We're pregnant, but we're not perfect ...

This week's confession:

I'm telling strangers I'm eight months pregnant instead of seven months.

I never minded being told I look huge, but in the past week, it's started bothering me. At my 28-week appointment, I was measuring at exactly 28 centimeters, but I'm only 5'1" and carrying high so I look like all belly. 

Now at 30 weeks, I've gained 20 pounds and I'm getting frustrated because I feel and look huge. Throw in comments from strangers, and I'm now lying about my due date.

Is that evil of me?

Is it really that bad to lie about your due date to keep strangers from making judgments about your weight?
