uggh I hate the words preggo, preggers....

Am I the only one? Its not cute or short for the word pregnant, one is only 2 letters less the other has the same number of letters. These are new words because they were not used when I was pregnant in 04 - 06 with my 2 kids.
Am I the only one?
Do you use these words? And how old are you? I am 29.

  • Was called this all the time when in both my pregnancies, 1st one being in 06, and it never really bothered me. Infact I even posed with a jar of "Prego" spaghetti sauce as a joke lol. But some people are just sensitive and dont prefer to be given nicknames I guess. No biggie

  • Hate it! Really, people, I not a jar of spaghetti sauce. I am carrying a child. I am pregnant. Is it really that hard to say, or type, the entire word? By the way, I'm 20.
