You all remember my disappointment of gaining like 13lbs at my last appointment and having no idea where it went right? Well my pants still fit, my bras still fit and all that jazz and i've been following a strict low sodium/low fat diet for the last 3 weeks. I was feeling pretty proud of myself yanno and lots of people say they can't even tell I am pregnant. Usually I don't really show until I am like 5 months anyways but I don't really feel like I am showing either.

Anyways, the rude part, a neighbour is outside today with a bunch of other people, there was like 10 of them. She comes up to me and starts blabbing on while this other neighbour runs to her house to grab me a maternity top she had saved from her pregnancy last year and wanted me to have it. I can't remember how it was brought up but it was something about me showing or not and I said I'm not really showing all that much. The neighbour says yes you are, I was like nu-huh and she was like yeah like lots, you are and then she tried to pull my top up! Then she tried to grab my stomach! Then she told me that I was getting fat and would get fatter. She did this infront of everyone mind you.

I was just like crushed that she said that, so crushed infact I smacked her and told her that even if I am, I am NOT fat I am pregnant! Then she laughed and walked off to light a smoke.

The other girl came back with the top and almost immediately commented on how tiny I am for 4 months and she wished she had been that small at 4 months. I guess she made me feel a little better.

I told DH about it and he was like I would have said "You are looking uglier lately" and see how she took that, he stands firm he hasn't noticed any huge difference in me either.

I know that when you are pregnant you get bigger but I know that at this point I am NOT, if I was then I would not be able to fit into my clothing yanno? I was looking at myself in the mirror earlier and felt ok, I thought I looked good today then she goes and says that to me? It was just depressing because I am VERY self conscious about my weight to begin with.

Um she had no right to try to pull your shirt up or try to grab your stomach. I think I would have been in total shock! What's wrong with some people!?

I think I totally look 6 months pregnant...people who know me all say I look skinny but my stomach is growing BIG.

Now we're new in the neighborhood and when I say "and I'm expecting another in September" people say surprisedly "Oh REALLY???" I must just look fat to them, they think shamu is their new neighbor.

That woman will be eating her words next year when you are a hot skinny mom carting the baby around =) And she'll still be ugly.
Thanks Kiliki for the siggy!

Gawd, I'm glad all my neighbors are 60+, that would totally hurt but I think I'd punch her (or pull my gun) when she put her hands on me. And for the record, some people only feel good when they hurt someone else. Since you already smacked her, just let it roll off. She's miserable, and don't let her have and control over your emotions! We love ya here, bump them!

Wow she sounds like a piece of work. As is the case with most insults, it probably comes from jealousy.. I bet you look adorable and she hates it. Just let it roll off your back.

Hurt people hurt others....and for some reason she is HURTING.
She had no right to even touch you, let alone comment about getting fatter. What a poor pitiful woman.
Thank you Alethia for my awesome siggy!

Are you kidding me? What the $%^& ? Stupid people say stupid things, just remember that. She can't work her IQ back into shape, so you've got LOTS up on her.

This is why all my neighbors walk on 4 legs and have fur... they don't say anything rude, they just look at you and move on, chewing the leaves off of plants, or planning their next attack on another "neighbor" for dinner

Wow, the general public never ceases to amaze me seriously... What is WRONG with people??? I am sure it is simply out of jealousy and I bet you look adorable and she just had to get a dig in.

Thank you GraysMama for another amazing siggy!

Sooooo rude! Some people just love to spread their misery around don't they? I think the majority of the people that witnessed this agree with your assessment about how much you are showing and probably think that other neighbor is smoking something other than cigarettes if you know what I mean.

I would have been so angry too! The nerve of some people!! With my last pregnancy people in public made me feel like crap because if people asked about my belly and how far along I was... I'd get the "NO WAY! You're way too small to be 8 months pregnant... you need to eat more" So I get you on being on the small side for pregnancy. But that lady is crazy... I can't believe she actually lifted up your shirt! (I'm kind of glad you smacked her lol)

Thank you *Kiliki* for my siggy!

She tried to do it again yesterday, you know saying how I am looking SO pregnant and look FATTER. Another neighbour was right there as well as a friend and asked to see my tummy so I pulled up my sweater, she looked at the crazy one and said um no she's not, her tummy looks flat still and the crazy lady kept going saying crap like yes she is, she's fatter with a huge grin on her face. The other neighbour just shook her head and said you really aren't and my friend was sitting there in complete agreement. I think the crazy one just knows it makes me feel bad and she thinks it's funny, I just she likes to make others feel bad about themselves espesh when she knows they are sensitive to begin with about their weight.

What a C***!! Seriously, she has issues and to make herself feel better she is putting other people down. Next time she says you are getting fatter. Inform her you are pregnant and even after the baby. You can fix fat, you cannot fix stupidity.
