I love my daughter and my boyfriend. He is over weight and she was born large baby and taller than an average baby. It upsets me when people try to tell me my daughter going to be bigger and taller than me because her dad is big. -_- how am I supposed to respond to that. Im like wtf I love my daughter no matter what so why do you have to say that to me.

Same here. My son was born
8lbs 1oz and 22in long and now he's 4 and tall and weighs almost 50lbs. His dad is a big guy and I'm not small like I used to be and everyone always says well no wonder he's such a big 4yr old. I'm like wtf is ur point. He's also super smart and is very advanced for his age

I wouldn't Let it upset you,
Your daughter is going to be beautiful.
Some times when people see the belly they think its ok to NOT THINK before they speak and say some pretty hurtful things.
Its terrible.
For example, my hubby is a very skinny 6'2 tall man., I'm a  little shorter, and plumper lol, and my entire pregnancy people say rude things like "you're baby is huge! You're gonna need a c-section" or "that ones gonna do some damage"
Like seriously?? Do people seriously think tall people are born abnormally huge????? I was born 6 pounds, my hubby was born 7 pound petite baby! Large adults does NOT mean huge babies!!
You're not the only one who gets rude comments hun. People don't think before they talk, just ignore them or kindly correct them and that just BC she's a larger Baby does not mean she's going to be huge, she could simply grow faster than average and stop at a certain age.
She could shoot up to 5'4 by age 12 and stop growing. No one knows! Child growth spurts are very random! Don't be upset:)

Thank you all for the support I plan to ignore the foolishness people can be it just upset me when my mom said that to me. I was born 7 pounds and my boyfriend was born over 8 pounds and she assumed that since my daughter was born 8lbs 11oz and 21 and a half inches long , she going to be like daddy. Soo what if she is . She is so adorable and advanced
