My family and friends have said very nice things about my appearance while I've been pregnant. They've been supportive and tell me all of the wonderful things that a pregnant woman wants to hear while she's packing on the baby pounds. I remember and appreciate each one of those comments especially during times like a little incident on the way out the door from work yesterday.
As I was leaving to go home, a co-worker (who has daughters in their mid-twenties who will likely get pregnant sometime in the next few years) said, "Goodbye, Chubby!" His daughter (who was standing nearby) gasped. All I could say at the time was "NO YOU DIDN'T!" He's lucky it wasn't a hormonal day yesterday or I am positive his head would not have made it out the door attached to the rest of his body.
SO, my family and friends, THANK YOU, and I love you!!! Your support truly gets me through the day while having the bonus effect of tempering the not so thoughtful things that people feel the need to say.
