Is Asking How Much Friends Gained During Pregnancy Rude?

This post comes from our group The Pregnancy Posse from member Galonabudget.

I'm eight weeks pregnant and slowly learning what other moms and moms-to-be consider fair game in terms of sharing and insight. My best friend has two young children and has been my go-to call throughout my planning for pregnancy and questions about the day-to-day of carrying a baby, but it's exciting to ask other friends and family and hear their suggestions as well. Because pregnancy is so new to me I'm thrilled to share all the gory details, including how much I've gained thus far (not much, obviously), but my best friend — and others — have awkwardly avoided my questions about their pregnancy weight gain. Is it rude for me to ask or compare how much weight they had gained at the same stage?
