I don't use my blog to rant.
Forgive me for breaking my own rule today.
When did it become okay to tell a pregnant woman personal opinions and observations about her weight? Was this acceptable at some point in history? Is this one of those things that has gone to the wayside with a more politically correct society, yet some older folks still think it's okay to say any damn thing that comes to their mind when they see a pregnant woman?
In the past month, in no particular order, these comments have been directed towards me:
-Don't worry, you look good fat.
-You're more HUGE every day!
-You've really spread out with this pregnancy.
Awesome. But not really.
I present the only acceptable things to say to a woman that is already feeling insecure about her growing body:
-You look stunning!
-You need to eat, can I buy you some icecream?
-You are radiant- you glow!
-How lucky is this baby?!
I am confident that those comments will prevent a preggo from bursting into tears and having a meltdown upon looking in the mirror.
Thank you. I am done. I am off to reclaim some of my dignity and get over myself.
