I was walking to a coworker's office and ran into a student I haven't seen in a few weeks who knows I am expecting. Her: "Oh wow, you've gotten so big, baby is really blossoming!" I get to coworkers office who hasn't seen me for a few months who apparently didn't know I was expecting. On hearing I was due in April, her reaction was "Wow, you are really small, looks like you hardly gained anything at all!"
I just think it is funny how everyone has such different reactions to my size, lol!
Haha, I change my mind about my own bump pretty much daily. Is it huge? It is too small? It is funny though - I was having a "huge bump" day today, and then I saw an old coworker who hasn't seen me in a couple of months, and she said that for how far along I am, I'm "really small." I think it was the hoodie I was wearing. Black, slimming you know...

Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
I think it definitely is dependent on the clothes I have one. I constantly have a hoodie on and it's just NOW poking out through that (but not enough for people to think I'm pregnant, just fatter!), but today it was so nice outside I had on a maternity shirt that's like a long sleeve sweater and DH was like....wow! Julie's getting big! lol. It's so cute when he talks to her. Every night when DH goes to bed, he spends a few moments to speak to her and rub my stomach.
I'm gonna go cry now.
It's funny. People swear I'm having twins even though I'm measuring right on track (one week ahead). Mine just sticks out far from my body, but I can't convince people that I'm really not any bigger than any woman at my stage of pregnancy.
I never get any "small" comments!! I already got a couple comments at church "You're still pregnant?" and an older woman who really thought I was due before my friend who is due 4 weeks before me!
And yes, people are always saying "Not too long now!" which 9 weeks for me seems like a LONG time.
