    I got asked when I was due even before I fell pregnant because I'm a bigger girl. Rather than get offended, I'd say in 3 months and then walk off.
    I didn't want to have the awkwardness of saying "I'm not pregnant" then feeling bad for making them feel bad for saying something quite innocent.
    At least now though, if and when someone asks, I can say "Due in May" :D

    I had my first stranger ask me about a week ago! And when I told work, a couple of them said they already could tell. One said she could tell by my face and eyes, although she couldnt really explain it, and the other said 'us more mature ladies can always tell'. All three guessers were in their 60's, so maybe more mature ladies can tell quicker...xx

    I was asked for the first time a week ago :) It was really nice, I asked her what she meant because she said "How far away are you?" so was a bit confusing as it was...I wasn't really thinking about my tummy :lol: Some people don't notice though, it depends on what I'm wearing really! x

    The same thing happened to me, but luckily he started going on about his pregnant daughter so I didn't have to lie. I went straight on a diet after that :blush:

    Now I'm so thrilled to be able to say that there actually is a baby growing in my belly, and that it's not just fat!

    A woman in a store asked my wife when she was due at 7-8 weeks...she isn't showing at all...still...though it was in a baby clothing store...but we didn't buy anything we were just looking at stuff. She turned to me and asked if she was getting fat. I laughed...she's tiny!

    I'm only 19 weeks, and I've already been asked when I'm due.

    Maybe I should lay off the holiday food....
