Because I don't care for small talk - I have developed a wall over the past 20-some years to where strangers (usually) won't even talk to me - which is great.
Except for when I am pregnant. Not only does my wall crumble and I can't keep the strangers away, but then I become a (growing) magnet for complete random people to burst out complete random things. For some reason people just cannot control the urge to talk to pregnant women.
Twice in one week, I've received the same comment: "Girl, you look like you are about to POP!". Which grant it, I do look like I am about to pop. But I am 5' 2" and have a small frame, where do people want my baby to go if it's not out in front of me?

Why can't folks be like the lady I encountered the other day at a restaurant (as I was getting ready to stuff my face with these burgers). She came up to me and said "Honey, when are you due?" so I answered. She then asked "do you know if you are having a boy or a girl?" so I answered. Then she smiled really big, pointed to a man across the restaurant and said "my husband told me you were having a boy by the way you are carrying your belly! You look beautiful! Best of luck, have a blessed day" and off she went.
That I didn't mind. But if I get one more "you look like you are about to POP", I just may pop them right then and there.
