    Really…I love how he says " Don't listen to other peoples advice" and then gives you stupid advice. He's lucky you didn't throw that banana bread in his face!

    My personal favorite is the "You have no idea, just wait until…." I said something to an acquaintance a couple months ago about how uncomfortable I was trying to sleep and got the whole "oh just wait until later in your pregnancy, it's just going to get worse!" Gee thanks- I know. Doesn't mean I'm loving it now though.

    I have no idea how you didn't throw that banana bread in his face. So rude!!! If it helps, I've pretty much ignored everyone's advice, and I've got one pretty happy dude.

    Oh, and I sometimes indulged in that second cup of coffee. šŸ™‚

    NO! He did not say that!!!! Holy cow, I think this can officially go down as the worst thing to say to anyone pregnant. I'm so sorry you were unaware you died last year—what a way to find that out šŸ˜‰

    MY GOODNESS. What a jerk! I can't even believe someone would say that to anyone, especially a stranger. Gahhh all of these things…I think one day when I'm pregnant I'm just going to hide out in my house for 9 months and not tell anybody. I don't want the advice, touching, or debates. I think I'll also hide out for a year or two after baby is born, just so random grandmas at the grocery store don't try to touch my baby.

    This made me laugh! People are so crazy! I've never been pregnant, but I couldn't believe some of the stuff people said to my sister when she was. It was really strange to me how many random people felt the need to comment on it at all! I also noticed how no one seems to acknowledge the parents anymore when there is a baby around.
    I think we should all just be more cognizant of what we say and how we say it!

    Wow just WOW! I can't believe the things that come out of people's mouths sometimes. You guys should have walked away with some free banana bread!

    You are so much better than me. I would have pointed out every single flaw in his physical appearance and then asked what his excuse was. Then I probably would have thrown the banana bread on the ground and stepped on it.

    Oh good grief, my husband would have lost it! (And I probably would have chucked the bread in his face, considering my hormones these days.) I'm also weirded out when people want to touch my belly, because even being pregnant does not make me want to touch another pregnant woman without asking!

    You definitely should have SMASHED that bread in his face, what an idiot!

    That is just awful! I can't believe he was that rude. I don't understand why people grab pregnant women's stomachs. It's so awkward.

    I would really want to kick that farmer in the nuts.

    I mean… I don't even know where to start. You two are a classy couple, because I would have shoved that banana bread down his throat!! Gosh, people are so rude. And nothing is worse than unsolicited advice! For the record, you do look beautiful!

    OMG I would have thrown the banana bread in his face and them made my husband do something equally as terrible LOL!! I'm so sorry that you had to deal with that! xo, Biana

    I CANNOT EVEN HANDLE THAT FARMER. My former coworkers said some nasty things to me while pregnant, but that tops absolutely everything.

    Some people have no sense. NONE. I could add on to your list for days!

    I don't think I blogged about the person who come up and put her ear to my stomach and said, I don't hear anything. ????? Um, what?

    WHAT!? OMG. I can't believe some people. What a lucky woman his wife is that she gets to spend her life with a man like that. I hope you didn't purchase his damn banana bread after that. As for your list, I absolutely hate when people undermine something you're going through and always have to one-up you. Aaarrgghh!!

    Oh my, that farmer and my MIL would get along really well. Well intended but too brash. I'll never forget some of the things she said to my pregnant sister in law.

    As for touching pregnant bellies, I'm with you. I was born without that impulse that makes people want to reach out and touch. Nope, no thank you!

    Wow! My jaw literally just dropped reading that. Luckily I haven't had any a'hole men give me unsolicited pregnancy advice, but this story does remind me of when we were wedding ring shopping and the salesman told me I should buy a bigger size ring because I'll gain weight after I'm married. Some men are clueless.

    Seriously all I can say right now is wow! I can't believe that farmer actually said that to you and your husband! Is he still married because if he said those things to his wife I'm sure he's not anymore! And I hope you didn't buy the banana bread!

  21. Christina @ Route Bliss

    November 21st, 2015 at 2:39 am

    Oh good grief … I'm not pregnant and yet I want to smack him with the banana bread until said bread is in crumbles!

    Chelsea!!!! I apologize for being so absent! Already in the last trimester!? Amazing!!! I am so excited for you! HAHAHA that farmer is cray! What a nutcase. "Sexy wife died?" Oh brother! You can't make that stuff up! Yes, I got some crazy comments too but this takes the cakey! šŸ™‚ Oh your baby is going to be so adorable!! So thrilled for you and gotta catch up! Hope you are eating the yummiest food and sleeping the most delicious sleeps. Ha!

    Oh man… I probably would have thrown my banana bread at him! My jaw seriously dropped while reading that. His wife must put up with a lot!

    Oh my gosh, I cannot believe he had the audacity to say that! To quote Stephanie Tanner, HOW RUDE!

    YAS. To all of this!! You are so much nicer than me I would have put that banana bread right back down and walked away. Well, pre-pregnant me would have definitely done that, pregnant me might have reeeally wanted that banana bread!

    November 21st, 2015 at 6:35 pm

    You showed far more restraint than I ever would have, if have thrown the banana bread and then my fist…and maybe a foot….and then anything else I could find….his poor wife! I dread to think what insensitive a**hole-ish comments he made to her!

    I really enjoy my personal space…I'm pretty worried for the safety of anyone who touches my belly without permission when I'm pregnant some day. Also I don't know what I would've done if someone said that to me! Seriously?! You're giving him your business and he thinks that's a wise choice of words?? Sheesh.

    This is hilarious. Being 36 weeks pregnant yesterday with my 2nd I can totally relate! For some crazy reason people feel it's the one time they have the freedom to say whatever is on their mind about how u look, your weight, your decision making abilities and so on. My first pregnancy while I was 39 weeks pregnant I actually had a lady at a restaurant (who I didn't know!!!!!) lift up my shirt to see my belly. What??!! Lol.
    In the end I just have to laugh about it–but yes–it's always quite shocking!

    I hope you really did throw banana bread in his face because who says that???? I can't believe the things people say to pregnant women especially strangers, and unsolicited too.

    whoa i can't believe he said all that stuff to you guys! i don't even know how i would've reacted ahhh. and yeah i can't imagine strangers touching my belly – so weird!

    You probably don't want to hear this (or maybe you do) but you have me laughing so hard right now. I'm so sorry to hear all these ridiculous things have happened to you recently, and yet I'm not surprised at all. It's shocking how people just forget themselves and common decency when they're talking to other people. I bet if we said all these things right back at them (because I'm just going to pretend like we're on the same side) they'd get all offended and go off on us for days. I sincerely hope that you really did throw that banana bread in that man's face. And if not, I hope that he sells bread outside of your house again very soon so that you will get another chance. xx

    Holy moly I would've slapped that farmer so hard with my rhetoric!! I'm sure his wife just adores him… I haven't had the joy of being pregnant (yet) but I've heard some crazy things – like random people touching bellies. Ha! I'm eager to see how that goes for someone when they try to touch mine. LOL! Hope you're Monday is going great, and that the banana bread is so much better than the seller lol!

    Oh my gosh, you should have thrown that banana bread! What an idiot. Seriously the world is full of them and I ache for you and the fact they say these things. Why can't people mind their own business?

    Oh my gosh that is ABSURD that he said all that! It really is crazy what people feel okay saying to pregnant women. I haven't had any rude comments or anything but I've heard so many stories. So glad you were patient and able to resist the urge to fire back with a sassy comment. I would have struggled with that!

    Oh my!! How rude!! I love that he told you not to listen to any advice while spurting out the worst advice ever…AND he's a man. So terrible. I was lucky to not have too many rude comments, but I've heard so many terrible stories. You are very patient! Enjoy your last few weeks being pregnant šŸ™‚

    Ugh, I probably would've thrown the bread at him. How rude!! Some people just don't think (or have manners).

    wow. I know that people can be obnoxious and that they say crazy stuff but you know, somehow I always hope they never actually do those things. I am not a baby person and dont plan on having them ever, but would never even in my craziest times say things from your list. But people are crazy around women without babies too. Dont quite understand why.
    You look radiant (I went through your later posts…)
