You know, I'm wondering why people seem to think it's ok to insult a pregnant person to their face, and actually think it's ok.
Like...seriously, I wouldn't go up to a fat person and say "Holy Shit, you're fat, do they make a scale big enough for you?"
I wouldn't go up to a blind person and say "Did you just see that car drive by?!?!"
Fuck off people.
Lastnight at the casino 4 people had something to say about my size...that's right, 4.
One actually laughed, one just stood back and said "Whoa" as I walked by, one said they didn't know i could get so big, and another asked if was sure it was only one.
What makes it ok to say things so rude, and to my face at that?

People are idiots. There's nothing you can even say to people like that.

Here's one for you ... the week before Brenna was born, I got on an elevator at work and as the doors closed, the guy in the elevator made the comment to me that my baby must be due any day. I looked him dead in the eyes and said, "I'm not pregnant!" The look of horror on his face was priceless!
