Lurker from 2nd tri... And boy do I relate!
At 26 weeks and barely 16 lbs gained, I got pissed when SO's mother and sisters commented on how "big" I'm getting.
Biche, I haven't gained anything on my thighs, legs, OR arms, just the boobies and the belly, so, Sister#2, if you're seriously going to address my "huge gain", then maybe you should also address the fact that after 2 years PP, you still look about 35 weeks pregnant, haven't lost ANY of the 50lbs you gained while pregnant with your DD2 AND get comments about your EDD every single week, although you are NOT pregnant. I never commented on that, as I was raised right. Obviously, you were not!
Fortunately, his mother's boyfriend was quick to jump in and say I was all belly and didn't look pregnant from the back. Didn't believe a single word, but it had them realize how rude they were being.
I mean, I expect to gain anywhere from 30 to 40 pounds total, what is that going to make me, a frickin' whale?! I don't think people understand how hard it is, especially when PS, to try and restrict the weight gain, because let's face it, not all plus sized pregnant women lose weight instead of gaining. I feel that if you have a less than stellar record of weight gain/loss you should never comment on anyone's gain/loss.
