OMG, how do you get over that? Besides importing a hippo and bodily throwing so that it squashes that person? That might help A LITTLE.

Oh. My. God. WHO SAYS THAT???

My husband's uncle told me "hey, you're looking fat!" when I was 8 months pregnant. I was so shocked I couldn't think of anything to say. That was six years ago. I'm still pissed about it (and still thinking, what could I possibly have said??).

that guy must be an all time jerk ... is he married? poor woman ...
Hope the mood swings so away soon just like the naseau ...

Wow. Just....wow.

If I lived closer, I would go egg his house for you. With giant HIPPO eggs! Wait. What? Never mind. You know what I mean. He's an asshole.

P.S. your belly is adorable. Not at all hippo-like. So there. :)

Seriously, that's not cool and if he is married and she knew he'd said that? *daggers* You look nothing like a hippo - that's a nice little baby bump.

You look good!

Have you mentioned the moodiness to your dr? I'm sure it's totally normal, but if it's making you feel bad, sometimes it helps just to mention it.

I can't handle Sunny anymore, but H still loves it. He's also into that UFC show again because of Brock Lesnar.

YAY I can finally comment on your pregnancy posts without worrying about giving too much away! I have yet to encounter the Moodiness (except when I had a big, ugly cry-fest at the series finale of Big Love), but I'm sure it's just around the corner. Tim's gonna love that one.

The Hippo Story: OMG. So not cool, coworker. Not cool at all. Although I do agree with you that hippos are really cute. But that does not excuse one from comparing another person to a hippo. Not even a little bit.

WTF. Seriously that is the rudest thing ever. He should be fired!!! (Okay, not really... but kind of because WTF.)

And also - NO. He is obviously WRONG. You look adorable.

I am so sorry about the volatility. It really sounds so frustrating. I have way crazy mood swings around That Time and they make me feel like a crazy person. And yet, they are impossible to ignore/control. I'm sure I can't even half understand what you're going through. Hang in there. And by the way - so impressed at how HILARIOUS you can make all of this.

1) That video is awesome, although I'm very sorry if that is an accurate representation of how you feel most of the time!

2) Your coworker is a jackass.

3) He is also wrong. You look like a pregnant person with a very cute baby belly. Some people's kids!

4) Hippos ARE cute and I have the desktop photo to prove that I really believe that.

"Well, in that case, your favorite animal must be the jackass!"

It's never okay to say someone looks like a hippo, nevermind a moody pregnant lady.

I was telling someone the other day about how EASILY my mood can go from SKIPPING! to SOBBING! And I'm not even pregnant!

The sad part? It doesn't work the other way around. One ugly remark from one person I rarely ever have contact with and my day is ruined, but if someone pays me a compliment, it doesn't fix a bad mood. WHY NOT? :)

I agree, your coworker was completely inappropriate, and his comment totally belongs in the number one slot of Things You Should Probably Not Say To A Pregnant Person.

Also, I hear you on being able to function during the work day but not so much as night. My ability to clean the kitchen has been severely compromised since getting pregnant. I feel bad because Luke is always the one who cooks dinner, so I should be the one to clean up, but usually I can only manage it a few times a week - definitely not every night. I get tired so easily these days, or my sciatic nerve acts up, or I get winded and have to stop what I'm doing. It's like our bodies know exactly how long they have to be on so we can be productive at work, but the minute I walk through the door at home? All bets are off in terms of productivity.

Also, as always, you look adorable!
