i expect certain quirks to come about now that i’m largely pregnant. funny how it’s the things i don’t expect that irk me to death.
now, i’ve never been pregnant (no, you don’t say!) & i’ve never weighed this much. so, yes. i’m large. but i notice and have been assured that most of this weight has stayed in front of me- my belly. (grant it, right now, i bet my feet weigh about 40 pounds alone!) but i get so irked by one of my coworkers, who incidentally is the only one to have been pregnant before. i see her daily. and every so often, she likes to point out how large i am!
doesn’t help that i’ve been asked told on more than one occasion: wow! you’re about to pop, right? my response: no, actually, i have 8 weeks, 7 weeks left….. *gasp!
that kinda irks me. i have had a small handful of people tell me that i look “good” or “small”… i wanna hang out w/ these people.
one thing that irked me recently: a lady was visiting at work. she actually happened to be there talking to the coworker who talks about how huge i am. anyway, as you all know we don’t know what little bean is… and everyone always asks. THIS lady, however didn’t ask. she said with a slight question mark: you’re having a boy? and i said, no that we’re not sure… and she then DECLARED no. you’re having a boy.
The Mr. & i don’t really have much of a preference. so it would be fine if that was the case. but it irked me the way she said it. almost as if a warning & i told you so in the same breath. i know it’s fun/customary for people to guess what we’re having. and i’ve had more “boys” come my way than “girls”… but really it could be anything…. now i hope i have a girl JUST to spite her!!!
especially since i don’t have a feeling either way, it bugs me that she said it like that. The Mr. has a feeling it’s a boy. I have no feeling. I think a big reason he has this idea is from this early post. he came to me afterwards and said: “all i gots to say is: did that look like a sweet little girl or a rambunctious boy?” but i’ve read lotsa message boards where moms complain about the girls’ movements. so, i know it can be anything….. and it’ll be fun to find out.
i guess i have one good thing to say: at least i haven’t YET to get a stranger rub my belly!
