    Sorry this is more of a rant than anything else I guess. I'm just tired of hearing.. "OMG you don't even LOOK pregnant!" Because when I look in the mirror, granted I do not have a huge bump.. umm I still have a bump, so umm if I don't look pregnant than that means I just look FAT!? :cry:

    Another one that bugs me is:
    Them:"When are you due!?"
    Me: July 18th :D
    Them: "OH wow you still have a long ways to go!"

    I hate that!!! I'm like umm actually its only a few months away so its not THAT long! I guess I am just so anxious for my little one, I don't want to be told I have SUCH a LOOONG ways to go still....

    Anyway... if you have made it this far reading my rant THANK YOU for listening
    :hugs:

    I'm tired of the not showing comments either. or when they say im small for being so far along they ask "are you sure your eating enough?"or "is that healthy?

    If my high risk specialist didn't say anything then im going to go with no it is okay to not gain a lot of show too early. everyone is different I was huge by this stage with my son

    I had it just today - "you're still really small!". No I'm not!! I clearly have a bump but I was wwearing a baggy hoodie - the only hooded warm item of clothing I have that will still fit me lol
    And 2 mins later had another girl rub my bump saying how much I'm growing and I'll have a baby before I know it!
    Everyone has an opinion. I bet you any money you look lovely and pregnant but they just want something interesting to say :flower:

    I hate that as well!
    Everyone goes "mmm I'm pretty sure at your stage I was much bigger than that, mmm you're not showing at all"
    Okay, good for you!

    oh man!!! i would so LOVE for someone to tell me how small i look! believe me, it is just as bad (if not worse!) to hear - oh my GOD you are huge!!!! and you still have HOW long to go??

    that is soooo very discouraging and makes you feel so ugly and well - HUGE!

    i dont understand why people have to comment about size anyway. just say congrats, you look great and be done with it. people are so rude and clueless sometimes :(

    sorry you are having to deal with ignorant people.

    agreed. I am a small woman, but get the "OMG are you expecting twins...YOU'RE HUGE" a lot. The grass is not greener over here. Trust me.

    I feel the exact same!! I see a bump... and when people say that I dont look pregnant, It makes me feel like a whale... because ive gained 9 pounds and, and 4 inches in my waist.....
