  • Yeah... I'm 25 and pregnant, not 15 and preggers. I have not run into this problem yet because next to nobody has been told, but I will correct people if need be. haha.

  • I can't stand that, Preggers is the worst to me.  My cousin always said she was preg-nuts and that bugged me a lot also.

  • Me frickin too.  I also get sick in the mouth over phrases like "pregnant/preggo/preggers brain" or "mommy brain".  Shut up.  You forgot something, it's not a side effect from your fetus.

    Now, why wouldn't you want to be a jar of spaghetti sauce????

    I totally agree.  I am 37, and could not possibly be anything other than pregnant.  My BFF calls me preggers all the time.  I find ways to end the call.

    hehe this is great...:)

  • One of my nicknames in college was Prego (yep, klassy) so I don't think it would bother me... but I haven't encountered ANYONE as a real grown-up who actually uses these words now. :)

  • It doesn't seem like a big-damn deal... I mean, I understand if you don't want someone calling you preggo or anything like that, but for me it rolls off the tongue better... Just cause you don't like it doesn't mean others shouldn't use it or that it's childish...
