I haven't gotten rude comments. Or maybe they just didn't register as rude. People always ask when I'm due, and when I say October, a lot of times I'll say it feels like a long time, or if they say it's a long time, I just take it to be sympathy for having to do my third trimester in Iowa August. My belly feels big this time, but aside from a bit of hip spread and boob growth, that's the only place I'm carrying weight, and surprisingly, I've only put on like 12 lbs so far (not counting the 8 I lost and put back on when I was sick). Last pregnancy, I gained more and had quite a few "are you sure it's not twins" and "you look ready to pop," but mostly in fun from people I know mean nothing by it. With my first, I had random strangers telling me horror stories and the works, but now that I'm wrangling two kids, they wisely leave the stories at home. Funny enough, I'm not sure I've ever in 3 pregnancies had an unwelcome tummy rub. I was just thinking about that the other day.
