So, I am walking down the hall at school this morning and my principal, tactful man that he is, says I look like a pumpkin. (And, this was definitely NOT the first comment he has made about my expanding belly!) Granted, I am wearing an orange shirt today but does that seriously seem like a good thing to say to someone? It really didn't bother me but it just really got me thinking about all the inappropriate things people say to pregnant women. That has probably been the most surprising thing about pregnancy for me. In my case, it has been mostly men making these, "Whoa, you're getting huge!" (or some equivalent) comments. But, sometimes women make them, also. I have been guilty of it myself. I can't wait until I am really huge. Oh, the comments I will get then!
