It seems the past few weeks I’ve heard nothing but:
“You’re so tiny!”
“You don’t even look pregnant.”
“Oh, you’re popping out finally!”
“You’re so cute pregnant.”
I know these things are said with good intentions. Those who say the comments mean well, but it digs at me a little bit and makes me wonder: Am I too small? Should I be looking more pregnant? And I still don’t completely understand when people say I don’t look pregnant from behind. Am I supposed to grow my belly out sideways?
The important thing is that my doctor says I am doing fine and that you are growing just as you should. (Yes baby, you are still perfect.)
But these constant comments from others beg the question: Why do people feel the need to comment on the way that I look while pregnant? It seems to be the thing to say to a pregnant woman, along with the “How are you feeling?” question. I’m starting to realize that people just don’t know what to say to a pregnant woman, so they just say or ask the same thing every time.
Baby, the one person I truly appreciate these comments from is your daddy. Even though it seems he asks me every five minutes how I’m feeling or if I am doing okay, it makes me feel so loved to know he is looking out for me and for you. Your daddy is the type of daddy who would do anything to ensure we are taken care of and happy. He will put you and me before himself, and he will fix anything that isn’t right. He’s a great husband, and I know he’s going to be an awesome daddy.
I went on a little tangent there…I guess I really shouldn’t be complaining about the kindness from others in my life. It may be getting a little old, but I do appreciate the love and support from my family and friends. Most of all, I appreciate the love and support from your daddy. His comments make me feel that much more excited about and ready for the three of us to be a family.
