10 Crazy things People say to Pregnant Women

People can say some really crazy things when a woman is carrying a baby bump. It really is fascinating to see how people react to the big news.

Here is a list of the ridiculous things that I’ve heard:

“ You’re having a boy, your belly is high”

Although science has yet to link the shape of a pregnant woman’s belly to the gender of the baby she’s having, that doesn’t stop people from guessing.

“Are you carrying twins?”

No. There’s just one baby in there, and maybe a lot of pasta.

“Can I touch your belly?”

What I’d like to say: “For a small fee!”

What I usually say: “Sure!”

“You look tired.”

That’s because I am, thanks to pregnancy insomnia. And now, I am hyper-aware that my concealer isn’t working, thank you!

“Oh, my ankles also got swollen when I was pregnant.”

Oh that’s nice, my ankles actually always look this way!?

“Get in all the sleep you can now.”

Reality check…Sleep is not like a savings account — you can’t save it up for a dry spell.

“You already have a boy and a girl, this one’s just gravy!”

I’m sorry, but I think I’m committing to a little more than just “gravy” with kid no. 3.

 “You’re getting close!”

No, actually I still have two months to go….

“It’s really hot today. You must be really hot!”

Yes. Because I am lugging around a watermelon 24/7, I’m always hot.

“You’ve got that pregnant woman glow!”

This is one saying that I never get tired of hearing.
