amanda.417:  WOW..HOW NOSEY she sounds!

First of all..I have heard SO MANY horror stories about people asking when someone is due even if they aren’t pregnant that I REFUSE to ever mention a “baby bump” or pregnancy to anyone even if it is SO OBVIOUS they are ready to burst because I would never want this to happen to me. I wait for them to say something. Someone did this to my friend at work and she cried after and the guy felt SO BAD. Good for you for playing along. I am sure you don’t look pregnant at all!

LOL. This thread is great! 

I have never, ever, ever, ever brought up pregnancy to a women because you just never know. Even if a woman rubs her 9-month belly and talks about the baby I try to stay neutral. 

Funny story, SO and I have a favorite Mexican restaurant where we dine about twice a month. The owner’s wife is always in there (delivering drinks, seating guests, etc). Well, the first time we went in it was “obvious” she was 9 months pregnant. Of course I didn’t say anything. She is the sweetest woman ever and would spend so much time checking on us, refilling the chips, and such. But she doesn’t speak English so I never had a real conversation with her. WELL, 3 months later she was still “pregnant”. A year later she was still “pregnant”. It’s now been two years and I swear she still looks 9 months pregnant. I seriously would have bet a million dollars on it. She is tiny and thin, with this huge, perfectly round “pregnant” stomach. 

*shrug* I guess you can never tell. 🙂

Haha! I was on the train once when an elderly disabled woman asked me if I wanted to sit down! Seriosuly I looked that pregnant that this 80 year old woman wanted me to sit down!! It was the first, and the last time, I ever wore that dress.

I know I already commented on this, but I just remembered that I almost said something stupid at lunch, today. The waitress looked like she was defintely pregnant, and I almost said, “It must suck to be surrounded by all this delicious sushi and not be able to eat it!” 

Thank god the filter in my brain caught that one.

When my now husband and I were registering at Target we went up to guest services to give back the little registry gun. The lady at the desk said, “Wait, you forgot your free registry bundle” and handed me a baby shower bundle. I looked at her, looked at my belly, looked back at her, and she turned beet red and said, “oh! Did you register for a wedding?” 

Mind you, I was about 115 pounds and wearing a tight-fitting tank top (middle of the summer in the southwest) and I didn’t feel like I had a belly at all. I still can’t get over it. I wanted to ask her why she assumed that but felt embarrassed for her. My Fiance at the time thought it was awfully funny.

I had a woman ask me when I was due while I had my less than one month old baby with me. Uhh… do the math! If I had a newborn with me, how could I be pregnant enough to show with another baby already? I just had a rough pregnancy, none of my clothes fit properly, and I had not deflated yet. But I was still hormonal enough to be crushed by it. Years later now, I can laugh, but it was NOT funny at the time!

i get this allllll the time! i’m not plus sized but i do carry my weight in my belly PLUS i slouch a lot so it sticks out more. once i had an old lady GIVE UP HER SEAT FOR ME on the train and i was mortified. i tried to refuse but she insisted i sit down because “pregnant ladies shouldn’t be standing on the train”.

ugh someone asked me once too, i was mortified. Apparently it happens to a lot of people though, even several of my slimmer friends.
