Sexy Hot (and pregnant?)

Thank you for so many nice comments yesterday everyone! I wasn't fishing for compliments at all, just simply showing what a difference the side view is from the back view. And so many of you actually complimented ~me~, not just the belly. I'm not used to being pretty, so thank you. Really. (And I'm officially in my 3rd trimester, so definitely in a moment of time I'm furthest from being actually "pretty".)

However, I do have a story to tell from last night having to do with being "hot" in some one's mind. This is a story I won't tell my husband, as he's the jealous type and wouldn't want to hear it, so no one call him up and share! I have some "IRL" friends who read this blog, which I'm not worried about, as it's not a secret. It's plainly not something I would choose to tell him because it would get stuck in his head and when I went on an unaccompanied trip, he'd assume things like this would happen all the time (which they don't).

First off, a little back story... In the last years of his life, my best friend Karl had another best friend named *Scott. I was Karl's best friend and he would quite often talk about me to Scott, which was usually always very positive. See, we lived in different states, so when Karl would talk about me, he missed me, so I was probably even "talked up" a lot. So Scott ends up thinking I'm one of the coolest girls in the entire world (I am, you know. ~wink~) by the way Karl talks about me. Added onto this, I think Scott had somewhat of a crush on me too. I don't know how much of this crush was due to the stories Karl would tell or if it was due to my looks or a combination of the two, but it was there. Whenever I would visit, I noticed the extra attention I got from Scott and how it even flustered him to talk to me, so I had an idea of the crush. He had a girlfriend (*Cindy, now his wife) and me a husband, so he never pursued me or anything like that.

I haven't seen Scott nor his wife since Karl's funeral. Karl's death was really, really, ~really~ hard on him and I spent quite some time comforting him while he cried either in person in the days surrounding Karl's death or on the phone for the months following the death. So this probably added onto the crush a little more, as we had a very deep emotional impact on one another.

Last night both Scott and his wife Cindy were at the party. I always got along with his wife, so I hung out talking to them both for most of the party. I had gone to do something and when I came back to where they were, Scott said to me "I was just talking to Cindy about this and she agrees, you certainly have that "hot pregnant chick" thing going on. I laughed and joked it was just because of my boobs, as I'm not actually hot at all. Then he said something to the effect that pregnancy sure did have a lot of change on me in "that area" and I explained how I had a boob job since the last time he saw me. I said that to just kind of laugh it off so talking about my boobs wasn't so awkward. But he just kept going.

"You are such a hot pregnant girl I bet you could actually go to a club and pick up a guy." No freaking way I protest. I can barely pick up a guy at a club when I'm ~not~ pregnant, I'm sure it wouldn't work with a giant belly. But nooo, he wouldn't let up. I felt so uncomfortable with him going on and on about how "hot" I was. And his wife was right there, which was making it even more awkward. I finally got the conversation turned toward something else. But I swear, throughout the rest of the night, it would turn back to it so I would have to tell him to shut up and change the subject. He either wasn't getting it, didn't care or was too drunk to notice.

Later in the night someone pointed out how my belly button was an outie because they could see it through the thin material in my dress. I said how it wasn't my belly button, but my piercing and I started to lift up my dress to show it. I stopped first because I was wearing a dress! But secondly and more importantly, I wasn't wearing any panties. So what do I say out loud?! "Whoa! I'm not wearing any panties and I almost lifted up my dress!". Scott asks "You aren't wearing any panties under there?" and I innocently reply "Nope! No bra either. I love it!" before I realize I am adding fuel to his fire. He responds, "so under that little dress, you are completely naked?" and I realize the damage is done. I try to downplay it but I see it in his face. He's intrigued.

For the rest of the night, I get comments out of earshot from his wife. Like if was walking in front of him, I'd hear "Damn, look at your ass." Or if I'm walking towards his direction, I get something about my "bounce" or about how much he finds the belly sexy. I either just ignored it or told him "okay, that's enough!" but in a joking manner, as I didn't want him to get into trouble. I've known him for years, so he's not just some random dude I don't give a rat's ass about if he gets in trouble with his wife or not.

But then, a little later and definitely a little drunker, he grabs me in the small of my back and delivers the coup de grĂ¢ce... "You know, you are the reason my wife is going to get nailed hard tonight."

Oh. My. God.

"Alrighty then Scott. That was over the line. You can't say things like that again." He turned red, got ridiculously embarrassed and apologized. Although I could still feel his eyes on me for the rest of the night, nothing more was said.

I will have to admit the attention did a bit for my ego. My own husband doesn't find my pregnancy attractive at all, so hearing it from someone else did make me feel a little prettier. But it was still over the line.

Oh, goodness.

You handled that with far more grace than I would have.

My husband didn't find the pregnancy thing a turn on, either. ANd I felt like such a bus, to be honest, that it was the furthest thing from MY mind...

Sara said...

No shit. I am not sure how I would have handled it - but I think it def. would have been awkward!

By the way - great dress! Love the color...you little hottie! :)

chicklet said...

Holy fuck, I have no idea what I'd say to that. You did so well to shrug it off in that uncomfortable way you have to in the beginning, but good gawd, what the hell?

Poltzie said...

Oh happy third tri hottie!!

Elana Kahn said...

Wow...some people just don't get it! Luckily, however, my hubby things my pregnancy is way hot...the only problem is no sex due to placenta previa. Oh well!

Jennifer said...

This is totally off subject, but I have two pink Red Sox onesies that were given to me and I don't really know any Red Sox fans. Karl would look pretty silly in pink, but maybe you know a fan expecting or already has a little girl.

The one has the cutest little shorts that go with them, but they are Phillies shorts...I'm SO confused. Maybe it was a family where one parent was a Sox fan and the other Phillies? Anyway...

Do you want them?

Jen said...

Oh my!! What an akward situation to be in. But I think you handled it well, way better than I would have. I would have probably been the one who was embaressed. You are great in those types of situations.
Hope you are having a good time.

Holy Shit this part made me LOL real loud "You know, you are the reason my wife is going to get nailed hard tonight." That is the funniest and craziest thing I have ever heard all in one. I dont know if I would want to take that as a compliment or almost puke lol. I have to agree with *Scott though, you are a very pretty pregnant woman! Im sure his wife wasnt happy with him at all. I know I would have been pissed at my hubby and told him to shut the hell up or he was sleeping on the couch haha.

jenn said...

holy shit! I definitely would not have handled that as well as you did! Good job on being so freaking hot that you incite friends to inappropriate comments (& acts)! Woo-hoo sexy belly!

theclam said...

Man alive! That was a bit of a line cross right there - but I'm sure it did boost the ego... it would have for anyone!

Kudos to you for handling that situation as well as you did. I'm not sure I would have been so graceful in the same situation...

eggorchicken said...

Jeepers that guy has some nerve, lol! I would be spitting if it was my hubby doing stuff like that, oi!

Glad you got a boost though ;)

You are looking amazing.

Karyn with a Y said...

Wow! Yes, I agree you are hot, pregnant or not. It does feel good to hear it every now and then.

Amanda said...

You handled that wayyyy better than I would have. I would have been the one hiding in the bathroom or sneaking across the room to escape him. Ugh!

But hooray for the ego booster!!

Sarah R said...

LMFAO!!!!!! I needed a good laugh this morning! OMG. I can visualize you beginning to lift your dress. I think it's funny how you were naked under it. Hahahaha...

Anyway, my husband didn't find me attractive at all. He said I looked like a camel when I was lying on my back (nice, huh?) and he would always say how big I was, even though I was all belly. Also, we recently were clicking through pics on the computer found some pics when I had my belly and some when I was actually giving birth and he was like, "Ew...keep going"

It helped when I would go out in public that everyone I ran into would say, "you are such a cute preggo!". It helps to keep your confidence up a little... :)

And yes, Nancy. You ARE beautiful, pregnant or not. :)

Anonymous said...

Honestly not judging, just asking. How do you not wear underwear? When I was preggo for the 2nd time I had discharge CONSTANTLY. If I went w/o panties I would have had gross gooey stuff all over my legs and on that dress if I sat down. Guess maybe you are just lucky not to experience that! Anyway, you did look cute in the dress.

nancy said...

Anon -

~giggle~ .. that WAS an issue! The fact of the matter was the dress was brand new and I was traveling and didn't have the right type of thong with me. I only had some cotton maternity thoungs which were just not the right material to wear with this dress. So ~all~ night, I had to keep going back to the bathroom to wipe myself down there to keep me clean/dry! :)

Hollie said...

OMG I was reading that story, shaking my head from that dumb guy bothering you, then I read his comment about nailing his wife, and my eyes popped wide open. I had to read it twice. You handled it very well. I think I would have frozen up and ran to DH crying. That is way over the line. One of DHs friends told me I look cute and he thinks pregnant women are hot (in front of DH). But the way he said it, and then left it at that was sweet.

By the way, you do look great.

Morgan said...

Did he cross the line? Yes. But somewhere deep down inside, if it would have been me, I might of kinda liked it. Maybe..just a little ;)

MrsSpock said...

No panties under a dress? Isn't it, uh, breezy under there? I think I would be insane with paranoia that I would have Paris Hilton moment....The dress, however, did look hot, panties or no...

Jennifer said...

Maybe the wife was just glad she'd be..."busy" that night. She knew he'd be with her. Idk

I'd be ticked if it was my DH, but that's me.

..crazy dude. ; )

nancy said...

Mareike - The comment wasn't made by someone I used to love. It was made by my late best friend's friend. I only hung out with him a handful of times when I would come out for a visit. There is ~no~ issue of old attraction nor anything there. No past between the two of us.

Io said...

You are hot. And if you were closer I would have had you work on those bar examiners. You sexy preggo self might have changed things around.
I can't believe this guy. I would have hit him in the balls.

Kaci said...

Oh no he didn't! OMG! Creepy and flattering all at the same time I guess.

JamieD said...

WOW. You handled that so much better than I would have. I would have been horrified. Okay, maybe just 90% horrified and 10% "Someone thinks I am HOT!"

I have to echo Kaci - flattering yet creepy.

You are a great looking pregnant chick, though!
