10.) Coworkers: Wow, you’re still here?
Mom: Actually, I had the baby last night but decided to come in today because I’m THAT dedicated to my job.
9.) Have you tried eating spicy food/walking/eating pineapple/taking evening primrose oil?
Mom: Yes. Yes I have. Clearly it didn’t work. And by the way, you’re the 539th person to ask me that…today.
8.) The baby still hasn’t come out yet? Bless your heart.
Insert eye-roll here.
7.) You’re huge! That’s going to be one big baby.
6.) That baby must be really comfy in there!
Mom: Thanks for bringing up how comfortable my uterus must be. That wasn’t awkward. And while the baby might be comfortable, I’m standing here with cankles and the size of a house.
5.) Have you tried having sex yet?
Mom: Yep, three times this morning. Now do you mind if I ask when you last had sex, perfectly good stranger standing in line with me at Kroger?
4.) The baby will come when he/she is ready!
Mom: I know. But that doesn’t make being 41 weeks pregnant any easier.
3.) Oh my gosh, I’m so tired of waiting for this baby to get here!
Mom: I’m sorry that my child not arriving on time has inconvenienced you. Now let me tell you how little I care.
2.) Have you had any signs of labor?
Mom: No, but thanks for further depressing me by reminding me of the fact that NOTHING has happened.
1.) You’re still not dilated. We’ll see you back next week! – My OBGYN.
Mom: Well shit.
