haha this sounds exactly like my best friend, she’s 5 feet tall, was 120 pounds before she got pregnant and a size 5, when she was 8 months pregnant she was 115 pounds, and wearing a size 3, after the baby, 108 and a size 0. 

When she was 9 months she had something that resembeled an adorable little beer belly. 

They’re jealous. 🙂 You’re going to have an adorable baby and not have to gain a ton of weight while you do it!

I dealt with this too.  People didn’t even begin to guess I was pregnant until I was about 7-8 months along.  When I told them, people would always say I looked great and didn’t even look pregnant or that my bump was so small.  They are really trying to compliment you, even though it doesn’t sound like it.  (unless you get the random whacko that says, omg you are too small you must not be eating enough for your baby!).  Try to enjoy your pregnancy and take some photos so that in years to come you can appreciate your beautiful belly/curves.

When people make these sorts of comments, what it usually means is “damn, you look good!”.

I love it when people tell me I’m tiny… or that I’m “all baby”  🙂  I think people generally mean that as a compliment.

I think people wrongly think it’s a compliment – i.e., “You haven’t gained a ton of weight!” – but they don’t fully realize the sensitivity of weight at any time, let alone a pregnancy.

There is never an appropriate way to comment on a woman’s weight. “You’re huge!” or “You’re so little!” included.

I felt like that at the beginning of my pregnancy–made me feel like an inadequate mother! People are just being nice, though. Now that the girls are both having growth spurts, I’m starting to look a lot bigger and am now getting the opposite sort of comments. Believe me, it’s nicer to be told you’re too small than that you’ve got a massive bump!

@abirdword:  +1

I’m 5’2″ and my pre-PG street size is a 4. Right now, I’m gaining all my weight in the midsection. I’m definitely round in the midsection but I get a lot of you’re all baby or you’re tiny comments too because I haven’t gained anywhere else.

I don’t think when people say you are tiny that it is an insult that you haven’t gained enough or whatever. They’re just trying to make you feel good because there are a lot of women that get angry when people insinuate they’re large while PG.

They are complimenting you.  Those of us less inclined to be tiny are jealous, and think you are lucky to be so cute, so it may not be clear that’s it a compliment, but it is.

Everyone carries differently. You can always respond with, “My doctor says I’m fine.”.

I am with you 1000000% girl!!!   I am 36 weeks saturday and EVERY single person who sees me and says smething about hte pregnancy has something to say about my bump being small.

Examples of what you may get in the future:

“Are you sure? Did your doctor count or not count the first two weeks?”

“Wow!! Are you dieting a lot too?  like do you eat?”

“Gosh she must be cramped in there – does the doctor say anything about you needing to gain more weight?”

“Ive got money that you will go much longer than July 20th – you are definitely not 36 weeks pregnant”

Like MIND your OWN f’n business and just tell me I look cute, and congratulations.  None of your business what my doctor says, believes, and certianly none of your business if I eat properly or work out too much!!

i am lucky – eat constantly and havent worked out since 2004  and they are offensive making us feel like we are doing something wrong when we arent.

I think maybe they are just so used to seeing bigger pregnant women that seeing you is something they are not used to.  

I got that when I was pregnet with my dd.  I lost 20lbs from morning siskness so I had no belly even at 4 months and she was my second.  I am def not small or tiny this time around tho with my 4th. LOL

It’s weird how people always have an opinion on the size of pregnant women. Last time I was pregnant I always heard that I was tiny and I heard that A LOT!

This time I hear both. I’m 23 weeks pregnant and have heard “wow, you’re really getting big” and “so, you’re going to be tiny like last time”.

Come on people, just say I look good and keep it at that!!
