lacking tact.

here's a conversation I had with someone at my sister's graduation party last night:

"WOW Ashley! You're huge!" (that's how she started the conversation off... gee- thanks??? What do you say to that?)

she then proceeded to tell me...
"My neighbors daughter just had a baby but it died an hour after birth. It was born without an arm or kidneys. So when do you find out if everything is okay with your baby?" (I rolled my eyes, told her my u/s was in 2 weeks and then walked away)

A little later on, she came up to me again and said "I didn't mean to upset you or scare you. You've had one healthy baby- so you've got that going for you." (so then I said, "Well that's really not something a pregnant woman would want to hear.")

WTF??????????????????????????????????

Seriously. I had no idea how stupid and rude some people can be.

she has obviously never had a baby or been preggo! My goodness, some people. That would be great if you lived closer we'd love to have you in our playgroup :). I love it because we are constantly doing stuff, getting out and trying new things. But, if you're ever in the area you'll have to let us know and we could do something fun (like Jungle Joes :)) Did you ever get my email about MOPS, etc?? I never heard back and wasn't sure if I sent it to the right email...
