This is a question you must never ask unless you KNOW that you KNOW the person is in fact expecting. Why oh why do people blurt out this stupid question when they know better!
I've been asked this ever so delightful question a few times this year. What do you want me to say "No I'm not pregnant I'm just FAT!" Now move over so I can run outta here and get a candy bar! While I'm turning red in the face and embarrassed....it's gotta be more embarrassing for them right? Wrong.
Point and case: While shopping at Buy Buy Baby this weekend looking at booster seat for our (almost 3 year old) I found a few baby clothes on the clearance rack for my expectant sister in law. I grabbed them and then I had to run to the restroom so I handed the clothes to Terence. While I was in the restroom the sales lady asked him if I was expecting....ha ha! He said no, but I bet she wishes she was.
Now, I know we were in a BABY store...but still. Also, I was wearing one of the ever-so-popular Piko shirts. Ahem....yeah I knew it would make me look preggers, but that's okay because atleast it hides my muffin top. I'll continue to wear them because they are soft and comfy and I like them :P
Then I come out and start talking to the lady and she repeats herself AGAIN...."yeah I asked your husband if you were expecting?" Uhhhhmmmm....and what did he say??? DUH. He said no. So why are you asking me again. Do you want to sell a product in your store because right now I just want to run out of here....no nerve whatsoever. Seriously. I. Die.
My point is just don't do it. It makes a woman who may have eaten too many Twinkies Little Debbies (because Twinkies are now extinct) feel like a piece of crap and want to lay on the floor.
