Fat jokes!


I think im just being way to sensitive over here!

But im so sick of my mums constant "your fat" jokes, its making me paranoid that i look more fat than pregnant grrr lol

I know there only jokes.... But still, im soo spotty, got crap dry skin and my boobs have gone down hill, the last thing i wanna add to the list is looking fat.

Im being such a drama queen lol

Just tell her these jokes are making you feel uncomfortable, whether or not she finds them funny she should stop if its upsetting her. maybe she thinks you find them funny too.. just tell her firmly that you dont.

It's not you being sensitive...it's just rude and it hurts! I got SOOO sick and tired of people telling me how HUGE I was....and asking how many I had in there! Not funny in the slightest.
Just ignore or say something rude back!

my mum is the same, i have had comments like , diet time after this baby and she made a comment about me and OH being two fatties together!!!

i know its all in 'good humor' but i feel unattractive as it is and apart from OH and the odd mention from my gran just want people to comment that i am looking nice and stop saying things like... your massive! or check the size of your stomach!! lol im pregnant!!!!! grrrr xxxx

my mom does the same thing. I tell her to stop but she just thinks I'm over sensitive. I just stop answering the phone if I'm not in the mood to hear it haha.

I was tubby beforehand so no-one dares say a word after my boss said "ooh your showing" to which I loudly replied nope that was there before! Heh! Mums can be so insensitive I'd have to agree with the other ladies on this one!

You could tell her: 'I'm pregnant so at least I have an excuse!'
