So I went swimming at my local gym yesterday, and as I got into one of the swimming lanes, the lady who was sharing it with me stopped me and said, "Are you pregnant?" I didn't have chance to reply before she carried on to elaborate, "It's just that I've noticed you in the gym and noticed you'd been putting on weight!" Now, I'm not easily offended, but I was a bit taken aback. I smiled back, and kind of laughed it off and said, "Yes I am. Why does it look like I'm getting fatter?" I think it was at this point she realised what she had said and then said, "No, I meant I noticed you were putting on weight, but it's all going on one place. Not on your arms and legs!" Anyway, I then had half an hour of repeatedly swimming past her and didn't know where to look. I knew she hadn't meant to sound insulting, so when she left I gave her a kind smile, but I would never ever have the guts to just come out and say that to someone. Imagine if I hadn't been pregnant! Has anyone else had to experience anything like this? I'm not quite 16 weeks yet with my first baby, so it's nice that people now think I'm pregnant and not just fat at least!
