TexasBride2Be:  This reminds me of a woman who worked in another department at my old job and for the longest time I thought she was like 6 months pregnant but 2 years later she still looked 6 months pregnant. That is the exact reason I never say anything even if I’m certain.

I learned my lesson the hard way! When i was a teenager, a former co-worker was wearing an empire waist top and i said “xxx are you pregnant?”. she said “no, i cant have kids” in her tiny little voice. Never in my life will i ever ask someone if they’re pregnant! 

I was horrified!!! She went on to explain to me that she couldnt due to the multiple heart surgeries and ongoing heart issues she had which i was aware of. She was very sweet about it but OMG i still cringe when i think of it to this day.

When she asked “Boy or girl?” you should’ve responded with: “I’m a girl, thanks. I thought this dress woulda given it away *shrug* …. Oh, I’m sorry, were you implying something else with that question?”

echomomm:  Oh my gosh, what is wrong with people!?!? Do they think your belly instantly, magically goes flat the second the baby comes out? I would’ve said, I was due last month and here he/she is! Duh.

Well, on the opposite end, I liked to freak people out occasionally when I was obviously very pregnant. They’d say congrats and I’d say, for what? Or they’d ask when I was due and I’d say, due for what? I’d always say just kidding right away but the looks on their faces was priceless.

A guy I used to work with said that he will never ask a woman if she is pregnant, not make any comments implying that she is. I guess he got burned doing so before and learned his lesson! Maybe the lady at the check out learned her lesson?

ugh had this happen to me a few times but one time totally stands out:

I was backstage w my Darling Husband (then BF) and a member of the band he was working for kept making comments about my “glow” and this other stuff and I could tell he was alluding to me being pregnant but I played it cool. Finally he came out and said something to Darling Husband asking if he was responsible for this mama and when Darling Husband got all confused and was like eh I mean she is my Girlfriend and the guy started lecturing him about how it takes two and he needs to man up etc… I finally stepped in and was like sorry but I think you misunderstand but I am NOT pregnant.  I was really nice about it and laughed it off and all (even though I wanted to just cry) bc Darling Husband was working and this was a big well known band and I didnt want to get him in any trouble etc but the guy STILL wouldn’t give it up and was hounding me for like 20 more minutes saying well I know and you better go get a pregnany test (No I am definitely sure but thank you) and well did you just have a baby? (no, I don’t have any children) I have 5 kids and I know what a pregnant woman looks like (um ok?) etc till finally I just left cause I couldn’t take it any more
