Comments galore.

Being pregnant is a funny experience because people suddenly feel like it’s OK to comment on things they wouldn't normally comment on. Every day at work there's at least one person who makes some sort of comment about my appearance - the thing is their comments vary day to day. So far I have been told you're getting fat, you look pregnant now, your face is fat, your face is splotchy, you're barely showing, you can’t tell you're pregnant, you haven’t put on any weight, etc... Sometimes all in the one day. I'm not sure how I can be fat and skinny, showing and not showing all at the same time...

I also keep getting advice - some of it very bizarre. Things like I shouldn’t have a cat or wear sunscreen because they could cause diabetes in my developing baby. Hmm.. I don't think there's been studies done into that one!

Must be really tempting to tell people to mind their own business or explain that the only acceptable comment is "you look great" :-)

hmm... yeah well you can always ignore the content and take it as a nice expression of interest :) nice that people notice and pay attention :)

The ones that really annoyed me were about the food I was eating, specially when they came from people, who didn't have very healthy eating habits themselves.
