A Simple Way To Know When It's OK To Ask A Woman If She's Pregnant

One mom says there are two scenarios in which this question is appropriate.

Mom Carrie Saum was fed up with people assuming her "squishy" belly was a "baby bump," so she made a helpful video and flowchart to let people know when it's OK to ask a woman if she's pregnant.

According to Saum, there are only two scenarios when it's appropriate: If she tells you she's pregnant and you respond, "Really? What? You're pregnant?" or if you're in the room where she is giving birth and see the baby crowning or witness the C-section taking place.

"The bottom line here is that women's bodies are not your business," the mom explains, adding, "If a woman wants you to know, she'll tell you."
