Please tell me to get back in my box if i'm being out of order but I work in London (live in Hertfordshire) and i have to get the train AND the tube into London every day. I am 12 weeks pregnant now and even though i'm not showing i do feel queasy and faint when I am travelling, especially when i have to stand up on a packed carriage. I have got a 'baby on board' badge so it's clear to people that I am pregnant. I got on the tube this morning and various people looked at me, at my badge, and went back to reading their papers! No-one offered their seat and once they had seen my badge they made an effort NOT to look again. Now before i was pregnant I would ALWAYS give up my seat for a pregnant woman (or an elderly person come to think of it!) whether she had a big bump or not! I feel bad asking people to give up their seats when they obviously don't want to but honestly - you would think someone might have a bit of consideration!?! Am i over-reacting or does this happen a lot? Do i have to have a huge bump before anyone will let me sit down?!?
