Years ago, I was with my dad at a banquet. We were talking to a mom of one of my friends. I was thoroughly enjoying the conversation until my dad asked a question that one should never ask a woman unless he is already aware of her condition. He said, “When are you due? I didn’t know you were expecting!”
My friend’s mom kindly replied, “I’m not.”

Ouch. I’ve had people think I was preggers a few times. Not fun but I was able to laugh at their discomfort!
If you’ve got stories, Kate, here’s the place to get them off your chest once and for all. Don’t hold out on us!
I AM expecting, but sometimes I pretend I’m not for a minute, just to watch inquisitive strangers squirm! Pregnancy makes me mean.
