What baby?????????

Today… at Wal-Mart (I know.. I know.. I should expect it..) I received my first ever questioning of my pregnancy.

While standing in the craft isle, A lady walked past with her family and about 3 year old daughter. They were looking at some things, All I had in my cart was a picture frame and she put her hand on my shoulder and asked me.. “When is your baby due?”

And today.. While I am wearing a tighter shirt.. I don’t look 5 months and 1 week pregnant. I just look like an ordinary chubby girl.. much like I did before there was a 1 pound 10″ long wiggle worm in my stomach..

seee….. Would you ever ask that girl when her baby was due???????????

I was seriously offended… I don’t know why.. I guess I should just smile and go on my way and not bring it up.. but I just kept thinking, “What if I wasn’t”

I did respond, “December” to her before walking away.. but I can’t get it out of my head.

When I got back to work, I went to my husbands desk to vent to him about it. The girl behind him says “You don’t look pregnant at all, I think you look great. Don’t let it get you down, I don’t think she meant it.” I kind of looked at her a little puzzled and said.. “Well, I don’t really have anything to be upset about since I am pregnant, I just don’t think I look like it today.” To which she replies, “You’re pregnant??” ummm.. yea.. like 6 months ago lady!! :) See what I mean.. there are TONS of people that I see every day, multiple times a day that have no idea.. so what was this lady’s deal????

The ladies in my office claimed it was because she could see my “glow”… which by the way.. this whole “glow” thing.. biggest crock of crap EVER!!!! It’s so dumb.. If anything.. its called grease from this sudden puberty like breakout I’ve been experiencing for the past 5 months!

Have I mentioned I’m also a little on edge??? :)

    Just take a deep breath and move on. It’s not worth getting upset about . . . you look great!

    On a side note . . . how are your tomatoes doing? And, we haven’t had a pictoral update of what vegetable the baby resembles lately . . . Is it banana week?

  3. Yea.. I’m pretty much over it!!!

    And the tomatoes I’m growing? They are OUT of control. The plant is sooo huge.. It has a lot of tomatoes on it but only about 5 are ripe. I think I’m picking them for the salad for dinner tonight.

    And as for the fruit comparison.. I’m a little bummed because I feel like I’ve been gipped of my whole 20th week.. 20 is a big week.. its half way.. I had all sorts of plans for week 20.. and now.. tomorrow is week 21.. I didn’t even get to reflect on my middle point.. I didn’t have one.. I just skipped it.. the week i missed was the banana.. tomorrow is the carrot.. then the spaghetti squash…

    You still have tonight to write about your halfway point!


    I can always tell a pregnant lady by how she walks…belly or no belly!
