Okay, I'm starting to get a complex! In the past week over eight people have commented on how BIG I am. Really? It wouldn't be so bad if it was one or two but almost everyone that brought up my pregnancy talked about the size of my belly. I've heard comments like "Are you sure you're not having twins?" "Maybe one baby is hiding behind the other one." "You're STILL working? Aren't you like due any day now?" "Wow, you still have a few months and you're already THAT big?" Thank you, no really thank you for all those lovely comments. (Yes, I'm being sarcastic.)
What is it about being pregnant gives random people the license to touch you, give you unsolicited advice and even comment (unflattering I might add) about your size. Now I haven't gained much weight, I'm going into my 7th month and I've only gained 13 pounds. By all the books that's healthy weight gain. Also I've only gained baby, it's all in my belly. I'm also carrying this baby like a beach ball, it's all out in front. My first pregnancy I carried my daughter wider around my hips. Sigh.
Now, I'm not sure if it's just the comments about my size that's getting to me or that it's unsolicited advice from people I don't know. During your pregnancy what kinds of comments did you hear? What was the weirdest thing you heard? The best? The most unflattering? How many people invaded your space just to cop a feel?
