Nine months can seem like a lifetime when you're pregnant. LilSugar reader Beaner has been bringing our readers along her journey and shared her latest thoughts about pregnancy in The Pregnancy Posse group.
I was so excited to get pregnant, obviously to be a mother and to expand the already amazing family my husband and I have created, but I was also excited to sport an adorable little baby bump. I had no idea though that as soon as I started showing and expanding, I became public domain for everybody's rude and hurtful comments. Here are seven things people have actually said to me.
- "Wow, I wasn't as big as you when I was that far along. But don't worry, because you haven't gained too much weight in your face and arms." — My neighbor from down the street drove all the way over just to tell me this. She's also a mother of a one year old.
- "Wow, you're huge. You could give birth right now." — I was only 24 weeks pregnant.
- My dentist said, "Look at that belly! What are you eight months pregnant?" I smiled and said, "Nope, just four and a half months." And she said, "Oh, well are you sure there aren't twins in there?"
- "I can really tell you're pregnant in your face." — A close relative said this to me. So basically she was telling a pregnant lady her face was fat. Nice.
