The random comments from strangers. Maybe its because I waddle so much, or maybe I am just finally big enough for strangers to feel safe commenting. But yesterday every person I saw said something about how I must be close now and oh my when are you due LOL. I knew eventually it would happen, just didn't think it would take so long. But the comments are coming now. I think I will just stay home. And of course if one of the kids are with me they want to ask my kids if they are excited to have a brother or sister.

Cute! I don't get those for the most part. I have gotten the "you must be due anytime" from a cousin and I wanted to smack her since I was less than 31 weeks. I can't wait to hear this when I am closer to my due date.

I have gotten those comments for over a month now! OMG... Seriously whenever I go places people are like "oh the baby is coming soon", "are you excited for the baby to be here soon?", "Are you having twins dear?"

I say that I have 3 months left and they are shocked. Great, just great.

Oh my.

No one says this stuff to me, but it's probably because I tower over everyone and don't give off "approach me" vibes.

How tall are you? And since I am thinking about it for the thousandth time: How come I still have never seen a picture of you? With how adorable your son is I am sure you are super a*& pretty!

I got the kinds of comments Missy is with DS and DD. Everyone kept asking from about 25 weeks on if I was sure that I wasn't having twins. Hmm.... I wonder what they'll say now that I am.

You've seen pictures of me (I posted a self portrait from Flickr). Also, my face is right there next to my screen name. Also also, my mother posted a picture of me from this morning (son's first day of school) on Facebook and it should have alerted you since you're my friend. I am 5' 10". My hair is brown and I am a Leo. Speaking of which, no birthday card! Pfff.

True, but he is a man. I am taller than almost every woman I meet and they are usually the commenters of the world.

Courtney, my DD (Mia) is expected to be between 5'10 and 6'0! Anything to look out for????

Jess, I dont know about you, but I LOVE THOSE COMMENTS! Gets me more excited that the end is drawing near! I do have to say that this time I got them much earlier, and I just have to explain that Ive been pregnant for 2yrs in a row now, lol......the twins comment only came up once though, and for some reason, I think I look smaller right now than with Mia????

I think being tall is great. I suppose there are times when it's more annoying (buying clothes, maybe), but overall, I don't have to put up with much and I don't need stools as often.

I am right there with Courtney. Tall and somewhat imposing I am also 5'10'' (which I love being, BTW) and I can come across somewhat witchy-with-a-B...so most people don't approach me and make comments. Lol.

I def DO look pregnant...but not "ready to pop" or anything. Most of the time, if someone happens to ask, they are surprised I am due in about a month. I have no frame of reference, since everyone carries so differently. I know I am bigger now with this baby than I ever was with Liam. But it is still not so big. And the height helps with the waddle...I have yet to do it

I don't mind the comments at all .
And I am 5'4" and people don't touch my belly so I must give off a touch me a die vibe . I just thought it was interesting how they picked up all of a sudden.
On another side not Ashlee I just realized that with your due date you could have your baby before me

Yeah... so.. I'm ridiculously small framed and I'm already showing at 9 weeks! People are starting to be able to tell. I SWEAR it's not a "food baby." I had a flat tummy before I got pregnant. I was wearing a dress on Sunday that was made out of jersey knit, and I got a LOT of very pointed stares... ha ha ha. I'm short, I'm thin, and baby's got NOWHERE to go but out. Even my chiropractor commented at how much my uterus is already sticking out lol! Good grief...

I always loved when people actually noticed I was pregnant and would ask me questions


and... I am also 5'10"! It definitely contributes to me looking "smaller" in my pregnancy,at my delivery I only looked maybe 7 months along.
