Default "You don't look pregnant"

How should one take this?

When people tell me that, which I heard 5 times just today... I think they mean, "Oh, you just look fat as usual."

With all 3 pregnancies, my stomach popped out WAY up top at first, so it goes out, then in slightly at the waist and then out again near the bottom. Then as time goes by, it pops out more evenly and I really start to look pregnant.

I've told a few people (and it's the truth) that I've only gained about 5-6 lbs so far and I'm 17w1d. I'm a big girl to begin with but still I think that's pretty good.

I got SO tired of people and their STUPID comments when I was pregnant. To me- you only tell a regnant woman that she looks GREAT and BEAUTIFUL! DUH! I would just ignore them- as I had to do- and of course laugh at them. I bet you look FABULOUS and they are probably just JEALOUS!

I guess that's better than asking how far along you are when you're not pregnant
 
Look on the bright side love!

True-- that just happened to a friend of mine. The other lady and the friend were humiliated.

I hear it everyday too. It probably doesn't help that I'm still comfortable in regular clothes and that I've gained no weight YET either.
