Just STOP!

OK, so what gives?
I am not sure when it happened, but I have come to the descision that there are some comments that you just shouldnt make to a pregnant person.
Things along the lines of "Wow, you look like you are about to pop!"
What are you thinking??? What if I was just overweight, not pregnant...would that statement be anyway near ok??? HELL NO~!
Or " Wow, you must be ready to go any day now." When I gently comment that no, I have another 6 weeks to go, the apropriate reply is NOT "Wow, that is one BIG baby"
So I am taking a vow. I will NEVER comment on the size of someone's pregnant belly again. I might smile and ask how far along..(yes, that is an OK question) or ask if they are getting excited about the upcoming event, but NEVER EVER EVER will I EVER comment on size. I dont even see how you could say that you were being polite by asking something like that...unless it is a dear friend or family member...its none of your damn business how much weight that person has gained, or how she is carrying, or how far along she is.

Sorry....I know if you have been pregnant or had preggo friends, you have heard these comments before. I just cant believe some of the crap complete strangers have been saying to me!
