Why is it that being around pregnant women gives people the license to say mean things? AND why is it that you have to just politely take it? (Not that I really want to retaliate.) I'm a 135lb, 30 week pregnant mom and somehow no one seems to understand why it still hurts my feelings to get comments like "Awww! You're getting fat!" or "Hey kid, looks like you need to go on a diet." (I was 120 before baby.) I know I'm smallish but very healthy, I know its part of the whole pregnancy thing... But OW!
Friends/Family say "Oh, Just respond with humor, you know they were only being funny.". HA. Ha. ha.
