What not to say to a pregnant woman

"Wow what are you having...Triplets?"

No actually there is only one baby and i've only gained five pounds so far so get off my back...thanks.

Re: What not to say to a pregnant woman

  • Lady:  When are you due?

    Me:  In April

    Lady:  Wow you look like you could have that baby any day now (as she eyes my stomach and makes a wide eyed face)

    :/  Thanks lady for making me feel like a fat lard.  Ugh.  You would think a woman would understand not to say things like that!

  • "You need to calm down/chill/relax!"  If my hubby says this to me it has the opposite effect and I tend to lose it....poor guy.

  • Coworker1: So, your off Dec.7 to have the baby, right??..

    Me: Ugh, no, that is when my intern is finished for the semester...

    Coworker2: So, your due in January, right??..

    Me: Ugh, no...April...

    Since I am the HR Mgr, I can't come back and say what I would like to..and yes, I too, have gained just a handful of pounds.  I think that is our problem, actually, the lack of weight gain is accentuating the baby bump.

  • Coworker: "Wow, are you sure you're not having twins?"

    Me: ...blank stare...

    Coworker: "When are you due again?"

    Me: "April 18th."

    Coworker: ..."Oh man, that means she'll be an Aries."

    Me: "So?"

    Coworker: "Aries' are so airheaded."

    Me: "Um... my sister is an Aries, and she's the smartest person I know."

    Coworker: "Well, they're intelligent. But they totally lack common sense."

    Me: ...blank stare...

     

    I don't even know how to respond in these ridiculous situations! People are so ignorant.

  • Multiple co workers keep saying this " When are you due?"

    Me - " April" 

    Them " OHHH wow I thought you were almost ready, thats going to be one big baby". 

    Me  " Nope its just my beer belly ontop of the baby belly".

    Some people cant keep their remarks in check

  • I took my coat off at the dentist office the other day and the dental assistant (who is also pregnant) looks at me and says, "Oh my God you're huge! I'm due only a month after you and I'm nowhere near as big as you are."

  • Oh wow, people can be so stupid, lol... I've been lucky so far, I agree with people who say I'm huge (I am), and I had multiple people tell me this weekend that I had "that pregnant glow." I'm not sure what that actually looks like, haha, but I took it as a good thing!
    OMG too many tickers...
