"When Are You Due?"

This is the other thing I've been percolating over posting - I've had two people in less than a week as me when I'm due. I don't even know these people, and they're brave enought to ask me. Just some random customers at work. Gulp, that's a blow to the self esteem!

So this picture doesn't really do justice to what I normally look like, but it gives you the general idea. After the last comment, I just wanted to go home and cry. You can only take so much abuse before you break....


I know I don't have the body of a super model (or even a full-figured model), but give me a break!

I would just like so say a big THANK YOU to my friend Bethany, for asking me other day if I'd lost weight. I hadn't since she'd seen me last, but it made me feel good all the same. At least someone I know, who doesn't see me that often, didn't think I was pregnant, and she thought I had lost some weight, too. Thanks, Bethany! I was complemented in between the two queries about my due date, so it helped make it better.



So FYI for all you bloggers and blog stalkers out there, NO I AM NOT PREGNANT!

I'm sorry people are so lame! I was one of the lame folks once...
I remember working with a woman who was pregnant and I asked her when she was finally going to have that baby and she said, "Um, I did a few weeks ago." HOLY CRAP. I could have crawled in a hole and died! Our shifts were really weird at the hospital, so I didn't even realize she had been out! EEEK!
I NEVER NEVER NEVER ask women anything like that anymore.
Not that my story makes you feel any better. I'm sorry again. I have a coworker who's 60 in a week and people in our building ask her that occasionally. Just Silly.

My niece "dared" me to start a blog during thanksgiving break and I just got started.

YOU LOOK GREAT!!!

That is horrible! People are so rude! I knew a woman who was constantly asked that too, and it turned out that she actually had a tumor. I bet people felt really stupid when they found out. I felt awful for her. I'm sorry you went home and cried. *hugs*

My baby was born over a year ago, and I am only 10 lbs over my then-thin weight. But people ask me OFTEN when I am due. What was more annoying was when my daughter's teacher, when I said I am not pregnant, said "really? I was sure you were pregnant. Absolutely sure!" Ok, already! I get it!
