Can you believe it? I went to Burlington Coat Factory to pick up another pair of maternity pants on my lunch hour. I tried on some pants and a shirt and I was standing outside the dressing room gaping at my ever-expanding a$$ in the 3-way mirror. I guess I wasn't the only one gaping because this guy walked up to me and started commenting on the shirt and pants I was trying on. I was flabbergasted, and blurted out, "It's maternity!" That didn't seem to phase him. In fact, he looked more appreciative. It was a little boost to my plummeting body-image. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent">

That does feel good doesn't it? I got hit on at the store the other day and I am already starting to show. Plus I had my 2 1/2 year old w/ me. I am always amazed when I get hit on when I am w/ my kids, (which is all the time), I mean, what is sexy about whining kids and a flustered mom?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Although... my husband and I met a year ago and even though he didn't hit on me he thought I was sexy I guess. (Well, we are married now).<br><br>
It is nice to know you've still got it though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Now you should feel great about yourself! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
I got asked out at work when I was 7 or 8 months pregnant. Obviously pregnant, obviously wearing a wedding band on my left hand. My coworkers got a never ending kick out of that and DH was really proud of me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

When I was pregnant with DD and single, I was <i>amazed</i> by how many times I got hit on. And it only intensified when I told them I was pregnant. It was the weirdest thing ever.

No chance of *them* knocking you up, pregnancy hormones can cause libido surges (in you, I mean), you obviously have some idea what you're doing in bed.

I'm laughing my butt off because I, too, read this thread title as "Some guy hit me" - I was thinking "Oh no, maybe it;s some guy who was left by his pregnant wife or something" , I was waiting for the page to load worried that maybe you were hurt!!<br><br>
Well...you know, some women wear pregnancy very well and look super sexy! I feel tired and heavy and huge...but according to my DH, I'm smokin' hot! So...who knows, maybe he just couldn't help himself!

I admit...this would make me feel good. I'm always amazed how many men find a pregnant woman attractive. I do think it boils down a lot to what SapphireChan said lol.

Some men may be overly attracted to pregnant women who are not carrying their child <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"> Take it as a huge compliment and <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

There seems to be a whole breed of creepy guys who are attracted to pregnant women that arent "theirs". Its very bizzarre.<br><br>
When I was pg with DD and single i got hit on all the time and it really bothered me.<br><br>
I get hit on now and I just say thanks ha ha and walk away. It weirds me out. When Im pg I feel like Im "my partners" in a whole new way. It bothers me that other guys hit on me. Maybe Im the strange one though. I dont know. I am very territorial. maybe thats it.

It seems that there are a lot of guys who are attracted to pregnant women. I think it's in part because pregnant women appear "womanly". Some guys are very attracted to that.<br><br>
Who knows. Maybe it's an evolutionary thing, too. Like, these women are obviously fertile, so men are subconsciously attracted to that. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">

Was it my husband? Seriously I constantly catch him checking out pregnant women. He really likes the big belly shape. It's really cute, nothing creepy about it.

A lot of men really like pregnant women, even if they never talk about it. I am pretty sure that it is tied in to our genes, the whole fertility thing. The same with large bottoms, hips and bust, it is the sign of womanhood. Its nice when someone appreciates you, especially if its a part of you that you don't like. My DH's appreciation for my large lady butt has really helped me get over my "issues". My but has really expanded with pregnancy as well, when i was lamenting it he said he hope it doesn't go away, he likes it<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">.<br><br>
But its pretty weird that a stranger would be chatting up a pregnant lady, i guess you must just be extra glowy and beautiful.

rock on, girl!!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
I got a comment from a guy at the grocery store when I was PG with DD#2.<br><br>
I was in the produce, shopping, and some fellow walked by me. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw him look at me, and he sighed, "Beautiful!". I about fell over!!<br>
I told DH as soon as I got home .... DH says, "I tell you that all the time!" ... somehow, it's a little different coming from a total stranger when you're PG!!

I got hit on when I was very pregnant with my son. I was wearing something that let my belly peak out. He thought it was great.

Oh man, I got hit on SOOOOO much when I was pregnant with DS. It really grossed me out, but I suppose it makes sense, for all the reasons listed in this thread. Plus, it helps that there's a whole fet*sh attached to it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
