It can be the most awkward thing in the world to ask a woman if she is pregnant, especially if it turns out she is not. Maybe you are just curious and want to know, or maybe you’re trying to decide if you should give up your seat on the bus. Whatever the reason, there are some common indications of pregnancy that can help you determine if she is pregnant before asking so that you can prevent this awkward moment from happening. In general, however, it's best not to assume someone is pregnant. Avoid directly asking someone if they are pregnant and instead wait until they bring it up.
