I'm 24 weeks with my first and I have to say I have had a terrible time commuting. Two times I have had people push ahead of me to snatch a priority seat then sit there staring at my belly. It's ok now in the cooler weather but while it was hot my varicose veins were actually giving me a hard time and when it's cramped I hate people cramming in on my belly. The other day a boy heading towards a high school next to the train station bumped into me with his bicycle and just kept going. I was so upset I called the school and complained to the principal who was really apologetic.
anyway, today for the first time, while people on priority seats ignored me, a lady offered up her seat. It made me well up. Just that little bit of kindness.
what were your experiences using public transport when pregnant?
Does it get to you when people are rude?
