…I am not pregnant.
Out of our about 40-50 staff members at work, 9 (rumored 10) ladies are pregnant. There is definitely something in the water. It seems like there is another big announcement every week. While I’m totally excited for lots of these ladies, I’m not joining them (yet). I’d love more than anything to be a mom, and can’t wait to see what God has in store for me. But, I know that is in His hands and out of mine.
With that said, I have had enough of the assumptions. Doesn’t everyone know the assumption rule??? You make an ass out of you and me!!
A. Just because my best friend is pregnant, doesn’t mean I am. AND-it doesn’t mean you need to ask her if and when I’m having babies. She’s not going to divulge my personal information to the entire staff. Also, when she and I are standing together, don’t think I don’t see your eyes scan my mid section and then look back up at me. You may think you’re being nonchalant, but you’re not!
B. It’s not appropriate to walk to to someone and rub their belly, while at the same time asking when a baby is coming. Yes, that is what happened to me yesterday at a baby shower. I wish you could have seen the look on my face. It wasn’t even someone I knew very well! Can you believe that? The nerve.
C. Last straw: Coworker: So Leah, I heard a congratulations is in order. Me: Oh really? Coworker: Yes, so don’t take this the wrong way, but are you pregnant?
Don’t take this the wrong way? What way would you like me to take it? Me: No, I received a $500 grant that I wrote for my classroom.
I’d also like to state that as far as I know and from what the scale shows I haven’t gained any weight. But I’m beginning to think maybe the scale is lying to me and I need to buy new winter clothes.
Has this ever happened to any of you??? Craziness, I tell you.0 Did you like this post?
