The Question

There’s nothing worse than feeling great about yourself for having lost a bit of weight and then having someone stop you and ask if you are pregnant.

I admit I’ve taken seats on the train from people who clearly believed I was pregnant and needed a seat.  But rarely do people come out and ask me if I’m pregnant.  I believe it’s a question you’re not supposed to ask a woman under any circumstances but in my life I’ve felt that people feel like they can say things to me that they can’t say to other people – sometimes that’s a good thing and sometimes it’s a not so good thing.

When I was asked I took it in stride, moved on and did not get nasty.  Just a simple – No.  But the next time someone jumps up and offers me a seat again I will sit.

And just for the record – I have never been pregnant.
