people are so effing stupid it makes me sick. i apparently make very large babies (DD was over 9lbs and was 2 weeks early) and people will say things to me all the time about how i'm going to have this one early, like more than a month early. (Due at the very end of March and they will say - oh, you'll be lucky to make it to february! WTF). ummm, no. i'm not going to have my baby early if i can do anything about it. just because my baby might be big at 35/36 weeks, doesn't mean he should come out!!! so annoying.
People say this to me all the time because I have really blown up in the last couple of weeks, and those that know that the OBs have been telling me about the "big baby prediction," FI's family will say things like that all the time. They have been since around early December, which was wellllll before I would even be considered full term. I started to get really upset, and said, "Why would you even suggest that my baby would be premature?"
They're all, "Oh, you won't make it to your 36 week appt!" Um.... I will if I can effing help it. Just because a baby is predicted to be big (or even is bigger) doesn't mean that they're ready to be in the world just yet. People are stupid, ignorant and don't think before they speak.
