"Are you pregnant"

Well today I got my first "Are you pregnant??" It was from a patient that had no idea I was pregnant. I am kind of excited that I am starting to look preggo and not just fat but I also feel HUGE! I mean this is babe #3 so I guess that is what happens!

Anyone else getting comments like this yet from people that don't know about the pregnancy??

I wish. Sadly at 15+ weeks I'm still getting that, "you're pregnant!?!?!?! You can't be very far along!" comments. Then after I tell them how far I am it's followed by, "you're still so tiny!" Yes these can be a good thing but I also find it slightly annoying because I love looking pregnant. With my other 2 I was 30+ weeks before people finally started asking if I was pregnant and when I was due and then were shocked that I was 10 weeks or less away from having a baby.

Krista- I can see why it would be quite annoying to get the "your so tiny still" because it is like they are implying your baby isn't growing as well as he/she should be. I am quite jealous of you though because I saw your pic on the Jan board and you are just so cute and tiny (in a GOOD way) I wish I didn't balloon up like I seem to. I love when near the end when I still have WEEKS to go people are like "oh you are ready to pop" um nope still have 5 weeks! People never seem to say the "right" thing no matter what! lol

Elin- Isn't it so fun getting the big belly! I love when everyone and their brother can tell and they like to ask all about the pregnancy! (although that can get quite annoying too) On a side note, I still can't believe you guys have held in your secret for so long! You family is going to be shocked when they hear you are not only preggo but almost half-way done when you tell them!

Exactly- At the end I'm very glad I don't get big but at first it's like people think I'm not healthy because baby "isn't growing" in their eyes. I'm small, 95 pounds, when not pregnant so everyone expects me to get huge, so when I don't they have actually asked me if I'm taking care of my body and baby right. People can be so rude, even if it wasn't really meant to be. I don't think you get huge! I followed your last few weeks with Lola and I remember the pic you posted in your lodge, I thought it was cute! You looked just as you should to me.

I wish I was I have a tiny little bump showing now and I feel huge and I am bigger than what I normally am in everyday life. I am a tiny frame person so I think once this baby pops out people will notice LOL I HOPE anyway Wink Hate it when people say oh really you are pregnant um where you hiding that baby? Grrrr lol
