Things you should never say to a pregnant woman

Keeping in mind that I have THREE MORE MONTHS to go...

  1. "You haven't had that baby yet?"
  2. "Twins. Definitely twins."
  3. "God, you're HUGE!"
  4. "No way you'll get that baby out."
  5. "You look like you're about to pop!"
  6. "So, due any day now, huh?"

The last comment arrived today. I ate the person's head. It was tragic, but necessary.

I am taking suggestions for clever retorts to these image-boosting comments. In the meantime:

22 weeks...

And today, 25 weeks...

Um, I think I'm looking pretty damn good, in spite of all the comments. I LIKE being round. No stretch marks (furiously knocking on wood). Awesome, glowy skin. Not a hell of a lot of weight gain...'bout 15 pounds. Not bad for a 35 year old mamacita.

You look damn good! I still have badges of honor from Kelsi 8+ years ago. I miss you SIS! Mom forwarded me your blog and you haven't changed a bit.
My email is or I emailed you awhile back but did not hear from - probably went into your junk mail cuz I was at work!
Love and miss you
Traci Jo

You look beautiful! I just followed you here from your last comment on Fussy because I am nearly 35 weeks pregnant (this weekend) and 35 years old (the weekend after). Baby number 1.

Worst of all, to me, are the "Oh God! Childbirth is so painful!" comments, from people who have never had kids. Like you, I ate their heads. With pickles and ice cream.
