So I was at my mom's birthday celebration and this old lady came to me and asked how far along I was. I told her (at the time) 6 months. She looked at me with a shocking/judgemental face and said: "oh my... I think that baby is waaay too small. Because when I was 5 months pregnant, I was at least THIS MUCH", and started stretching her arm over to show me how much bigger she was then.
Now, what is the purpose of such remarks? Do people think they are helping?
