    I actually had 2 compliments today, one was from 2 policewomen who said "you're looking very glamourous for a pregnant woman!" (I didn't know pregnant women stereotypically looked like scrubbers but it made me feel good nevertheless!) and "well I see you haven't put on ANY weight at all- you're all bump!" which was so nice to hear when all I feel like right now is a fat mess....these compliments have been really REALLY appreciated when all I normally get when I'm out in public are GLARES from people and the sounds of people staring and then clearing their throats, because although I am 22, I look about 16...has anyone else had any really nice compliments from strangers? I'm always reading about the rude things people have had to endure from the general public but never the nice things! xx

    No, no compliments for me either :( Best I've got is "oh, you're not as big as I thought you'd be"
    I took that as a kind-of compliment, but I do look like crap so it's not surprising!!!

    Love your comment about all pregnant women looking like scrubbers lol!!! That made me giggle - what are we supposed to look like??!!!!!?? :)

    I did have someone today saying I looked really good . . . I said just wait until I have had LO then I will look like crap again!

    I also had someone say - 'you do really look pregnant now' (said in a nice way tho) - I just laughed and said, 'well that's good, one month to go and I finally look pregnant!'

    I get a mixture of comments from a couple I got today (conveniently when I was feeling tired, sick and generally like crap) "Jesus woman you are huge" (from one of the directors where I work)- Hmmm cheers you stupid ignorant moron and "Are you still here?!?!? you look like you are going to go any moment" (from another ignorant man who is a contractor where I work, used to work with me and was an ass then as well so no change there) to the nicer "you are doing so well, not long now" and "pregnancy suits you" comments, I get the feeling those are out of sympathy as I really am not looking too good. My Maternity cover just cannot believe how people speak to me as she is following me around most of the time so therefore hears all the comments and how many of them I have to put up with and can't get over it.

    I did get a nice comment in a shop today where I was getting lunch for a couple of people in my office as well as my own. the lady on the counter was being really nice to me tho in hindsight perhaps she thought I was going to scoff all of those sandwiches myself!! LOL!!

    Aye I get the "You've put on no weight, you're all bump n boobs" It's nice seeing as I'm just shy of 200lbs at the moment haha.
    The best part was when I was in a shop the other day and the check out woman said that, and I replied with "40lbs of bump!" her eyes nearly fell out her head LOL.
    It's true tho, my legs, arms, butt, face have not gained any weight what so ever!

    Ah bet that made you day :thumbup:

    I haven't had any compliments from strangers but a lot of friends/family say "You're all bump" which i am taking to be a good thing as it must mean i don't look fat anywhere else (although in my childish mind i imagine a giant belly walking down the street instead of me, with no arms or legs or a head :rofl: )

    My doctor (who is a total sweety) said yesterday (as I commented that I felt like a walrus - while trying to get up on the bed) that I was all bump and had put on only the exact amount for baby's growth rate.

    Hurrah!!!

    Take that hubby, I said to him the other day that I didnt think I'd put weight on anywhere except bump, but he disagreed and said my butt and legs looked bigger. Ha! Charming! I do always tell him to be honest I suppose!!
