How do you ladies react when someone looks at you after you tell them you're pregnant..and they don't believe that you are....and think that you're just overweight??? I haven't had this situation yet but I have my response....I let you know after I hear your thoughts......what would you say? how would you feel?

I haven't had anyone say to me that I'm not pregnant, but I definately feel like I just look fatter, and not pregnant. People that know I am pregnant, say I look pregnant, but I never believe them! Haha.

When I wear maternity shirts, you can tell I am pregnant, but I still wear some regular shirts as well and with those you can't tell so much.

I've had people ask me before when I was due... when I wasn't pregnant. It's embarrassing for both people, but moreso for me.

You're right - they immediately look at your belly to see if you are showing or telling the truth or whatever. but then they are like "oh, how far along are you?" Know how you feel sister.

This happened after I gave birth:

We were at the grocery store 1 week after I had a VERY difficult labor, then c-section. My DH was in the check-out line & I went to sit down b/c I was really light-headed. An older lady sat down next to me & asked if I was alright. I told her I had just given birth & wasn't feeling good. She said "really, I was going to ask you when you were due." I just looked at her and said "thank you" and went to join my DH so I didn't have to deal with her. She looked pretty embarrassed though.

So I just basically let her see her snide little remark didn't affect me & she was speechless.
Thank you KimberlyD0 for my absolutely beautiful siggy!

Funny I just had that happen to me yesterday by one of DH's friends moms. We ran into them at the mall and she said " You're pregnant?"

its rediculously more than obvious that im 9 months pregnant. i couldnt think of anything sarcastic to say as a come back. so me and DH just kinda looked at each other. but she's always been a little rude to DH.

the only person who always seems to have something to say is my MIL. "big SHOCKER!" lol. when i was in my second trimester, she always had comments like "when you wear that t shirt you cant tell you're pregnant it just looks like you gained weight"
