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.
