"I used to say point blank, "I'm not pregnant, just fat." Every time, they looked horrified and apologized. And I guarantee you they didn't do it again"
That is a great strategy :)
When I was a kid-- I'm talking like 10 years old or so-- my best friend told me I looked pregnant. She did it deliberately to be mean (we fought ALL the time, and I'm sure I said mean things to her too), and I knew it, but twenty years later, it sticks with me. (She also told me at another time that I had a mustache... which was probably true, as I have PCOS, lol.)

It DOES hurt. I know it does. But you know something? It will stop. Seriously, look at my blog title... I know the feeling.
People suck, and there's no way around it. So it's time to get serious with them. When people say that? Call them on it. "Why do you think I'm pregnant?"
Put them on the spot. Don't let them get away with it.
