    I Was So Embaressed!!!!!!!

    I took my daughter to the allergist yesterday.. while the very "just about due nurse" was checking her out, I mentionned that my kid had just gone over the flu. The nurse then told me that she really didn't want to catch it so i replied that I didn't blame her specially that she was pregnant.. she just stared at me and said 'what did you say"? so.. I repeated it,"well, specially that you're pregnant".. she then replied, "I'm not".. and she had that evil look in her eyes..
    I thought the walls were caving in on me, hopefully I was wearing a nike cap, I kept bringing the visor down to my eyes so we wouldn't have to make eye contact again. I swear, I just about died and I swear she had such skinny legs and arms only her stomach was sticking out like she was about due.. I will NEVER say this again!!!!

    I can honestly say that you only ever make this mistake once.

    Relax. Have some chocolate covered cherries and go to your happy place.

    Never good to make assumptions, tho.... My uncle had a medical condition(and diet) that caused him to have a huge pot belly, but he was otherwise pretty skinny.

    Been there, done that.

    The best one was by a friend of mine. We walked onto the subway followed by this woman who looked pregnant, was even doing the rubbing the stomach thing. All of the seats were taken and once again everyone was doing the stare at the floor/paper/whatever to avoid getting up. She points out the woman and curses them all as lazy, greedy, stupid scum. Just as someone stands up the woman pipes up that she's not pregnant. My friend was so embaressed that we got off at the next stop and took a taxi.

    I wouldn't be too worried about it if I were you. You weren't the first person to make that mistake with this woman, and you wont be the last. If she should be giving anything an evil look, it should be those twinkies she keeps shoving down her mouth.

    We' all go through that once....or at least "almost" go through it.

    I was very lucky to catch myself and not quite go through with it. About 10 years ago my brother got engaged to the girl he'd been living with for a year or two. The three of us got together just ahead of Christmas to do some shopping.

    All day long I kept looking at Mary thinking she looked pregnant (very pregnant) and at least 20 times I almost asked "when is the baby due?".

    I'm so glad I held myself back because she wasn't at all. Though I technically didn't do it, I came so close to it I feel like I got the "hard" lesson. After that, I will NEVER, EVER, EVER ask a woman about her pregnancy until she says something in conversation about it so I know its true.

    I doubt this will be the last time in your life that you'll ever feel like you could spit toenails for a week, but consider that you might have caused someone who could use some exercise to re-examine her lifestyle. You might have actually done her a favor.

    There's still the chance, as someone here said, that it was a medical condition that you could know nothing about (a tumor, maybe?). Embarrassing someone by assuming she's pregnant isn't always doing her a favor, in my opinion.

    Ouch!

    I've had similar situations, only in reverse. The lovely Mrs. MMACH went prematurely gray. She had a full head of gray hair at 27 yrs. old, and until I was about 30, I looked like I was 16, (having kids has aged me, lately).

    Anyway, I was 23 and had a doctor's appt. The nurse was taking my blood pressure when my wife came out of the restroom. The nurse glanced over and said, "Are you the proud mamma?"
    My wife paused for a second and said, "No, I'm the younger WIFE."
    ...
    ...
    ...
    The nurse didn't say another word. She turned beet-red, finished taking my vitals and left the room. In the 3 years I went to that doctor, whenever the nurse saw me coming, she would make herself very scarce.

    Since then, my wife has been mistaken for my mom on three other occations.
    That's gonna leave a mark.

    Ha. At least you could run away and never go back. I made the same mistakes years ago when a woman I hadn't seen for a while came into a room. She was the new boss for my boss. I tried to say something pleasant and make her feel welcome. I noticed she had on what I thought were maternity closthes and I asked when she was expecting. She said "I'm not." I don't know which was the most apparent reaction among those present - her big bulging eyes or my red face. Ever try apologizing when all that comes out is stuttering? I had to live with this embarrassment just about every day for a couple years.

    Here's the rule:

    Never, EVER, ask a woman if she is pregnant, or imply that a woman is pregnant, unless you can see an actual baby coming out of her at that moment, in which case the question will be moot in a few minutes anyway.
