anyone else have this happen?

I'm 31 weeks pregnant and EVERYONE keeps saying they think I'm further along or asking if I'm having twins. My belly is very big, even I feel like it's bigger than it should but it's driving me crazy!

I was at the store today and this women came up and said "awh when are you due?" and I told her "October 2nd" and she gave me a weird look and said "twins?" and I was like "no....just one little girl" and she said "I don't think you are going to make it to october 2nd!"

Same thing with a guy in the neighborhood, he doesn't believe I'm due October 2nd. He says I'm gonna pop any day.

My whole family feels the same way.

I was thinking I was pregnant the month before I got a positive...but I don't know! Anyone else have people saying that to you all the time??

  • A lot of people are telling me im having twins when its just one little boy. I have had several women comment on the fact that they cant believe im due in September. Though I honestly dont think I look that big.

  • Everyone carries different. Sounds like you carry similar to the way I do, all out front. Because of that I look HUGE, and got many of those comments myself (and expecting this time around too). That is when you just smile and say, we know our dates/ how many we are having, thanks for asking.

  • Sometimes when you are smaller or have a smaller build people think that you are farther along then u are. Doctors are really good at seeing how far along you are when they see the baby. It is normal though, it happened to me also. People thought i was going to pop any day when I was 35 weeks and It drove me crazy until I had the baby cause I was so ready to have him. Best wishes!!

  • yes, it's really annoying. I just smile and walk away. I think it's because I'm a small person, and I'm ALL baby, so I look small with a huge tummy. I'm sorry that happens to you, I know how AHHH it can make you.

  • i knw it's very annoying but try an relax, cause with both of my pregnancies people kept telling me how big i was and it bothered me so much. so remember ur pregnant and beautiful and as long as ur baby is healthy then forget about anything else

  • I get that alot too....I go into a store and people are like your ready to pop aren't you! And I just look at them and say 5 more weeks. They always ask if I am having twins. I am only having one boy! Like someone above said everyone carries different and it doesn't matter what other people think. All that matters is how you feel!

  • Oh my god, everyone said that to me. Even the custodian who worked at my school!!! People in the mall COULD NOT EVEN controll themselves... they had to ask if there was twins.

    I didn't care, I loved how big I was.

    And my baby was born late!!

    (Sometimes I would humor myself and tell strangers I was having triplets)

  • lol, don't worry. if you didn't have a huge belly they would say that you're too small and should eat more, blah blah blah. people just always have to say something lol
