Let the comments begin

I'm pregnant, therefore people have started to say weird things to me.

I've officially been told that my face looks "pregnant." In the exact words of my coworker, "Your face looks pregnant. Not like you are fat...you were too skinny before though, so it's not bad."

Umm...that sounds to me like you are saying my face looks fatter...no sugar coating that.

Feel free to comment on how that is a silly comment, but NOT if you agree with it or not. The picture right below is me 3 weeks ago, the one below that is this VERY moment. Oh well. Just call me Pregnant Face. (Yes I purposefully made the below picture smaller in case you are actually sitting there going..."hmm...maybe she IS a fat face. Not sure though cause the pic of small" Don't even think about enlarging it :) )

LOL. i do NOT think your face looks fat. people are rude. you're like barely pregnant...tell them to get back to you in 8 months :)

I would agree that you have the "pregnant glow" about you, as I like to call it.

(Don't spend too long thinking about what a glow entails...I just wanted to make a comment and I'm tired and it's all I could come up with) :).

Girl you do not have a pregnant face... some people do NOT have a filter... they just suck at life. I bet you're beautiful and glowing :)

Hope all is going well, miss ya!

Whatever...as if you could have a fat face! Maybe in a few months though!! Oh the joys of gaining weight! I still need to call you!

I remember people would ask me when I was due, and they would look really surprised when I would say I still had 2 or 3 months...the nerve! Or people will say things like, "Man, you really stick out there! Do you lay plates on your tummy?"

You look BEAUTIFUL...not fat-faced at all. I think sometimes people say things like that to make themselves feel better...

Nope, all good still. What's the due date again? And what're we going to name the little guy?

Your face won't get fat untill you start retaining water circa 8 month. Stupid people. It's okay. I look like a drank a keg. :) Also....Mikes comment made Trev and I laugh so hard. mostly because Mike was actualyl commenting on a blog....but Trev liked it. :)
Tell baby Rose hello.

You certainly don't look fat - infact, when you are 9 months prego and I hear you say you are fat I just might have to punch you! Just kidding. I have pregnancy face (not right now, thanks goodness) but my skin just seems to change! I break out and I look tired and I seem to loose all my color. From the evidence that you posted, I see that NONE OF THOSE describe how you look! You look great! I cannot wait to see your belly progress. Hang in there - ignore you co-worker!

You are perfectly lovely, as usual. Sometimes at the end your face can get a little rounder with fluid, but wow, I'm sure not seeing it. Brace yourself for the onslaught of unsolicited comments. You WILL hear ALL of the following:

My, you are small for how far along you are. Goodness, you are big for how far along you are. You are carrying the baby low. You are carrying the baby high. Your skin is glowing. You look tired. You look radiant. You look sick. You look fabulous.

Oh Angie, I wish I could tell you it gets better, but sadly it does not. The comments will only get more annoying and rude... hopefully your office is a little more socially aware than mine was. Good luck!

Lenzi said...

That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard! And I know who said it which just confirms how you should SOOOO not pay attention! :)

I am also a co-worker who doesn't even think you look pregnant! Take that!

Oh, so true (about the crazy comments, NOT about the fat-face). I dreamed that someone said to me this week -- "You look like you're about to have a baby any minute!" I was COMPLETELY offended, because, of course, I already HAD my baby (but I still look pregnant -- way more pregnant than you, babe.)
