Things Pregnant Ladies Don't Want to Hear

Hey Prego.

How are you feeling?

Are you having twins?

Maybe it's twins!

Are you having a boy or a girl?

Are you going to find out if it's a boy or a girl?

When are you due? Oh, I thought it was much sooner!

Wow, you're getting really big fast this time.

Oh that's just the hormones talking.

You're glowing.


Enjoy it--this is the best time.

I THOUGHT you were pregnant, because normally you're so tiny.

Breastfeeding isn't any easier the second time around.


Just call me McGrumpykins. There is nothing inherently mean or wrong about any of these statements but I'm entering the phase of pregnancy where nothing fits well, I'm not feeling cute, and my belly has a zip code of its own. 

And I know I've said almost all of these things to pregnant women and now I see how annoying it is to hear them on a daily basis. So just nod and throw some chocolate chips at me when you walk by. That's the best approach.
