Have you ever had this question before? I have, about mmm 20 times... As soon as I met my hubby, even when going out, people would say, uuuu you are getting a bit fat *wink* *wink* The thing was I was just getting fat as the meds I were on at the time had that effect Then when I made the mistake of queuing in the special checkout where people that are handicapped or pregnant get priority, I was standing behind 4 people with no problem... and the checkout girl shouted over them and they all turned to look as she said "Are you pregnant", as red as a beetroot I said no... When we got married 3 years ago, even though we had been together for ages and living together for 2 to 3 years, people would automatically assume I was going to get pregnant, and ask that ever so annoying question... (annoying when you are not and not even TTC) Now I have a healthy weight, even though I want to lose a bit more, and have lost over 3 stone, I have a bmi of about 24 and would like 22 to 23 (vanity as well going on here), but EVEN now, because the bit of weight I have ALWAYS IS ON MY TUM and my legs are long and slim like my arms, people still ask the question. I thought I would get away from that when I lost weight... A couple of days ago I was wearing a loose dress, and a workmate said "You're not pregnant are you?" "No" I said, "I am just FAT"
