    Default Getting told you dont look pregnant? :-(

    Sooooo... im getting a little over being told i dont look pregnant and "look at your tiny bump"... Its bloody massive!!! Im wearing maternity jeans, non of my clothes fit me and i feel like an easter egg. Its really upsetting me. I must always look really fat with a big belly :-( Im 19Wks 4 Days and just can't believe it..

    Yes i had that constantly. Someone even told me theyd be worried if it was them.

    My baby was born small just on 6 pounds at 39 weeks but healthy and happy.
    Try not to let it bother you but i totally understand it hurts.... Xoxox

    I have always been small, even with twins. To the point where when I booked in to have the twins, the maternity nurse said "there seems to be a mistake, it says here you are having twins"?. Haha. It is a tad annoying, but I got over it quick enough.

    I was a big girl before I got pregnant, I was and still am 90 kilos, and 167cms tall, so I had some chub already. I agree, I can feel it, and I can see myself rounding out, and no one else thinks I look pregnant yet unless I'm laying down but I just keep thinking it won't be long before I'm the size of a house, ad then there will be no second guessing, it'll come when it comes, and if its your first time like me, we will take a while to show anyway. I'm 18+3 with a boy

    don't worry, even if you are small, you will definately look pregnant.. I wouldn't worry about what ppl say, as long as bubby is healthy!

    I'm finding this too OP. I was healthy weight (61kg) before falling pregnant, I have now gained 6kg, cannot wear anything I used to, and still get told I don't even look slightly pregnant, or that I am so skinny?!?!

    People say a lot of stupid, annoying **** when you're pregnant. Its quite astonishing. Don't let it worry you, and if you're having a really bad day then feel free to tell them to **** off

    I would be that annoying person saying "oh look at your cute bump" as in my mind I was huge (people thought I was starting maternity leave and it cant be long now.... when I was only 5 months pregnant) but you are the one noticing the details as you know how your clothes fit. When pregnant, people will say most annoying things and everyone is different - I used to give them the death stare.

    But what size you look doesnt mean size of baby. My friend didnt look that big, but her boy was over 9pd (naturally) even the ob was a bit suprised.

    Was just coming back to suggest this also. They might mean it as a compliment, not that they think you've always looked pregnant.

    I was a healthy size 12 even 11 in my jeans when I fell pregnant.. That's why it's upsetting. Even my friend at work can't believe people are saying it cause she reckons I'm obviously pregnant.
