What goes through your head when you see a pregnant woman at a bar?

Does everyone assume they are "tacky", "classless", "gross". (Not my words)
Does everyone assume they MUST be single, and possibly a slut if there is no man with them?
Does everyone assume they are the lowest of the low and they have NO business being in a bar, doesn't matter the reason?

Or are there actually people out there who don't jump the gun to judge someone they know absolutely nothing about?

I'm curious for 2 reasons :
1. This stems from another question from earlier.
2. I played on a pool team while 8 months pregnant, and even got MVP and i'm curious if the majority of people actually may have thought I was a low life for the simple fact that I was pregnant and in a bar.

  • I would hope that she's not drinking alcohol.

  • I think if you see a woman drinking in a bar while pregnant, Yes, trashy, tacky and horrible -
    When you are in a bar and see a pregnant woman playing pool or being probably the sober driver for friends/S/O than no.. I never thought that.. I guess we all tend to judge without knowing the whole situation but I wouldn't automatically assume trash just because a pregnant woman was in a bar..

  • I would assume friends dragged them there or something

    BECAUSE .. when I was 8 months pregnant my aunt took me to one so she could meet a man.... so i sat there in a booth as drunkin idiots falling over themselves

  • Like I said you had to be there to see it. What she was doing and all the guys she dancing with and what she was wearing. Sorry if I offended you. I feel like it was tacky of her. It was about how she presented herself at the club, the things she was doing and what she was wearing.

  • I assume she is a designated driver. If I see a woman with an infant in a bar though.....well thats a whole nother story!

  • As long as she isn't drinking, I don't think anything about it. Some pregnant women still go out and act as the designated driver, so I don't think it's that unusual.

  • I think she probally did what i did and just wanted to hang out with her friends and hubby and could be the driver. but if i saw her drinking then that would be different.

  • Nothing runs through my head honestly. I sometimes go to the bar for their food and I am pregnant.

  • babygirl0782, you didn't offend me. You backed up with reasons why you thought this woman was being distasteful. I'm speaking of someone else who just happens to slap a label on all people without having any added reasons.

  • Here is a question. Not trying to start anything just curious. Do you consider a bar and a club the same thing? If you don't mind me asking?
