    I was at a social event at the end of November and several men insisted I take their seats in the bar. It was a nice feeling, I must admit... possibly they were just polite anyway...

    I only have to travel 1 stop into the city centre as i live near enough in the city centre, i have always walked but as its winter and obviously with my growing belly i've started jumping on the train. I didn't even take him up on his offer as i was only going one stop!!
    Just thought it'd be fun to see when strangers started noticing each of us is pregnant, it was a mini milestone in my head haha!

    I haven't been offered a seat since I drive all the time but people started asking when I am due and how far along I was at around five months. It's cute :)

    Hasn't happened yet, but honestly I don't think strangers can tell yet either.

    I got offered my first seat this morning and I am 22 weeks. It was a lovely lady, the guys on the train clearly saw me and did nothing! Most people look out of the window or at their newspapers to avoid having to give up their seat.

    Nobody has yet, but while my belly is pretty obvious normally, my winter coat hides a lot of it, so I just look fat :p

    However, I'd just like to add that I continue to be mown down by women with buggies in the street, even if my belly's obviously on show. I'm so fed up with it that I now shout after them "don't worry, I'm pregnant, but by all means mow me down!". LOL, don't get on the wrong side of me!

    SIDE NOTE: Please don't turn into Crazy Buggy Mum when you have your babies. You ladies are lovely; I couldn't stand to see that happen to you :flower:

    Just today I was offered a seat on the bus by a man who made it sort of obvious that my just-barely-obvious belly was what made him let me have the seat, considering the fact he looked at my belly and immediately stood up hah :blush:

    I was on the tube at 9 months, the day I was due too with my oldest, so was very heavily pregnant and huge, not one person would give up their seat for me, except the lady who had a go at everyone cause they just sat there and did nothing.......

    I dont use public transport so cant say but a couple of weeks ago I went to a baby shower. It was a good friend but I dont really know her friends IYSWIM? There was another pregant girl there who was only 14 weeks but its her second so was showing more. She also didnt know my friends friends as was a work collegue. Everyone was fussing over her, making sure she had a seat etc. I had to sit on the floor :-(

    I'd heard about this but as I was on the tube the other day I asked at the tube station if they had a badge which indicates your pregnant and they gave me one. It shouldn't really leave anyone in any doubt
