i got that from a number of work colleagues - when i got past the 12 week mark and had been bursting to tell them all at least 3 or 4 said yeah we thought you were! i think a lot of women say it when really they have no clue - i have never been told someone was pg and thought yeah i had been thinking that alright, unless they were say 16-18 weeks or something!

So far no one had guessed before we told them. Haven't been sick and no one knew we were trying, especially seeing as its so soon after wedding. I haven't told anyone in work except the boss, so we'll see how it goes down when I break the news.

I don't think people guessed about me - my mom hadn't a clue and she is usually pretty clued in to things. But then I told them my parents at 10 weeks and friends at 12 so it wasn't like I was big. As for guessing about other people - as soon as any of my sporty friends run a bit slower, don't go to a race they should be at or enter a shorter race then everyone will make a guess..... Quite a few times I've heard from someone, "oh XYZ was running slowing at the weekend, I bet she's pregnant" and a few weeks later guess what we hear. One of the girls was amazed everyone had guessed but she just laughed at it and said that she hadn't realised how much slower she was running. It's just a bit of a game really and it doesn't matter if people guess - the main thing is that the baby is ok.
