Seriously?

So. I was at a friend's cube yesterday gossiping about various items, mostly being the nursery, the fact that I'm due in 16 weeks, and the amount of work to be ready to have 3 children (like you can ever REALLY be ready, but anyway). He was suggesting I don't spend so much time in the house - which is a good point. When you sit there and see all the work and you really can't do much about it until you have a block of time, it's stressful to see it. Once Hulk can go swimming again, I think we'll be heading to the lake to go swimming after work - he thought that was great fun.

Anyway. The girl that sits next to him turns and says - did I miss something? You are pregnant!?

Um. Yeah. With twins.

So I went and took a picture of the belly and the outfit I was wearing. Did she seriously just think I was unfortunately pot bellied? Now I'm nervous that I look just fat and not pregnant. Sigh.

No, no, that is clearly pregnant. Some people are just that stupid.

Sam said...

nah - you very definitely look pregnant!! Some people are just clueless about what's around them!! Just ask hubby next time you have a hair cut!! ha ha!!

Deborah said...

It's possible it didn't occur to her because, you know, you just HAD a baby. But yes, you definitely look pregnant.

Megan said...

No question- you look pregnant. I agree that perhaps she is shocked that since you just had a baby that you are pregnant again.

You definitely look pregnant. No question.

I had a coworker say that to me on the DAY before I left for maternity leave. Seriously, I was at 38 weeks! And I'd emailed out two separate messages about my upcoming leave! She claimed that I only looked pregnant "from certain angles" which is... odd......

What a moron! It's very obvious that you're pregnant.

You look adorably pregnant.

But I do have to speak up on behalf of the "morons" who don't notice bumps since I tend to be in that category. In fact, twice I have failed to notice 8-month-sized-bumps and this past week I made a new friend who I thought looked like she was just out of her first trimester. Turns out that she's 40 weeks and counting ... so maybe some of just have a mental block to seeing bumps. But you still look great!

She was being witchy. You look pregnant and as long as you are feeling well and your doc is happy, forget her.

You do not look fat, but pregnant.

Oh, and I had that same shirt when I was pregnant ;)

Duh. Maybe she never leaves her Hobbit hole.

what a moron, you so look pregnant to me and everyone else. I used to get the comments like, 'you look 5 months pregnant' when i was 8 1/2, So annoying.

I can't believe you only have 4 months left then 3 babies, but you'll have little girls, how nice!

I'm enjoying my little man, montherhood is such hard work, but so rewarding!
