A man can't be pregnant, so it just sounds silly to me. I understand wanting to include him, so why not say, "We're going to be parents" or "we're having a baby". What are your thoughts on this?
Ugh...my DH tried to say that a couple times, but I told him it drove me crazy even if I appreciate the intention behind it. Obviously, we might have both said things like 'We're having a baby.' or 'When we have the baby...", but to say 'We're pregnant.' seemed really silly to me. He didn't vomit in the first months, he didn't develop SPD and have hip problems near the end of the pregnancy, he didn't have to monitor everything he ate and drank for 9 months, and he didn't go through over 24 hours of labor without pain meds or end up with a c-section. I am VERY grateful for his help and support during the pregnancy, but he was not pregnant. LOL
