Asking If a Woman is Pregnant When She Isn't

Has Anyone Ever Falsely Assumed You Were Pregnant?

Is she or isn't she? Some people have a hard time telling the difference between a woman who is pregnant and someone who is wearing loose clothing or has a packed on a couple of pounds so they go ahead and assume she's expecting. This can be a sticky situation if the lady is not since she may take the inquiry as an insult. Has this ever happened to you?

no, but after i eat a big meal i can stick my belly out and it kind of looks like i'm preggers. This is a funny practical joke for me (I'm not sure if my dad was as amused as I was)

It's happened to me - THREE times over the span of several years. It's just the way I'm built - I was maybe 120 lbs at 5'7" the first two times. Working out never seems to help, no matter what I try - it sucks but I've just had to learn how to dress to minimize my belly. It's one of the reasons I love being pregnant: I've never had more body confidence in my life! That said, God forbid someone ask a woman who is 'obviously' pregnant in the case she's just miscarried - that's the biggest reason I'd never assume.

Oh...so many times...4 to be exact! In my opinion they were all ridiculous! First two times I was quite thin for a long time...I was about 5'5" and around 120ish. Then I gained some weight..nothing outrageous. I think at max I weighed 130...about a size 6 and two different people asked me. Someone that I saw everyday at our office cafe and someone that I had seen only a few times at a local retail store. THEN, there are three drs at my pediatrician's office. My son's dr was on vacation so we went in to see one of the other drs. My son was 3 months old. And he asked me when my due date was! REALLY?! You're a dr. I obviously had a baby 3 months ago. LOSER! Then when I came back to work (at 12 weeks) a co-worker asked when I was going to have my baby! Sometimes people are seriously stupid. I know I was carrying some baby weight and I do gain in my midsection but seriously?!

Yes...there was a man at a grocery store and he helped me with my groceries. I was grateful anyway, but I did throw that dress away.
