“You guys ever gonna get married or are you just gonna keep popping out kids?” – my friend’s brother. 

He did have a point – we had 3 kids before we got married.

@nachos:  Ever since I was a child, I’ve had round cheeks–just the way my face is!  I used to hate it when people said I had chipmunk cheeks.

I had one person, when I was pregnant with Moose, who said “but you haven’t even bought a house yet.” It was really weird, but I have never got anything like that. Maybe once more people find out I’m pregnant again.

A lot of people said to me ” I can’t WAIT until you get fat” I thought that was really mean.

Well I wasn’t pregnant, but when I gained a lot of weight back when I was depressed several years ago, I had a lot of people point it out any way they could justify it which I thought was rude. My Gmom said “Wow, you’ve really gained a lot of weight! I mean, you look good!” Other people made comments about me ‘filling out’.. okay.. I was actually overweight and unhealthy so I don’t buy the ‘compliment’ spin.

What I’m really dreading when/if we do decide to get pregnant is people telling me what I can and cannot consume. I think that’s SUPER obnoxious too. My sister had a coworker (male) critisize her for eating chocolate during her pregnancy. She almost clocked him. I also plan on still having caffeine and some wine in limited amounts and I know people will crucify me for that.

@moderndaisy:  Oh, man, the telling people not to eat stuff is the worst.  Though when my mother suspected a good friend of mine was TTC (not for being nosy… my friend was asking her very specific questions that tipped her off), she told her that she had better drink some wine while pregnant because the guidelines were overprotective and assumed women were idiots.

On Christmas Eve my grandfather asked me if I was pregnant, which I am 100% not, and when I said his response was “welllllllllll” and stared at my stomach. I seriously wanted to cry.

Ohhhhh so many people keep putting their foot in their mouth when it comes to my pregnancy its ridiculous!

My Mother-In-Law saw me the day after Christmas and exclaimed how I wasn’t showing at all (I’m 24 wks) then when she saw me on NYE she had suddenly decided I had a huge belly and lifted my shirt to show everyone in the room (about 15 people) Ridiculous!

Today I walked into a different center than I normally work at and someone first tells me I look very tired then when she came back into the room she says “I just can’t believe how you’re wasting away to nothing- I’m not sure you’re really pregnant”

I know its strange but I get so tired of people commenting on how I look so much better with the weight I’ve dropped during pregnancy. This is the one time in my life I’m allowed to have a belly and look pregnant and people keep telling me how thin I look. Strange…

Nachos, I totally missed that you’re pregnant.  Congrats!  And, yes, I went from people telling me how small I was to someone asking me if there were twins and another if I thought I’d make it all the way to my due date–in maybe a week’s time.  So apparently I had one week of being appropriately-sized.  Also?  Yeah, if that guy’s wife has been pregnant 3 times?  He should totally know better.  He’s lucky to have survived 3 pregnancies/deliveries.
