I swear if one more person come up and tells me i'm really big i might actually take a swing at them.. I'm five foot nothing and before i got pregnant i was about 8 and a half stone.. Why do people feel the need to point out the fact that i have a very big bump..So much so that i have had a number of people asking am i sure its not twins (Eh no.. that might be something the doctors would have mentioned!!!).. I swear there is a girl who works across the road from me and every time i see her (i now hide) she keeps saying stuff like "wow you are so big" and "and what are you going to be like by the time the baby is ready to be born, cause you know you put on a lot of weight in the last month" i swear i may actually run her over.. I have had a lovely pregnancy, no sickness, nothing to complain ... please someone ... tell me you have had to listen to this.. i feel like a hippo...

Oh I could rant forever about what people say! They have to say something, I wish someone could be imaginative though. Like 'God your vagina is going to be in tatters afterwards' kind of thing. As horrified as I'd be I'd respect them more for their imaginative small talk.

well i was the opposite i had loads of people tell me how small i am and it really started to freak me out thinking there was something wrong with my baby. i will never comment on a pregnant womans bump! (i dont think i ever did before but i will never again)

To the girl you work across from I would say something like: 'Yes I am quite aware that my stomach is increasing in size. Thats what happens during pregnancy'. People amaze me.

Oh I had that from about 30 weeks on O:| O:| O:| I was really sensitive when somebody said anything about my baby bump, but with most people would grin and bare it. But there were 2 guys at work that would joke and say how "FAT" I had gotten and my DH's SIL would always comment how big I was when she saw me and then via text tell me I must be gone huge altogether by now >:o( O:| try to brush it off as much as you can, but I will say my one regret was not being rude back cos these people are not worried about being rude to you. :wv

thanks girls.. i was feeling a bit down about it yesterday (ok well i was more like murdering someone then down) but you guys cheered me up!! I do like the idea of saying "Well in case you missed it i am pregnant.." that should shut them up!!
