    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I have a few grievances:

    Why do people who haven't EVER been pregnant (or it's been more than 20 years since they were) insist they know when your baby is coming? Are you a medical professional? No. Do you have x-ray vision and can see how much my baby has developed? No.So please keep your thoughts to yourself. Thank you.

    If my mother or any other person in this world tells me I look like I'm about to pop, I will hit them. If I was just fat, you wouldn't say that.

    I am NOT having twins. I have had 3 u/s, there is only one.

    Why do you think you can touch my belly? This is still my body. Just because I am growing another human does not mean you have the right to touch it. If I wasn't pregnant, you wouldn't do that.

    If you continue to stare at my belly, I might punch you in the face.

    Ok, I feel better now. =)

    The next time someone touches your belly, reach over and put your hand on their belly and just stare at them. If they become uncomfortable, tell them, "don't like it either, do you?".

    I just step back quickly and exclaim "Careful! He bites!!" People generally think I am crazy and leave me alone when I do that.

    Luckily people haven't made any of the stupid comments yet, I think the people who know me know it's not smart. I have a fairly quick wit and I tell it like it is. Most people avoid the truth when they can.

    Wow, I sound mean. I'm not really, I just have a very low tolerance for stupidity, and people who choose not to use their common sense.

I'm all baby & yes I'm huge (in my mind) - so back off! hehehe, my nephew is the biggest culprit of them all! and YES I have popped him for it!
