31 weeks??? what?!?!?!?

I can remember very clearly the days when I was so impatiently counting down the days to the ultrasound where we would find out if our little one would be a boy or a girl. So how the heck did I get to 31 weeks so quickly?!?!? I keep thinking to myself..."Wait, what?!?! We are having a baby in 9 weeks or less?!?!?" Time has passed by so extremely quickly...

Everything with Max seems to be going splendidly, and I really don't have much of anything interesting to share with you at the moment about him...but...

I have found that the more pregnant I get the more likely people are to say something outrageous and completely inappropriate to me about my ginormous belly and or the baby that has taken up residence inside of it. Just thought I would share a few of the best ones from the last couple of days:

1)This morning Nick and I went out for breakfast. I was wearing a Piggly Wiggly t-shirt and we ran into a man that Nick happens to know from back home (Wilkesboro). The man, who shall remain nameless, and whom I have never met before, reaches out and touches my belly (first of all WHO ARE YOU AND WHY DO YOU THINK IT IS OK TO TOUCH MY BELLY??). He says, "Congratulations! Looks like you are looking a little 'Piggly Wiggly!'" Gee, thanks. Not even sure what to say to you right now.

2) After breakfast we went to Target. We were in line and were only buying one item, and the lady in front of us had a buggy full. She looks at us and asks if that was all we were getting, and then lets us pass her. Then she points to my belly and says "looks like you have way more important things to worry about!" Yes, it was very nice of her to not make us have to wait 10 minutes in line behind her just for our one little item. But what does that have to do with me being pregnant? Confused. But thanks.<--this one is really not that bad, I know, but still.

I have saved the best one for last... enjoy!
3) I came across a lady yesterday that approached me and told me congratulations. She then started quizzing me about all sorts of birth related things..."have you taken a childbirth class? Are you choosing natural childbirth? Are you planning on using a Doula?"...and that does not even cover half of the embarrassing and inappropriate questions she felt the need to ask me. I guess she finally got the idea that I was not really interested in discussing such private matters with her, so she ends the conversation by saying, "I work with teen moms at my job, so every time I come across a teen mother I really feel pulled to reach out to them." EXCUSE ME. WHAT?!?!? NOT A TEEN MOTHER. 22, ALMOST 23, AND HAPPILY MARRIED. THANK YOU.


  1. Wow that last one is awesome, but only since it didn't happen to me ;)

    Some people just don't know when to shut their mouths!

  2. Holy crap, you poor girl. This IS hysterical though! Reading your blog is the best part of my evening!
