Sorry having a moment with no one to talk to. I told my colleagues at work a few weeks ago that I was pregnant simply because I couldn't hide my bump anymore. Since then, a number of my male colleagues, (I work in a 99% male environment) have taken to calling me chubby and fatty amongst other things and constantly commenting when I eat anything in front of them - "you can't have a biscuit, you're already full of biscuits", or "I'm convinced she's just going to give birth to a pie", "you've turned into a python I can still see you digesting yesterday's Sunday roast" etc etc. Most of the time I can shake it off, but note that I'm getting increasingly paranoid about my weight gain and consider what they've said throughout the day when I get home. Even though I've managed to stay a size 14, I keep checking my pregnancy weight calculator to ensure I'm on a normal track and poking myself in the mirror and note I've started eating in secret and have burst out crying a couple of times in disgust at my curves. I know hormones are mixed up in this, but I just can't get these guys to stop. I've told them to stop. I even put my hand up and said that their comments were verging on harrassment. I even stooped to telling them the truth that my husband was really angry at them for damaging my self confidence but they just laughed and said it's what men do - it's just friendly banter. But I can't get personal back at them to stoop to their level or allow them to see that as me condoning what they say to me. So, today, I told a female colleague my concerns and asked for her advice. A few hours later I watched as she marched the guys in question one by one into a meeting room. I don't know what was said. She left before I could get out of my meeting and all of the guys kept their heads down and blanked me. And now I just can't shake this feeling of guilt and anxiety that I shouldn't have said anything and that I've done something wrong. I feel pretty pathetic all round and know I need to get a grip. Thank you for letting me vent. Just hope hubby isn't disappointed in me when he gets home for letting it get to me today. There are some things about coping with pregnancy that have come as a real shock and this is one of them.
