More of the things people say!

We had our baby shower yesterday (and it was awesome!)  My sister was there and she is pregnant too and only 3 weeks behind me.  She has never had a weight issue.  She is taller than me with long legs and a small baby bump.  I on the other hand am shorter, have always had trouble with my weight, and am measuring weeks ahead due to having 8 fibroids.  My Mom insisted that we stand side by side so she could take a picture.  It was right after my husband and I opened presents so everyone was gathered around.  I jokingly said well this isn't fair me having o stand next to her when she looks so good.  An old family friend said "I just really can't belive she is so close behind you in the pregnancy!  I mean you are just filled out everywhere and she just has a little bump! " Way to make me feel good :(  She is the only person who commented on my size at all.  She just kept saying" oh my gosh look how big you are", and "oh my you are huge!"  I guess if only one person said anything, I should be happy.  Everyone else was really supportive and nobody touched my belly :)  We had a great shower and baby has  alot of nice new things.  I really can' t complain

    Some people are just tactless.  So you have a different body type and that's fine. Remember your body is housing that little baby and that's its job right now. Many times people don't realize how hurtful a comment can be. Try to brush it off and know your body is doing a beautiful job growing that bebe!!

    Sounds like she doesn't have a filter at all.  :P

    I am sorry you had to endure that. 

    I am glad the shower went well, though!
