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!
"You're all belly"
I guess that means I am not fat everywhere else...
ravenclaw1:My sister requests frequent bump pics and always tells me how cute I am, even if I'm feeling yucky.
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.

rachelstauf:I actually really like it when DH tells me how big my tummy is starting to get. He says it with such pride!
My husband says w/ pride "she's growing!" (referring to baby not my belly), and I think that's super cute.

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