Why is it that ppl find the need to point out changes in ur pregnant body. I mean is it really appropriate? As a woman we know our bodies are changing and have to change. Comment on my growing belly. That don't bug me. But am I wrong to be offended when someone pokes me in the thigh and comments on them or when the mother in law tells me my butt is getting bigger? Btw Im 9w2d and only 116 pounds. Do the comments really start that early now. I mean can't they wait till I've actually got a pregnant body at least. :(
Don't feel bad :-p I'm 30 weeks and a couple weeks ago I got chastised because I "didn't have a double chin". What.... Just because I'm pregnant I'm supposed to eat myself silly? Then the same person said I must not be eating enough and I needed to gain some weight. Lol um. first of all I technically started out "overweight" at 202 lbs. Although they don't account for muscle mass which bugs me because I bench press around 115, squat 250, and overall have a LOT of muscle. But I'm not like body builder body. I do have cushion lol.
I was told to not gain to much. And guess what. I now weigh 200. So what does she want me to weigh?? Wth.right?
I feel ya girl im 21wks and my belly has grown alot now but ive gained about 14lbs and it kills me when someone says something like "u about ready to have that baby" its like actually im a little over halfway! Some people just disrespect
Grrr. I know eh. Everyone always has something to say about ur body. Its so frustrating tho. Men "almost" know better. But women just comment. What women wouldn't get offended if u told them their butt was bigger? Lol. Let alone a pregnant one. I gain weight while Im pregnant. I have to cause Im about 30 pounds underweight. So I know I need it. But to point it out? Id think a woman would understand how those little comments made a girl feel sometimes. Can't they admire my changing body to themselves? Lol
Was told today...by a female friend by the way...that I'm starting to look like humpty dumpty lol. I'd be offended, except for it's so ridiculous. Everybody does have a comment. Only 29 weeks, wonder what they're going to say when I'm 38 weeks. And I'm short but mostly belly, you actually can't see it in my face at all but I do notice it in my arms and thighs.
