Preferred Comments

Here I am, working on my 28th week. I've always noticed that some comments are a little easier to hear than others. Here's my small compilation:

You sure are blossoming, huh?
So, when do you pop?
Wow! You're getting on out there!
"Hi, I'm so and so. Oh that's right, I've met you before. You're just so much bigger than last time I saw you."

Seriously, people really do say these things.

My personal fav: "Oh.. wow."

Then silence.

That's all you have to say? Is it that shocking that people get pregnant and have children?

Kristen said...

You look great!!! How's that for a comment??? :) You really do. Wish we were closer. Take care!

The worst for me was when I was almost 9 months along and I came around a corner at work and almost ran into my boss and got. "Whoa, I thought that was a beach ball coming around the corner!"...great...thanks!

Kristy said...

I think you look great! Healthy and glowing--just like you should be! It's getting closer... :)

JSM said...

I agree, you do look great! How many have asked if they can touch your belly? {or do they simply stick their hands on you?} :)

Let's see....what should an old guy say? I normally try to be funny, but that might come across as insulting. I know how to be charming, but that might sound like a cyber-stalker. Hmmm. Your fireplace is lovely and your hair is beautiful. How is that? Now, can I touch your belly?

You look so pretty, Jamey! You really do. I remember all of those "sweet" comments. :) Imagine the looks and comments you get when you say "yeah, there's three in there". :) People thought I was ready to deliver at about 20 weeks. Funny, funny! Well, I'm excited for ya'll and happy it's a boy! Hey, I started a blog. It's www.morrowtriplets.blogspot.com. The old website expired. You'll have to check it out. I miss ya'll!

You're beautiful!!! It's a great picture!

Sunny said...

You look so good!!!

I can't believe what people actually say! Just let it all go in one ear and out the other.

Wow...some people are just so awkward around pregnant women! You need to ask Ashley about the comment/contact she got from someone at church last week. It's classic. :-)

and as beckoned by laura (and even though youve already heard it) at least someone didn't pull back on your dress to see your tummy and then say "are you????"
Me: Pregnant? yes. and lucky for you I am!

Supabloggasuprememama said...

in fact, im putting that on my blog right now..

Amy said...

You are a pretty momma!! My favorite comment was "You are looking outstanding" I could take that one much easier then- "are you having twins!"

Jamey,
I am glad to know that other people feel the same way I do. You look great in that picture!

It seems that everytime I go to church, someone asks me how much longer I have. When I tell them 3 months, they act like they can't believe it. I want to say, do I look like I am gonna pop just any minute or something? I know that I am a lot bigger this time than I was with Easton, but come on....give a girl a break!

Love and miss you guys!
Shelley
