Even though it’s family……that’s still kinda rude. :/ Sorry about that. I’ve had similar things happen when I wear certain outfits and it’s irritating! No. If I were pregnant, don’t you think there would be an announcement of some sort?

Ugh, sorry!!!!

Are you on any new medications?  I gained about 20 pounds all in my middle once because of that.   If you’re stressing out that could be it, too.  It helps pack it on all there in the tummy where none of us want it.

You may want to see a Doc, just in case.  It could be a variety of things and perhaps they can ‘fix’ it πŸ™‚

Good luck and I say just punch the next person that asks! πŸ˜‰

I know how you feel! I don’t wear certain shirts to work anymore because I got tired of people asking me if I was pregnant.

Sorry that you’ve been hearing that.  With IBS symptoms and weight gain, maybe you should see your doctor??  I wish you well.

I feel ya, I had a guy ask me once if I “had my baby” uh… “weren’t you pregnant at the beginning of the semester?”  No… never was.

Ugh, I am so sorry! I once heard someone say “you don’t ask if a woman is pregnant unless you see the head emerging from between her legs!” and I go by that motto!

Wow.  Sorry to hear this!  But want to add, that being pregnant, if and when a woman becomes pregnant is BEING BEAUTIFUL!

I know you’re not, but had to give my love and props to all the bees here who ARE pregnant!  Been there myself, dun that, and got a temporarily larger T shirt πŸ™‚

Now back to the topic…   

When I moved in w/DH two months before our wedding, I put on a bit of weight instead of losing!

I began suddenly finding myself cooking for 3 people, 2 of which are guys (my 12 year old son and DH) and two of the three of us was NOT dieting.

So it was hard, time consuming, and a challenge.

Imho, sometimes being happy and a newlywed can bring on the unwanted pounds!  But they were happy ones!

Ohhh no!  That’s such a no-no to ask someone if you’re not sure.  When women are stressed, they put weight on around their stomach.  When I first started teaching, I gained 30 pounds.  With everything you’ve been dealing with, it’s probably just stress weight.  Find some YOU time, girl! 

And even though I’ve never seen you, I bet you are beautiful as-is!

Have you gone to your doctor?

One of my best friends put on sudden weight and didn’t “feel” much in it (all around her belly) and turns out there was a large tumor.

I know this is extreme and I wouldn’t wish what she had to deal with on anyone -but it was a sudden weight gain and an unreal outcome.

I would hope it’s not anything extreme, but weight gain you’re questioning could be a variety of things and probably best dealt with by seeing your doctor first!!

Ugh! That is very rude! I’ve been on the recieving end of the incorrect “when are you due comment” and it is not fun.  I’m sure you are very beautiful no matter what, but if your weight gain you talked about is sudden or cannot be attributed to stress, etc you might want to see a doctor.

I feel ya. I was at an event my junior or senior year of college and I was wearing a black, empire waist dress I had. I thought it looked great on me! Some woman I didn’t know, had never met, and was older and should have known better, came up to me, placed her hand on my stomach and asked when I was due. I wasn’t pregnant. I was not even that fat, I mean, I could have stood to loose like, 10 or 15 lbs but not all in my tummy. I was horrified. Imagine being like, 20 or 21 and having some lady you don’t even know ask you if you were pregnant.

Sorry this happened to you SoontobeMrs.A πŸ™

I do wonder if people think I’m pregnant. I’ve put on some weight in the last few months, and have a belly that I didn’t have before.
