What NOT to say to a pregnant woman.

Here are a few comments I've heard while I've been pregnant, mostly from well-meaning strangers (who think they're funny):

"Wow, you're only six months? I'd hate to see you at nine!"

"So, how many minutes until you're due?"

"Is it triplets?"

"Wow, you're just about to pop, aren't you?"

"I bet you feel miserable."

Since it's my third kid, I really don't care, but thought I'd share ---those things really aren't funny to someone who's big and pregnant. LOL ;)

Speaking of which, I'm now so big that I can't wear my wedding rings. This always happens in the final days...water retention. So this time I decided to have fun with the rings:

Come, Sweet Chandler

Come, Sweet Chandler

Come, Sweet Chandler
[C is for Chandler. The bib was handmade by Les Sacs By Amy.]

And one more thing for Chandler. My Ladies' Bible Study Group presented me with this basket of gifts for Chandler, and prayed over me yesterday. It was SO sweet.

I love hearing about the things people say to pregnant women :)

This is one of the things I look forward to most about being super pregnant: telling people that I'm not pregnant and acting insulted when they think I am.

LOL!! Do it, do it, Kelly!! And I wanna be there when you do! Hahah!! Actually, I asked a lady one time when she was due...and she said "I just gave birth" - oops!!!

And a cashier asked me that when I was about 7 months along, and Chuck said "She's not pregnant" hoping to embarrass her...but she just put her hands on her hips and said "Yes she is!!" LOL
