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.
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.
