You would think it is a no brainer, but for some reason, many people seem to lose their brains when you tell them you are pregnant. Especially with your third child.
Their responses? Well, they can burn.
I’m hoping it’s not their intention, and that they just aren’t thinking.
But, when I tell you I’m pregnant, here are some responses that I deem “What not to say!”
And, my snarky response? No, not really. I’m joking. Isn’t that hilarious.
“Was this planned…I didn’t know if I should say congrats or sorry.”
I can’t even think of a snarky response here. I’m a happily married woman. Would you really say “sorry” to me when I tell you I’m pregnant? Wow. Wow!
And, my all time favorite:
“Were you trying for a boy?” (Right along the lines of these “cute” comments and questions.)
Really, no response. Well, a little one. We truly want a healthy baby. Boy or girl. Girl or boy. Honestly. Really, I am serious!
Again, while people might not realize their questions are hurtful (and I don’t think they intentionally are), I’m at the point where I don’t want to tell people at work because I’m tired on the responses.
Without further ado, I present to you Serious Baby #3. These were taken 4 weeks ago, and then I lazily took a picture of them instead of scanning them.
With a cute little nose, and that little hand and fingers waving hello.
We love you Baby Serious #3, and we know you will be here in our house before you know it!
