My story goes that my whole life I've had a Buddha Belly... Which is sometimes considered cute, but often shamed for not being a flat washboard. Translated... I frequently get asked if I'm pregnant or how far along I am by strangers and acquaintances.... Especially before my period when I'm bloated. My usual response, "I not pregnant, just fat." I guess it's my sense of humor trying to make light of the shame and annoyance I feel when this happens.
