@roxy821:  Sorry you are encountering these awful statements. I’m very big for 22 weeks, but luckily nobody has said anything negative to me. (Perhaps behind my back, but not to my face!) I have gotten the belly pats, though, which I can’t stand. Don’t touch the belly!!

I’m so sorry you are having to deal with that. I’m really dreading that part of pregnancy. I’m only 9 weeks and I already have a gut and the numbers on the scale are going up. I feel so fat already and the bad part is that i’m not pregnant enough to look pregnant…i just look like i’ve gained weight haha.

I had a coworker who didn’t even know I was pregnant at 6 months. She just thought I was getting fat. At 6 months my stomach was a balloon. Don;t let it get to you. I had strangers thinking I was 9 months when I was 7. Some baby bellies are bigger than others. Be proud and rock it!

So sorry to hear people telling you that….my mom gained 70 lbs with me and 50 with my sister…of course, she was 100 lbs at the time and lost ALL the weight with no stretch marks. 

I worry sometimes that I’ll get that big and I’m petite with a short torso so I’ll be gigantic.  My cousin who’s 5′ gained 40 lbs, looked like Jessica Simpson, and had a 10 lb baby naturally…WTF???  Didn’t think that was possible. 

To all the bees expecting, I’ve NEVER touched another woman’s pregnant belly….I don’t see the point.  I’ve had some ask me to feel the baby kicking and I still feel weirded out by it all.

@roxy821:  People are idiots.  Don’t let them bring you down!  You are doing the most beautiful and wonderful thing that a woman can do.  Your body will do what it’s supposed to. I think you look stunning, myself 🙂

Man, if that happens to me, I think that first off, there’d be a conversation with Darling Husband about how I don’t want to hear him telling me I’m huge. Then I’d let co-workers know (as delicately as possible), that I don’t want to hear it from them either.

I’m sure you look beautiful, OP! Don’t let them get you down – you’re doing everything right.

Um yeah my dad said “Did you notice when you started getting really fat, or did it hit you all at once?”

Ehhh.. J. Simpson gained about 70 pounds when she was pregnant (she admitted this in Elle magazine I think? Or in an interview). She really was as big as a house, but you know what? She also admitted that she was slathering pop tarts with butter and eating macaroni and cheese.Plus, she’s short to begin with (I saw her at Nordstrom once, and I think she’s like 5’2- she’s tiny!) so not a lot of room for baby to go anyway. You know you’re being healthy, and I bet you just gain your healthy amount of baby weight by the end.

People are just SO rude sometimes. I don’t know what’s wrong with them, commenting on how “big” they think you are. My poor coworker gets it all the time, she’s pregnant with her 2nd and people keep asking her if she’s “sure” about when her due date is, and “are you sure it’s not twins?” Her doctor says she’s on track to have a big baby too, which runs in her family.

People need to just shut it! 🙂

I have dealt with this BS too and it SUCKS!!! I wish people would learn some manners. I was a super sknniy size two at my wedding last year and now i am on track to gain 40-60lbs. people tell me the big baby stuff and all of it. It hurts and infuriates me but all i can do is whats bets for me and baby and ignore their stupidity. i know many would kill to be pregnant like i am, no matter the weight, and i know i am pefectly capable of slimming down post baby. many people show at different stages too. i say screw em! unless your doctor cares ignore it. enjoy your baby curves! xxxx

All you need is a healthy baby!  Someone at work said to me today, “wow you get bigger and bigger everyday!”

Your Darling Husband is proud because he “planted a good seed” if you know what i mean…

tell your Darling Husband to stop saying that you’re huge, that it’s making you selfconcious.
