Umm… almost EVERYONE has asked us if this was planned. We’ve been married for 2.5 years but we haven’t really made a secret of the fact that we were in no hurry for kids so I guess we really shocked a lot of people. But like, I feel like they all already know the answer (no, it was not). So why ask?

Let’s see.  I had one comment that I was growing wide.  Another that I was so small to start and now I’m huge.  Someone else was like “you’re due any day now aren’t you?” and of course I replied “no still 9 more weeks” which was followed by “wow your belly is so big. Good luck.”  And then I think my favorite so far was the “you’re gonna need a c-section that girl is looking huge.”   I love how people just want to boost my self-esteem 🙂

someone mentioned doctors, but I think they’re *supposed* to ask if it was planned vs. a surprise b/c then they’ll know if you’ll need special support (emotional or even medical like making sure you are taking prentals since you most likely werent before, etc.)

I went into a walmart one day at 36 weeks and had TWO different staff members stop me and say, “If you don’t mind me askingm how old are you?”. I look young, but I’m 24. The first was a greeter who was fairly obviously a recent immigrant so I wrote it off as cultural differences instead of rudeness, but I was totally floored when the next guy asked 10 min later. I also had parents come in at the school I was teaching at in June who gave me really dirty looks until the VP introduced me as their child’s teacher. People are really rude. -_-
