Guys I think it's safe to say that 5 was simply joking and taking the piss out of the whole 'like for a prayer' bandwagon on Facebook. Dunno why you thumbed down so much 5


It's a joke. She's saying that OP's size is due to candy rather than a baby. She probably said it to every pregnant woman she checked out this month, and assuming that nobody other than OP lost their sense of humour she'll probably say similar things around Christmas and thanksgiving too.

I agree, I'm eight months and last month my doc told me "you what food is right? GREAT, pack it on, you need 5 pounds for the next two weeks." it's a joke, trust me.

i'd be okay with someone saying that to me while i was pregnant. my husband and others around me would know not to make fun of my weight

It's not bad for pregnant women to eat candy in moderation. As long as she isn't eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Since you work with young children, you should know that...


Just cause you're pregnant doesn't give you reason to eat whatever and how much. I just had a baby and people constantly asked "I bet you eat like crazy huh?" or stated "You're not huge for 9 months!" One thing you definitely don't mess with a pregnant woman about is her weight. You do not want an angry pregnant woman.

I had a cousin that was pregnant. She had her cravings but she still ate reasonably and even worked out. She gained 75 lbs. theres an average but not every woman will fit within that average.

I knew someone who got pregnant and went from 105 to 190 pounds. She had twins, though, so I'm not entirely sure she's in the same category for weight gain. I just felt the need to put my thoughts in.

I'm a fairly generous person, but even I will only give the baby 20 lbs of the blame. The rest is pure bon bons. Don't worry about it OP, it's only weight, it can be lost.

Pregnant women can't control how much they gain. As the youngest of five, my mom gained various amounts with each pregnancy. And my very petite older sister gained about 50 pounds with each of her boys. It's not just a matter of how the woman chooses to eat.

Oh that's not true! I gained so much weight with my first child. A ridiculous amount of weight!! They checked me for everything from gestational diabetes to preeclampsia. Come to find out, I had two bags of water with 1 baby. Probably lost a baby early in my pregnancy but the bag and fluids and everything still accumulated. Didn't know it until delivery. Bottom line is--I am a nurse and you just don't say that to someone who is pregnant--it's called hormones are in a fragile state right now! Each woman is different. Oh and I lost all that weight plus 10 pounds within 7 months.

I got a comment like that also. Usually it's because "they're worried about gestational diabetes." Another thing is they have a "weight gain plan." You should gain ONLY one pound a week, anymore and you're bad!
