Dontcha love that? That used to happen to me all the time. I always carried big.

I think you get bigger with every pregnancy.
I did anyway.

With my first, no one could tell until the last couple of months.

I am due on November 14th, and this is my fifth baby. I recently saw my aunt at a retirement party we had for my dad and she came up to me and said, "Wow, you've REALLY gotten big!!" What do you say to something like that?!... I was a little teary as I was telling my husband about it later, but he just laughed and said not to worry about it. But I know what you mean. There's nothing like being told that you're as big as a barn when you still have better than three months to go!
Blessings to you, fellow pregnant momma!

Clearly an ignorant person. 'Nuff said ;]

I remember even with my FIRST baby people were asking, "Haven't you had that baby YET?" when I was only five months! I always carried big but had small babies.

You haven't experienced the ultimate until you have twins. At 7 months people would look at me in awe when I was shopping and wanted to know if I was over due, then they would blanche when I would cheerfully reply "No it's twins! I'm not due for another two months."

The best was when I was dropping my brother off at the airport. I could see the aprehensive expressions as I waddled up to the check-in desk. The relief was palpable when I explained I was not flying, just dropping off my brother. Airlines get very fussy during the last trimester and will refuse to board you if you are too far along.

So today someone asked me if I am going to start losing the baby weight. Nice, huh?

The worst part is, I weigh less now than before I got pregnant the first time!

When I was about 7 months pregnant, another teacher told me (with perhaps a little too much glee) that one of the (male) assistant principals had remarked that I looked like I was carrying twins.

Thanks. So. Much. Principals are not ALWAYS your pals, as it turns out.
