So I hear about people having to endure all kinds of rude comments from stranger, family, and friends during pregnancy. I've been spared thus far.
But tonight was the best comment yet. I was out with a few coworkers. I mentioned that I was going swimming afterward and one asked, "Do you have a maternity swimsuit?" I smiled and said, "Nope! I wear a bikini!"
As another coworker blurted, "Ha! Awesome!" and reached out to give me a high five, the questioning coworker let out a belittling laugh and said...
"What? You must look like a clown!"
Really? A clown?
I looked at her and said, "Actually, I like my body more now than I perhaps ever have. So I'm perfectly comfortable wearing a bikini with my belly."
And with that I left for the pool--bikini, belly, and all.
