I Need This

Today I have a couple of things to get off my chest.

To the people who just noticed that I look pregnant. No, it does not feel good for you to say to me "My gosh, you have really popped!" or "You look so much bigger than the last time I saw you!" I AM ALMOST SEVEN MONTHS PREGNANT. I LOOK LIKE A PREGNANT PERSON IS SUPPOSED TO LOOK.

To be fair, the Hoos "forgets" that I am pregnant. When I say I am tired or it takes me a few extra seconds to straighten my back out after getting up from playing on the floor with LP, he asks if I am okay. I AM FINE. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE PREGNANT. (I know this sounds harsh, but I AM PREGNANT.)

Oh, and to my brain: Dude, it is okay to stop running at times. Because despite the fact that I "went to bed" at 9:30 last night, I did not sleep. It wasn't that you, Brain, were thinking about anything important or any of the items that are making me anxious (like fitting a zillion different plans into one weekend and preparing Bun's room and getting new furniture for LP's room) and coming up with brilliant solutions, rather you just ran in circles about nothing. Thanks for that.

I am still tired and cranky, but now I feel a little better for venting. It also helps that my bunny munchkin loves to give group hugs now and I keep envisioning us having a four-person group hug once little Bun arrives. That will feel good.

That hug will feel great! Second baby changes so much!

I totally hear you on the preggo comments. Are these intelligent commentators co-workers? Maybe you could file a harassment suit! Ha!

Note to AmyBow, if people are just noticing your belly now, Mamma, you are soooo looking good. I'm already a-popping at four months! (this comment written as I consider preparing a second chicken salad sandwich for myself and my bun!)

And I thought for sure you'd be complaining about the stupid assignment I gave you this morning. Obviously you have many more stupid (much stupider?) things to complain about.

Not to blow off your feeling, but gurrlll, puhlease, you are the cutest pregnant person ever. And I'm not just saying that because you're my friend.

Tell the dipwads to suck it.

Have you ever seen the Baby Blues cartoon where the couple are sitting on the couch. Her thought bubble has 19 million things in it (laundry, pack lunches, unload dishwasher, schedule doctor's appt., etc.) and his has 1 thought (pie)? Yeah, it's like that!

People really are amazingly insensitive. They never cease to amaze me.

Jenn @ Juggling Life - hilarious! And true. :)
