28 Weeks

Baby and I have made it to 28 weeks! 9 out of 10 babies survive at this point which is a huge relief. Baby girl is able to perceive light and thankfully she has settled down since last weekend. I'm pretty big these days and was elated at the Maverick when one of the employees made a comment about me being pregnant.

The reason I say this is that there's this awkward stage in pregnancy when you just look fat but not really pregnant. The dental assistant cleaning my teeth in the recent past said, 'Oh I didn't know you were pregnant. I just thought you were a big girl'

Um, I pretty much wanted to die and her level of self awareness was not such that she was able to fully realize her commentary. Funny thing was that she wasn't one of thoes young chippies cleaning teeth. She was probably in her 40's and should definitely know better! I wanted to cry but I didn't...until later ;)

On the B Side: I am glad that the time is flying by!

Some people just don't get it. My neighbor had a baby in October. When she was pg, her coworker told her that she didn't look pregnant, just chubby. She actually thought she was paying a compliment. HELLO!!! Ouch... some people just don't get it!

People and their lack of brain cells seriously amaze me! It is truly shocking the shortage that some people have!
