the comments have began...

Warning...vent post ahead...

I was at the park today with Charley, a friend and her daughter. And a random old lady at the park said "so when is the baby due?" and I responded with about 5 weeks and she said "there is no way you are making it that long!" thanks lady.

Another lady there asked me the same question and was very polite about it and wished me good luck.

Then I have been having those people like the wonderful lady at Noodles and Company when I went there for lunch who assumed I wanted the large size meal instead of the small I usually get - and when she rang it up and I asked why it was so much she said "feed that baby" REALLY?!

And then there was the lady at PetSmart - who called someone from the back and told me to wait for them to get there to put my dog food in my car for me - and when this "someone" arrived, he was like 70 years old and frail. C'mon lady - I didn't ask for help and if I needed help couldn't you have gotten some hot young guy to come and help me? So needless to say Jimmy is doing all of the dog food shopping for the next 5 weeks.

Sorry for the vent - but I'm pregnant not disabled - and yes my stomach is large, but there is a kid in there!! And I seem to not make small children and I am about 5'10 1/2" so I'm not little - but there is really no need for comments.

I go out and take our three 85lb dogs for nightly walks TOGETHER - so over 250lbs of dog - and me every night so I can hold my own people!! Flipping a bag of dog food from the cart to my car, picking up my daughter to put her on the teeter totter (yes the same old lady asked if I needed help picking up my daughter...), or ordering what size food I want - I am all capable of doing myself - so please keep the comments to yourself. Oh and I have had 1/2 a glass of sangria and a few sips of beer - and SUSHI three times while I have been pregnant...so leave me alone!!

sorry again...needed to vent.

I would get so mad when my mother in law would act like I could not do anything. hey - I know what my limits are and I can carry that box to the car! Good thing she lives in New Jersey and I only saw her one time while I was pregnant.

Just be happy your pregnant. I know SO many ladies who keep haing m/c and it's terrible to hear someone complain about their pregnancy.

She's not complaining about being pregnant, she's annoyed that people seem to be confusing disabled with pregnant.
