I'm pregnant, What's Your Excuse?

I am ready for this week to be over. It hasn't been a bad week, I just had a bad day.

 Someone was a jerk to me today and in a "joking" way called me fat.

Instead of the hundred thousand smart ass remarks I could so easily have replied with I just rolled my eyes and walked away. I would have been fine and would have contained my feelings but he came up to me and apologized and I realized I did feel hurt and started crying.

Once I start crying it's hard for me to stop. He went and told everyone how "bad" he felt cause he made me cry so everyone made a big deal and came up to me while I was sobbing and comforted me.

This was helpful and humiliating. I wish I had turned into the crazy, angry hormonal pregnant chick instead of the crazy, weepy pregnant chick and said hurtful things back.

The thing is I think he's happy he got such a strong reaction and caused a bit of drama. Some people need that attention and he definitely is one of them.

This is why I keep my distance from people in the work place. We don't need to be involved in any way shape or form outside of professional talk.

Don't joke with me, I don't know you and don't like you. (Okay, I like all of my co-workers aside from this one and enjoy talking to some about personal stuff.)

Anyway, I know I'm not fat and if I am then suck it, I have another human living inside me.

Enough about that though.

I'm excited because last night I got together with my mother in law and (future) sister in law and we started planning the baby shower! We set a date (October 23rd) and talked about the basics. This is going to be the first baby shower I've ever been to but it sounds like fun.

It's really, really nice of them to plan this all and put it together for me and my little girl. Three more weeks until the shower and nine more weeks to go until my due date! Life is good and I'm happy despite the minor trouble today.On top of that I'm damn proud of this big belly! It's a great, beautiful thing.

Beautiful photos. I was just thinking today I need to take some more recent ones of my belly.

I would comment on your co-worker but he doesn't deserve it. :)

YAY for baby showers. Mine is the 15th. I hope you take lots of pictures! I'm actually going to my first baby shower that isn't for me next week, should be fun...hopefully. haha.

Aww I know exactly how you feel. I had all sorts of dumb comments (from mostly men) including "Hey Fatty". WTF people are so stupid and hurtful. But they don't mean to be, they are just stupid. You look GREAT and YAY you only have 9 weeks left! :)

oooohh how frustrating! i can understand completely. i was weepy, weepy and horribly emotional my entire pregnancy. apparently none of my husband's friends wanted to come over b/c i just looked and sounded like a big ball of yuck. lol.

oh boy.

Ah! You're so close!

Don't pay attention to the a-holes who make jokes. A lady I work with keeps on reminding me how "huge, bloated, big" I'm gonna get now that I'm pregnant. People suck.
