You are like a baby bump spy.
Anytime you are with friends, you lurk around for any suspicious looking baby bumps or extra fat around their belly. You don’t know why you feel so compelled to look at someones belly, as it tortures you a bit, but your eyes always seem to glance quickly in the belly direction. It’s kind of like when your husband checks out a girl – he looks quickly and then diverts his eyes (although in that case, it’s definitely not torturing him).
Every time you see a group of friends, you feel compelled to check out their bellies. Who is pregnant? Who do you think is pregnant and who is not telling yet? It’s like you are trying to mentally prepare yourself for when they make the big announcement. “I’m pregnant” Your friend will later say with glee. “Oh I already knew.” You boast. It’s kind of like you’re saying ‘I already knew months ago so I’m okay with it now.’ But truthfully, you think that your friends might be checking out your belly too. In your case, you might pretend that you are expecting by purposely wearing a larger shirt, scratching your belly from time to time and refusing any alcohol. If they are too shy to ask you if you are pregnant, are you really going to correct them? If they do ask, you will tell them the truth but if they don’t, maybe you WILL be pregnant the next time you see them so it won’t be a lie.
Your mind works in mysterious ways.
