I'm having this all the time it's so frustrating. I get told 'not long now!?' And 'how long left? Not a lot surely' and kind meaning words but they irritate the life out of me.
ive found myself responding by saying I've got 13 long weeks left and I hope he stays inside for every single one of them!
Don't get me wrong I'm sure people aren't trying to be nasty but I'd prefer nothing at all to be said. Or perhaps a 'when are you due?' Rather than a 'not long now!' When they have no idea how long at all lol. 🙄

Oh my I have this already and I'm 17 weeks. At a club my DD goes to there was a pregnant lady who was the same size as me bump and all. I just assumed we were at the same stage. Went to group the other day and she had just had her baby! X

I've been getting 'are you sure there's 1 in there?' It depends a lot on how much I've eaten, what position he's in etc. Today I look huge but sometimes not so much!

I finally started to wear maternity tops, which make my belly look a lot bigger and this morning the secretary at my office today squealed at the top of her lungs that I've popped and started rubbing my belly like I'm a genie in a bottle.

I was ready to smack her. What makes people think they can just touch you or comment on your body size if you're pregnant? Ughh so annoying.

This past weekend I got "Wow - you suddenly look REALLY pregnant! And you're totally waddling - just so you know"

Um... thanks for the update?

Oh Yes! I hate this! I feel it is such an invasion. If I don't bring up my pregnancy- I don't really expect others to either. I was at the gas station the other day and a lady said "Oh are you pregnant?" and I said yes but it made me feel really weird that all these ladies were standing around appraising my belly. I couldn't get me and my daughter out of there fast enough and they were all asking when I was due etc etc. Sorry but not everyone is a public person! Sorry- rant over. Its been bothering me!
