Conversations with a Pregnant Girl

I think 90% of my most recent conversations could be eliminated if I had a T-shirt made that said the following:

I'm due November 5

No, I am not having twins

It's a girl

Her name is Abigail

Yes, we will call her Abby

No, we haven't decided on a middle name

Yes, I am sure it's not twins

Don't get me wrong, I like talking about my pregnancy and I like that people are curious, but it does get a little repetative.

It also makes me laugh at the things people are willing to say to pregnant ladies that they would never dare say to a non-pregnant lady*


"You were carrying all in your belly before, but now I can totally tell in your face that you are pregnant"

(oh well thank you - I was waiting for someone to compliment me on my fat face!)

"Wow - look at your ankles!! You are SO swolen!!"

(yes, yes I am)

"Is there really a baby in there or did you just eat too much food?"

(haha, okay this was said by a 5 year old - but still funny!)

"You look so uncomfortable!"

(awww - thanks for noticing!)

"I bet you are headed to the bathroom aren't you!"

(yes, anytime you see me walking, I am going to the bathroom)

*I haven't been offended by any of these comments, I just find it humourous people are willing to say these things just because I am pregnant.

36 Weeks!!

Yes people that is right. I am 36 weeks along (almost 37) meaning this little girly could be here - which is just completely beyond insane to me.

Was it not just a short month ago I was staring at *ahem* three positive pregnancy tests in shock and awe as reality set in that I was carrying a small peanut sized human in my uterus? Yikes.


Other than feeling like a whale every time I try to roll over in bed, stretch marks setting in and some unmentionable pain.... things are still going pretty awesome. Don't get me wrong, the 9th month does have its drawbacks* but I am excited just to see and hold this little girl more than I am feeling like I just want it to be over.

*What drawbacks you ask? Well... let me tell you.

We are all familiar with the layout of the average public bathroom stall

(See Diagram 1 - Bathroom Stall)


Door, toilet, toilet paper container, sometimes a little trash can.

Simple and harmless... unless you are 9 months pregnant in which case such a generic simple place becomes a DEATH TRAP.

(See Diagram 2 - Pregnant lady STUCK IN THE STALL)


I know you are lauging but no joke this has happened to me (more than once!) in the past month. Between my belly, the toilet, and the ill placed toilet paper dispenser, I cannot open the stall door enough to get out.

This is a problem. Hopefully one that will be resolved soon.
