You can't stop someone from thinking that. But people should save the embarrassment (on both sides) by not expressing their thought out loud.

here's a thought maybe they were just trying to be nice and it isn't our fault if you carry your weight in the "wrong" places. it may not even be her fault, I guess what I'm saying is don't be so testy.

Not really, what if she really is pregnant and could use some rest? You can never win in todays society no matter what you someone will be offended.

Well, I agree you should offer someone like a pregnant woman or elderly person a seat, but op DID decline when first asked.

I sometimes have dreams where I ask someone if they're pregnant and then they say no and start yelling at me. And then I wake up and start crying

Don't worry about it. A lot of times people just say things without thinking about it. She clearly meant well when she offered you her seat.

That'd be extremely creepy even if she was pregnant.. "Oh hello stranger I don't know at all, let me put my hands on you"

30 that's actually totally normal in some places, my aunt was down in Brazil and she said that where ever she went there were people touching her belly or blessing her health. I've heard similar stories before in other Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries.

Yes, it creepy and rude but people do it. All the while giving unasked for advice. When someone Buddha rubs my belly and ask when I'm due, I answer and rub theirs back and ask them the same.

You got a seat in an obviously crowded situation AND made the other person feel pious. They deserved to lose their seat from making assumptions - even if well-intentioned.
