Moo.

There's nothing better to start your morning than going to the jail to interview an inmate and having the officer at the front desk ask whether the baby you are currently pregnant with is a boy or a girl. She's not confused with your previous pregnancy, because she just asked to see a picture of your eight-month-old. She laughs when you tell her you aren't expecting, and says again, "Well, you sure looked like you was in a motherly way!"

I knew I was fat, but I really didn't think I looked 5 or 6 months pregnant (at least). I guess I was wrong.

She crushed what little self-confidence I had.

I feel too gross to even be seen in public. I have GOT to lose some weight.

And you know what else? That rude bitch didn't even apologize.

When we were doing treatments, I was in the elevator in the Maternity Building after a follicle check, where the RE was so wonderfully located, and a woman asked when I was due. It was too cruel.

did you refrain from throwing something at her?

Ugggh. What is wrong with people? My diet plan consisted of postpartum depression induced anorexia-like eating habits. I wouldn't recommend it. Now that I'm feeling good and eating that weight is creeping it's way back. I've got to start walking. Or just stop eating ice cream and cheetos, whatever.

Oh hell no...didn't you just want to haul off and slap the bitch?

Sam said...

NO. WAY. I would have punched her in the taint. Because I'm nasty like that.

How awful! You look thin to me in your pictures at the pumpkin patch, but I know it's all relative. I've always been overweight and i hated when I was pregnant and people would touch my belly and I would think, "that's not the baby, that's my stomach fat being pushed up!" Ugh. I need to lose weight too.

That is so rude. What business it of hers to comment ...and then add that "Motherly bit" and not apologise.

I did ask it once to a soccer kid's mother and she gave me the death stare. Never forgave me either.

Stupid cow.

You know, some people are just too stupid to be out walking the streets & speaking to people.

You do NOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT look pregnant. I saw you 2 weeks ago. Nothing pregnant looking about your little self. In fact, I went home w/ a complex b/c you're so lean & cute.

Seriously, take a big dictionary with you the next time you're over there. And fling it at that woman!
