I am fine with Doug telling me that I “look really tired”. I prefer his honesty to any Twix commercial type behaviors. What bothers me is that I have now had several strangers comment on how “tired I look”. Does it make them feel better about themselves to point this out? I can’t see how it could. Do they think they are enlightening me with information that will help me in some way? Surely not. Is this their version of small talk? Maybe. I know that people like to say whatever crosses their mind to pregnant women (“you are HUGE”) so I am not annoyed, just perplexed. Would you comment to a stranger about how tired they look? Here’s a little inside scoop just from me to you, that’s not tired you see. That’s panic about having a baby in 3 to 5 weeks and feeling unprepared. When you see me AFTER this baby is born you will be seeing what “really tired” looks like.
