Have you ever asked a woman when she was due and she wasn't even pregnant?

    I have never done that, but I was with a friend who did. We were at the gym, and there was a woman we saw there walking on the treadmill quite often. She was slim except for a pronounced belly, and truthfully, there was no doubt in my mind she was pregnant. But my friend asked when her baby was due, and she said "I'm not pregnant, everybody thinks that, but I'm not," then my friend could not leave bad enough alone, so she said "well that's OK, that happened to me after I had my baby" how old is your baby? By that time the woman was pretty annoyed, she said emphatically, "I don't have any kids!"

    yes i have and i felt terrible for doing it. i thought she looked pregnant but she wasn't so being the genius that i am i asked her if she had just had a baby and she said she has never been pregnant. for some reason she didn't want to talk to me anymore.

    No, but I gave up my seat on the tube for a lady I thought was pregnant, she was just very overweight...

    I don't think she minded though, at least she got to sit down!

    omg, I had.  I bumped into two women I used to work with in the subway.  I was so excited to see them again.  One of them looked pregnant, so I asked when the baby was due.  She was not pregnant, just gained some weight.  I will never forget the look on her face and on her friend's face.  They both probably wanted to kill me, which was ok by me.  I was so embarrassed, I wanted to die right there and then anyway.  But I didnt, so I just rushed off the subway on the next stop.  No, it wasn't my stop.

    Yes, and I felt really terrible about it.  The woman in question was a colleague who had put on a little weight around the middle due to comfort eating after a long-term relationship ended.  She was very thin, so the extra weight really stood out.  i will never raise the subject of pregnancy again unless someone mentions it to me first.
