I want to preface this by saying that I LOVE being pregnant, and most people (I won't name which particular family member is known to be insulting sometimes) have been genuinely awesome and nice, repeatedly telling me how great I look! Until now.
So it finally happened today, an insulting comment from a clueless stranger, a woman who has clearly never been pregnant. I stopped at Earthfare this morning to pick up an orange juice, since we were out at home (and while I was there I splurged and got a cheese danish, which after the conversation below, I almost couldn't eat it. Almost.). The only reason I really stopped to begin with was that I figured I'd try to make myself feel better since I no longer have a carpool buddy. The conversation went something like this...
cashier: Wow, you must be due any day now!
me (clearly anticipating the backlash): No, not until November...
cashier: Well, are you sure it's just one, there may be two in there!
me (annoyed): No, we are pretty certain it's just one.
cashier: That must be one BIG baby!!
Thanks, lady.... you just made my Monday even worse than it was already shaping up to be. Is it Friday yet?
