Got my first one of those comments, for this pregnancy, yesterday at the mall. People!!
Anyone else getting crazy comments?
Nothing in my experience and comments I got beats the old lady in a street market shouting to the whole world how big my belly was lol Best thing is ignore or have a good come back! Once a friend of mine who has a beer belly was making mean jokes about my growing belly, one of them was something like did you eat an elephant. I finally told him at least my excuse is pregnancy, what's yours? (He doesn't have any health issues accept drinking a lot of beer and not to watching what he eats). The jokes stopped :-p
I've only gotten one rude comment from a man I don't even know at work. He asked when I was due, I told him Thanksgiving, he looked completely horrified and said "WOW, are you sure?". I then told him "Well, it's twins." And he sighed in relief saying "oh, Ok, I was gonna say..." Dude, go away, i don't even know you. Usually I start with the twins thing because its just easier....but the one time I didn't say that up front someone freaked out. lol I know I'm BIG ok??
I just try and go with the flow mostly though, the "Do twins run in your family?" question is sooooooo annoying at this point. I usually just smile and say No, they were quite the surprise. And I try to remember that people are just super curious and hey if they are interested, I will talk about it with them. Even if I have to hear about their brother's sister in law's cousin who had twins twice. lol
I usually got the opposite comment, like "how many more months?" Me: "Two weeks", them: "are you sure?" well, yes I was sure I never expected so many comments about pregnancy. In Switzerland we are very reserved/cautious. No one would ever comment a belly of a stranger, never ever.
