So today at work one of our nurse/ surgical assists came around the corner and bumped into me. When she took in my belly she got really wide- eyed and said "oh, your belly is really growing there!" To which I casually responded "Yep, it gets bigger every week." I was smiling...
So then she asks "when are you due again?" and as soon as I said "October" the look on her face changed from a grin to a horrified grimace. "Wow, just wow! You still have a long way to go then huh?"
Um... WTF is that supposed to mean? Apparently in her eyes I am already a ginormous whale. I wonder what she is going to say in another month or two when I ACTUALLY start to get big? Too bad I've only gained 7 lbs in the last 20 weeks... I guess that doesn't count for much in my overly large preggo state.
(PS in her defense I usually wear scrubs which hide the belly A LOT. Today I had a conference to attend so I wore "professional" maternity clothes which kind of accentuate the belly... but STILL... why make that kind of comment? It's just plain RUDE!)
Can we say hormones anyone?
