  • I don't say anything if I suspect, but I don't want to offend. I'll strike up a "Mommy" conversation and see if she'll volunteer any information...or if she starts to stroke her belly in the "pregnant" manor during the topic...before I attempt to put a foot in my mouth lol.

  • My mom used to tell me about those comments, she just carried her excess weight that way. I could tell it bothered her but she never let it get her down. She knew it wasn't coming from a bad place when people asked about her 'baby.'

  • I haven't but I was there one day when my sister did. That poor woman looked like she was about to burst into tears and said "I'm not pregnant but don't worry everybody thinks I am". My poor sister was so upset and told the woman she was so sorry and how beautiful she is. I will NEVER make that mistake lol
