Another Confidence Booster

As you can imagine, I am feeling quite huge right now. I have 3 weeks until I will have baby number 4. In the last 3 weeks I have suddenly developed too much amniotic fluid. A typical pregnant woman has about 3 pounds of fluid. I have 6 - Yippee! The only good side to this, is once the baby comes out, so does the fluid, an automatic 6 pound loss. You can't beat that! It doesn't feel great to be carrying around all these extra pounds and I feel more like a science experiment everyday. As I mentioned in previous blog posts, I am getting lots of comments from strangers about my size. I think the greatest (or should I categorize it as the worst?) one came on Monday. I was waddling into the grocery store with all three of my kids. I heard a car stop behind me and an old man (probably about 70) rolled down his window and said, "Miss, you think you've been eating enough food. You better slow down." Then he proceeded to laugh hysterically as he drove off. Ha! Ha! was all I could think. The other shoppers around me were completely shocked and telling me how great I looked. All I could think was, "It's almost over!" I don't think anything phases me anymore. Bring it on!


  1. Can't believe people would be so mean and say that to you !

  2. Good grief! People can be so rude! I know it's tough to feel like your body is going through so many changes, but I am glad that you realize it's a temporary thing. Once the baby is out, things will gradually return to normal. Those mean people can go suck on a bath fizzy (which does NOT taste good, believe me, lol)!

  3. Wow, some people are ignorant and rude!!!
