So the random comments I get from people these days just crack me up. I went to the mall at lunch today and heard two distinctly different comments.
First was the lady in Ann Taylor Loft who is due in February. She asked me when I was due and when I said “December” her mom was like DECEMBER!!!! She asked me if it was my first and when I say yes, she said, “Oh that totally explains it. You are so small and I was pretty teeny with my first but I’m blowing up with this one.”
Then I head to Hallmark and the cashier asks me when I’m due. I say “December.” She says “Lordy child, you might have that baby way before December.” So she’s indicating that apparently I’m huge. WTF? Which is it?
I have to say, at this point, I just laugh. I FEEL huge, but know that from most of the people I talk to, I’m all belly and could be a lot bigger than I currently am. Yesterday the random lady at the gas station was telling me all about the joys of giving birth etc. And then today, I had at least two other women chatting with me about when I’m due, if I’m nervous, giving advice. Totally amazing that so many randoms are drawn to the belly. Am I going to do this after he’s born?
