...a man passing me in the street has referred to me as a 'killer whale'

I'm 44, 32 weeks pregnant and dressed in black in the only clothes which fucking fit now and congratulating myself for having walked into town and back without needing to sleep----

Anyway, the correct term is orca, not killer whale hmm

grin I shouldn't laugh but what a spectacular example of a total wanker he is!! Fwiw I resemble an orca - I'm sure you look like a perfectly lovely 32 week pregnant woman.

Fucking cheek.

I'm 24 weeks with twins and not much fits me either. Pretty sure I look like an orca too wink

What a twat angry. If it's any consolation I feel like I ate a spacehopper!

I will be charitable and say it appeared he was displaying disinhibited behaviour to all and sundry as I could hear him shouting to someone else as I was approaching. Then I braced myself and avoided eye contact as I passed and out he came with the whale comment!

But it would have been nice if he could have shouted out 'goddess' or something similar.

Anyway, I got home without eating my weight in cakes or weeing myself, so that's a bonus!

As far as whale type insults go, Killer Whale is a pretty good one! Mighty and majestic, pretty beautiful too. I'd have been half chuffed if he didn't seem like such an arsehole. I'm 37+5 today and managed to walk around town too (also wearing black and white!), high five to all us land dwelling whales!

I'd have eaten the cakes. And cried. But it doesn't take much at the minute! Love the space hopper analogy space!

My own children called me a weeble when I was pregnant with their little brother. shock

My revenge has been subtle over the last 9 years wink

What an horrid man angry

You are pregnant growing a baby what do people like him find so difficult to understand about that.

It's not nice when nothing fits any more on my last pregnancy we were invited to a formal work do at my husband work place, I remember sitting on the bed for half hour in tears that afternoon but my lovely husband to the rescue brought me a wonderful maternity dress to wear and it was lush.

i would have corrected him and added they can kill humans too and smiled grin

i should also add i was a vicious bitch when i was pregnant just ask the woman who tried to sell me gas and electric blush except ive never seen her since she was in my town quite often before i was pregnant with ds 1

I think killer whales are pretty beautiful. Also I think what your body is doing right now is beautiful too! I would also have eaten all the cakes too 😂 to congratulate myself on not seriously injuring the idiot!
Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy beautiful lady flowers

I got told my bump made me look like Mr Greedy. Ironically I'd had hyperemesis for the entire pregnancy.

Fuzz01 Sun 13-Mar-16 10:07:46

I haven't been out in ages i'm huge all baby bump 5,1 and struggling to walk and had some random stranger say if i get any bigger il pop. So rude. I get starred at in the supermarket its as if they never seen a pregnant woman before.

I'm 32 weeks and feeling huge too, DH keeps on suggesting I watch out for Japanese whaling fleets, my come back is I can always measure his stomach and see how pregnant he is I'm guessing we'd be close!

I'm sure you make a lovely Orca winkthanks(cakechocolate)

When I was in late pregnancy with DC1 DH used to follow me around making tuba noises, like this. He even did it when we went into hospital when I was in labour. The midwife's face, until I started laughing, was a picture! grin
