Massive...not a good word to use.

Remember when I still have about 3 more months to be pregnant, but everywhere I go people literally say, "Oh my god, you are HUGE!! I didn't know you were due this month." Or "How is your body going to last 3 more months...you are MASSIVE!" (Massive and huge are not exaggerations of the truth, they are actually the two words people use to describe me most frequently.) They then try to cover up their obvious blunder by saying something like , "but you still look then." or "Your arms are nice and thin still." Duh, who when they get pregnant (except those who gain a very large amount of weight) gains a ton of weight in their arms?? Seriously people. One guy last week was standing behind me in line at the store. When I turned around to look at something he gasped (literally) and said "Oh my gosh...you are SO pregnant!! That's so... so...cute." Thanks. You can't say cute after you're so shocked by my size that you stop breathing for a second. I really don't mind being big and prego, but huge and massive are rather strong words to describe someone.

One a positive note...our baby girl is getting so big. She is probably around 2 1/2 pounds and now her chances of survival if she is born sometime soon have gone way up. She has like a 90% survival rate and only a 30% chance of having a major disability (she still has a pretty big chance of having quite a few minor disabilities). Another good things is that even though in the past month this week has been the worst for my contractions , I still haven't been to the hospital since the 24Th of May! She is also big enough now for others to feel hand moving kicks and actually she my stomach do major flip flops...next time I am with you ask if she's moving and I will let you meet her. I am so thankful that God has blessed my family and my precious little girl so much.

Next time a stranger says something like that you should act really offended and claim that you are not pregnant. Just to see what they say.

Brahim.... do you REALLY think that Jones wants a sister for his birthday? I think not... I'm just sayin...

and you should totally just tell them that it's a tumor and you've got 2 months to live....

When I make Gina the tee shirt I told her I would, I'll make you one too: it will stop all the gawking.

The Shirt of Shirts will say:

"I'm pregnant, what's your excuse??"

Gina said...

Pleasepleaseplease say you're not pregnant! And do it when I'm around to see the reaction!

P.S. Why is someone I've never met making me a hilarious t-shirt. Doesn't he know I'm not pregnant anymore? Maybe he can't tell I'm not...(Oooooh! Burn! On myself...)

Gina said...

Ty just told me that he doesn't want you to name her India because the name reminds him of a stripper he once knew back in the 40s.

No wait.

Maybe that was a song about a stripper from the 40s.

Or in her forties.

Take your pick.

Ty said...

Gina, I hate you SOOOOOOO much. I think it was a forties' song, but maybe I have the wrong country. Any way, naming a kid the same name as a country seems a little dangerous, if you don't believe me just ask little Afghanistan Smith, I bet his life has been pretty miserable.

P.S. yes, please follow Gina's suggestion and tell people that you're not about to pop (even if she does make me look bad).
