Have people ever asked you if you're pregnant when you're not?

I got an email from my cousin saying congrats on the pregnancy. It's the 2nd time in about 2 years that she's sent something like that to me. But the thing is, I'm not even pregnant, nor am I trying.

What's your story?

  • what happened to me is almost opposite. i was pregnant and saw my cousin and she was like 'damn you're fat, if you want an exercise partner i'll be it'. She felt so bad when she found out i was pregnant.

  • would she know that you aren't? if so is there a chance that she is being mean? i'd call her on it and tell her she will be one of the first to know if you are preggers again but until then zip it!

  • Someone asked when I was due once. I told her March 16th, FOUR YEARS AGO! Her mouth dropped and she turned bright red. LOL poor lady.

  • I do but, they are just being BUTTS!! My husband and I have 5 kids and don't use hormonal BC so, my mom asks all the time if I am pregnant.

  • When I had my 4 month old daughter and 4 year old sister at the park 5 years ago, someone said something like "aw! It's nice you want 2 so close in age" I asked what she was talking about because 4 isn't all that close and she said "aren't you pregnant again?" I'd never med this woman! When I told her no she said she was sorry a dozen times. poor woman felt so bad! i didn't mind being asked, I was still a little big in the belly :-)

  • not me but my mom - she had a hysterectomy after having a tumor the size of a football removed - after going under the knife for that and 2 C-sections and gail stones she did not want to go under the knife again for Reconstructive surgery - her belly looks like she is always pregnant. my brother came up to me and told about how while she was grocery shopping some woman came up to her and asked her when she was due - my mom was like 50 and deeply hurt.

  • Not me but it happened to my sister once. She had taken a birth control shot and gained a lot of weight. Her husband was giving her a hard time and she felt really bad about herself because nothing she did got the weight off. I can't stand when people just make that assumption. I have always gone by the notion that you don't congratulate someone on their "pregnancy" or ask when they are due until they tell you themselves they are pregnant.
