Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

People keep asking me if I'm having twins. It's so rude. Any snappy comebacks?

"No, are you?" I sounds childish but it gets the point across.

Unfortunately, I think this is becoming a popular question to ask pregnant women.  I've been asked several times myself starting around 14 weeks (I'm now 26 wks) and my best friend who is barely 8 weeks along has already been asked.I'm hoping people aren't asking because they think I'm overly large, but because of the increase in the number of twins and multiples being born.

I was asked this by my mother-in-law when I first started showing at 13 weeks. I just all-of-a-sudden went from thicker to distended pretty-much overnight.I think being honest is fine with people you know, and strangers on the street can deal with whatever you feel like saying - whether honesty, a smart comment, an outrageous lie ("No, there were ten heartbeats!") or just a dirty look.

tell 'em it's triplets, then walk away.

I am currently 7 weeks pregnant and popped out like no other right around the end of my 5th week... so instead of looking 7 weeks I look as though I am 6 months along already.  I hear it constantly and it is very frustrating and to the point of me becoming nasty with people.
