So haven’t you heard the news?
I am totally pulling off the pregnant look.
What on Earth am I talking about?!?!
The story begins about 2 months ago when I was first asked that very awkward question. I was asked by a cashier at a local party store AKA total stranger. Apparently it was part of some joke he had going on with his buddy before I even walked in the store. Asking the next young girl that walks in if she’s pregnant might not be a very funny joke for some people. Needless to say, I let that one slide.
A few days after the party store incident, I was working at the market. I was extremely tired (just got out of work) and for some reason I was itching/hold my stomach while I was talking to a fellow vendor.
“Are you expecting?”
Doesn’t anybody know that you NEVER ask a girl if she is pregnant? That is the ultimate insult.
“Um, no? Just….itching?…”
Seriously, did I just get asked this again?
“Oh. (awkward silence) Welllll, I LOVE BABIES!”
Okay, twice in one week? This was just weird. I mean, maybe I have gained like 3-5 pounds, big deal! That still doesn’t give anyone the right to ask such daring questions.
FAST FORWARD TO SUNDAY
Waiting on two nice (slightly larger, no offence) ladies at the Farmer’s Market. While explaining the food, one of the ladies interrupted me in mid sentence and said something along the lines of,
Thinking she is talking about her friend, I carry on. They were kind of talking to each other and I didn’t really understand what was being said. Like most people, I hate being interrupted, it’s just rude. I finished what I was explaining and then I started listening again.
“Well, you can tell. She is so small but you can just tell!”
I guess while I was talking they asked me if I was pregnant. Thinking she was talking about somebody else, I just nodded my head and continued on.
“Isn’t that funny, she always knows!”
As they walked away I realised what just happened. I agreed that I was pregnant, and he friend was so surprised because this friend “always knows”.
They were talking about me.
When the boyfriend returned, I told him what happened, he always gets a laugh out of it. Another fellow vendor over heard me talking about it and says,
“Oh my Gosh, I was going to ask the same thing!…”
Really? I am over here complaining and wondering why people are asking me if I am pregnant and you are going to just agree? I guess that’s cool.
It is just me, or is this weird? I don’t usually share random stories like this on the blog but, it is so
funny strange that I couldn’t resist.
Seriously guys, I hate to break out the bikini pictures, but I must prove a point.
Now, I am 99.9% sure that I am NOT pregnant. If I wasn’t so sure, I would be probably be freaking out right now. I obviously had to over analyze this:
Reason why I might look pregnant:
- I have a pretty small butt. I realised this after analyzing myself in the mirror for a while figuring out why people might think I look pregnant.
- Having that small booty, really highlights the gut. Yes guys, I am totally aware of my food baby. I like to eat! But it really isn’t that bad.
- The clothes I wear could pass as maternity. I like loose-fitting tanks and yoga pants, what can I say.
- Every time I have been asked if I was preg-o, I was on my period. Bloated much?
- My final reason for pregnant look is my glow. I have been told before that I apparently “glow”. I don’t really see it but I guess it’s one of those things that come with the vegan life style.
Have you ever been asked if you were pregnant?
