I'm 39 weeks pregnant with baby 3 and I'm so sick of that line. 'Is there really just one in there? Wink wink'. Yes it's just one, no my bump isn't measuring big. Leave me the hell alone with your insulting questions. I can no longer go within 10 meters of an older lady without hearing this crap. I can't see my GMIL (who has the added delightful habit of pointing out every weed in my garden) or go to any toddler groups anymore for all this harassment! It's been going on since about 20 weeks, I can't take it anymore!
I always get this! My bump is actually fairly small for someone of my gestation but because I am part of a set of twins I get this constantly. And "oh you never know" well at 38 weeks on of them must have been well hidden for me not to know 😫
I get this at work all the time! But it's from engineers and I think they legitimately have no idea! They seem surprised when I say no. Others keep telling me how neat and tidy my bump is so I constantly feel conflicted, hence deciding the engineers know nothing, saves my sanity a little.
I am the opposite.. expecting twins but being told constantly that "oh you look small for twins" Er well at 30 weeks I am measuring as if I was 36 weeks with one and i have put on 3 stone.. all on my belly. So I don't feel small wah!
I am four months now and because I am short, 5ft 4'', my bump does look quite big. So I am constantly being asked when I am due - which always gets a shocked look as they assume I am farther along - or asked if there is only just one in there. Its infuriating! Why do people feel it is ok for them to ask rude questions, make massive assumptions and generally talk about you as if you cannot hear them!? It is beginning to grind a little. x
Oh god yes FFS this annoys me so much and it all comes from my step-side of the family. My step-sister was very weight conscious throughout pregnancy and as she is really tall her bump looked tiny and she had a tiny 6 pound baby. So now all I get from that side of the family is "you are huge" "your only 5 months and your already same size as what she was when she was due" and "make sure youre not over eating". Oh Eff Off! I'm still a size 8 and measuring spot on average for my dates thank you!! I will bloody well eat what I want thanks! I think its because I am about 6 inches smaller than my step sister in height and I'm carrying at the front and really low so its all out in one place. Why am I even justifying my appearance anyway? As long as MW says all I fine and healthy then everyone else can shut up! X
I'm only 11 weeks but dreading this. I'm a beauty therapist so regularly talk about the same subject 15 times a day. I got sick of talking about my wedding plans and I'm already sick of telling people where I'm going on holiday. I think I'm going to hide my pregnancy as long as I can .
I have twins. I used to get the opposite "gosh are you sure there's two in there' etc etc. Something about pregnancy adn children seems to make people want to comment even if it is total utter bollocks.
People just feel they have the right to comment. They probably think they are being funny but it's just boring. You wouldn't comment on how fat/thin they are so they shouldn't really say things to you. Op if it's any consolation I was measuring 50cms at 39 weeks with dc4 I was a size 10/12 before. I used to literally stop traffic!!
I don't know what it is about pregnant women that makes people have verbal diarrhoea, several random people told me during my twin pregnancy to be extra careful because they themselves or knewsomeone who had twins and lost one Since they've arrived I've had a whole load of people ask me about IVF too
