YES, exactly slammerkin! People look at my belly, then at me, and inevitably ask when I'm due. My cousin in law told me that I look like I'm about to pop. I think they all mean well, but it gets on my nerves after a while. I just want to be like, I'm fully aware that I have a big pregnant belly, folks! Calm down. Plus, when people say stuff like that to me, it makes me feel a little bad about myself because I don't think I'm all that big! Maybe I just don't realize though, since I'm used to seeing my belly every day?

I dont like going in public anymore- people just STARE and it's annoying. The guy at the gas station counter the other day said , "Is it your first? you're radiating!" I think he meant to say radiant... but i think it was fitting because I just SWEAT constantly and am so hot- especially when I go in public- I get nervous because I feel like shit like I'm going to faint all the time, so I've stopped going out in public without my husband. codependent much? maybe, but I guess that's how it has to be til this baby gets here, and probably for a little while after. I just feel like my body is not my own anymore and it's unpredictable and uncontrollable. anyway- here are pictures. I took them yesterday at exactly 31 weeks. Only 6 to go. Yes. SIX. this baby is coming out at 37 weeks, I am over this. The second pic is a comparison- 23 weeks vs 31 weeks...... 6 months/8 months. boobs and belly and HAIR have grown a lot!

Wow you all look awesome!! Yesterday when I was coming out of the subway station some random lady was like "You know what girl, I just wanted to tell you, you look beautiful!" and then she went on her way. And it made me so darn happy! Because honestly I looked kind of messy yesterday and wasn't feeling too good. And it seems like so many comments are "when are you due?" "are you having twins?" "you look so big!" "you look so small!" etc. I loved this random lady for just telling me I looked great!

Superbeans, that's awesome! What a sweet lady! I don't know why people think it's appropriate to comment on a pregnant woman's size. If you wouldn't say it to a non-pregnant woman, chances are you shouldn't say it to a pregnant one! I also find it weird when people that I know ask me if I've gotten any stretch marks. It's like asking someone if they have cellulite- who really cares, and what business is it of yours?

This totally! I don't make a habit of commenting on people's physical appearance, period. Unless it's to say they look nice, or I like some bit of their outfit. You just don't comment on someone's body, people! Why does being pregnant open my body up to the scrutiny and free commenting of the world? Ick!

Slammerkin, exactly!! I wouldn't just walk up to a person and make any kind of comment about their body, unless it was what you said- to say I like their shirt or earrings or something, or just to say they look nice! People can be so rude. Thank goodness for the sweet ones who just stop to say that you look good! I don't like it when people say I look ready to pop, either. All I can think of is how much longer I have before I "pop", and worry that they think I'm "too big" for how far along I am! 

 

Dalia, hahaha I love your pic this week- the chicken suit is so funny, and you look great!

 note that this, like all but one of my maternity shirts, can barely contain my belly anymore.

You look awesome, Abk! Sorry to hear you got stretch marks though, what a pain! You're so close to the finish line!

 

Mainemama, you look fantastic! You always look so happy in your pics :)

Thank you. I looked better until I spent the whole day crying. I am getting so close and it freaks me out sometimes. I wonder who will be the first to have a baby around here! I'm hoping it's me! Lol
post #377 of 523

haha, I'm rooting for you abk! I think you're the closest!

post #378 of 523
I think serafina is closer than me. But, we all know dates mean very little when it comes to baby dates! Lol
post #379 of 523

Ohh you may be right! But that's true, babies don't care about calendars lol!
