1 // “I’ve delivered two babies before, I might need to deliver another today.”
note: I still had about two and a half months to go at the time of this comment
2 // “You have really gotten big!”
from an older man I must have said hi to before at the gym
3// “You should have an ambulance on speed dial.”
I sure hope not, because I still have 7 weeks left
4// “That’s what you get for screwing around.”
It took me too long to process this one and I didn’t turn around to see what weight-lifter snarled it.
5// “How are the two of you doing today?”
This was the nicest of comments from the sweetest grandpa at the gym
6// “Oh is the baby moving? I really love getting to feel babies move around.”
Sorry old man I haven’t met before, not going to happen.
7// “When is he (Lincoln) going to be a big brother? Tomorrow?”
No, not for another month and a half.
8// “She’s about to explode!” (in a not so quiet whisper, to somebody else as I walked by)
If by explode you mean have a baby next month, yes, yes I am.
It is interesting to note that in counting the responses from women in the past week, 90% of them have been, “you’re all baby” or “congratulations, when are you due?” In contrast, the large majority of men have commented exclusively on my size. For some of these I wish I could go back and have a response. What would you have said?
Only six weeks to go!
outfit note: We snapped these before we headed to Europe and the shirt (and maybe the shoes?) are the only things that still fit. The top is one of my all-time favorite maternity pieces from Seraphine and it works for nursing too! The quality is fantastic and it is perfectly soft + stretchy (but not too thin). My leather jacket is super old, the jeans are from Paige (also very old and kept on with the old elastic trick), the shoes are Steve Madden from last year and my bracelet is Kate Spade.
