My feelings are hurt:(

I always get mad and my feelings get hurt when ppl say I'm small.. Like I feel like it's my fault or something? Does anybody else have this problem?

I wouldnt say that I get my feelings hurt, but Im starting to get sick of people telling me everyday "you havent had that baby yet??" "Youve been pregnant forever!"

Some people say Im huge, other people tell me im tiny, everyones got an opinion lol. I am actually tired of talking about the pregnancy period, and since I go to pick my kids up every day from school, all the other moms and dads always have to say something. Oh and every time I talk to my mom and grandma (I talk to them everyday) The first thing they say is "Is it time??"

Im small too & i hear it all day long! Honestly its a compliment. It means you aren't so fat that they question if you're having twins.. the smaller you carry the less strain it will put on your skin& muscles, reducing the amount of stretch marks you get & allowing your body to bounce back quicker. Not saying that you should try to stay small just grow gradually & definitely take it as a compliment if someone says you're small for your gestation.

I'm small figured, but my belly is huge, people joke if I'm having twins and there is nothing wrong with that. I love the fact that I'm just starting my 6th month and there us no doubt I'm pregnant. So either way you go be happy and proud your pregnant, everyone is different. And if your worried always ask your doctor or midwife.

I'm just over five months along now. And all I get are the fat jokes. I was always naturally slim and now all day at work I gte "we need to widen the door frames" etc. And "fatty fat fat" I'm sorry for what you are going through. Just try your best to ignore them. Or maybe just say you've had enough and you don't appreciate hearing it. Just stand up for yourself! Goodluck

Oh honey, truly, it's a compliment, so don't feel bad about it!!  I had my third baby at the end of June & I carried small with all three of my pregnancies.  People who were just acquaintances were all surprised to see me with my babies as they never even realised I was pregnant.  I've always been slim & never had weight issues, also my babies were on the smaller end of average with my son being 6lb 8oz & daughters 6lb 2oz & 6lb 9oz.  I really wouldn't let this worry you.  Being small meant for me having more energy & no problems such as swollen ankles or back ache.  At nine months I looked around four months & the nurses would always mention how small my tummy was, but they never meant offence & I never took any.  Nobody can help how they carry, but I always felt a bit smug how neatly I carried.  All that matters is your baby is happy & healthy!!  And everybody has an opinion when you're pregnant & also once you've given birth, it never ends.  People are now asking me if I will try for a fourth baby!!!!!  Plus everyone comments "I can't believe you've just had a baby"!

All the best for you!!  Be a proud pregnant mama to be!!!  xox

I get tired of hearing ppl say wow you about to bust girl! Or you haven't dropped the load yet? And that's been happening since 7mths! I still have a full month to go! I just feel huge and ugly :(
But on the other hand I have never attracted this much male attention even being 8mths now it's like all these guys are hitting on me constantly, but I'm huge!!!! Idk what it is lol...

I had a woman ask me if I was starving myself cuz I was so small. My son was weighing at 5 pounds at 30 weeks so I think he's doing just fine!

My sister in laws boyfriend always tells me you don't even look pregnant. It's so annoying but people will say what they want to say ya know. It's like when you are pregnant people no longer have a filter and they just tell you whatever they want.

I know this is awful but I had someone explain why pregnant women get hit on so much, it could be because you are already pregnant so they can't get you pregnant. If you cheated on the baby daddy he couldn't find out because you are already pregnant. I know it's sick and wrong but some men think this way.
