do they expect me to say, "uh, no not really, this could be the worst thing ever." ...
*And this one just gets old because I really don't know how to respond, "Oh you don't even look pregnant from the back!" Maybe I am wrong about this but other than the waddle I didn't think you were supposed to look pregnant from your backside. You may look like you've gained weight but can you actually look pregnant from the back?...
*This is Ken's favorite thing to say to me after he has had a big meal, "I feel like you look!" I actually do find it amusing, even though he stole that line from a friend.
So, tell me your weirdest/funniest pregnancy comment. Sally, I am sure someone in a Big Lots somewhere must have said something crazy to you so please share. :)
p.s. I've never had a total stranger touch my belly. Did that ever happen to you?
p.p.s. 10 days and counting...
