A Word of Advice

Never, ever, ever, ever, ever ask a coworker how her baby is unless you are 100,000,000,000% sure she is pregnant.

I just learned that the hard way.

You did not. Tell me you're lying.

I wish I could, sister.
Sadly, I cannot.

you would be safest not to ask until you see an actual head coming out....

Hmmm ... I kind of hope that never happens, Anonymous.

I did that 27 years ago when I was pregnant with Tim. I asked the checkout lady at Target when her baby was due. She looked at me and said "I don't have a baby". Gulp. Bet she still hates me. I've NEVER asked that question again unless someone tells me their pregnant.

Last year I went to a baby shower for a friend. I didn't know the girl I was sitting next to but I could have sworn that my friend told me that she was having twins. Turns out she HAD twins about 1 1/2 years prior to me asking when she was due. Agghh! I had to sit by her for another two hours feeling like a complete moron.

No way...how did you not already know not to ask that? I usually ask around and see if others know for sure or look at the stomach a few times in conversation and see if they offer the news. I agree with Amber you should be letting co-workers know who this was...not that we'll ask anyone now!
