    Default Annoying Parents picking on my weight

    I talk on FaceTime with my annoying parents. Don't get me wrong they r great to talk to but at some point they always ruin it by pointing out how "fat" I'm getting. I'm 25 weeks and like my mother I retain a huge amount of water when pregnant and I feel huge but my doctor is fine with how I'm going.

    I just want to tell them to p#ss off. They think they r being funny. Anyone else got annoying parents who don't know when it just isn't funny.

    Its not really that nice when you constantly feel like you weigh a tonne

    I remember when I was about 16 weeks pregnant we saw an approx 8 months pregnant lady and hubby said "she's bigger the you.". I cried because I wanted a big fat belly!

    I had a work colleague tell me my stomach was getting huge then proceeded to rub my belly so I replied with 'so is your **** but I'm not about to rub that'. I think she got the point. It's hard with parents though. Maybe just be straight up with them or reply with 'my Dr has said that I am right on track for a healthy baby, that's my priority right now'. Xx

    Oh yeah my family was constantly at me about weight gain and kept comparing me to themselves from the era where you were weighed and advised not to eat if you'd gained more than recommended.

    At my baby shower my grandad was asking whether I should be eating the cake.

    A guy at work told me I didn't need lunch then exclaimed 'look at you!' ( it was my ML goodbye lunch). He also loudly commented I was ginormous and took up the whole doorway.

    I was in Medium/size 12 maternity clothes. People are *****.
