Why is it people think just because you are pregnant you have no feelings? (You really don't have to answer that...I'm well aware I'm overly sensitive...especially now)
For the last month or so I have heard many comments about me "being ready to pop". I guess you could say these comments have taken a toll on me, I've heard enough. Today I snapped!
In order to get my hours in before Friday I worked the last three days in a row(12 hour shifts). I'm not kidding when I say at least 30 people asked if I was having twins. Really people, I'm gonna have a baby any day, I'm still working, I'm well aware I have a waddle that can be seen from a mile away, I feel like crap, do you think you need to ask that question? Do you think that makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside?
So today after about the fifth person asked me that very question, I did something I shouldn't have done. Here's how it went down:
Rude Lady: Hi, I'm here to draw labs on the patient in room....WOW look at you! When are you due?
Me: In two days!!!
Rude Lady: Man, are there two in there?
Me: Nope, just one but thanks for letting me know you think I'm huge. Would you like to go step on the scale and measure which one of us weighs more?
Rude Lady: (speechless)
Me: And I'm nine months pregnant(as I walked away to go cry in the bathroom)!
Word to the wise...The less you say to a pregnant woman the better off you are.
