It looks like 2 pigs fighting under a blanket

Why do women feel the need to comment on how a pregnant woman looks? I wouldn't tell my best friend that she looks like she is having twins, much less a stranger. Do you just walk up to any woman and tell her how giant she looks? I don't. Today I was at a yard sale walked by a lady and said, "you look miserable." Then I got to tell her that I still have 2 months to go. While I write this Brian asks why it is such a shot to my ego? I might scratch his eyes out. It really isn't a shot, I just think it is weird that pregnancy gives women license to say whatever they want to the prego woman. I don't do it, and I hope you don't either.

I was thinking about you the other day. I think you are a great mom, even trading the burnt sandwich and I must confess that sometimes I do that too, my kids just open it up and eat the insides anyway. It would fun to see you. Do you have any plans to come to SLC anytime soon?

I think about you all the time and wonder how you manage with 4 kiddos! You must be amazing... and SUPER patient! :) I am having a hard time being patient now that I am closer to delivery.
I would really love to visit with you too. I come to SLC fairly often, but it is so hard to see anyone because of all the family I have. I really need to make a trip where I just see friends. I would love it if Lola could meet and play with your kids. How weird... we have never met any of my friends children. Anyway, I will let you know about my next visit.
I think you should keep blogging too. I am always inspired by your sweet words.

This is just one of the many reasons I'm scared of pregnancy. Because I really think I might claw someone's eyes out if they commented on how big I was, and I know I would bitch-slap a stranger if they tried to touch my stomach. (this happened to one of my friends in a grocery store, and I have nightmares about it happening to me.)

I know! It's like your body becomes public property! I've had a few comments while I was pregnant with my boys (not at the same time), but what really freaked me out was when women would ADVANCE on you with their hands outstretched!!!!! Do it and DIE, lady, my belly may be bigger, but it's still mine!
