Pregnancy is a very special part of a woman’s life. And pregnant women are everywhere. Not everyone has an experience with being around someone growing a little human inside of them. Therefore, it’s very important to know what you should and should not ever say to pregnant women.
Now, you might think that pregnant women will anyways be so moody, it wouldn’t matter what I say she can get pissed on something as trivial as, “I don’t think so it’s gonna rain today”. Well, that’s right! She can be moody and short tempered for so many things but who can blame her. She is growing LIFE after all!
Besides that there are some comments which should be completely off limit while talking to her. Here are 21 such comments which you should AVOID at all costs:
You are so BIG.
You are so SMALL.
Sleep all you want NOW.
Do you know there are so many side effects to an EPIDURAL?
OR… Babies are meant to be born NATURALLY and DRUG-FREE.
Was this one PLANNED?
All the Baby-weight will NOT go no matter how hard you try!
I think it’s going to be a GIRL/BOY because… (Some old wives tale)
I don’t think so you should eat this
Baby will come when the GOD wants it to.
I think you have put on more weight than you should.
.. (Any random Labor Horror Story)
OMG! You can really eat whole of (Some food) all by Yourself.
It looks like Baby will be here anytime now
*Touches Belly* or Asking for permission to touch the belly
Aren’t you too old/ too young to have a baby?
I think you would be better as raising a boy than a girl.
I had a very easy pregnancy- no morning sickness, moderate back pain etc.
Enjoy alone time with your hubby now, it will surely be kicked down the drain once baby arrives!
My pregnant (friend, relative..) ate healthily and exercised all throughout pregnancy.
Last, never ever say “You are hungry, again? But, you just ate!”
Which one of these are you guilty of?
