    I have a 10 week mini-bump lol. It's not like I'm waddling around at 30 weeks, so I don't ever expect people to notice, but I was just curious to know when you guys felt comfortable asking.

    I started asking at about just over 22 weeks I had a bump by then. I'm now 31 weeks and have a decent bump and u can tell I'm preg but ppl are so rude that I still dnt get offered a seat. Wat I hav noticed tho is when I hav been offered a seat its always bin by a male.... Not one woman has bothered to stand and they look at me like I'm diseased which I find disgusting. Society sux

    You may find that people are scared of offending - you are probably at the 'not sure if that's a baby bump or a belly' stage. In which case you can't really blame people.

    I hope people do offer when you have a clear baby bump. Sucks you are having to stand in crowded transport for so long, but personally I don't think I'd feel comfortable at that stage. Actually no, I didn't. I was traveling on packed tubes in London and felt so terrible but just dealt with it :-(

    I have to miss 3 trains at peak hour to get home. I usally get pushed past when one rocks up and there wasn't even standing room when everyone piles in and im getting to that waddling stage so i had no hope of rushing.

    I now afterwork stay an hour in the city with afternoon tea at a cafe until peak hour dies down. It just not worth the stress to get home with a bunch of stress-pots and rude people.

    Mostly in off peak there's plenty of seats.

    I never asked and was rarely offered.
    I nearly fainted on the bus once and 2 b¡tches chatted away right next to me and could see my bump. One then had the hide to ask if I was O.K when it was clearly obvious I wasn't.

    That is SO true, I swear only men ever used to stand for me, I do not remember one woman ever giving me her seat. And I was often surprised at the men that did, in a nice way.
