I am currently 16 weeks pregnant with my first child.
I am 22 yo and working in retail (with a lot of grown women)
My problem is, daily my body and its changes seems to be the hot topic. A very common comment i am receiving is "my, your breast are huge", "your boobs are so big, they must be so uncomfortable". etc
Another focal point in conversation is the fact that I am 22 yo, pregnant and not married.
I constantly feel judged by these women who ask "are you going to get married before the baby comes", "most women like to be married before they bring a baby into their lives".
I am at the point now where i am tired of laughing it off because it just plain hurts.
The worst thing is nothing is off limits for these women to ask or comment on. I dread going to work each morning as I have no idea whats going to be said next.
Has anyone else experienced this in their workplace? How did you overcome it or resolve the issue?
what are comments work colleague's have said?
So far ive got comments to my face or behind my back about my bump how big it is one day and lack of the next, size of my backside, moodiness, my appearance, marriage, birth plans, etc.
