things you don't say to a pregnant woman...

Last time I was pregnant, I didn't experience this as much. But now that I'm pregnant again, I've come into contact with a few people that have no filters. I know they're not being mean or rude, they just don't think before they say these things. Here are the top few things that I've heard:

1. "Wow, are you sure you're not having twins." (Coworker)
2. "Man, you sure look like you're about to pop." (Different Coworker)
3. "Aren't you so cute and lumpy." (An old lady who teaches one of our children's Sunday School classes)
4."Well you sure have blossomed." (Church member)
5. *This is probably my favorite. I was talking to that same Sunday School teacher about moving into our new house and she said: "Keri, please don't make Jonathon carry you over the threshold. "

Fun times! It really didn't make me mad, I just laughed. Bc really, what can you say to them. But if you ever have the urge to say one of these things to a pregnant woman, please don't. :)

Oh, girl...you are so much sweeter than I am! Haha!! I have given so many people the STINK EYE when they share their opinion! Here are a few I've heard in the last couple of weeks:

"You are going to have a BIG baby!"

Um...I'm guessing that means you think I'm huge? Awesome, thanks!

"All this heat sure is making your face swell!"

Maybe it's because I'm 9 months pregnant, skank...and because MAYBE i ate a lot of chips and salsa last night.

"You look like you're about to have this baby today!"

...I don't even know what to say to that one! Haha!

Good luck sticking it out through this miserable heat!! So ready to be not pregnant! :)
