1. WHEN are you going to have that baby? (This is something I obviously can't even answer to myself, let alone you, but by all means go ahead and ask anyways)

2. Are you STILL pregnant?! (Um...yes...thank you...and glad your eyes are still working)

3. Exactly how many kids ARE you going to have? (Hadn't thought much of it during this pregnancy but I'll make sure to OK it with you next time)

4. Can I feel your belly? (That depends on how much you value the use of that particular hand)

5. You look exhausted. (Thanks a bunch, you look pretty awesome yourself)


What are some questions or conversation starters that have you chuckling during your pregnancy?

The ones so far (23w4d) definitely don't have me chuckling.

*Are you sure it's not twins?

*You are big for 4 months (when I was ending 5 months)

*You aren't eating enough (during lunch at work. But what they don't see is the snacks that I do have throughout the day)

Not showing much with this one yet but last pregnancy it was " you look like you're about ready to pop! "

I've gotten "are you excited?" A lot. It's like they are waiting to base their reaction off my answer

My MIL was asking me if it was twins up until 20 weeks when we had our ultrasound. I had to laugh at "you aren't eating enough" because I too snack all day so when mealtime comes I don't eat much.

I've gotten that too. This is my 4th so I agree with you that they are waiting for my response.
