Are you pregnant?
What, do you suppose, made her ask such a question?
A. I'm looking rather large, like I'm carrying a watermelon.
B. I have been coping with stress with a bit too much food.
C. I look super tired.
D. I was working frompy looking clothes.
I have thought, from time to time, of telling people that I haven't been dealing well or healthily with stress, when asked whether I'm pregnant. . .
When deciding to go out grocery shopping tonight, I had already changed out of my "going out" clothes; so I was no longer in a maternity top. I was just wearing one of my looser fitting T-shirts.
Her answer, when I asked what gave away my pregnancy, was that I just look so tired.
I won't dispute that. That does reflect reality accurately. One of my friends with 11 month old twins said she had, at best, two good weeks in her entire pregnancy. I can believe it. So far, in my second trimester, that alleged burst of energy (nesting) has not come; I'm not holding my breath for it to arrive.
