there has been an influx in belly comments.
I used to receive sweet comments:
AWWWWW how cute is your little baby bump!
You're finally starting to show!
You have the cutest little belly!
These new comments, however, have awakened the mad pregnant woman within.
I have started making a list. I have labeled this list:
TOP 3 BELLY COMMENTS YOU SHOULDN'T SAY TO A PREGNANT WOMAN IN THE THIRD TRIMESTER...if you want to live.
#3. Oh, WOW.....
So when are you due?
Oh, WOW? What exactly do you mean by that? Never mind, I could tell my the emphasis you put on the WOW. You just told me that it looks like I'm going to give birth in the next 2 minutes. Oh, you didn't mean it that way? Yes you did. I want to karate chop your esophagus.

You saw me YESTERDAY. Is that supposed to make me want to hug you? Would it make you happy if I told you YOUR belly doubled in size since yesterday? Well your face has also doubled in ugliness since I last saw you.....how about that? Yeah, that's right.

How many weeks do you have left?
Oh about 8!
Goodness. Are you sure there aren't twins in there?
Oh I'm sure.
I'm also sure that I would like to punch your mouth off.
And that concludes the top 3 things you probably shouldn't say to a pregnant woman in her third trimester.

We are very aware of the tiny humans growing in our bodies....just tell us how beautiful we are....that's safe. Comments like Oh your belly has grown! or Oh my goodness, look at your belly! or something along those lines are safe, too. Like I said, we're proud of our bellies. Just don't be stupid.
In case you missed it on Instagram, here's my 30 week bump!
