FREAKIN tells me "I need to eat" or "Your sooooooooo small" I am going to lose my mind, I try to hold my tongue but my patience is running low. I was baby shopping at Carters and the lady said "ow my your starting early" EARLY I am halfway through this freaking pregnancy lady and the other said "girl you need to eat" I should have said you need to stop eating but for some reason if a small person says something like that to a full size person it's a problem but vice versa is ok <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

I never had that problem. Instead people said "Woah you're gonna pop!" or, my favourite, "You're HUUUUGE!"

Some comments people should just keep to themselves <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nod.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nod">

Saying "you need to eat" to a small frame person is no less insulting than saying "you need to watch what you eat" or the like to a large person. I think the second one just happens more often.<br><br>
Tell people to mind their own darn business.<br><br>

Argh! That must be aggravating. Nobody has told me to eat (or even given me enough TIME to shovel crap into my face, much less make food that isn't crap) but I do get a lot of comments about how small/big I am. Since I'm 42, I've had quite a few people think I'm not really pregnant.<br><br>
I was really stressing over my parents freaking out and calling CPS on me, but when my son let it slip to my father, he just accused me of photoshopping my MySpace pic to get attention.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br><br>
FWIW, I got the bulk of my shopping done before 12 weeks when nobody but my dd and the cashier at the consignment store knew I was pg. No regrets, even though I've changed my mind about some of the clothes, but that gives me the opportunity to pass them along to other mamas who need them more than I do and throw some good things out into the universe.<br><br>
I'm small too with this pregnancy, but my baby is big and healthy and strong and I FINALLY started gaining weight and getting enough belly that it's kind of hard to hide it now that I'm almost 30 weeks. People come in different sizes and shapes and it's about time the world got over it!

My theory on comments is - sure, you can make 'em, but I get to choose how I let them affect me. I define my own reality - not someone else. Hang in there, and try to let them fly right by you.
