Anyone's belly so big they look full term.

People are shocked every time I say ... "July"
When I caught a plane at 24 weeks I had to show them my paperwork as they thought I was lying about the due date.

Yes I had something similar at church the other day. Except it was how many weeks to go? When I told them I was 28 weeks with 12 weeks to go they had a shocked face and asked me if I was sure it wasn't twins. Lol. I don't take offence though. As long as bubs is growing and healthy

Nope. Strangers have not noticed I am pregnant yet. I have definitely popped though so I'm expecting someone to comment soon. I have been wearing form fitting clothes to accentuate my baby bump. I think a few people have given me second looks but it isn't big enough that people feel comfortable inquiring.

Though I don't think that I look full term.... I do get asked... Just yesterday I was walking into work and a mall walker struck up a conversation with me... Though some of her questions were kind of awkward.

Technically I'm already measuring full term but I have twins in there so... but nobody has asked me that yet, maybe because I am a plus size lady my giant bump looks smaller than it is.

People ask me when I'm due but I don't think they are expecting me to say in just a couple weeks? I'm tired of being asked what I'm having since I don't know!!!!!

I've been asked a couple times "how much longer?" And my reply is always "a really long time!"

Yeah, I'm 5"2 as well and all belly. A couple of weeks ago one of the directors at my company laughed and said "Hmmm, you look different..." I said "What? You only realized it just now?" And he said "Well, a little bird told me today and before that I didn't want to assume... I've already made that mistake once in my career!"

I was standing behind a cupboard at work on Monday and was asked "Oh, did you have the baby over the weekend?" then I moved away from the cupboard and said "No... It's still there".

Yep, I popped it out on the weekend and back to work on Monday morning.

Yes, I just say "why do I look fat to you?" usually shuts them up, LOL. I do kind of feel bad, but it is none of a strangers business how far along I am!

Last night I went to Wal-mart just for cleaning supplies. I have finally hit the nesting stage... I bought like $37 worth of cleaning stuff. When I went to check out the lady made some comment on "nesting" and asked when I was due. I told her the latter part of July she made some comment on how I look ready to pop... she thought next month. THANK YOU! I don't already feel large in everyway possible I love when random people tell me about how large I look... so kind.
