*Note: Our ideas are pretty candid, test them out at your own risk.
#1 Rub your tummy
Ah, yes. Only dummies would think that you’re bloated from a filling dinner. If your bump isn’t that obvious yet, trying rubbing it while leaning backwards and exhaling a little. It would get people’s attention, and if they stare at your tummy long enough, they might just stand up and offer their seat to you.
#2 Talk about it
If you’re alone, pick up the phone and give a call to your mum to let her know how you and the baby are doing, and that you’re heading home after a gynaecologist appointment. Be sure to say it loudly and touch your belly while doing it for added effect.
#3 Walk like a penguin
No harm trying, right?
#4 Get your hubby in on it too
Nothing says teamwork than when your hubby helps. If you’re out on a weekend and the trains and buses are packed, get him to gently pat your tummy and talk about the baby. Hint: while touching the belly, get him to look around and ask you, “Do you wanna sit?”
#5 Be direct
Or you know, if you really want to sit, you could just ask.
