How many times has Beyoncé been pregnant with baby No. 2 now?

Sarah grew up in Monterey, CA and now lives in Los Angeles. When she's not writing, you can find her enjoying a good book, fine wine, sunflowers and long walks on the beach.

Rumor has it Beyoncé is preggo, but this ain't the first time the gossip's circulated

Poor Beyoncé! The woman can't even go out for a meal without pregnancy rumors abounding. Since 2013, she's been pregnant with baby No. 2 approximately five times, and this week it just became No. 6.

Beyoncé and Jay Z dined at a New York eatery recently, and she was photographed holding her purse in front of her stomach as they left the restaurant.

Of course, this simple action on her part gave way to "pregnancy shocker" headlines on the internet. But is this time different? Is Beyoncé pregnant? Probably not. Pretty sure if she really was, she'd let us know on her own accord, not through a paparazzi photo.

Just look at all the other times she was supposedly pregnant.

In spring of 2013, pregnancy rumors ran rampant, but both Jay Z and Beyoncé vehemently denied them.

"I can't stop the rumors from starting, and I can't really change peoples minds who believe them, all I can do is sit back and laugh at these low life people who have nothing better to do than talk about me," Beyoncé wrote in a now-removed Instagram post.

In September 2014, she posted a sexy picture of herself wearing a "Carter" jersey with the number four on it, so naturally speculation began running wild that she was hinting that the fourth member of the Carter family was on the way.

Then, in January 2014, Bey posted another photo of herself, this time at the beach. In the pic, her daughter, Blue Ivy, had buried her in the sand and molded a bit of a baby bump belly. Of course this led to more pregnancy speculation.

In October 2015, Bey posed for a magazine spread, and in one of the pics she is holding a chicken. As you may know, chickens lay eggs, so conspiracy theorists were certain she was hinting that she was pregnant.

A photo from Blue Ivy's birthday party at a cupcake decorating studio surfaced in January 2016 in which Beyoncé was wearing a white sweatshirt that wasn't her usual form-fitting attire. Cue more pregnancy rumors.

Because god forbid the woman eat a cupcake.

What do you think? Is Bey preggo for real this time or are people reaching just like all the other times?
