You're so small/ Oh my gosh you're huge!

Why do people feel the need to comment on your size? I'm significantly bigger by the evening than first thing in the morning and the fact that I'm craving salt isn't helping, but every morning without fail someone makes a comment about how small I am.. yet when I go to the grocery store a little later in the day, I get comments about how I really shouldn't be trying to push the cart by myself and am I sure I don't need help out to the car...

Why can't someone just say congrats and leave it at that?

I started showing almost right away. I havent ever gotten any comments about being so small... all have been the opposite "wow, are they sure theres only one?" "wow, thats going to be a big baby" and so on. But, this is my 4th, so I dont expect to look little lol

I feel bad for my sister when we're out together, because at one point she was measuring 4 weeks ahead and I was measuring 5 weeks behind. And that doesn't even take into account the fact that I'm 4" taller and have a much longer torso.We're due one week apart, but it looks like we're two or more months apart. Everyone feels the need to comment on it. She says it doesn't bother her, but I'm sure it must, to some extent. Sad

Ugh I hate comments. I'm sorry people feel the need to tell you their opinion on your size.

In my last pregnancy, I got comments about how HUGE I was all the time. I was constantly asked things like "You must be due any day?" or my favorite was, "You sure you aren't having twins?" That one just made me crazy. YES I AM SURE!

This time I am much smaller for some reason which is fine with me, but now I constantly get told, "You are so tiny." But women say it with almost a tinge of rudeness to their voice like they are mad that I am not huge again! So you tell my I'm huge and make me feel bad and now you tell me I'm small and make me feel bad? Just don't comment on my size please! I am the way I am and I'm okay with it: Big or small!

I've lost count of the number of times someone has told me "wow, any day now, huh?" Well actually I've got until after Thanksgiving! Blum 3
I've gotten at least 3 separate comments about how she's dropped already. Not so much people - girl is friggin' transverse right now!
I know I got comments when pregnant with DS, but never this many!!! Even my father text me yesterday when he saw my latest belly photo "are you sure you have the right due date? Shouldn't the baby come when the shirts stop covering your belly?" Thanks dad, really. :roll:

Everyone shows differently. Just variations of normal. Smile

Ugh, that is awful! I really haven't gotten any rude comments thankfully but I would be very unimpressed if someone made a rude comment...

I get these exact same comments each week at least once (actually usually by the same person). I'm only 5 feet tall with a super short torso, my DH is 6'2 so yeah, the baby has no where else to go but out! At my 30 week appointment I measured 37 weeks so I am all belly.

My DS was 9lbs and 22 inches so we're expecting close to that again.

I am getting a lot of comments lately, too. Mostly about how I look ready to pop and how he's low and has dropped. While I know this is true, confirmed by my doctor that he's sitting extremely low and head down, it can be hard to hear when I have 5 weeks to go! Even our pediatrician told me on Monday how low I was carrying. This time, I am all belly (although I think it's an illusion; I have definitely gained elsewhere). I do get told I don't look pregnant from the back, and I could hear that all day long Biggrin
