Let's talk about how tactical men are about making comments about our changing bodies, shall we?

Last night, I'm getting ready to leave to grab twin size sheets for the new bunk bed we got for our DS and DD. I'm slipping my leg into my pants and stub my toe, to which I say "OW!" Then DH turns to me and says(I can't remember EXACTLY what he said, but this is about the jist of it) "did your pants hurt you? Are you too big to fit in them now?" Umm.....WHAT? lol I finished putting my pants on and just looked at him like seriously? You just said that. And he stood there, like a fish out of water, trying to backpedal and make me feel better about what he'd just said. Gah! Why don't men just shut up if they're gonna say stuff like that?

 

Any other tactless males out there? I need a pick me up, cuz my legs are obviously swelling past what my pants can hold.

DDCC.  not to laugh at your plight but thats a funny one!  are your pants hurting you!  you should lie in bed in a few days with your pants half on and play like you are severely injured and when he walks in or askas whats wrong be like "gasp call an ambulance i cant get up my pants are killing me" or something to that extent.  i find the best retalitation is in being as s aracastically playful as i can manage without cracking a smile :)

About 3 days after I had my DD my father stopped by to see the new baby.  One of the first things he said was point to my belly and say, "are you sure you don't have another one in there"?  My step mom about stepped on his toe.  My dad, he's a great guy, but he seriously didn't think!

Every once in a while, dp looks at me and says, "Wow... your ass is getting really big!" Apparently, this is supposed to be a compliment. For some reason, I don't take it as such. Go figure.

He always just goes, "Shutup. You know what I mean!" He's very, very good at watching what he says to not offend me because he knows how sensitive I am right now.

My husband and I are always joking about my "beer belly" or how I "must have eaten too much" which is fine, but I can't stand when he looks at me and just says, "That's a BIG boy!".  Umm...yeah...especially when I am changing clothes or when I climb into bed (I've been sleeping in a "night" bra and panties)....I'm still ME in here and I want to feel beautiful not giant...

 

I don't feel that I'm being all that sensitive, but I am a little bit done with the gasps and gawks when I walk into a room and how that is the first thing every single person notices and comments on.  Don't get me wrong, it's kind of fun, too, because I know I won't be pregnant forever, and not likely again--and at least I'm not getting the "Wait, you're pregnant?!" remarks....but still, it's difficult feeling like you fade into the woodwork.

My husband jokes a lot too, but I know he's just being silly.  I think it's good to keep in mind that a lot of men can't help but find their pregnant ladies SO attractive- What's not to love?  They sowed their seed and that makes them feel like men.  I had a boss during my last pregnancy who said "I can see why I ended up having 6 kids"  I asked what he meant and he said pregnant women just have this aura about them that is very attractive.  Now, it was a little weird that he was talking about me, but I know from talking with my husband that he thinks I look amazing and that he is still very much attracted... even though I feel like a blimp.

I guess I'm lucky. DH just mentions how sexy I look pregnant. I think part of it is that now is when I *FEEL* the best about how I look- when I'm big, round, and pregnant. He has told me I'm much bigger this pregnancy compared to the others. And he's right! Even though each pregnancy has started around roughly the same weight, I look now at 27 weeks how I looked in my 33 week picture with DD3 (who is 17 months right now). Yet another reason I'm hoping that my body remembers it tends to cook baby's fast and sticks with that pattern. If I wind up with a 42 week pregnancy, I will have to be rolled everywhere!

Yesterday I was apparently taking a bit too long to get ready to leave house so dh says to the kids, "We need to wait for Chubs."  Nice.  I laugh that stuff off mostly, but what really gets me is the supposed teasing about how hard it is for me to do things now that I'm getting bigger.  For example, bending down to pick food off the floor that has been thrown there by the kids.  Or doing the dishes b/c my belly gets in the way of the counter and ends up soaking wet.  Or walking around the farmer's market and then the grocery store (I get nauseated still if I walk too long).  Or walking up our long flight of stairs to go change ds' diaper.  Or, possibly the worst, not wanting to take the kids on certain outings by myself b/c they are simply too taxing.  Running after ds is exhausting and carrying/wearing him is worse.  So I'm sorry if I don't feel like going to the DMV without back up.  Ugh.

 

This is a little different, but along similar lines... dh would much rather grab my boobs than put his hands on my belly and feel the baby kicking.  I basically have to force him to feel the baby.  I guess it's old hat by the third time around?  But seriously, back rub?  Foot rub?   Yes!   Boob grab?  No thanks.  I wondered at first if he though it was making me feel sexy, but honestly I think he just wants to grab my larger, pregnant breasts.  My body is aching and sore.  It would love some attention.  Not sexual- just nice pampering attention.  Is that so much to ask?

This is also a case of male idiocrisy. lol Does he make a honking noise when he grabs them? DH did that the other day and I gave him a funny look and he was like "what? They're bigger, it's like they're begging for attention." haha

Luckily my DH is pretty respectful in this area, but he certainly isn't as interested in feeling the baby this time around.  It's not that he won't, he just doesn't do it on his own.

Today at the grocery store a male employee asked me if I was due really soon.  I said, "no, not for another 3 months" and he replied with, "oh, you must be deceptively large then".   Uh, how does one even respond to that statement?  I just stared at him with a puzzled face and walked away.

"And you just made yourself look like a socially awkward ass." That's what I would have said.

Joanie, you're lucky, about how sensitive yours have been. Ever since I started leaking, they have lost alot of feeling. I don't like my boobs being above a C cup, because I would like to for ONCE buy a cute matching set of undies with a bra. They almost NEVER come in anything bigger than a C cup. irked.gif

Should my boobs be leaking already at 30 weeks? I haven't had anything come out of them at all so far... Does that kind of thing just vary from person to person?

This is my third pregnancy, and I've never leaked while pregnant. (Those first few months, though - holy moly!) I can hand express a tiny bit of colostrum right now, but I think that is only because I am still nursing a toddler. I could never even get that much the other two times. It really just varies from woman to woman, and is no indication of whether you will have supply issues once baby is born!

It varies with every person and every pregnancy. With my first, I didn't start leaking until 35 weeks. With my 2nd, I didn't leak until 25 weeks. This time, I started leaking at 24 weeks.

I don't "leak" necessarily, but I can see dried colostrum on the nipple as well as in my bras.

Yup, I don't leak during pregnancy either.  I'm also still nursing (once a day) and can hardly express one drop of clear fluid.  Once my milk come in though I produce enough to feed 2 or 3 babies!

Yeah, I don't mind the extra attention too much, although I am very self conscious about my breasts.  I was a C before my first and I've been a G or bigger ever since (continuously nursing or pregnant).  I feel so floppy  and huge and UGH.  I can't even buy bras at a regular store because I'm a 32 band, and I either wear shirts out across the breasts, (seriously, the fabric deteriorates) or I look like I'm wearing a sack.

 

Dh isn't into the baby kicking, never was with any of them, so I just grab his hand to feel her kicking when she's active and pretend excitement for both of us.

I'm probably in the minority here, but I'd love for my husband to be randomly grabbing my boobs more. LOL. I'm loving my pregnant boobs so much, I feel sexier than ever in that regard! And sorry if this is TMI, but they're more sensitive than ever in a good way during intimacy. I want them to stay bigger forever! I was just a small B before on a rather large frame and now I'm enjoying a C. joy.gif LOVE IT~ lol

 

My hubby doesn't really try to feel the baby move either unless he happens to be sitting next to me while I start to try feeling her move, then he sometimes gets the idea in his head and puts his hand there. But otherwise it's never anything he seeks out. If she's kicking a lot then I'll grab his hand and make him feel, LOL. He is too impatient to wait in between kicks so I try to give him a heads up during times she's really active.

 

I was an A or small B before my first two. I was a C going into this pregnancy and I was happy with that. Now I'm a D and growing fast. I have decided that anything over a C is not for me! I actually get marks on my shoulders and around my chest from my bras. Plus, boob sweat. What is up with that? How did I not know that when they get bigger, there is sweating?! I freakin hate it!  Ahh!!! 

 

Also, I just realized that stores don't sell bigger than a D cup. What's up with that? Okay, so I suppose this is an example of smaller boobed privilege that I've gone so long without noticing this, but still. I guess for my next bra (which I'll probably need in a few weeks) I just have to order online and hope it fits.

 

 

Oh, and more on topic, dp loves my boobs. So at least that's a perk!
