Do you know someone who is always thinking everyone is pregnant?

My MIL thought i was because I ate sourcream on my tacos. I told her I get them like that at Taco Bell. To me it's so normal. I wanted a chef salad one day so she asked if I was. I told her I was on the Depo and her response was "that don't mean anything." I said "yeah it really does." She is in her 60's and is real old fashioned and nieve. Everytime something happens, she thinks pregnancy is the diagnosis.

  • How annoying! I hate when ppl dream of a baby n they think it's a pregnancy. Did u know a baby in a dream signifies the beginning of something new, like a new job, a new house, etc

  • She is right, the depo doesn't mean anything - nothing is 100% protective.. unless of course you don't have sex.

  • Well, being on depo doesn't mean pregnancy is an absolute no... However, your mil does sound a bit naive. Next time, just tell her that when and if you do become pregnant, you will let her know, until then please stop assuming.

  • I have the opposite (kind of) with MIL wishing we were pregnant and nagging us nonstop to pass on the family name to a boy!

  • My MIL is like that, too... Before I got pregnant with our twins, every little oddness I exhibited just HAD to be a pregnancy symptom. I've always eaten parmesan cheese and jelly on pizza slices. That went over extremely well here.

    She's always accusing someone of being pregnant, though. She's also one of those who has "dreams" and, you know... they're ALWAYS 100% right. Lol.

  • I used to work with a woman like that. She would go around telling everyone that I was pregnant, and I wasn't. then she gave me two names of other woman at work that supposedly told her that I was.
    I asked them, and they had no idea what I was talking about!

    some people do that.
