A very nice mother of 5 asked me this at the gym today. She broke the ice by asking if this was my first baby, and I said, "No, 3rd." Then she said, "what are you, 8 months?" I said, "No, 5, I'm just popping out really early!"

Omgosh, wait till she sees me at 8..!

I looked 8 with my 3rd! I am already looking bigger than I had thought. I know I have extra pudge there, but my stomach was no where near this big.

I wish people had filters.

I'm getting the opposite: "You are so tiny!" which makes me mad because I can't fit any of my old clothes!!! I really want to say to them, "****it, I've earned this so far."

When I was visiting my grandfather this last week one of his nurses said she could tell I was having a girl by the way I was carrying. I was like, "Really? I'm not due until May!" The look of shock on her face was priceless. She was like MAY?! I couldn't help but laugh, I am not looking forward to the fun comments later like are you SURE it isn't twins or jeeze, how long are they going to let you go?? But for now, I am able to laugh at them.

I tell ya, some people just need to keep their thoughts to themselves! Sorry you had this experience. You think she would know better to say something when she has 5 kids- I bet she had some rude comments too. Jeesh.

It's ok, I wasn't super offended, just a little thrown off. I thought that her knowing it was a 3rd baby, and being a mom of 5 herself, she might have known better!

I swear, I am going to act shocked when a stranger mentions my belly next time. I keep forgetting!! I want to be like, "huh?? I'm not pregnant, what do you mean??" lol, so mean.

With my last pregnancy I just wore a shirt that said "we're hoping it's a pony" no one really said much to me....

This time I'm a sahm and really the only places I go is to grocery store and the employees know.. But I'm also not really showing yet. When photobucket gets it's act together I'll post some new ones lol

I told one of my coworkers last night. She responded with "You know I was wondering, but I didn't want to be rude". She's so sweet.

Lol I read this post then had to go back to your bump pic in the subforum again and come back here. 8 months, seriously?! It looks like you have a neat little bump in your pics. Definitely nowhere near the size of an 8 month bump! Haha what a weirdo . I remember expecting a monstrous bump going back to look again abd thought I was thinking of the wrong person after I read this. You look slim and awesome witha cute little baby bump. I am getting either that I look ridiculously huge or that I'm small from people which is just stupid lol. Make up your minds people!
