I knew I was poking out already. But I didn't realize it was enough for strangers to make that gutsy assumption.
We have a "cheese & cider" store in our weird little town who's homemade cider I go nuts over. It's all different flavors. It's so good. The owner came over to talk to Kaden and asked could he give him a little since it's non-alcoholic. He said so good for this baby, and patted my belly and said and this one too.
After we left I had an older woman stop and say wow, you're going to have your ands full with 2 so close together.
So, kind of annoyed but glad it's noticable enough people know I'm pregnant, not just fat.
Oh my gosh.. I was at the zoo yesterday and I KNOW I look pregnant, but there were so many other women there who LOOKED pregnant, but I KNOW that they weren't.. So I was all self conscious and I kept putting my hand on my belly. I think everyone just thinks I'm fat still.
I haven't had anyone notice the belly yet. I'm 17 weeks now and do indeed have a cite little baby bump. If I wear my hoody it's hard to really see it's baby and not fat though. In my jeans and t-shirt I think I do look pregnant. I love to rub my belly or keep my hand on it too. Sometimes I just need to rub my belly though cuz I have some pains though. I can't wait for the comments to start!
I had someone ask when I was due today for the first time too and it seriously made my day to be seen as pregnant and not chubby I don't know how I'd react if a stranger just touched my belly though, probably not well Lol.
I get touched all the time and told "It's a GIRL!" or "It's a BOY!" by strangers. Wow, and I wasted all that money on intelligender...to think I could have just asked a complete stranger.
People comment all the time. Sometimes they just ask when I'm due, if I know what I'm having, etc...which is fine. This time I have NOT been asked if I'm having twins and "Am I sure?" Which is weird because I've gained more weight this time than with the other two!!! Of course, I started out skinnier...and in my pics...I look way better this time than with the others!!!!
honestly, comments i can handle but its the TOUCHING that urks me. its not a problem if i know you but strangers (to me) its like a petting zoo or something. Thats how i felt when i was pregnant with my first one. its like a hand magnet when people see prego bellies.
LOL! I am on the other end of the spectrum. I have been getting comments for over a month now! I couldn't believe how fast I popped. But the problem with that is I look a lot further along than I am so I get the "When are you due?" "OH WOW! September! You have a long way to go!!!" It gets kinda annoying!
