Enough with the fat comments...

Ok, so I know when I first started showing I was constantly complaining about people commenting on how big my tummy was. Well, I decided that nobody wanted to hear me complain so I stopped writing about them, however, I promise you that they did not stop! So, just so you know, I am approached daily by people who feel they have a right to comment on the size of my stomach. Usually, these are not the most flattering comments. Yesterday, I was at church and I received the typical, "you are huge," "are you sure you're due in October," "is it twins?" I know that these are all said in great fun and typically I can laugh them off, however, one woman came up to me with her niece--who is due in November--and just kept going on and on about how big my belly is and how I must be so jealous of her niece who is not showing as much as I am and is only due a month after me. It took all I had to smile, nod and laugh at myself when appropriate. When I got to the car, I made Brady assure me over and over again that it is just my belly that is big and that my belly should be big because I am having a baby (stupid, I know, but this type of affirmation works with me:).

So, long story short, I am apparently becoming more sensitive the closer it gets and beware of tears if you mention the size of my stomach. Just for laughs, I thought I would post a few of my favorite comments that I hear on a regular basis and maybe a few that I have only heard once but have become classics...

"You have to be ready to pop!"

"Are you due tomorrow?"

"All three of you are here, haha!" ha..ha..ha

"You...are...huge...!" Not kidding some people really talk slowly to give emphasis to the huge.

"Whoa!" This is one of my favorites; while I hear it often, once I was walking in Jason's Deli and turned to the side and the manager who was behind me goes, "whoa, I did not see that coming" I took it as a compliment and went on my way!

"I can't believe you fit through the door!" Not kidding, a guy at QuikTrip thought he was being funny...

"Don't worry, I gained over 60 lbs when I was pregnant." This wouldn't be so bad if she wouldn't have said it when I was only 6 months along and 12 lbs heavier...

"Were you a big baby?"

There are others, but these are the ones I hear most often. You wouldn't believe how many people feel like they can comment on your size.

Closing words...
Pregnant women are sensitive, tell them they are glowing and look cute, but never tell them they are huge!

Best Shower Ever!!!

So....I have the best best friend in the world! Jamie and Heather threw me an incredible baby shower complete with "bug" mementos everywhere! I just feel so blessed to have such great friends. We had such a fun weekend because some of the girls came down from KC on Saturday to celebrate Heather's birthday so I had a party at my house. It was so good to see everyone! Jamie, Meg, Katy and Allie definitely rocked it out on guitar hero (I got booed off the stage three times, I swear the buttons are weird), and everyone else just hung around and ate lots of food (thank goodness, I was afraid I would have lots of leftovers).

I have to also thank everyone for wearing out Piper! My cute little dog has more energy than anything I have ever seen, but luckily after everyone was there keeping her occupied, she slept through the night--wahoo!! I have to especially thank Wendy and Corbin, they had her running from one end of the house to the other like a madwoman (ok, so this isn't that far because my house is tiny)!

Sunday was my shower and it was awesome!! Jamie and Heather came up with an idea to have everyone write down advice and to bring a bead to string. Now, I have a whole book full of great advice and quotes as well as a string of bead that I can use to relieve stress during labor. They told me that it is to remind me of all the strong women who are a part of my life--isn't that awesome?!?

I have such good friends and they helped prepare Brady and I by getting us stuff we will definitely need after the bug is born. I can't lie, I was sort of afraid I wouldn't even know how to use most of it, but I think we figured it out! I am also slightly-but not really-embarrassed to admit that brady and I played with one of the toys for quite a while after I got home. Seriously, you have to try some of these things in the store and you will know why!
