…Because we are probably not. Here is some good advice from actress and infertility alumni Nia Vardalos:

“Don’t ask a woman if she is pregnant, unless her water breaks on your flip-flops, a baby arm dangles out of her vagina and she asks you to cut the cord. Then, and only then, may you ask if she is having a baby. Otherwise, shut up.”

    Thanks for sharing this…I had no idea she went through IF. I have posted the article on my facebook wall…

    I think I might love her. Must go watch “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” now. LOL.

    As a fellow IF sister and teacher of preschoolers (yes, killer combination…), both myself and the families I teach have learnt not to ask this one!

    Mmmm… let’s stick to talking about YOUR children!

    ha ha!!!! that was great. A couple years ago a pizza delivery girl asked me if I was having a girl or boy. and I was not pregnant. LOL I laughed at her so hard I couldn’t speak.

    I hate that they ask at the pharmacy when you pick up your fertility drugs. “Hello, idiot, would I be picking this up if I was pregnant? Oh, the ovulation predictor test kit didn’t give it away?” I know they legally have to, but really?

    I love this! I work at a doctor’s office and I have had SEVERAL patients ask when my baby is due… then the “are you sure” response when I tell them nope, not pregnant. I should use this response!
