40 Weeks: Rude Pregnant Lady {Babies and Beyond #35}


40 weeks, 3 days.

This baby is overdue. I can't honestly say I'm surprised. Disappointed? Yes. Surprised? Not so much.

It's actually been a bit of a roller coast weekend. I've had several "I think this could be it!" moments, except it's not it.

The waiting might not be so bad if people would stop reminding me that I'm still pregnant.

For instance take the young girl in the doughnut shop.

"Awww...when are you due?"

"This last Saturday actually."
"Oh my goodness!!! Please, don't have the baby in here!"
Seriously? Well, since you asked so nicely I'll wait until I get to the car. 

Or the nice lady at Wal-Mart.
"Oh my goodness, is it a boy or a girl?"
"A boy." 
"Your huge! You look like you are ready to pop!"
Yeah...pop you in the face maybe.

Of course, I don't actually say those rude things. I just smile and nod and think them in my head. I'm sure that's still a sin, but we all do the best we can.

So, if you think about it pray for me and for Baby J. Pray for a safe and timely delivery. And in the mean time, pray for those poor innocent people who just so happen to run into this tired and irritable pregnant lady. I know they mean well, but I'd really just assume total strangers leave me to my waiting in peace.

  1. aww feel you girl!! I was 3 weeks over due with my love and people wouldn't give me a break :/

  2. I'm 39 weeks pregnant today and not holding out hope of having a baby anytime soon. My older three children were 2 weeks, 1 week, and 2 weeks late consecutively. Knowing that I might have another 3 weeks to go (my doctor only lets me go 2 weeks over before inducing) is a pretty depressing thought right now! It would definitely be easier to handle if it weren't for all the comments and questions from EVERYONE! When I was pregnant with my third, I wrote a list of pros to being overdue that you might enjoy :) http://supermommyornot.blogspot.com/2012/08/pros-of-being-pregnant-and-overdue.html
