This is the shirt I've decided I need to get made to wear every day for the remainder of my pregnancy:
Can you tell what kinds of comments and questions I have been getting from random strangers (and some not strangers)? I'm not sure when it became okay to ask or say whatever you want to a pregnant woman, who may be an absolute stranger to you. Rude much?
Well, rant over, on a positive note we saw our high-risk doctor again this morning. That means we got another peek at baby girl and even got to see her in 4D (basically 3D in real time). She was moving and grooving and (despite the overly large size of my belly in the opinion of some) she was measuring right on track for 23 weeks 3 days gestation, at 1 lb. 5 oz. We got some 3D pictures and I love being able to see her sweet little face. I'm thinking she looks different than Emma. I need to get Emma's 3D ultrasound picture out and compare it to this baby girl.
For now time has slowed and I'm trying to keep on keeping on. Sending love and light to you mamas. xoxo
Unfortunately, people always feel like they can say whatever they want to strangers, especially when it comes to pregnancy and babies. I wish I could say that the hurtful and damaging comments stop, but they seem to get worse, actually, after the baby's here. Instead of commenting on your belly, it will be her size or your choice in using a pacifier or something else. Just know that you are doing a great job, mama! Keep trying to focus on that positivity, even if it is hard! And when you need to break down and cry or shout or whatever, that is ok too!ReplyDelete
