When you're in early pregnancy and not showing, yet people make comments about how big you already are and how much you ARE showing?



It's like..nooo, I'm just really bloated and feel fat..but thanks a lot.



Is that just me?

I haven't had that happen... but I'd probably be slightly offended.

People do it to me all the time. I'm 11 weeks..no, I'm not showing. I am pretty bloated..I thought people knew more about that, but to some, as soon as you know you're pregnant, anything more than a flat stomach is you 'showing'.

This second time around the bloating in the beginning was intense. I looked really far along, no matter how much I tried to hide it in baggy hoodies. lol.

Nope not just you. When I was only 8 weeks my aunt who I barely ever see kept saying that I was further along than I thought I was because of my belly. And any time anyone would ask how far along I was she would interrupt me and say "Oh she doesn't know" When I was very aware of how far along I was. I wanted to punch her and finally when she said that to someone I snapped and said "actually Im 8 weeks just some people can't mind their own business and think they know what's going on inside my uterus better than I do" it stopped after that.

I haven't had that problem.....I mainly get the "Oh...you're PREGNANT!?", especially at work. I'm 18 weeks along and still just look like I am chunky....I'd love to be like, yeah, I am! What, did you just assume I'm just a fatass? lol

My brother, when I was about 4 months pregnant, turned around and said, "your at the point where people aren't going to be sure if your getting fat or if you might be pregnant" lol I was so bloated and starting to feel my pants tighten more....last thing I felt like hearing but its funny to look back on
