Things NOT to Say to a Pregnant Woman!

My January Birth Board started a post on this and thought it was funny.... so thought I'd share with you! BTW, these are all things that someone has actually said to women on this board....

"Is this a good thing or a bad thing?"

"Congrats... I guess!"

"Should you really be eating/drinking/doing that?"

"How much weight have you gained?" followed by a disapproving look

"Can you even afford a baby?"

"Now you'll never be able to do what you want to do!"

"Are you STILL pregnant?"

"Wow, you're HUGE!"

"I was a lot bigger/smaller than you at [insert how far along you are]"

"What are you having?" asked at 8 weeks or less

"I hope this wasn't planned!"

"I hope this WAS planned!"

"Are you sure it's not twins?"

"Are you sure your pregnant?"

"Are you sure your baby is ok?"

"You have to find out what the sex of the baby is... and if you don't, you should have the doctor call me so I'll know!"

"You shouldn't name the baby [insert your child's name], you should name it [insert name of person talking to you]"

"You don't look sick at all, did you have a miscarriage?"

"Stop being pregnant paranoid, I did that when I was pregnant and my child turned out fine!"

"I smoked/drank/etc while pregnant and my baby turned out perfect!"

"I can't believe you won't tell ME what you're having! I need to know! You're ruining everything!"

"Well you definately have the hips to have a big baby"

"My baby is going to be so spoiled. " said by someone other than the person actually carrying the baby

"Who's the father?"

"Are you going to keep it?"

"Was it planned?"

"You're pregnant? You don't look any different."

"You'll probably miscarry... everyone miscarries a baby atleast once."

"Are you even old enough to have a baby?"

"Girl you are gaining WEIGHT!"

"Is this your oops baby?"

"You can't have your shower then... I won't be able to come if you have it on that day!"

"Are you going to have an abortion?"

"Awww! Have the baby on MY birthday!"

"Don't you know what that causes that?"

There were so many more... and they just got worse and worse :-\
