Earlier today, I was walking into the preschool to pick up my 5 year-old and one of the directors said "You look like you're about to have a baby!" Nope! I told her that I was having twins and only 24 weeks. That's the first comment that I got like that. I'm sure there will be others as I get further along.

Oh goodness, you look great for 24 weeks! I seriously hope we don't start getting these types of comments. I wasn't expecting that for a while! At least you have the 'excuse' of having twins. I don't know what I'll do if someone says something like that to me. Haha!

Lol I always get mad at the comments people make. Before it was cuz nobody could tell I was preggo (which means they thought I was chubby/fat) now I get mad cuz since I've popped people always assume I'm due any day.

Boo!!! I think people should start thinking before they speak! I remember when I was over a month away with my last pregnancy I was visiting my grandma in her nursing home pretty often and the nurse ALWAYS commented on how she couldn't believe how big I was and that I still had over a month to go. RUDE!

I really think that most people have no CLUE what a woman who is about to give birth really looks like. people should think before they speak.

Some old man at work told me I look like I "have 2 in there"

I told him I was flattered because most days you can't even tell there is 1.

thanks to claire1979 for my gorgeous siggy

LOL! Gotta love it. Danny's preschool teacher, about a week back, told me I had "really filled out all of a sudden."

At least if you get the "you look like you're having twins!" comment it'll be accurate haha

I just started getting comments at work about how "I really DO have a belly" [I'll give them SOME credit considering it's not as noticeble in work clothes] I really can wait for the "You look like you're about the pop" comments now...
