4 Things Not To Say To Pregnant MeSeptember 06, 2011
#1 - Wow, you look so small, I didn't even think you were due that soon, you are so lucky!
My answer: Yes, my baby is super small and not growing... should mean lots of extra hospital time for us... yes lucky me!
#2 - Everything is OK now, right?
My answer: Um... no, unless you count an entire printed out sheet of possible problems as OK.
#3 - And your information is still the same? (said to me at my doctor's office at my Friday appointment, when I just had a Thursday appointment)
My answer: Nope... we decided life wasn't exciting enough already, so we moved yesterday evening!
#4 - I bet you're excited.
My answer: Oh yes, I can't think of anything better than getting cut open, and getting a much too tiny baby taken from me, just to be put in the NICU on lots of tubes and machines. But, I guess if you are talking about being able to finally regain control over my own bladder again, and wear more than 2 pairs of pants again, then yes... I'm excited!
Most of these are said by people that have no clue my situation, so I don't blame them, but some days you can't help but feel a bit jaded when you are walking this path.
Another doctor appointment today - Friday's appointment was happily uneventful - and hopefully 10 more days from today we will have a baby!
