One thing I have noticed is pregnancy brings out the opinion sharing in people. Strangers/acquaintances love telling you their perception of your size and your rate of growth. I find it hilarious (and of course a bit irritating but it seems like EVERYTHING irritates me these days:)).
I had a meeting with a vendor today who has known about my pregnancy since 12 weeks. She has 2 of her own children who are now grown. She asked how the pregnancy is coming, I let her know all is well and I am really enjoying it. Then I told her I am about to begin my 3rd trimester. She very quickly corrected me and said, you mean your 1st trimester. I was really confused and restated that I was about to begin my 3rd. She insisted I was mistaken. Not exactly sure how to reply, I said well next week I hit my 6 month mark so... To which she replied with an unrecognizable mumble which may have mentioned that she thought I was saying I was ending my third trimester or something. Do people not think I know where I am at in my pregnancy?
A woman I sit by at work (a woman who doesn't have children yet) informed me, I am small now, but 3 weeks before I deliver I will swell up and look enormous. Thanks sweetheart, how lovely a thought... However true it may be.
A different vendor of mine who has 5 year old twins told me I am going to have a big baby. Apparently I look large in her opinion. In my opinion I look just as I should but whatever.
Luckily my husband (the only opinion that actually matters) gives his opinion only when asked, and always insists I look perfect:) He always knows just what to say...
