One day in October 2013, I wait for my husband to get ready for getting off work near the entrance of the company. One of the female coworkers comes up to me. She touches my belly and asks:
“Are you pregnant?”
I: “No. I’ve been starting to work out and I’ve gained some pounds in the process.”
Later that evening, I skype with my mom. My mother asks:
“Is another grandchild on its way?”
Why is everyone asking if I’m pregnant? After I announce that there isn’t, I tell her how my coworker touched my belly, and we both agree that it’s normal to have a little belly at the end of the day.
Has anyone ever asked you a similar question? I’d love to read your comments.
