Pregnancy Pregnancy

S/O Dumb things people say to you when you're pregnant...

Posted by   + Show Post

What are some dumb things people have said to you when you were pregnant?

Right before I found out I was pregnant with my first, I was freaking out because I was a couple days late and figuring I was very likely pregnant, I just hadnt taken a test yet. DH knew I was upset and offered to get me a drink to help me relax. I just looked at him.... He said "Oh yeah, I forgot." I looked at him like, "well, I sure didnt!"

People say this to me all the time because my last pregnancy was twins and I'm huge this time. Literally... all...the...time. It gets old. lol. And the other one that people are CONSTANTLY saying is "So are ya done after this one?" Idk. Maybe I am, maybe I'm not. It's really none of your business!

Quoting beadingmom17:

"Are you SURE it's just one?!"

I always wanted to respond "Yes, asshole...I'm pretty sure in 3 ultrasounds a second would have been caught and thanks for pointing out how big I am". My girls were both over 9lbs.

when a stranger reaches to touch your belly reach over and touch them, when they give you a weird look or say something just be like oh i figured if you wanted to touch me you wouldnt have a problem if i touched you

Wow your huge, are you sure theres only one in there?

You look so young to have a child and be pregnant again.

When's your due date?

Do you know if it's a boy or girl?

Basically anything anyone asks me annoys me.

Oh, yeah, that's always a fun time.

I have 2 girls, so after we found out it was another girl, we got the "are you going to have a third and try for a boy?" I don't think it's just the expecting mother that gets pregnancy brain...lol

I hate people who ask about gender and put a lot of emphasis on gender. 

I have four girls--so I always get "are you done yet?" "are you trying for a boy this time"....and I seriously hate it. I wasn't trying for a boy to begin with....I was trying for a "baby!" which is the most important thing...I love my four girls...would I like a boy? Sure! but I am happy with girls. And guess what, #5 was a boy! SO I got my boy...but still...I hate how much emphasis people put on gender! :(

We got married after our 1st baby---she was 2 months old at the wedding....I planned the wedding in 2 months! LOL. My mom couldn't believe i lost all my weight to fit into a smaller dress so she actually bought me a dress that was 8 sizes too big and altered it down! (sigh)...but yeah....i hate this stigma too because the traditional role is to have the baby AFTER marriage...so when you do it "backwards"---people have only that one question on their mind...

we got the "why get married when we are already living in sin"....!? we were going to marriage counseling & planning our wedding & people were afraid to come to our wedding because we were already living together.... *shakes head* (it was people who didn't know us---we had a church wedding--so the church was invited as well as friends & family type of thing---so it was the hoity toity church followers that were saying that!)

 Lmao. That has got to be the funniest thing I have ever heard. I'd have busted out laughing.

Where I used to work while pg with ds, one of the co-workers flipped out when I was squatting. She told me to get up and stop doing that because the baby's head will crack open. I was speechless!
