I am not joking when I advise all humans: never, ever, ever ask a person if they are pregnant. Never. Like, if a person wants you to know that they are pregnant, they will tell you. I promise they will. If they have not told you, they may be pregnant but they may not be ready to tell anyone, or they may not be keeping it, or they may not have decided how they feel about it yet. Or they may just not like you enough to give you information about the contents of their uterus. Regardless of the reason, never. Ever. Ask. Ever. This arguably includes healthcare professionals, as if there is any adult in the world that manages to get to the x-ray portion of a medical exam without bringing up their pregnancy. Also, I am a sexually active adult female in reasonably good health: I literally could be pregnant at any moment and not know it. Hell, my period just started, but I had sex last night, so WHO KNOWS. Don’t ask. Ever.
