26.5 Weeks!


I will be in my third trimester on Sunday so please don't tell me how huge I look. Ok, whatever... I know I look good. Haha. So please don't tell me how great I look either. What I'd rather you do is comment on how someone who looks like this - almost 7 months pregnant - stood on a New York City subway train THREE days this week while commuting to work. It's currently Thursday, so you may be thinking "ok, so you sat ONE of those days - standing 75% of the time isn't bad!" But I was actually out of commission on Monday with back pain so I didn't even go to work! So yes, each day I've gone to work this week has consisted of me STANDING on the train the entire commute. My train ride is about 25 minutes. I get on the F train at Jay Street in Brooklyn and I get off that same train at 14th Street in Manhattan.

Are you telling me that not ONE person sitting in a seat saw my almost-seven-months-pregnant belly standing clutching a pole?

Would LOVE LOVE LOVE if you could share this. Post on your facebook, twitter, blogs.... maybe it will reach SOMEONE in New York City to make people more aware.

p.s. Please excuse the bathroom shot I swore I would NEVERRRRR take and post on any website or social media outlet. Hey, at least I tried to pretty it up by instagramming it! xo.

That is unbelievable. And I won't say how great you look or anything, but you are a cute pregnant woman!

You need to make people give up a seat! If I am standing and I see somebody pregnant also standing I will tell somebody sitting to get up and give a seat. What is wrong with people?

Tell those "Ghetto Ass Bitches" to get up!
