She asked me how far along I was and I told her 6 months. She looked at my belly, looked at her daughter, and said to us both (imagine the tone here...), "Oh, I was never that big with either of my babies, even on the day I delivered."
But you know, I gained over 40 pounds with dd.. and I love telling people that - it shocks them and gives me a laugh. I watched my diet really well - healthiest 9 months of my life, exercised, etc. dd was 7 lbs 1 oz. and I'm a pretty small person - 5.4-.5 and about 120-5 pounds right now
I think big pregnant women are beautiful!! If I saw you at that time, I'd probably say something along the lines of "you look so gorgeous, I remember when I was pregnant with dd" with a wistful look on my face
sorry, OT.. I just hate it when people (and especially women) make hurtful comments towards mamas and mamas-to-be
