Today at work we were allowed to wear sports outfits instead of our usual work uniform. I have a certain sports tshirt on that is clearly tight around my pregnant body. Normally I wear our work jacket to cover up my pregnant body. I haven’t witness any rude comments up until today. And I’m sure more will come.
The maintenance guy came to complete the ticket I had submitted a week ago to change out the dead light bulbs. I noticed he kept starring at me. He hasn’t been around our store for a few months so he doesn’t know that I’m expecting. Out of nowhere he asked me, “So are you really bloated or are you actually pregnant?”
I stopped and looked at him and felt very uncomfortable but responded with a smirk and “yeah I’m pregnant” and walked away. As I was walking away he decided to try and ease the tension by responding with, “oh I really like little babies”
I didn’t know what to say after that, so I picked up the company phone and pretended to help a customer over the phone.
I’m 6 months pregnant and actually I do just look like I may have ate to much at the buffet. I feel/look a lot smaller then I should be. But still, that doesn’t mean that you can ask someone if they are FAT or just PREGNANT!
