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?”
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 DH (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 DH asking if he was responsible for this mama and when DH 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 DH 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
I love that you went along with it..geez lady take a hint tho! Ahh
