Sometimes you're up...

AND SOMETIMES YOU'RE DOWN!


Man is that ever true in those final hours of pregnancy! Hormones galore, crying, yelling, being nitpicky...you name it. I think I have been mostly down lately. A few things I have been hearing that make me feel like jumping off the cliff some days:


1)" I hope that your baby stays in there longer so you can see what I went through being late with my baby!"- Seriously??? And don't think just one person has said this- multiple people have! While I know it's all love & jokes, my volcano of rage feels like exploding! Haha! - If you read this, and you have said this, I still love you :)


2) "Have you had that baby yet??"- Let us note that while the person is asking me this question, my belly is probably showing some cleavage from my shirt not covering the huge mass! - Yes, I had the baby person, I'm just really fat now. UGH!


3) "Anyday now huh? Looks like you're ready to pop!"- Thank you. Wait did I say thank you already? Ok, thank YOU for reminding me that I look like a whale! Not only do I feel like I weigh a million pounds, but now you have made it obvious that every insecurity I feel is true- I AM HUGE!


Those are just a few...a small few of many frustrating comments. These poor people mean well. I know they do- just trying to strike up conversation, or keep things funny. And that is very sweet. But when your emotions are at unspeakable highs and lows, you gotta be careful or pregnant lady hormone rage may just come after you! My poor husband and mom get the worst of my whining and complaining- they definitely deserve a metal- or at least a really nice thank you card- something!


I wrote this post to make sure that my blog stays real! My last post was picture perfect reminiscing of birth and being so excited, and that is definitely one of those really nice highs....but today, well, today is for real. It gets ugly around here people. I'm sure that once this baby makes her arrival, EVERYONE will be happier :)


Here's to keeping it real....


Love, K

Hey Krystle, Kacie told me about your post...it reminded me of the comment I received 2 weeks after Miki was born. I was walking, for exercise, and this friendly man that I had seen on my walks numerous times before said, "When are you going to have that baby?" Just know that these experiences are what help us grow in wisdom. :) Linnea

Oh man Linnea! That is so funny! Thanks for sharing...I'm convinced that people are just trying to make conversation...or are just REALLY bad at observation! hahaha!

I wonder if people think before they talk sometimes... pregnancy is hard enough without a bunch of thoughtless comments!!! When I finally told everyone we were pregnant with Saige, someone said, "Oh, I knew it. I could totally tell on Brazilian night." Well, Brazilian night happened like 2 months before conception... thanks a lot people!

Wyatt was 1 week OVERDUE and I had been waddling around the neighborhood hoping he would fall out all week…2 weeks after he was born my neighbor asked me "whose baby is that?" I said "MINE!" She said, " I had no idea you were pregnant!" I guess I was the fat and waddling neighborhood watch in their eyes.
