Sometimes you wonder how people haven’t gotten the memo that it’s NEVER okay to ask a woman if she’s pregnant, unless you’re absolutely sure. Awkward Alert!
My friend that’s due in October has been posting some inappropriate/obnoxious comments she’s received, while being pregnant, and I just had to share them with you. I seriously want to punch these strangers in the face, for their rudeness. I’ve also included some additional comments that other friends have responded to, based on her posts.
From my friend’s posts:
I wasn’t that offended. You should have seen the way she looked.
And additional comments that others have received:
I had a guy stop me on the street when I was 36 weeks and say “Um, the hospital is that way…” and then laugh at his own joke. Creep.
It really is unreal what people will say- I had a co worker ask me if I’d eaten the whole Thanksgiving turkey. I almost punched her 🙂
This past week, people have decided to ask my wife when our twins are due. This is not good.
While pregnant suffering through a spin class a very beautiful gym patron said she could tell I was having a girl. When I asked how (in front of the class) she replied that baby girls suck the pretty out of you! Nice!
For all of you pregnant mamas out there, or mamas that have been pregnant, what absurd comments have you heard? And for all of you not pregnant yet…just wait, see all the fun you have to look forward to? Oh, and if you’re saying to yourself…well, I’m pretty laid back, I’d just let the comments roll off my back…just wait until those lovely pregnancy hormones kick in. 🙂
