Yes I have and yes it is VERY rude! The worst experiences I have were when a lady said to me when I told her I was having a boy was, "Oh it's good you're getting that one over with first". She then stated that she only had girls and that girls were best. I was pissed! I told her that a boy was what I really wanted so I felt blessed that God answered my prayers. Some people are unbelievable! I also had someone tell me that my face was getting fat after I mentioned to them that cherry pie was my favorite kind of pie. I was so mad! I wanted to tell them that my face was no way near as fat as their a$$ but of course I refrained. I just told her that my diet was very healthy and I had not one piece of pie since I had been pregnant. After that, I filed a complaint about her rude behavior. Those are probably the worst things people have said to me so far. The stares at my belly are more like shocked glances. It is awkward though. People are weird.

I hid my pregnancy because of that. Now since I have a 14 month old, I can't. I always get the stares and the whispers., but it's mainly because I look under 15. I let them talk. I really don't care too much unless they say it to my face. I live in a community with a lot of vacationers that think they're entitled to everything and think they're better than any one who actually lives here year round. Ironically, a mom said I can't possibly know how to take care of my child. We were at the beach, they had a 15 month old boy (Their daughter was fishing right next to SO so they were talking.) The mom who said that ended up feeding the 15 month old chips and soda for lunch while LO had whole grain wheat grilled cheese and strawberries with whole milk :roll:



Needless to say, ignore it and just prove them wrong.

i dont get offended. people stare all the time and always ask when im due or how far along i am. im almost 18 weeks now and im HUGE compared to other people. everyone thinks its twins or just a biig baby. but the stares started a couple weeks ago. im getting used to it and just expecting the questions now.
