Every time I have been pregnant the crazy things people will say to me never ceases to amaze me. Just this past weekend as I was attending a conference I had one of the older waitresses approach me and completely catch me off guard.
Cocktail Waitress – “Oh dear, YOU are having a boy!”
Me – “Um, what? No, no, I’m having a girl.”
Waitress – “Are you sure?”
Me- “Yep, having a girl.”
Waitress – “Well then why are you carrying so high?”
DUDE! I don’t know. because I have a short torso and where else I’m I suppose to carry a growing human being? On my butt?
I decided to ask some of my favorite Mom’s for their crazy stories. I mean it could just be me could it?

Inconsiderate Idiot – “Wow, you must be due any day now!”
Beth – “I’m only 25 weeks.”
Beth also had a funny story that happened to a friend of hers while they were at work. Beth who happened to be in her early 2o’s, was with a fellow co-worker who happened to be pregnant when her bosses husband walked up and how far along the friend was.
“Your 30 weeks? Ohhhh, your at that no more sex stage, huh?”
Beth and friend proceeded to die right there one the spot.

The worst one was when someone told me that I will poop while pushing during delivery. I went into labor 2 weeks early and the night before I had Mexican food for dinner (clearly did not plan for that). I had such anxiety at the thought the entire delivery that I would poop all over the table … and I didn’t. Whew!
Why do people insist on telling expecting Moms that everyone poops on the table? This is one thing we do not need to think about!

When I was pregnant with my firstborn I wasn’t married, so obviously I didn’t have a ring.
