No! I’m Not!

No, I’m not pregnant! Nor (I hope) do I look pregnant. Nor do I feel pregnant. Nor do I want to be pregnant.

Yesterday was an extremely frustrating day for me. Not only did a co-worker annoyingly ask me if I was pregnant, only for me to respond no, but she continuously asked me “are you sure?” and “have you checked”!! Are you kidding me?! I just walked away in shock after that – with her yelling down the hall to let her know if I was. Honestly!

Only to make matters worse, I get to my “girly” doctor appointment yesterday and upon arriving the nurse is going over my charts and she says “Are you still on Zofran?” Ummm….no because that was for nausea during my 1st trimester – a year ago! Then she asks me if I’m still taking Duet, my prenatal vitamins!! At this point, I’m a bit irritated and I point blank told her I was not pregnant any longer (like as of 10 1/2 months ago!). But I bite my tongue because I think she is new to the practice and I don’t want to be rude. She must have read my chart wrong.

Only then, when I’m brought to my exam room, there is the tape measure and the heartbeat monitor laying out all waiting for me. I want to scream at this point that I am not there for a prenatal checkup. But seeing as how I don’t want to alarm any other patients, I contain myself. At least my doctor (who delivered my baby) didn’t ask me if I was pregnant. Because then I may truly have lost it.

Looking back, it’s kind of funny now. But when you start a new diet the day before, the last thing you want people asking you is if you are pregnant.

  1. Hahaha, it’s b/c of the mac n cheese that Tim fed you! Seriously, you don’t look pregnant and I haven’t witnessed any hormonal fits lately. And you know my opinion on that coworker.

  2. OMG TOO FUNNY. WELL NOT FUNNY BUT KIND OF. THAT IS THE WORST IF PEOPLE ASK YOU THAT WHEN YOU ARE NOT. I DO AGREE WITH NELLIE AND YOU DON’T LOOK IT. ON THE OTHER HAND I HAVE SEEN SOME MOOD CHANGES BUT I THINK THAT IS FROM THE REDUCED CALORIE INTAKE AND ALL THAT HEALTHY FOOD. GINA AND I ARE STARTING OUR OWN BET OF SORTS NEXT WEEK. YAY WE’LL ALL HAVE TO GO TO THE BEACH THIS SUMMER TO CELEBRATE OUR LOSSES. YES NELLIE, YOU TOO.

  3. You’re right…it’s funny looking back, but in the heat of it, I would have lost it, too! It’s sort of like the man that asked me if I had eaten a lot lately (when I was 9 months preg) and somehow contained myself!

    If it wouldn’t have happened, you wouldn’t have had a funny story to share with us today.

    And that co-worker? She sucks! I’m guessing she’s never had a kid before or she would know what a jerk she was being!

  4. That’s priceless. And, damn rude people implying you look pg when you are dieting. Damn them!!

  5. How annoying,DH and i were just talking about this today and how we would never ask anyone if they were pregnant even at 9 months (just incase)

  6. Oh, my. People have done that to me before, too :( But it is funny that all that happened in one day!!!! :)

  7. That is wrong! Have people lost there damn minds? Even if you were and didn’t want to tell anyone, get the hint. GEesh!

  8. I think you look great! Keep working hard girl! Are you still running?
