So, umm, this just happened: 
A woman at work asked if I was pregnant! 

That has never happened before; I really need to get started on a weight-loss plan and fast! She didn't say it in a mean way, and she is British so she actually asked, "Oh, are you all spronged?" Which she then clarified meant pregnant, I think it is a more affectionate British version of 'knocked up'. When I told her I wasn't, she back tracked a bit saying how great I look and that she was just thinking it would be wonderful for me if I was... I have only met her a few times, so she obviously doesn't know me well. It is so surreal; I have never been asked that before by a borderline stranger. I don't know what to think.

I feel your embarrassment! This was my conversation with the Zellers checkout twit last night:
(Checking out with baby stuff including sleepers, new bottles, breast pads, etc.)
Zeller's girl: Is this a gift or for you?
Me: Oh it's for us
Zeller's girl: Exciting! Do you know what you're having?
Me: I had a baby over two months ago...
Zeller's girl: Oh, I just meant..

Don't feel bad, it happens to everyone! People need to think before they speak!
Love, T
