Is it weird

Is it weird if someone goes on and on about concerns about their baby's size near the end of pregnancy, and then as soon as the baby is born doesn't tell anyone how big the baby was? Even if people specifically ask, they just avoid the question.

  • Er...

    Maybe the person is embarrassed about how big or small their baby was? I guess? I dunno.

  • I'm guessing maybe it was embarrassment about how small, but I don't get it because the person went on and on about concerns about the babies size while she was pregnant, so everyone already knows the baby is small. So now everyone's like "oh, he's so tiny! How big was he?" And she won't say, just changes the subject or something.

  • I would think if what you are saying about changing the subject, then it is embarrassment or maybe she just gets irritated with people asking all the time?

  • No she's not who I'm talking about. The baby I'm talking about is maybe 4 or 5 lbs, I don't know, that's my guess.

  • wass it born early? or did the mother do anything while she was pregnant that could have caused it? My son was 6lbs when he was born and was in the nicu for 2wks because he couldnt breath on his own. I smoked while i was pregnant and so i have always blamed myself, he is fine and normal now. but. I never have felt ashamed to tell someone.

  • No nothing she did, they were concerned at the end of her pregnancy that there was a problem with the placenta, which there was. So, nothing to be ashamed of, especially when everyone already knew about it. It's not like she went full term and surprise had a 4 lb baby or something.
