People keep telling me I don’t look pregnant. I am 17 weeks. This is my first child. I understand that this being my first pregnancy and probably the way I’m built play key roles on why I’m not showing. But dang it I want EVERYONE to STOP TELLING ME I DON’T LOOK PG. They think they are doing me a favor because of the compliments ‘Oh but you look so good being 17 weeks’ Ok……ok….but then they go ‘I have never seen anything like you before’
What the heck??? I’m NOT a freak. My baby is growing at a normal rate. I swear it just frustrates me and kind of saddens me because I WANT TO LOOK PREGNANT. I get the same darn comments EVERY. SINGLE.DAY! Ya'll should see their faces. It's like they can't believe it. I'm tired already! Bottom line, I don’t know how else to respond to those comments. I’ll usually say ‘Well it isn’t my time to show’ Or ‘Oh don’t worry, I’m getting there’ But even women who’ve been pregnant before and should know better tell me they’ve never seen anything like me.
Makes me think they don’t believe me :(
Maybe I'm being overly sensitive :(
I didn't want to let it get to me because this isn't a big deal. It's just that......... hearing the same ol' comments from different people every day frustrates me.
