I am now exactly 35 weeks, 5 days pregnant, so I have roughly one more month of pregnancy bliss. One more month in which to frantically prepare for the coming of this sweet bundle of joy. Actually, aside from packing my bag for the hospital, I am pretty much prepared. I have had a serious case of nesting syndrome for the last few months, so I think we are good to go. This has been a relatively easy pregnancy (if you count aches and pains and lots of heartburn "easy"). I have enjoyed most aspects of it, but there is one major thing I will not be sad to leave behind once the baby comes, and it is this: really strange/insensitive/redundant remarks and/or questions about this pregnancy. So, I have decided to make up some t-shirts that should put an end to the crazy comments. Here are a few of the sayings I will be putting on the t-shirts:
Hands off the gut!!
No, I am NOT having twins.
Yes, I know I am "great with child." That little phrase wasn't funny the first time and it isn't funny now.
If you use the words "huge," "enormous," "gargantuan," "behemoth" in my presence, you better have good reflexes.
Please do not share birthing horror stories with me. I just ate.
Wide load coming through. Please make way.
None of the following is any of your business:
the baby's name
how much weight I have gained
whether I will breast feed
Got a death wish? Call me hormonal.
Just lie and say I look nice.
No comments about my size, ok?
And this one is especially for my kids and husband:
Pick up your own dang socks. I can't bend over.
