You Are Huge!

Got my first one of those today. I was shopping with my three youngest children, the others were in their weekly pottery class, and the saleswoman asked me when I was due. When I answered around Christmas, she screamed, "Oh my, you are HUGE!!! And you still have so far to go."

I really had no idea how to respond to it. LOL, it doesn't seem like a compliment though. In the past week or two I have seemed to grown a disproportionate amount. I left behind that oh-so-brief point in pregnancy when you look like you are just hiding a ball under your shirt, and have rapidly approached the beached-whale-I-think-she's-going-to-blow-up point.

What was funny though was when she asked me if all *three* of the kids were mine. When I said yes, I was hit with, "OMG you are going to have four children. Are you crazy? Four Kids?!?!" I didn't mention the other kids that weren't with me for fear she would have died of a heart attack right there behind the counter and then who would have rung up my purchases.

I had my prenatal appointment today and all is going well. I did have to deal with the annoying nurse who is on a power trip yet again. This time she yelled at me, yes actually raised her voice and reprimanded me, because I left my urine sample in the "wrong" bathroom. She told me that if I was going to use that bathroom "way over on the other side of the office" I should have carried the sample over with me.

Nevermind the fact that I had to sit in the waiting room waiting for my appointment for a good 15 minutes after I used the bathroom. I guess I should have sat there holding the cup of pee. Wouldn't that have delighted my fellow waitees.

Also had to take off my really heavy shoes again before I got weighed. I wonder what she would do if I told her I couldn't untie them myself, due to my extreme hugeness you know.

Annoying about the "you are huge" comment! My SIL used to look at me towards the end of my pregnancies and say things like "Yes, I guess you look so huge because you're so short. I hardly looked pregnant, even at the end ... guess it's because I'm nice and tall."

Just what I needed to hear ;-)

Hi, I was just passing by and came across your blog.

I see you've put a fair bit of effort into it. My own blog covers the subject of Color Contacts.

Drop by sometime.

Regards,

Don
