Immaculate Conception....It's Happened Before!

I finally got around to getting my flu shot today. I know a lot of people don't get them but I personally think that's a bit irresponsible. Of course, I've waited until every office is out of the vaccine so I had to resort to going to the County Health Department. That was a first for me. I had visions of terribly long lines of unhealthy people, but you know what they say about assuming something in life. Yeah, I was the only person there. It was me and four or five nurses who had nothing else to do but stand around gossiping. It was a depressing building but must be a sweet job just standing there gabbing all day. They told me all about some woman in California who just had octupulets (I guess that's what it's called- eight babies).

Anyway, so I go into the room with a nurse and another woman- I think she was either another nurse or an admin person who had nothing else to do. I sit down and lift my sleeve to prepare for my shot. I'm looking away to avoid seeing the needle. If I don't see it, I'm fine. But gosh the nurse is dawdling! Re-reading my paperwork over and over. It seriously only had like five questions on it. But she asks me again if I am allergic to eggs or latex. No I tell her. Are you pregnant? No. Are you sure there is no chance you are pregnant? No, I'm not pregnant. She looks at my paper again (where I checked the box NO that I am not preggers) and looks up to ask me a third and fourth time if I might be preggo. After the last time I sarcastically said, "only if it's immaculate conception!" She looks at me, in all seriousness, and replied that it happened once. To which I replied, "yeah 2000 years ago."

Now I was not in the most beautiful of outfits (jeans and sweater) and I have gained a LOT of weight over the last few years. But I feel certain that I do not look pregnant. Or slutty. Chubby, maybe. Pregnant though, notsomuch. I love though that she felt I looked pregnant, slutty and religious all at the same time. That's a difficult trifecta to pull off, but apparently I do it well. Who knew?!





To answer your question.... This is the dress I picked up at White/Black on Saturday. It was super on sale and hides my pregnancy belly well....I hope! I like stuff that I can dress up or down depending on the accessories and shoes. I think it will be cute with Bonannos in six months after we thaw out up here.

That story is funny. When I got my eyes checked last month they asked me the same thing and I very firmly said, "No". The tech replies, "Oh I love asking that question!" What a freak. Funny though, they never ask that when I see the GYN. hmm..

That dress is so cute! I actually looked at it a few times.

Your story is too funny!! I had an x-ray technician harass me about that once. I just think that they have nothing better to do, and maybe that will get a good story out of asking?!

Kaitlin said...

love the dress, that store has the best clothes.

Your story made me giggle. A couple months ago I had the checker at walmart ask me when I was due, and that I looked glowing. I took the glowing as a compliment, pregnant not so much. ha.

Yeah! They won't show our news people any pics of the lady who had 8 kids! She had...5 boys and 3 girls...i think.

OMG, I go through the same thing all the time...seriously people, if you are going to ask that many times, just hand me the darn pee stick so I can prove it to you once and for all. Believe me, would love ot have a reason to say yes, but notsomuch... ;)
Adorable dress btw....I might have to go scout it out:)

Princess Freckles said...

I looked for the shoes on Talbots.com and didn't find them. You bought them in the store? Thanks for helping me out on this! :)

And that's a great dress! I once had a man ask me when my baby was due. I was wearing a babydoll style black jumper from J.Crew NOY A Pea in the Pod! People can be so clueless sometimes!

Love that dress, too. And I have to say for one BRIEF second I had a de ja vu moment because I saw a lady in the grocery store last night wearing that dress over leggings and she was HUGE pregnant (and not in a good way) and I was thinking she should not be wearing that. But I am sure you look adorable. and I love that dress. And I might just swing into WHBM on my way home and pick one up.

You know, that is precisely the same conversation a friend had a few years ago at her doctor's office, and she came up with the same response as you! Too funny!

The dress is darling, really cute and classic Miss PPC!

Love the dress!! and the story!! I have been there, people are just silly to ask that many times!! The dress is very similar to a dress I tried on at Anne Taylor Loft last week that was not on sale yet, maybe I will go try to find this one instead! Thanks!!

Miss B said...

Cute dress!! If you marked "No" on the form, that should have been enough. How rude.
