I know many of you pregnant ladies have said how annoyed you feel when someone strares at your bump, well today a fellow student was working in the lab, and I couldn’t stop but glance at her bump. At first I wasn’t sure then I became so curious because she was working with chemicals in the lab like nothing, then the inevitable happened, I asked her kindly if she was pregnant. The answer was a YES, and she told me not to tell anyone. OMG, I hope she doesn’t think I am a noisy woman. Actually, we talked quite a bit and she has shared with me her concern of having a baby while in grad school many months ago–I felt compeled. I am guilty–THE END.
@AnaA:@Laurenskii: I asked her as privately as I could. You can definitely tell she is. I am sure everyone can tell–and soon will know. I was more interested to see if her advisor knew, but I guess not. It was important to me when my time comes. She is 4 + months pregnant. I am very happy for the couple. I know her husband well.
It kills me not to ask! There was a girl at work who I knew was trying and I also have never seen turn down wine. She didn’t drink at happy hour and then 2 months later her boobs were big and she looked chubby in the gut. It killed me not to ask, but a month later she finally announced she was having twins 🙂
I’m of the opinion that you shouldn’t ask. Period. Another woman’s uterus is not up for discussion unless she’s started the conversation with you. You also don’t know what that woman is going through. Perhaps she is ttcing but having a hard time conceiving or maybe she has recently or is experiencing a miscarriage. Asking her that question can bring up negative feelings for her. Bottom line – its none of your business.
