Why do people say Preggers and Prego?

Why not just pregnant? If it is a short hand for typing why not Preg. Or Pg.

  • im 16 and a lot of girls my age say it. its short hand and they think people dont know what they're talking about either that or they scared to say the word pregnant. i cant stand when people say prego or preggers, its sounds childish. i told my friends either say pregnant or dont say it at all otherwise you sound stupid.

  • I have wondered that myself. It just seems like it minimizes, or makes light of such an important time.

  • I've been on here awhile and this is not the weirdest question!

    And because they're idiots. Those words drive me nuts. It makes them sound unintelligent, just like any other slang.
