Dear world,

Let it be proclaimed to the internet that I am not pregnant, and should not be assumed as such, until further personal notification as I will initiate if and when my pregnancy status changes.

Please supress your urge to ask my due date, congratulate me, or pat my tummy knowingly. I have a hormone imbalance that makes me fat; I'm taking medicine (to balance the hormones) that makes me throw up. Believe me: when I'm finally pregnant, I will let you know.

And yes, I need to exercise more. I plan to do so every SINGLE day next week.

Love,
Kathy

Please tell me this has not been a problem. What a nightmare! We should make people who say stupid things pay. But how?

kathy!!! the only reason i EVER asked you was because there was another blond girl in our program who was prego and i got you two confused...it was before i knew you!

i just saw blond hair and thought you were her!

i adore you.

Em, You're so cute. And don't worry—I don't even remember you asking. Friends are one thing; acquaintances butting into my life are another. And I'm talking to them.

I'm talking to the dear woman who used to live in my neighborhood who said (no joke), "I've been looking at your stomach and thinking you've just GOT to be pregnant."

You're not even close to being like that. I adore you, too!

Ok, first of all, people are stupid to think that you're pregnant. Becuase some pregnant girls are grumpy and kinda scary, an you are not either.
And also, really random but, YA!! You used the thing that I designed for you guys!

people are stupid. i think all stupid people should be locked up. if i were president... (heaven forbid)

speaking of exercise. my brother and i are planning to start going to the pool and track on alternating days early in the morning. the track opens at 5:30 and the pool at 6. let me know if you'd ever be interested in joining us.

the more, the merri- okay, really, the more, the more likely i am to do it!

People are so silly! That's one thing I try to NEVER do unless I know for a fact the person is pregnant! Someone asked my roommate when she was due once and she didn't even have a stomach!! And...I got asked that a few times on the mission during a certain phase. It's a little awkward. Hang in there! You're awesome!

The fact that you have to post such a thing. . .I feel bad for you. People really need to watch their mouth.

This is the curse of living in Utah valley and not weighing 120 pounds. I'm so sorry! At least it makes for good writing material (that's what I tell myself whenever something tragic happens--helps take off the sting).
