Do I look big to you?

 I've been told I look big for how far along I am. Even asked if I'm having twins.. i hope that was a joke.

But I'm really curious now- do I look too big? I'll be 29 weeks on Tuesday.

Also, a question for you ladies that got stretch marks during your pregnancy... when did they start to show up?

I started to put strechmark cream b4 i was showing on my belly and never got a mark....but dodnt start on my back until it was too late. I have them on my hips. Drink TONS of water!!!

And no, you dont look big. You look beautiful!!! IDK why people feel the need to tell women they look to big for their week in pregnancy. Like there is a fricken book out there that says what you "should" look like. everyone is different. Tell them "oh, im sorry. What should I look like" I always tried to come up with smart ass remarks that left them feeling stupid....

Thank you ladies =) 

I don't know why people keep asking me "are you sure you're only __ weeks?!?" and keep telling me I'm huge.

I don't think I look HUGE, but this is my first so I really wouldn't know..

 I know! It's so rude, and alot of those comments were from men... like they're the experts!!
