Belly comments

Share your weird/irritating/funny comments you have gotten on your belly:

Mine: I was a week PP with my DD1 and at the grocery store. The teenager helping me out with my groceries says "Wow, she's pretty young to be starting on another." I just kinda looked at him with a strange expression and then said "she's only a week old." He got a little red and QUICKLY finished the groceries. I mean of course my belly hadn't shrunk yet, but so nice of you to notice! :rolleyes:

I have had customers say to me this time - "You look like you're having twins!" I look at them and say, "Well, actually I am!" Haha, the deer caught in headlights look is funny!!!! Smile

I haven't really had any funny comments but on Saturday I was feeling especially huge and when the guy at the paint store asked me when I was due I told him "next month".

Erica, I would love to see the look on some of thoses faces!

My favorite lately:

Stranger "You look like you must be about ready to go"

Me "Not really, 2 more months"

Stranger (stands there with odd looking face for a second) PAUSE "is it a girl or a boy"

Me "Both"

Stranger (relieved look on face with awkward smile) PAUSE "Congratulations, Twins huh"

I don't really get anything funny either. Other than, when are you gonna have that baby? And when I tell them they say "oh wow, you're gonna be huge." Yep, thanks for that.

I guess one thing that was funny was, we walked into the dollar store looking for one specific item. Lady says, can I help you? We tell her what we are looknig for, she helps us find it, we go to pay. She goes, "oh I didn't know you were pregnant". Um okay. ??? Not sure what being pregnant has to do with looking for a bandana. lol

The only thing that comes to mind is last week I was painting baby's room and had a regular t-shirt on so it made my belly more pronounced I guess. Anyway a lady that I go to church with came over and the first thing she said was "Whoa you're like seriously pregnant." Well, duh. I don't know if it is because she usually sees me a church in a dress or what but she was definitely shocked to see that I looked as pregnant as I did. Hello, I am 2 months away from delivering you would think I would be showing by now!!

Today I got "that is a big baby!". I think it was his nice way of saying I am huge.

I can't think of anything funny but I am always amazed by the variety of comments. In one day, I can hear, "wow, you're huge! Are you sure there's only one in there?" and, "You don't look that big at all." Everyone has an opinion and is not shy about sharing it.

I haven't gotten any comments with this baby but I did with DS. He was my first, I have a really long torso and had really good abs at the time (not an issue anymore Smile ), plus he was breech and very small - 4 lb 8 oz. So only one person ever asked when I was due and that was at about 34 weeks, I was so excited! Most of the time I'd tell people my due date and got, "Are you sure?" (because you know I could be confused about being pregnant), Where are you hiding it? " It was so aggravating. I went for monitoring at 36 weeks and the nurse didn't even believe me at first!

This pg every time my mom sees me she says how much the baby is growing which obviously means she thinks I'm getting huge!

I've gotten only positive comments, that I remember. Except for last Saturday (Jason and I got married) Smile ...we invited one friend and his girlfriend. She said to me, "You don't even look pregnant in that dress!" I think she was trying to be nice, but I picked that dress specifically because I thought it made me look less fat, more pregnant then other styles. So, I spent the rest of the day thinking I must look so fat...
