I dont know about you ladies but as a pregnant woman, I know I'm going to get big. I'm ok with getting big. I know I will get back into shape after baby is here. What I don't get is why people who know me are SO surprised that I'm this big and *shocker* will even get bigger! It's not even a issue with weight gain, its just that I'm slender to start with, and my stomach gets BIG. Theres nowhere else for baby to grow!!!
I've had SOOOO Many people (mainly coworkers) the past 2 weeks ask "When are you due again?" and I also get the "you look great" but followed by "How much longer do you have"?
My boss even (awkwardly, he's an older man with 4 kids) asked how much longer I had and hinted that if I needed a rest or a day off to take it (I havent had to take a day off while preggo, except for one appt. All the rest I'm able to book after 3, so I havent had to leave work for them.) But I might have to take him up on it... hahaha. But even he started the conversation with "I know you're getting farther along, and that pregnant women sometimes need a break as they get bigger and more tired" or something along those lines. It was awkward, but he did have good intentions.
I'm just getting sick of "Wow you have how much longer" and all the other comments! Yes I realize I'm big. Yes, I will get bigger. Whats the big surprise all about?! There IS a baby inside me!!!!
I think for me, When I left work last time I was about 29 weeks so they never saw me get "really" big. I am now 31+ weeks, and will be 35 when the school year is done (We finish the end of June in Canada) and that still gives me the last month or so off. (And of course the pending Csec might be early... but still)
Edit point: I guess I should post a pic so you ladies get what I'm talking about... lol. I will try to get on that.
Anyone else have a funny or awkward story?! Or just rant in general about things?!
