Any positive comments??

Since we all like to talk about the stupid things friends/coworkers/family/strangers say to us, let's hear some of the comments that actually make us feel good!

Coworkers today: "your baby bump is adorable"

I actually like that one. Ready, go!

Re: Any positive comments??

  • My sister requests frequent bump pics and always tells me how cute I am, even if I'm feeling yucky.

    I had a meeting at a coffee shop yesterday and got some hot water for the tea I brought. The person behind the counter noticed my bump and said to her coworker as I was walking away, "Oh, she's pregnant! How cute!"
  • Always love the "you make such a cute/pretty preg woman!"  this weekend at my shower I got "you are the most in shape preg woman", that one made me feel really good and healthy about myself!

    "You're all belly"

     

    I guess that means I am not fat everywhere else...

  • All of these are good! We need to compile a list of "what's okay to say to a pregnant woman" and publish it somewhere.

  • I am so thankful for my friends who have given day care recommendations even though none have panned out, it means a lot that people are offering suggestions on people they trust to watch their child.

  • I was told that my bump is big. Due to my history, that's a huge compliment.

  • A co-worker commented on how big my belly has gotten but followed up with "you can't even tell from behind." Which I will take as a compliment since my a&$ feels like it is getting huge! 
  • "You are beyond a hot pregnant woman! Seriously, you're rockin that bump well!" That made my day.

  • I get mostly positive comments from people I know.  Everyone tells me I look great and when I show them my super sized feet I get a lot of sympathy. 
  • I got "You really wear pregnancy well, I see the glow" from an acquaintance.  
    The fact that I was all dressed up, had 3 days worth of self tanning lotion (And mascara) on at the time could have had something to do with that. Wink

     My husband says w/ pride "she's growing!" (referring to baby not my belly), and I think that's super cute.

    haha I had someone tell me this when I was about 17 weeks and had almost no belly yet. Still just looked like I ate too much. I figured she told me that just because that's what you're supposed to tell pregnant women lol

  • I was at a wedding shower over the weekend and was told by father of the groom that I was one on the cutest pregnant people he'd ever seen and he hoped that didn't make me feel uncomfortable that he told me that- pshhh it totally made my weekend. DH was rolling his eyes at me because I was beaming the whole car ride home.

    I just got that one last week too- Even better since it came from a woman who generally lacks social skills!

  • A couple of my friends and family at different occasions have said "you don't look like you've gained any weight other then in your baby belly, you looks great!" Makes me feel a little better considering I've already gained 30 pounds!!!! And I feel that 27 pounds have landed in my thighs, butt, arms and neck! Made my day to hear them say that.
  • My best friend ask for weekly bump pics and always goes on about how cute and round my belly is getting even though I really look like crap.

  • I meet my running group at the track every Wednesday night.  Last week, one of my friends whom I didn't get to talk to since I just walk around now instead of running with everyone else, sent me a Facebook message that said I was the cutest pregnant person!  I thought it was so nice and made my day!!

    I am lame and cannot get cute tickers to work on my signature.

  • I've had lots of people tell me how great I look. I'm not sure how they expect me to look or if they are just referring to the fact that I haven't gained weight out of control and look very healthy for a pregnant woman. Whatever they mean, it's been helpful since I have days where I really feel like a whale instead of pretty.
  • My favorite one yesterday was: wow! You look like you just swallowed a basketball ! Like PP said I have gained 28lb , that I feel is all in my butt, so it felt good:

  • DH is always telling me how adorable my belly is.  And today when I got dressed he looked at me and said "you look so cute today!!".

    I also overheard DH and SIL talking at Father's Day about how good I look.  They didn't realize I could hear (they were in the next room) which makes it even better.

  • I'm doing awesome with weight gain this time, only gained about 20 pounds thus far.  (WOOT!)

    We took DS swimming at DH's uncle's house, and his aunt and cousins all said how great I look and how I'm only showing in my belly, not my face like last time.  That was pretty nice!

  • In response to my bed rest adventures people tell me I'm doing a great job, that they understand this can't be easy, how I'm already a good mama and doing a great job taking care of these girls.

  • "You're not that big..." any other day, I would see this as a back handed compliment but I still see it as "you are very pregnant and haven't gained that much weight." I was overweight before getting pregnant but I really do feel like I haven't really spread out, it feels like it is all sitting in my stomach. 

     

    It made me smile.

  • My doctor said as I was leaving the room, "You don't look pregnant from behind!"  I was so proud, my husband caught me in the bathroom trying to see what I looked like from behind for a good 1/2 hour.

  • At a friend's son's pool party on sunday everyone was saying I looked great. Seeing as I was super selfconcious in my baithing suit in front of everyone I really liked hearing that. One friend even asked why I "wasn't rocking the bikini because you totally should". That made me feel pretty good for sure.
