I think this is just me but...

Am I the only one who gets slightly annoyed with all the little shorter "cute" ways to say pregnant? IE: "Preggers" and "Prego"? I think pregnancy for me was the best time of my life (despite being HUGE and on bed rest) and I always felt giving it another name cheapened things a great deal.

  • I think you are overreacting to people trying to enjoy being pregnant in their own way. It is a word. Not even a swear word. If you must get offended get offended at the word *uck or Shi*.

  • i only use preg. or prego. when typing something thats pretty long, and in that case I try and shorten as many words as possible.

    I dont use it in my day to day speech though

  • To Anonymous: I wasn't saying that I got offended, simply annoyed. You know, how a fly is buzzing and it annoys you but you let the fly buzz anyway? Yeah that, like I said SLIGHTLY annoyed.
