Do you get jealous if a woman is thin during her pregnancy?

You know, the woman who's all belly... can't tell she's pregnant from behind? Honestly, are you ever mean to this woman?

  • why would some one be jealous? that's odd. i concentrate more of if someone's pregnant no matter how huge or small for a healthy pregnancy and baby. i know lots of women who gained a tremendous amount of weight and had babies five and six pounds. Look at octmom all of her babies were good weights.

  • No, because she feels exactly the way any pregnant woman feels. Swollen and miserable.

  • But they bounce back from pregnancy unscathed and with no battle scars. Have you ever known any women like this? If you weren't like this weren't you a tiny bit jealous?

  • I am like that and I get shitty remarks all the time like go eat a sandwich were are you keeping the baby. I have gained 22lbs still feel huge and I am almost done a few more weeks to go lol. I think I am more jealous that women who look more pregnant because they get asked when are they due and what are you having I rarely get asked because I am so small. I refrain from telling ppl how far along I am just for the fact that I always get the no way really remark

  • No...I don't get jealous when I'm NOT pregnant,and especially not when I am. First of all....I'm not all belly...because my boobs have gotten huge. Other than that, I'm small everywhere else. I think I look pretty darn good for being over 5 months pregnant. If for no other reason...I'm so grateful to God for giving me this baby that I would feel guilty harboring feelings of jealously because of the way I looked. I'm happier than I've ever been, and a tiny girl with a huge bump couldn't make me feel otherwise.

  • No, because that's how I look right now.
    If you look at me from the back I look as skinny as I did before I got pregnant, until I turn around then I look like I swallowed a watermelon...

    Am I jealous of chicks that aren't pregnant and super skinny? Very much so.

  • No I see what you're saying.... my belly button wont poke out so I always think that people think I'm just fat not pregnant. I have a friend that was like a size zero and only got up to a size 3 at month nine.... I'm not even a size 3 before pregnancy.... I think it's just because I'm a super insecure person and to see women that are beautiful prego with their glowing skin and their lack of stretch marks makes me sad. I feel even more terrible for my boyfriend.
    I will say that now that summer is coming I don't really envy any prego gal, cause we are all miserable.. I'm jealous of the non pregnant, flat tummy-ed girls with no cellulite or stretch marks.... I miss those days.
