RANT ALERT! There are these girls that sit near my desk at work and lately every day when i arrive in the morning they pass comments on how i am looking, saying things like "You look like you're gonna spew, you ok?" Or "you look very bubbly today" or "geeze you're really showing today!" which all sounds pretty innocent so i never thought a thing of it. One of those girls did approach me in the lunch room to tell me that i have gained weight around my waist... (like i haven't noticed, stupid cow!) Anyways this morning they took it up a notch. I walked in looking flushed because it was a warm morning and plus i had raging heartburn and was hurrying to my desk to take something for it, and one of the girls said to me "You look very flushed today" and i just smiled and said "yeah it's warm outside and i think i am burning from the inside out with this heartburn" and the one that has previously commended on my waist line yelled out to me pointing and laughing "Sandi! I can see how swollen your hands are from here! Hahahaha!!" and a few other people had a laugh at my expense. I looked down at my hands, they weren't even that bad! I could still take my wedding ring off f*cks sake! Then the other chick points out my team manager who has a history of eating disorders and who is currently pregnant and they go "Look, ....... hasn't gained any weight, she looks great" And my team manager basically stood up and strutted herself around giggling about it. I couldn't believe what was happening around me! I was basically in shock. I sure have read about how cruel people can be with pregnant ladies but i hadn't copped it myself to that degree as yet - and oh my GOD is it horrible! I was so upset after that, i went and reported it to my supervisor. I started crying in her office as well, it takes a lot for me to generally cry even while pregnant but that incident really shook me. It's hard enough dealing with the changes in our bodies without dealing with pricks like that. I don't mean this in a bitchy way but the two girls that have lashed out are both experiencing issues at the moment, one is desperately trying for a baby and has had 4 miscarriages this year.... and the other is on and of with her boyfriend and has basically been bitchy towards me ever since i got married 2 years ago. She's the one that pointed and laughed at my apparent hilariously swollen fingers. I am so sick of people thinking they can say whatever they like to pregnant women. It's really out of control the way people behave! I was so upset all friggen day at work today. I will say, to piss them off after that incident every time i walked to my desk and they were watching me I would rub my belly proudly to rub it in their faces. I don't normally like to torment people but they crossed the line with me today.
