You know the old joke about how you should never insinuate that a woman is pregnant unless you can see a baby emerging from her body? Well, I’m at the point in pregnancy where that apparently no longer applies because people are constantly asking when I’m due. It doesn’t bother me but I’ve heard the question so many times that I’m starting to make up snarky answers I could give instead of my due date. I’ve compiled the best of those answers over at Babble for your reading pleasure.
Oh, and for the record, I’m never tell a person I’m not pregnant if they asked me because my dad once actually asked a non-pregnant woman when she was due and the mortification of getting that wrong lingers to this day, nearly 40 years later. Far better to go with some of the responses in my Babble post, like the one about not knowing a due date because the baby is the result of alien abduction, doncha think?
Stumbled upon your blog today via some pregnancy page on FB. No, I’m not pregnant. My fallopian tubes are in foreclosure and will be repossessed this summer. I photograph preggos from time to time so I like to stay up on top of trending and interesting things to share with them.
Just wanted to drop a few lines to say that I really enjoyed your blog posts that I read today. Keep up the good work.
BTW, I DID ask a non-preggo when she was due once. We were in an elevator at work. That was the longest 7 floor elevator ride of my life.
I was holding a glass of wine at a party and the hosts MOTHER asked me when I was due. I also got asked by my cousin once.
