Motherhood Monday

Maternity Monday: 5 Questions You Must Answer Your Entire Pregnancy!

Happy Monday All!
I would first like to announce the winner of the HandMade Earrings created by Shayla Peterson, owner of Pulling Strings. Congrats to Camille Blue!! Send us a picture when you wear them!
Well it’s time for Maternity Monday!
This past week nothing great or exciting really happened. I actually go to the doctor this week. I did get on the scale while alone in my bathroom, and I gained another 4 pounds *insert sad face*. This week more people noticed I was pregnant at work and church. You see I never announced it, not even on FB. I only annoucned it on my blog. So if you didn’t read this blog and weren’t a super close friend. You wouldn’t know until the belly started to show. So Sunday at chuch alot of people were asking me and saying, “OMG! I didn’t know!” Well, I never said anything.
And then the questions start… know the questions Mothers (and mothers-to-be)…..the same 5 to 6 questions you will get your entire pregnancy. You should almost create a card and hand it out when people notice you are pregnant for the first time.
1. How far along are you? 
2. Do you know what IT is?
3. When are you due?
4. Did you plan it?
5. What do you want?

6. How do you feel?

I just smile and answer. It’s funny because it’s never just one question. They just roll them off and I just roll of my answers because I am guilty of asking others the same thing.

      Sounds about right, lol! I have six and probably after the 3rd, I kept hearing the same two:
      1. Is this going to be it for you?
      2. Don’t you know what causes that?
      Most days I just answered questions politely, but somedays I got really irritated with folks. Once, when I was pg with #3 and working as a server, I had a guest ask me the latter question. And I just stopped and looked right at him and said “You know, my parents always told me I should find something I’m good at and stick with it. So I did.” Lol!

      I do not miss answering those questions every 5 minutes especially the what do you want question. Cause when sometimes you don’t get what you said you wanted besides “the healthy baby” answer it usually follows up with “are you going to try again” question.
