Anyone notice how pregnant women check each other out?

I'm just now showing ( a lot) and I notice other pregnant women checking me out in stores, restaurants, etc. It's not in a sexual way, of course, they just sort of look out of curiousity. I suppose I do the same thing, but it's pretty funny. I often have the urge to go up and start asking them questions, but I never do.

  • I think we just think being pregnant is a wonderful and beautiful thing and some of us miss it.

  • Yes, you are right: i miss that about being pregos. I would always end up stricking up a conversation with someone at a check out line, or walking, or anywhere...All talk about baby stuff of course. It made me feel warm and fuzzy!

  • Women check each other out all of the time, pregnant or not! We're critical that way!

  • I notice people do it to me and a lot of people do ask questions but I never do because I dont really care unless they are friends or family...and I hate when people ask me about my pregnancy. If anything has changed since the last time I talked to you and I feel like sharing I will.

  • Its another way to be competitive. I was huge but with twins, I gave an evil smirk to women who were as big or bigger with one. It is the only time in my life I felt like a skinny healthy person. Not being the biggest pregnant one.

  • Really? Do you really think we're comparing how 'big' we look? As in fat?
