I'm sorry people make such rude comments. I always got the opposite responses, "Oh, you're sooo small. Something must be wrong with the baby. I'm sorry it's sick." I like your response that you already had it. And BTW, you look great. I had a friend that just began telling people (strangers mostly) that she was having twins when they made those "huge" comments. She figured she'd never see them again. Hope to hear happy news when he/she arrives.

Look them right in the eye and say, Pregnant! I'm not pregnant! I just lost 25 pounds thank you VERY much!"

-or-

Take them by the hand and in your most sincere voice say, "Thank you for noticing. I am so glad you brought it up. I am still looking for someone to adopt the triplets - I just can't manage them AND the five others I already have at home."

Hang in there! The baby will come soon, soon, soon...

You do look great--but you always look great pregnant. The first time I met you, you must have been like seven months along with Lacy and I couldn't even tell you were pregnant. You know if you are going to be "overdue", CA is the place to do it:) Miss you and am thinking of you lots.

I'm 40 weeks, 2 days today and a lady in my office told me that "maybe they got [my] due date wrong because [I] haven't dropped yet". I was sure until today that I would work until I went into labor, but I might have to start my maternity leave tomorrow out of sheer annoyance with my coworkers.
Other things I love hearing several times a day, every day:
"You're still here!"
"You're still pregnant!" (der, people.)
"You've dropped!"
"You haven't dropped yet!"

I've figured out that pregnant women are just simply PUBLIC PROPERTY.

Oh honey! I saw a friend in the grocery store two months after giving birth to my son and she asked when am I gonna have that baby. I just stared at her. What do you say to that? Ha!

I think when the baby is ready and you are reday, you WILL have a wonderful birth.

I DO think you look graceful....in the pictures I have seen.

You DO have a beautiful glow about you.

So I think you should get some face or body paint and write 'Bite Me' on your belly. When some stinker says something rotten just lift up your shirt to expose your hidden message. I am just thinkin.....:)

Oh yeah, I remember the never ending comments about how HUGE I was, especially from strangers. One when I was 34 weeks pregnant with Kent & someone said "WOW, you must be due any day now", "actually no, I have 6+ weeks to go", "you MUST be having twins then?" I wish I'd had a snappy comeback for that one.

Like I said last time, you do look great. Not huge AT ALL, just a cute round belly :)
