I work in the medical field and just this week my patients are starting to ask if I am pregnant. So far everyone of them that has said something has told me I am too young to have a baby and my belly is too small for how far along I am. I guess I should take both as a complement but seems like these people are clueless, lol. I am almost 29 and already have a 4 year old. They would probably be amazed if I told them I have been married for 8 years too, lol!
I'm not sure how I would take that..I mean I hate when people think you are too young to have a child, why if I am married and can afford why am I too young..I get looks all the time with Aidan, especially after I first had him, I was 22 when I had him and I swear I would get looks and people would stare at me and I just know they were thinking she shouldn't have a kid already. ugh!! Yea I guess I would take it as a compliment but sometimes I just wish people would keep their mouths shut!!
I also had my son right after turning 22 and got some looks sometimes...but you know what, screw them! I've been with hubby for 9 years now, married for 4 and we are in a much better financial position then most middle aged people. So if 22 and 24 is too young to have kids they can stuff it LOL
29? nah, you're not too young. You're prolly just mega beautiful. and I get the.. " you're 24 weeks preg?" comment all the time. as well as the " you're too young." statement.. but I'm 19, so I guess that's acceptable... hmm.
Take both as a compliment you super young tiny momma to be you :-P
Lil' Mister, Spencer James is due to arrive 11/1/11!
GO TEAM BLUE!!
You are not too young! You must just look young. I'm 28 with a 4 year old and one on the way too. We're pretty normal age for having babies.
Take the small comments as compliments! I am getting the opposite. A lady working in a children's boutique where I was buying things asked me when I was due. When I said November, she said, "That's going to be one BIG baby huh! Pretty big belly there." Needless to say, I only bought what was in my hand and made it to the car in time to cry. I have gained 14 lbs as of 22 weeks. Now, it is all in my belly and sticking straight out, but that doesn't give her any reason to tell me I'm huge.
