Apparently everyone and their brother likes to point out that it’s hot. Really? Is it hot? I hadn’t noticed, thanks for letting me know!! Sarcasm aside, most of these folks have the best intentions and are offering their sympathy for my plight. My doctor also offered his condolences and I told him that everyone has been very sympathetic. He asks me: Does it help? Well, no, not really. However, I do appreciate their empathy as I endure one of the hottest summers on record whilst 8 months pregnant with twins. In all honesty, it really hasn’t been that awful. I’m usually always cold, so the heat is actually comforting to me. So I sweat a little (a lot) more than usual, but no biggie. I think the worst is just being approached by so many strangers. I am roughly the size of an 18-wheeler, so I guess it’s worth stopping to comment. Plus I think people are afraid I might bust into labor right then and there. Anyway, I’ve compiled a list of the top 3 weirdest places people have approached me about the pregnancy and/or heat sympathy commentary:
#3: In the middle of the street with oncoming cars as I am crossing to go into the grocery store.
#2: In Target, a complete stranger asked me if I was dilated.
#1: In a public bathroom from a stranger in the stall next to me while I am peeing. Seriously…
