Pregnancy seems to bring out the best (and the worst) in people. I get the weirdest comments from people all the time. Sure I get compliments too â€“ and even the odd â€œHow are you feelingâ€, but itâ€™s the out of the blue comments that are the most entertaining.
For instance, a lady at work (that I donâ€™t know very well) said to me:
â€œOMG! Youâ€™re huge! That baby is going to come out soon! How much time do you have left?â€
Ummm .. thanks, I have 2 Â½ months to go!
Another one that irks me is:
â€œAre you going to breastfeed?â€
Isnâ€™t that rather personal? How could I possibly know for sure? Isnâ€™t that like asking a pre-pubescent girl if she plans on using tampons or pads? Like how would I know if breastfeeding is for me?
The other one I like is:
â€œFrom behind you canâ€™t even tell your pregnantâ€
Last time I checked, my uterus was at the front of my body â€“ so yeah itâ€™s not surprising that I look normal from the back.
What is it about pregnancy that makes people come out with such irrational comments? What other weird comments have you (your wife) or significant others heard?
