excuse me, are you calling me fat?

Just last month I posted a picture holding my friend’s twins, who are now 1. They total about 22 lbs each. 44 lbs isn’t easy for me to manage. The way I was holding them made my stomach go forward. Two incredibly unaware people decided it would be okay to message me and ask when I was due.
Yes. You read that right. They didn’t ask if I was pregnant. Which would be just as rude. They asked when I was due. They were SO sure that I was pregnant. One has been a long time friend of mine although we are not super close anymore. I could see how she would be excited for me, if that is what she thought she saw. The other one, an acquaintance, was just being nosy.
Now I don’t know about you, but my mama didn’t raise me like that. She always said it doesn’t matter if a woman appears to be 9 months pregnant. YOU NEVER ASK HER.
How could these people be so sure that I was pregnant that they would ask when I was due? I weight 112 lbs on my “heavy” days. What do they think they even saw in the picture? Believe me I am farrrrr from perfect, but one thing I don’t have is a big stomach.
Of all weeks to say something like that to me, this wasn’t it. I found out that Tuesday that my 4th IVF attempt failed, and on that Saturday was asked when I was due. Good timing ladies, good timing.
I decided this could be a good learning experience. I explained that no, I wasn’t pregnant and that she should never ever ever ask someone that because she has no idea what someone could be going through. Let’s just hope she never does that again.
