I'm starting to look pregnant enough for strangers to make their infamous comments. (Side note: Praise God for 28 weeks and the third trimester as of Wednesday!) Recently, I had two run-ins on the same day, only a few hours apart. Walking home from the metro, I stopped to let a large delivery truck pass through the four-way stop. The driver waved me to cross the street in front of him and I immediately thought, "What a kind man!" until he hung out his truck window and shouted over and over, "Looks like you're having a XXX! Looks like you're having a XXX!"
People on the street stared at me, adding to my humiliation. But, after throwing one dirty glance back at the obnoxious truck driver, I pressed on toward home and tried to forget the incident.
Later that same day, I stopped by a maternity store to cash in some rewards certificates I earned on my previous shopping trip. I had the same sales woman helping me as before, and she didn't question my pregnancy this time, but she couldn't believe how far along I was. After I told her Brad and I didn't find out the sex because we wanted to be surprised, she said, "Oh, well you look like you're having a XXX." She shared the truck driver's opinion.
I was tempted to turn around and walk out, but I really wanted to use those reward certificates!
It must have been the outfit because I haven't had any incidents since that day.
