Did anyone ever have a stranger ask how far along you were...and

I've heard stories about moms getting asked how far along they are and they respond with "I'm not pregnant...." and the look on the persons face is priceless. Anyone ever do that? Hehe.

I have never done that. But I have been asked when pregnant how many babies I am carrying. When I said only one the woman asked ,"Are you sure?" in a shocked voice. Apparently she thought I was big enough I should be carrying twins at the very least and perhaps even triplets. Thanks lady like I didn't already feel huge.

Yes. I did it all the time with my youngest. It was awesome fun! I was pregnant for two years pretty much straight, so with her I looked a lot further along than I "should have". When I was honest, people were rude! You know, the "you sure there aren't two in there?" Comments. So I started saying I wasn't pregnant, and it was so much fun I just couldn't stop! Sometimes I told them the truth after.

I get asked if I'm pregnant all the time. I talk quite openly about how rude people are when they ask me. But now that I am pregnant I feel like my friends want ask me, but they don't want to be rude. It's gonna be a hard 2 months before I actually tell everyone.

ha yeah I did that towards the end because I got so grumpy and tired of strangers talking to me! It was pretty funny though. I'd also make up due dates that were 3 months later than my real one.

I've never bothered to say I'm not, but I have had some rude people argue with me that I must be having twins because there's no way I could be so big with just one. These people I would love to kick.

I would only do that when it was crazy obvious that I was pregnant. Which for me is like 8 months.

And of course, I'd tell them I was teasing.

Yup. Usually in good fun though. I haven't had anyone ask until I was ridiculously obviously pregnant though.

I also like to answer, "What are you having?" with, "A baby."

I don't show for a long time in the beginning, so by the time people can really tell, I'm like 5 months. I've had people ask when I am due and then say "are you sure?" because they don't believe I am that far along. No, I've just been throwing up for the last few months for no reason at all.

After that though I really pop out fast and look like anyone else
