Being that this is my 5th pregnancy, I told myself I would try not worry about how I look and just enjoy being pregnant. I know how my body carries babies and sometimes there is nothing I can do about my weight gain or growing butt. It's hard seeing my body change but I am trying to concentrate on the baby growing inside me. I usually worry to much about each pound I gain that I rob myself of the joy.
Well Felix isn't helping me enjoy my pregnancy!
Come on people...... as if pregnant women aren't sensitive enough!
At my doctors appointment the other day: Good ol' Felix (the nurse practitioner) just had to make a point.....
Felix: "Can you come back out here so we can weigh you again?"
Bridget: "Oh, ok let me just get out of this paper gown and put back on my clothes."
Felix: "Wow! I guess that was right. You did gain alot of weight the last month. I
just had to make sure. "
Bridget: (In my head thinking) errr.......(" Thanks! for making a big deal of it. As if the 1st time seeing it wasn't bad enough."
Felix: " You should only be gaining 1lb a week."
Bridget: "It's because I have my shoes on"
Felix: " No, I think you enjoyed too much Easter candy"
Bridget: smirky smile......(in my head) "looks like you did too"
After coming home from the doctors appointment. I told my husband what happened and how much I have gained...
Bridget: "Can you believe they made me stand on the scale twice?"
Justin: "Well how much did you gain?"
Bridget: " What! I'm not telling you......ok find I gained 25lbs total so far. I know it's alot but I always gain this much the baby is going through a big growth spurt right now"
Justin: "Not to imply anything, but I don't think the baby weighs twenty five pounds."
Bridget:.......runs to room crying
Why do men think it's funny to mess with their wives when they are pregnant?
Here are some of my favorites that people have said to me during my pregnancies: (well not my fav's but you know)......
Are your ankles supposed to look like that?
Geez, you're awfully puffy looking today.
That color makes you look *really* big.
Don't you know your not suppose to wear vertical stripes?
I delivered at 121 lbs and I was two weeks late.
You couldn't get any bigger.
Are you still with all your babies' daddies?
You finally look pregnant in your face!
You've got that waddle thing going on.
I only gained 12lbs during my pregnancy. I walked in had
the baby and wore my jeans home.
I never had to wear maternity clothes.
It's because it's your 5th pregnancy you look like that.
You look to big to be due in July.
Are you sure your not carrying twins?
Yep, its a girl you can tell by your butt.
It happens when your carrying girls they suck the beauty out of you.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who has heard rude comments while they were pregnant. What are some comments you've gotten while pregnant?
