So today I was at work .. minding my own business .. getting some water & out of nowhere this lady, whom I know but am far from friends with, decides to tell me:
"awww, look at your cheeks, your face is getting chunky!"
lovely .. real nice lady .. thanks for being so nice about telling me I'm I'm getting fat. What do you say to that? This is how I responded:
"Yep, I'm gaining weight" ... then under my breathe, "jerk".
I just can't believe some people. & she met all my criteria for someone who I thought would never say anything like that to me:
1. woman
2. mother
3. overweight

That would tick me off.

That's one of the first things my dh said to me. "I can tell you're pregnant." And I thought how sweet, am I glowing, is it my little bump?

Nope. He said, "your face is getting bigger" Gee thanks honey

I have chunkier cheeks anyway so I'm really self-conscious about it.

But any mother should know that the face grows along with the belly - it's just what mother nature does and it's barely noticeable unless you're looking for a flaw. Shame on that woman!

Sorry she was such a jerk!

I've had that too. Women will come up to me and look at my belly and ask "when are you due"

When I say October they looked shocked and say "oh, you have a LONG way to go, don't you."

Gee thanks.
What is it about us being pregnant that people thinks gives them the freedom to speak to us without thinking?

I would have said "thanks I was trying to get my cheeks to look like yours. I'm close but not quite there yet."

What a witch!

That is so rude!!

Our IT manager (who btw is WAY overweight) wouldn't stop talking the other week about how I'm "so big" for 5 months and how she wasn't that big at all when she was pregnant. I wanted to slap her.

But on the other hand, I have had very sweet people tell me I look tiny for 5 months along. So that makes me feel better.

Yeah, and family's not immune either - with my last pregnancy, my MOM says to me..."aaww, I can't believe my baby has lost her figure"
Lovely.
I've never forgotten that little "off-hand" comment, though I bet she has.
