ARRRGH! I am not huge, I’m a size 10, but yes, I have a small belly after 2 babies. I have been asked if I am pregnant literally more times than I can count since my second child and I just can’t develop a thick skin regarding this.
Conversation in the tea room today:
“I assume your ‘cooking’ again?”
“I assume youv’e got one cooking again”
“um, no. I guess I’veput on weight.”
“Hard to keep it off after kids, isn’t it?”
hold back tears until back in office.
EXXXXXXXXCUUUUUUUSE ME. In otherwords, you look like you have a baby growing in your tummy.
That is not okay to say. and it doesn’t get easier to hear.
I could just cry. Struggling to come to terms with post child body and this just doesn’t help.July 8, 2016 at 10:14 am #6173NicoleSParticipant
I feel your pain 🙁 I had my first child 4 years ago. I wouldn’t call myself hugely fat, definitely don’t look pregnant. But nine seperate people over the last two years have either asked me if i was pregnant or assumed i was pregnant. What the actual fuck?? I always laugh it off and say ‘no,i’m just fat’ They all look like they want to crawl in a hole and die after opening their mouths. Some have even asked ‘are you sure?’ after i say no..But i’m really so upset on the inside i just want to go home an cry. I really don’t get it. At least two of the women who asked me have a decent amount of facial hair too, perhaps i should ask them if they were men??
So not cool 🙁
