Were you ever refered to as being "Prego" or "pregs" when you were pregnant and did it bother or offend you?


Edit: wow featured!
Well it never offended me. It just got on my nerves like a pet peeve. But I always let it slide eventhough it made people sound like they were pre-teens and immature to a point, but I also understood that it was the thing to call women in that condition

Why is that? I was kinda offended because it made it feel like I was being made fun of or it was a joke that I was pregnant

Never bothered me I used it myself, & I never felt that way

Did someone try making a joke by saying that to you? Or someone you dont like?

No. It's just a shortened version of pregnant.

Nope, doesn't bother me. I'm not a big fan of "preggers" personally but I've never really heard that one much anyway.

A guy at work calls me Prego, and he always yells "preggo my eggo!" or he'll say that I'm now not considered a pedestrian, but a pedestrians... Lol. He's not the brightest but it makes me laugh.
