Strange lady at the gym: “When are you due?” … “Oh, really?! You look like you are going to POP now!” stranger lady.
Why would you ever make the above comments to a bulging, HUGE, uncomfortable pregnant lady?! Clearly she knows she is huge by the waddle you see. Clearly she feels uncomfortable when she is holding her belly to try and lighten the weight a bit. Clearly she is exhausted from carrying an extra 30 pounds (come on let’s be honest) around. Clearly she is not in the mood for your comments!
I had my first comments above the other day, and I am not even 30 weeks pregnant!! The lady (yes, it was a woman) asked me “when I was due” and the only response I could think of to say was “not soon enough!” Lady, I have a little less than 3 months left!! A long time! I just get huge when I am pregnant – thank you for noticing how big and uncomfortable I look.
So… the next time you think or want to ask a pregnant woman how far she is or when she is due – don’t! Instead, please just say a little prayer for her that she feels better than she obviously looks.
