I’d just tell them to mind their own freakin business…

“any time now”. When you say it’s due “any time now” people take a step back – especially if you strain your face and hold the belly. Cross the legs and they’re practically running the opposite direction.
If I had a dollar for every time someone asked if I was having twins I’d be a rich woman. I almost wanted to start saying – “I’m not pregnant – but thanks for asking” – just to make them feel guilty. But they probably wouldn’t have and I would have still been standing there looking and feeling huge. By the way, I think you look great.

Complete strangers in the grocery store that you will never see again? Tell them whatever you want. I fudged on my due date all the time, just so I wouldn’t get any comments. My due date was Sept 11 and whenever I told anyone, they all acted like it was the worst date to have a baby ever. Ug. So I just told people the 12th. Save yourself some annoying conversation with people you would rather not be talking to anyway and tell them “Yesterday.”

lol Oh man, the abundance of inconsiderate stranger comments when you’re pregnant is unbelievable, eh?
I’m tempted to post a preg. pic of myself to show you how I relate.
Sometimes I daydream about being ‘one of those’ pregnant women who look maybe 3 months pregnant the day before they give birth & walk out of the hospital in their pre-preg. pants… I’m friends with one of them. It’s not cool of her.

I think you should tell folks that you’re due “any day now” and keep that up through the rest of your pregnancy. A few weeks from now all those nosy Nellies will steer clear of you — not because of your girth — but obviously because you are 13 months pregnant and they are askeered it’s contagious. 😉

I’m the same way. I look WAY farther along so when I say I’m due May 5, I get the huge eyes. Reminds me that I should do another belly shot soon. Maybe later this week when we reach 25 weeks.

tell them you are having triplets and could you please now carry my groceries to my car for me??
tell them “pregnant! i’m not pregnant.” then cry and say it’s an abdominal tumor and you are scheduled for surgery tomorrow.
