What is wrong with people? Even well-meaning people who have gone "Ooh, you're getting big, aren't you?" are really annoying me this week.

My new blanket statement for pregnant ladies is "You look great!"

Besides "Congrats" and "You look great" there really aren't any other comments that need to be made. I've had people question the spacing of our kids, whether it was on purpose, assume we are going to keep trying until we get a girl, etc. I could go on and on

Updated. A friend was doing photography sessions for Xmas and my boys screamed through the whole thing so it became a mini Xmas maternity shoot for us instead -

I have realized being pregnant you get to hear a lot of comments that you don't particularly care to hear. Everyone has SOMETHING to say... because I've had a weird body issue all my life (I think they call it Body Dismorphic Disorder, never been diagnosed professionally, but if I talked to enough shrinks I'm sure it would come up lol) I have had a hard time dealing with the weight gain (no matter how small it seems to everyone else..).

I hear oh you're so tiny though I was "this big" when I was that far along.. you're so beautiful pregnant.. I say thank you because I am polite but at the end of the day I do not feel like any of that. I think the comments will always effect us in some way, we should all wear signs that say "Please don't comment on my growing fetus or my body size"

Also, am I the only one tired of repeating my due date, sex, if I have a name, etc? I need a sign that has all this as well lol.

Anyways!! I do love how your maternity pictures turned out.. the heart candy canes are a cute addition!! I put the bloopers of mine up on facebook because those felt more real to me and my family than the super posed ones lol. I think I'll go and post those up now to share with you all, give us a good laugh
