The Bump Expert

Funny how people somehow think this is an appropriate question, right? If you don’t feel like sharing the poundage, evade the question. Here are a few phrases that might help.

"Oh, enough! This baby sure likes chocolate."

"So far, so good—the doctor says I’m right on track with her expectations."

"Not as much as I thought I would. I think the yoga classes are helping."

"Ha. You can really tell the baby’s growing, right? It’s started kicking now too."

Resist the urge to dig back with, "I see you’ve gained weight too. How much?" Tempting, we know -- but not so nice.

How to Deal With Questions About Pregnancy Weight Gain

My MIL seems to be obsessed with my pregnancy weight gain and I don't get it! Everytime I see her she always has some comment about how huge I'm getting (which really isn't the case since I'm at 39 weeks and have only gained 20lbs) and then wants to know exactly how much I've gained. Then I get to hear her talk about how she only gain this much, or she lost this much at the beginning, or it only took her this long to lose all the baby weight.

How to Deal With Questions About Pregnancy Weight Gain

When I met my friend from Aspen she gave me that question and I did not want to give her an answer but she insisted and I told her how much I have gained. She is a fitness instructor and told me this is a normal rate, this surely gave more confidence that the pregnancy is going fine.
