So I have received a few rude comments from those that I work with....my favorite is probably, "your hips are getting wide" or the "are you having twins??" comments. I'm not kidding when i say that I get at least 2 comments a day - 2 RUDE comments a day. Now I realize that I have been at my job for almost 9 years and so everyone and their mom knows that I'm pregnant. Most people also know that I used to weigh 385 pounds and lost weight but does that give them the right to make random, rude comments?? I love being pregnant (for the most part) and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world but i would be lying if I said that I didn't have a meltdown at the doc's office on Friday when I stepped on the scale. Weight gain is rough - I know it's necessary but it doesn't change the games that it plays with my head. That being said - I have come up with a few responses to the rude comments.....please leave a comment if you can think of any other good zingers to throw back at these people.
At least I’m pregnant – what’s your excuse?
I’m having a big bad boy who will come kick your ass when he’s older!
As a matter of fact, I’m having triplets so I look pretty damn good then!
I’m putting my baby up for adoption and would rather not discuss my current state (that’ll make ‘em feel bad!)
Now I want to say THANK YOU for all your comments - they made me cry on a really rough day. Like I said - Friday was not a good day. First I had to stand on the scale and see that I had gained 13 pounds in 4 weeks - the doc swears that there is no way?? I honestly haven't changed my eating from the last appointment but I haven't been exercising as much so maybe that is it?? I've also been swelling really badly so I'm thinking some of it might be water?? So yeah, I freaked out and cried and cried and cried. My poor hubby.......then the doc came in and they had a really hard time finding the heartbeat.....the longest 5 minutes of my life. That helped put the weight gain in perspective but after that appointment I was pretty wiped out. Your comments really helped me smile and made me feel so much better about myself so THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!
