That people you see once in a blue moon think they can judge how you look as a pregnant person? lol

I had my baby shower today, and a lot of people showed up that I haven't seen in years- much less during this pregnancy. The comments of "OHH you haven't dropped at all!" and "you look so small, you must be having a tiny baby!" really bugged me. Maybe it was just the hormones but Yes, I have dropped- quite a bit actually not that YOU would know since this is the first time you've seen me pregnant, and no my baby is actually the size of a small whale- thank you for the small belly compliment. lol

"You won't be going into labor at anytime soon because you're still carrying very high." You think this is 'high' lady? You should have seen how I was carrying 3 weeks ago- I feel like he's gonna fall out now.

Meh whatever, it was a fun shower but I am NOT a 'center of attention type' and I'm glad it's over so I can hide again. LOL Stop staring at my belly people! I'm pregnant not deformed!

I'm sure people think I'm rude as anything, but when people say that I say things like "Wow, who knew that being pregnant made everyone's consideration filter stop working. After I have the baby will you still be this rude or will it go back to business as usual?" I know.

Hormones + natural tendency to be brutally honest = probably not the best 9 months to be rude around me because you'll get it right back.

When I'm not pregnant, I have the ability to at least sugar coat it a little, but I just don't have the patience right now to be sweet to inconsiderate (or in some cases, just dumb) people.

With DD1, I started getting comments at 5 months. "You are going to be HUGE." And by 30 weeks, people wondered how my uterus could get any bigger. lol I feel really self conscious this time because my uterus hasn't grown in almost 6 weeks. Baby is bigger, but my belly feels tiny. I got a lot of big comments at first, now I get "you're tiny" ones. At least I know for sure that the baby is growing!

I am not all that big so I've only gotten comments about how small I am. Or people tell me I'm all belly which is soooo not true. I don't know why people feel the need to make comments besides just saying "you look great!" or something like that.

No one really says that much to me. Maybe I just have a look on my face that says "BACK OFF!" The only thing I got was when I went back to work after Christmas break, the ladies I work with said "Oh you got bigger over the break." They weren't being mean, and I just replied "Well I hope so!!" Haha.

The thing that annoyed me at my shower were the people touching my stomach. It was at the beginning of December and I wasn't really feeling him all that much yet. My sister in law sat there with her hand on my belly for a good minute before I asked her what she was waiting for. Seriously, get your hand off me.

Last night at the grocery store, the cashier told my husband that he did right by asking me to marry him. What? I said 'why? because I'm pregnant?' and he said yes. I just stood there with my mouth open and my husband said to him 'her wedding ring doesn't fit because she is pregnant and your an idiot.' Are you kidding me? Who says stuff like that?

i'm glad you had fun.
i haven't seen very many people this time, but two girls i had never met thought they'd have a little conversation while i was in earshot, about me not looking as far along as i said. i don't even know where they heard that i was 6 months, but really? you're going to say that as i'm walking past you? i really don't get offended by this type of thing, but many women do, so i can't understand why people still feel it's okay to judge us. at no other time is it acceptable to judge someone by how they look!
