Oh that sucks!<br>
I find any implication that I might be having twins annoying. Hello, I had an ultrasound, and there is only one.<br><br>
That is especially rude when they make it a comment on how you look. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

I got that all the time with DS! And I'm sure I'll get it this time! I'm 14 weeks and I'm showing big already! I would just say "No, but thank you!!!" if they say something to you. I'll be getting tons of comments soon! It is rude, isn't it??

I've had no twin comments yet-- just comments about all the "junk in my trunk." At least DH likes it.

I can do one better. My husband is Terry. My BIL is Jerry and he is married to an Amy also!! We girls are known as Terrys Amy and Jerrys Amy. If the four of us are together and one of the boys says Hey Amy we both answer!<br>
Its fun, but confusing some times. And whats really creapy is my SIL and i both have blonde-brown hair and glasses and like alot of the same things!<br><br>

Sorry they're being rude to you. That totally stinks.<br><br>
My friend went through the same thing. If strangers said it to her though, she'd give them a dirty look and say, "I'm not even pregnant!" The people would turn beat red, say sorry and run away. I thought it was a little mean, but a little funny too. She loves to make people squirm.

yeah, i can comisserate. Ive been hearing it since I started wearing maternity at 6 weeks.<br><br>
By 28 weeks in every pregnancy Ive had, I start getting twin comments. Because I couldnt possibly get any bigger, you know? I have a short torso, and my baby just goes straight OUT, there's nowhere else to go.
