You have had to post in JM two consecutive days about comments that have irritated you...

Totdays gem was from my Mother. I don't see her too often (even though she lives just a few miles from my house) but the last 2 Fridays when we have gotten together to do some x-mas shopping. Last Friday was the first time she had seen me since my baby shower (Nov. 10th).. she saw my belly and immediately said "Wow you are huge"... not in a cute loving way but really said wow you are huge.. at the time I thought ...well yeah that's what happens when you don't see a pregnant woman in over a month. While we were shopping she proceeded to tell me that it looked like I had a basketball under my shirt... same ole same ole... I didn't say anything about it then but I really didn't like it much..especially since us prego women have to hear from people we don't know on a daily basis...

So today we go shopping and I picked up a dress and put it up to my belly and she said "woah yeah..no looks like a basketball" I just looked at her and said ..you know what I'm going to say that to you after I'm done being pregnant and see how you like it".. she said "oh I don't care, I wouldn't mind" ... So I said "well I do" ...I said you can say it in a different way or something but just imagine you going 9 months with people constantly telling you how "BIG" you are or how "big your baby is going to be" I said it kinda gets old after a while. She said well I think your just being a little sensitive..I said "well yeah...because IM PREGNANT"...so why don't you be a little sensative towards me???

So it was funny because after that we had 2 people that commented on me being pregnant.. and one lady did comment on how much "bigger" i will be during the next month and I just glared and my Mom ..thinking.."See I told you"...I get the "BIG" comments ALL the time, the last person I need them from are my family! Thank you very much!

Wow people, it's called tact...use it! I don't get the big comments, because I'm just not big (growth restriction does that), but I get the "wow that baby is gonna be tiny!" or "no way you are due that soon" or "are you sure you're eating enough?" Is it really any of your business?! Especially when I serve tables and they ask about it and say one of those stupid comments, like I'm going to go in depth to you about my baby growing problems so you can know why I'm small (and I'm not even THAT small lol). It's 99% of the time from women with kids, but still they could have some tact or be less nosey is all I'm saying lol.

People blow. I usually just laugh it off but I get how it's hurtful especially since we live in a society where women are told thin is beautiful. Last night I worked an event and I got a lot of "you're going to pop!" Comments and a lot of "it's a boy right" and I'm like no stupid it's a girl I've just lightened! Sheesh! Everyone is an ultrasound tech these days

For some reason pregnant bellies completely remove any filter people may have between their brains and their mouths. It's like people see us and their brains are flooded with ridiculous comments and they have no choice but to begin spewing them.

This is so true! I just don't get it!! People can be stupid!!

Sorry your mom is being so rude. Mines the same way...which is why I tend to avoid her.

I was told the other day in the mall that I looked like I was blossoming, when she asked when I was due she's like wow you're ready to blossom alright! I guess that's better then explode!

Haha yeah I think that we all get comments and most of them time we brush them off...until the day when the hormones kick in and we find someone to take it out on! I think in my case it was just a little worse because I felt like I could say something to her because she was my mom, and with other people I usually just laugh it off.
I like the blossoming comment though that sounds better than getting ready to pop, getting ready to explode, it's a boy or simply ..you're just BIG! I from this day forward will never comment on a pregnant lady's belly! I think I will just say Awhhh how cute or something positive because you never know how they might be feeling that day
