Just been asked by the girl on the Clinique counter when my baby is due.

Im not PG.

5'6 and size 12

And she didnt have the decency to look mortified Angry

Although it was quite hard to tell given the amount of slap she was wearing

I don't ask unless it is mentioned just incase.

I have had it done to me. Turns out I was pregnant, I just didn't know yet!

Maybe you are really glowing today [clutches straws]. It's probably just your top or coat. I definitely have bumpy clothes. She should have been embarrassed though!

I have raging PMT and really spotty skin, so deffo not glowing Sad

Maybe I need to improve my posture?

I went to the hairdressers recently and while chatting told the stylist I was on maternity leave. She asked when I was due - dd is 6 months old!!! Clearly the baby weight hasn't come off yet! Very rude to ask out of the blue unless it's very obvious.

I've been asked, I always say its a lager baby and smile. But she shouldn't have asked, or at least apologised.

Ooh she should at least have the decency to grovel.

I got asked by a pharmacist yesterday. DS2 is 8 months old and I'm about a size 10. Didn't look mortified either and quite obviously stared at my belly afterwards, as if to say "some way to go then" Grr. Hmm
