    Haha, if anyone wanted to do my house chores for me while I was pg, I'd have disappeared to the couch before they'd finished their sentence!

    I found I got no special consideration when I came to the general public - particularly in the shops, like no-one would move aside for you or get their kids out of the way so you could waddle past.

    Haha, I took every offer of help while pregnant, got out of HEAPS of work . I think people mean well, so if it made them feel warm fuzzies for helping I was happy to let them.

    I was frustrated at the start but the bigger I got the more I enjoyed the special attention!

    I was actually pleasantly surprised when I noticed bus drivers waiting for me to take a seat before they took off from the bus stop! Thank you Brisbane City Council Buses

    I got offered a seat on the bus the other day, that was nice. My family is terrible for it. I cant carry anything at all - my DF on the other hand, well he wanted me on the roof to help him install the new antenna when i was 12w. I promptly put him in his place Now that im 20w he won't even let me lift the grocery bags out of the car!

    I used to have the same attitude, that pregnancy doesn't = disabled. But then I got SPD and now find walking normally and the smallest things painful. All of a sudden, I can understand why pregnancy can be debilitating for some women, and well-meaning people think you might need help.

    I wish I could do half the stuff you can!

    My sister used to say this all the time when she was pregnant. She also used to get annoyed with random people touching her belly!

    I am 34 weeks pregnant and so far have not experienced either of these things. I am still expected to do all the things I did before, and not once has a random touched my belly. Most of the people I know don't even touch my belly!
