People are morons.  It is NEVER okay to say something about a woman being pregnant unless you are absoultely positive that is the case.  I don’t understand people who do this.

You don’t ask a woman about her pregnancy unless you see a baby coming out of her.  End of story.  Boys are dumb.

You definitely handled the situation better than I would have. The second time around I would’ve been just a little bit snarky. Good for you for keeping your composure! It is obvious that the guy is an idiot. Hoepfully he is better at making sandwiches than he is with making small talk.

That is really really rude! Yeah, you definitely don’t ask that unless the woman announces it.

Even though I’m small, the way I’m built actually makes me look pregnant. I’m surprised people don’t ask me!

Last year I worked at a bar where 3 of the female staff got pregnant and left over the span of a few months. I just happened to quit around the same time and gained a bunch of weight afterwards. I was in one night for a drink and one of the ‘concerned’ regulars was shocked that I was drinking when I was ‘with child’ as he put it.

I was pretty tipsy and, no longer required to be nice to iodiot customers, gave him a piece of my mind haha. I doubt he will make that assumption again!!!!

Ah!  That’s so rude.  Some people have no couth!  I’ve been asked that before.  Last June I was wearing a long summer dress and a girl asked me if it was because I was hiding a baby bump.  Wth?  She was like, “no, no, you’re really thin, I just thought maybe that is why you chose that to wear?”.  Who asks that?  I barely knew her, she is the friend of a friend.  So dumb.

4 or 5 months after I had my son I had dropped a couple pounds (just a couple) but was feeling really good because I had gained so much. That day someone asked me when the baby was due…..I laugh now but at the time I was so hurt.

People have said the same thing to me. My little sisters aren’t even close to being chunky like me, but women in my family just have a little pooch and people have make comments like this to them as well.

 

Some people’s children….

A few months back my friend’s 4 year old foster kid poked at my stomach and asked if there was a baby in my tummy. I said, no honey, I’m just fat and I smiled at her. She had no idea. I thought it was cute but if an adult asked I’d assume they were a moron.
