"Are you sure you are only expecting one baby?"

I really can't stand when everyone judge and comment about how much weight you have put on during your pregnancy and make the classic joke "are you sure it is only one baby?".... what does infuriate me is the fact that this comes mainly from supposedly friends and members of the family who already had two or more kids, like my sister and after her third baby four years ago, she still bigger than myself who am 9 months pregnant...or her husband who has the belly of a 5 months pregnant woman and still thinks it is funny telling to your sister in law how fat she is now...or your own mother who should be there to support and advise you...not telling you what or not to eat....Thank God for my partner who reminds me every time how beautiful I am and how I glow now that am pregnant....

Yah people make stupid remarks, all the time. Sounds like you got your head on straight and so does your partner. Some people don't mean to be offensive they just really aren't capable of thinking of something pleasant or intelligent to say. My fave comback is "well, I am pregnant what's your excuse?" and "good thing, this is only temporary, for me" lol
