This is awesome! Not that she rudely assumed you were pregnant, but that you played right into it lol

amanda.417:  Ok. I laughed. I have to give you credit for handling that with a great deal of humor… more than most people would. PS I’m sure you look fantastic.

I don’t know why anyone thinks it’s okay to ask even if someone looks 9 months pregnant! Just don’t! I had a woman in an elevator ask me when I was due (and there I was thinking I looked good on the way to a Christmas party). When I said I wasn’t pregnant she said “oh, well you look pregnant”. Gee thanks. I just replied with “nope, just fat but thanks”. I guess I should have asked her when she was due since she wasn’t skinny herself but since she was about 70 I just let it go. She was with her grown daughter who apparently thought the whole thing was funny. I didn’t find it amusing.

amanda.417:  OMG!! So glad you can laugh it off… this has happened to me before, its the worst!! Some foreign check out guy at my local corner store said to me one day, “are you expecting?” I said, “expecting what?”… he said, “oh… never mind.. you look bigger”. I was mortified and never went back in there lol!

I get that alot too, since I carry alot of weight in my stomach. Everytime someone asks me if I’m pregnant I come back with “Nope, I just love Chipotle.” Usually comes with a snarky smile and the mumbling of cuss words as I walk away.

Oh nooooo that’s the worst. I’m 8 months pregnant with twins and you would NOT believe the shit strangers say to me in public. Is it quad, you must be over due, whoa you are huge…. Yeah. Then once you have your baby for weeks afterwards people still think you are pregnant and are perplexed when you have a newborn and a bump. Conclusion? People are assholes.

amanda.417:  Ugh, I’m sorry.

I’ve been watching the building receptionist for like 6 months watching her belly grow, but being too afraid to say anything in case she was just gaining weight.  I finally said something last week when i thought it was pretty obviously a bump, but there was a split second when she looked at me before she confirmed she was pregnant, that I thought “oh shoot, she’s not!!!!!”  The funny part is that I think she was offended I had waited so long to say something.  I asked “so are you pregnant?” and her response was “yes, I am VERY pregnant”.  Hmmm, ok 🙂

sonyazach87:  My old crossfit coach is one of the two on the right in the pic, and she said people STILL ignore her bump until she brings it up lol.

heputaringonit:  lol. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t!

My coworker asks me at least once a week if I’m pregnant (because she wants me to be). Maybe next time I’ll start crying- “No! Do I look pregnant???” T_T

Ha ha ha! This was good!  I don’t think i would be polite at all though, if someone asked me when I’m due

gingerkitten:  well, now that I’m reading other responses, maybe she was offended I asked at all????

LMAO!  That’s a good way to make her stop!

I can’t stop laughing. I’m sorry some people have as much tact as a doorknob but that story just made my day!
