Oh, thanks....

...I didn't think I could feel any more self conscious!

Yesterday, I was feeling pretty good!! So, I made it to Cubbies which was such a blessing, but it is a challenge because, being secretary, I have to climb up and down 4 flights of stairs multiple times making copies etc. Anyway, I had just gotten to the top of the stairs and huffed and puffed my way to the office where one of my friends says "Hey, how are ya feelin' ? HUGE huh?"...Ok, the week before last the comment from the same person was "Are you having twins?! WOW". The audacity of people never ceases to amaze me. I know I feel huge, but I am on the small side of average both pregnant and not...so I don't know why some people insist on making me feel like I am just a huge beast....those of you who know me know I am not a large person ....*sniff* *sniff*...I mean (whiny -I'm gonna cry- voice starts in) I feel awful as it is...*start to sob and whine to violin music*...WAHAAAAAAAAAHAAAA ...Ok, I'm over it...;) Who cares what she thinks (or wants to make me think she thinks) YES...I love being 31 because since I have left my 20s I could care less and less what people think! :)

Okay, I FEEL your pain. When I was pregnant with my first son, I only gained about 18-20 pounds, and he was almost 10 pounds of that. For about 4-6 before I delivered--EVERYONE--constanly said "you've not had that baby yet", WOW! You are huge. Okay, Thanks, you have a great day too.
People, they just don't think sometimes. I'm sure you look great, don't sweat it. Just think of the "prize" when it is all over.

Heather...I'm glad you have a sense of humor...those kinds of remarks can really go deep sometimes. I think you're a very cute pregnant girl! I can't believe you can climb 4 flights of stairs! I have trouble with one flight and I'm not even pregnant! :0 Have a great day...

Lots of love...Karen

Okay, Heather, now it's my turn. ;) I've seen you pregnant enough times to know that you are always beautiful and glowing right at the end of your pregnancy and also that your tummy stays pretty small until right near the end... so it's probably just ridiculous people actually noticing that baby tummy now. :) You are the girl who can have a baby and be in church in regular clothes with a completely flat stomach a week later! ;D

Do you know what I would give to look the way you do when you're pregnant? I look like a whale when I'm pregnant. That lady is just insecure so she picked on the easiest target...the pregnant girl. You at 9 months = me at 7 months. Poo Poo on her!!!
Love,
Tobi

You ladies are so nice to me (((hug)))...and Tobi, you may have "felt" that way...but you "looked" great, you really did. And Ashleigh, believe me when I say....this pregnancy, sooo not glowing, but it is almost over :), and it's ok, really. I know everything goes back pretty much the same..looking forward to that. Love you all!!

YOU HUGE? I THINK NOT! I have always LOVED Mishel's comment about you..that your babies are bigger than you are! You are just so cute Heather and I saw the belly picture..um..no twins..what are you 4 months preggo? I look like that way before 5 months and at 9 months. I LOOK LIKE I AM HAVING 15 babies! So you look great!

And I feel for you with the skin blotchies..want my spot remover? I still have the tube from last time..it took almost a year to get rid of it! Weird huh? If its not on your nose..you can always darken it and say its a beauty mark. OK its late and I am getting silly..you know how I get! HA HA!
