Week 1 Bumpdate | The time I got asked if I was pregnant
Is there something you're not telling me friends? Like the fact I have prominent beer belly or food baby of some sorts? I'd like to think that if you were my real friends you would have told me I was showing by now. My feelings are hurt.
Let's talk about that time I got asked if I was pregnant. Oh wait that was Tuesday. FML.
I have to say she was polite about it, if there even is a way to be polite about it.
She started it with the line "I'm fat but..." I think to make me feel better. Like that she wasn't calling me fat, just pregnant?
Still not sure. She also preempted the whole conversation "with the danger of being really rude here," so obviously she knew it was a taboo topic.
Here's the thing. Was I mortified? YES. Do I blame the hoodie with the belly pockets I was wearing? YES. Am I now SCARED SHITLESS that I might actually be pregnant...???
As much as I'd like to tell you it was just some completely horrid and rude lady calling me fat as I let it all hang out at the dog park, it was more than that.
Here are the details. She apparently was not asking due to the belly. After the first initial blow of the question she said it was because of a "glow" I had.
At this point I of course thought she was just covering her ass for calling a chubby girl pregnant who wasn't really pregnant.
Then she goes on to tell me she could tell her daughter-in-law was pregnant a month before she told anyone.
That's when panic set in.
You see the new birth control (I've mentioned) has kind of stopped the period flow. Or so I thought. I haven't had that reassuring monthly visit in a while which I knew was a side affect of the new implant.
That, or maybe I'm just pregnant.
How soon is too soon to panic? When a stranger calls you fat? I mean am I overreacting here?
Let me know if I should be buying a pee stick would ya?
