I knew I was poking out already. But I didn't realize it was enough for strangers to make that gutsy assumption.

We have a "cheese & cider" store in our weird little town who's homemade cider I go nuts over. It's all different flavors. It's so good. The owner came over to talk to Kaden and asked could he give him a little since it's non-alcoholic. He said so good for this baby, and patted my belly and said and this one too.

After we left I had an older woman stop and say wow, you're going to have your ands full with 2 so close together.

So, kind of annoyed but glad it's noticable enough people know I'm pregnant, not just fat.

At least you are! LOL I still look like I'm in fat stage. I've been wearing the maternity pants and constantly rubbing my belly. I wish someone would notice.

Oh my gosh.. I was at the zoo yesterday and I KNOW I look pregnant, but there were so many other women there who LOOKED pregnant, but I KNOW that they weren't.. So I was all self conscious and I kept putting my hand on my belly. I think everyone just thinks I'm fat still.

Kind of funny how strangers just make those off the cuff remarks... and to think they can be so welcomed (I'm NOT fat, I'm pregnant!) or not, just depends on what's said and what we need to hear

I'm still "fat" so no preggo comments here, either!

Hat's off to Vicki for my cute siggy, thank you!

I haven't had anyone notice the belly yet. I'm 17 weeks now and do indeed have a cite little baby bump. If I wear my hoody it's hard to really see it's baby and not fat though. In my jeans and t-shirt I think I do look pregnant. I love to rub my belly or keep my hand on it too. Sometimes I just need to rub my belly though cuz I have some pains though. I can't wait for the comments to start!

I've had quite a few comments these pass few weeks. Just nice things like "when are you due" or "what are you having". It puts me over the moon when people comment because I LOVE my bump!!

I've gotten a few comments in the last couple of weeks as well and I like the fact that I look pregnant not just fat now!

I had someone ask when I was due today for the first time too and it seriously made my day to be seen as pregnant and not chubby I don't know how I'd react if a stranger just touched my belly though, probably not well Lol.
TY *Kiliki* for my awesome siggy!

My hubs made a comment this morning when I was getting dressed. He said something about, you've got a baby bump now! So I guess it's just now starting to be noticeable. Hurry hurry hurry, big bump!!

I get touched all the time and told "It's a GIRL!" or "It's a BOY!" by strangers. Wow, and I wasted all that money on intelligender...to think I could have just asked a complete stranger.

People comment all the time. Sometimes they just ask when I'm due, if I know what I'm having, etc...which is fine. This time I have NOT been asked if I'm having twins and "Am I sure?" Which is weird because I've gained more weight this time than with the other two!!! Of course, I started out skinnier...and in my pics...I look way better this time than with the others!!!!
Thanks Kiliki for the siggy!

honestly, comments i can handle but its the TOUCHING that urks me. its not a problem if i know you but strangers (to me) its like a petting zoo or something. Thats how i felt when i was pregnant with my first one. its like a hand magnet when people see prego bellies.

I think I will break someone's hand if they touch my stomach and I don't know them....I have an issue with people I don't know touching me.

There are 4 stages of pregnancy
1) Fat stage
2) Is she fat or pregnant stage?
3) She's prego stage!
4) Holy S#$& she's about to blow stage.

LOL! I am on the other end of the spectrum. I have been getting comments for over a month now! I couldn't believe how fast I popped. But the problem with that is I look a lot further along than I am so I get the "When are you due?" "OH WOW! September! You have a long way to go!!!" It gets kinda annoying!

Thank you Vicki... for my awesome siggy!
