What people say when they see 10+ lbs of baby in a belly

I'm 34 weeks pregnant with twin boys. I happen to be measuring 35 weeks. The last couple weeks, I've hit the point where passersby are just saying whatever they want. Mostly, I think it's comical. Here are a few in blue. My responses are included in green.

"I like your shirt. I am sure you'll be glad to hang that one up anyday." - fellow shopper

"Thanks. It's not a maternity shirt. And, I have 5 weeks to go."

"Woah! You're about to explode!" - gas station attendant

"$20 on Pump 1. Thanks."

"Oh, let me back up. You aren't going to be able to make that corner." - fellow shopper

"Yeah, there is no sucking in these days."

"Oh my gosh! You're huge!" - my business client TONIGHT

I just smiled. I love her. Doesn't matter.

you, my dear friend, are simply beautiful. Did you know that if you google "biggest lady ever", you get me? Don't do it, you will only bring my horrible google rank up farther.

What I'm trying to say is, people are dumb. Lovely but dumb.

Seriously I think you look awesome for having two boys in there. I don't think I looked half that pretty when I was pregnant! Honestly, who cares what people say...you have to amazing blessings tucked inside waiting to meet your awesome family!

You're so funny and such a good sport. I'm 25 weeks pregnant with my first child (a boy!) and the comments from others drive me crazy!
