  • I agree! Those words annoy me to no end. I know it is suppose to be a fun and/or abreviation for pregnant, but it sill gets on my nerves!
    I agree 100% with you symle456

  • Ya' know, those words used to make me just cringe, but I have to admit, I've been guilty of using "prego" from time to time recently. : /

  • Oh, "preggo" bothers me to no end. You are "pregnant" not spaghetti sauce!!


    ...and don't get me started on "baby daddy". UGH.

  • I also agree, I would think that most women would have a little more respect for the unborn than that, I do have a high self-esteem, that has nothing to do with it...

  • The either don't know how to spell pregnant, or are to lazy to spell, pregnant. Just like the word, YOU they spell U. They are the people that probably, TEXT a lot.

  • Louise2, I think you're right about the lazy part. I find myself abbreviating "pregnant" to "prego" sometimes, but usually if my kiddo is in my lap & I'm typing with one hand. I think I'll stop doing it now... Didn't realize it bothered so many people!
