…while 9 months pregnant.
I’ve compiled a list, the best of my abilities. I have a horrible memory at this point in the game. But, man, all of the questions…the same questions over and over. I got punchier and punchier with each one, too! I just wanted to sit and enjoy my lunch and the time with my hubby, but everybody kept asking and asking.
So, when are you due?
In two weeks
On the 16th….to which the response was “of this month?” No, I’m having an elephant…the 16th of July!!!
(After telling the woman I’m due in less than 2 weeks.) Have you found out what you are having, yet?
Like I’m going to find out now?
So, you are waiting until the last minute?
Um, yes, if you mean when the baby is born.
Have you been sick at all?
So just a little bit, then?
Couldn’t even answer this one.
Did you swallow a watermelon?
Why, yes, yes, I did. You don’t do that regularly?
How far along are you?
I just told them, over and over again, I’m due in two weeks.
Favorite follow up comment…wow, you look great, only two weeks?
Thanks, I feel huge, my butt is ginormous, I have to pee every 20 minutes and I can’t breath!
What are you having?
We don’t know.
Oh, you weren’t able to find out?
No, we want to be surprised?
Oh, I couldn’t do that, I’m such a planner.
Well, so am I, but we wanted to be surprised.
(I mean no harm to the people that find out/found out what they were having, we just wanted to be surprised. It’s amazing, you can still plan for a baby, even if you don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl!)
Next time, my response was “We didn’t find out on purpose?”
Then, it was “a boy or a girl.”
Then, I just walked away. (Not really, but I’m pretty sure I gave a clear indication that our conversation was over).
How many other kids do you have?
Boy or a girl?
Oh, so then, you want a boy?
Pretty sure I didn’t say that.
How old is she?
She’ll be 2 on the 14th.
How many more do you want, or are you done?
I’m sorry, we just met, right?
Next time, I’ll get the sitter and go have a nice relaxing date with the hubby. I know that most of the people meant no harm, but it was really tough being grilled for 2 hours straight!
Can you tell I’m ready for this baby to pop out?
Also, thank you all for your prayers and following up. My platelets at last testing were 112,000, so it looks like I’m in the clear for an epidural!!!
