I am not Pregnant Just FAT thanks for asking

I am a nurse and I wear scrubs to work! I can move well in them, hold necessary equipment in the pockets, and do my job well in them! They are not fashionable, and no I do not wear spanks, or any tummy tucking pantyhose underneath them.  I am a professional without having to wear the  high heels that would be sure to kill my feet. So with that said and knowing that my mid section is in no way concealed, Please answer me just one question. Why the hell would another woman , who doesn’t know me ask , when is your  due date!

umm, are you kidding me? A woman of all people should know to never ever ever comment on someones weight, and you never assume she is pregnant! I mean the lady was making big hand gestures over her belly and everything! Please fellow women, don’t ever do that to another unless you know for a fact that she is pregnant. I know that most of us have all been there.

No I am not the 134 pound girl I once was, but hey, my husband still loves me anyway. Yes I want to lose the extra pounds, but hey, I also will not be needing gastric  bypass anytime soon.  I am working on it and it’s a slow hard process. We woman should be encouraging each other, supporting one another. Do not assume one is pregnant because of a round mid section. I had three children within five years for heaven’s sake! As soon as my body would bounce back from one pregnancy, then  POOF!  I was pregnant again! You know those funny little haha’s that the good lord gives you every now and then, You are so proud of being skinny so let’s make you fat again haha!  Well I just thought this time I would be super cool and stay fat, so Ha jokes on you.

All kidding aside, this can be very hurtful. We struggle with weight, and strive to look as we once were. Sometimes because of others, and sometimes it comes naturally. Sooo. I know you are all itching to ask me what my response was right. I looked at  super bitch  this young lady and said ” My due date was a year and half ago, and yep he’s one and a half, so good job for getting the math right!. But Thank you for crushing my self-esteem, now if you will excuse me!” Yep totally did! It didn’t really hurt my feelings but felt good to bitch her out! Maybe next time she will learn her lesson.

I am a wife of ten years, mom of three, Nurse and student! My household is quite chaotic and busy. With a six year old going on sixteen. we shall call her "Sassy", a four year old, who is stubborn as a mule, she shall be called " mini me", and a one year old, we will call "Buddy". Our girls do Ballet, and our son, well he is all boy! Very curious and always getting in to something. When we found out we were having a boy i laughed and said " god must have known we needed a little less diva in our life," Ha, little boys are quite the handful! I love my kids with all of my heart, and i love my job too! As a nurse leader i get to see many sides to healthcare and help encourage and guide new nurses. I love taking care of patients and being able to have grown up talk and then come home to my babies. The house is usually chaotic with lots of tantrums, and messes, but i wouldn't change it for a bit. On the rare occasion that i am able to have some spare time to myself, i like to read, bake and decorate cakes, and take pictures of my kiddos. Time to myself is rare so i decided to start this blog to have a creative outlet and connect with other working moms, who might be going through the same situations as myself. I hope you enjoy my thoughts and stories as a mom, student, wife and Nurse! These stories will range from Diapers and tutus to meetings and boardrooms! and everything that falls in between. Enjoy and thanks for visiting my site.

  1. Good for you for telling her off. Insinuating someone you don’t know is pregnant is not cool at all. I never ask a woman about what may or may not be a baby bump. If they don’t tell me or offer some indication they’re expecting I keep my mouth closed.

    1. I am so sorry for the late response but thank you! Isn’t in some sort of woman code that we never ask each other if we are pregnant? I have a feeling that she will never ask anyone else again unless she knows for sure 😉
