    Default Does everyone tell you you are "cute"?

    I think it's funny that the bigger I get, the more often I get complimented in child-like terms, like "cute as a button" (I am one big button), "adorable," etc. I usually think of cuteness as being something associated with being small and childlike, and I am not so small or childlike these days. In fact, it looks like I swallowed a small child! :-P

    Of course I like this a lot better than the people who tell me I am "huge." Or--this comment especially cracked me up--"Wow, are you BIG. But I mean that in a nice way."

    No one tells me I'm cute. Someone told me I have a cute little belly, but I think that referred more to the way I carry. I'm tall & do the little basketball thing.

    minus an inch. Tall doesn't usually equate to cute.

    We are "elegant", "sophisticated", "formidable" (!), pregnant ladies! Just not cute.

    people keep telling me I'm "tiny" and cute.........how is it possible I'm tiny when the little DD in my belly is measuring two weeks larger than my acutal due date!!
    I appreciate the compliments, which are soooo much better than "you're getting soooo big!"........

    I do like it when people tell me I look "great" and "healthy" though. I feel those are two realistic compliments which can actually be true while 30 weeks pregnant!!

    I like those words! I'd be very happy with "healthy."

    I am 5'4 and when, not pregnant, petite. My belly is quite large for 5 months/not multiples, and it seems the larger it gets, the more I get "cute." That's why it's so strange. I would prefer "elegant," though. That sounds lovely!

    I am so not cute. No one has bothered with that one. I have heard, "you look great" and "you have that glow", which makes me wonder: WTH does "that glow" look like? In my case, I'm afraid it was red-faced-from-being-in-97-degree-heat-chasing-toddler.
