Things not to say to a pregnant woman

"So, when are you going to pop?"

"I hope there's twins in there!"

"You're only (insert number here) months along? You look like you could be due any day!"

"Wow! You are getting huge!"

"You look SO uncomfortable!"

"Whoa!"

......this list could go on and on....if you've ever been pregnant, I'm sure you've heard your fair share of stupid comments.

::::::::::::::::::::::::

On the other hand, please feel free to say any of the following, at anytime, to a pregnant woman;

"You look SO great!"

"From behind, I can't even tell you're expecting!"

"Is your face getting thinner?"

"Are you sure you're eating enough?"

"Honey, you should be eating more ice cream."

"Your walk looks so normal, without a hint of waddle."

(I've not heard the above, but am making a mental note to say these things to the pregnant women I encounter from here on out.)

I've found you! I was looking around people's facebooks and I found the link. It was like finding a five-dollar bill in last seasons coat!

Searching facebook was not on the "schedule" but it sure beats cleaning the bedrooms.

Every time I see you it makes me miss being pregnant. You make a wonderful pregnant lady!

If I had a dollar for everytime someone asked me if I was having twins during my pregnancy w/ Jessica, I'd be on Easy Street. Though, in all fairness, she WAS big enough to be twins.

But you? You look great and should be eating more ice cream.

I think you should chase the ice cream with some cheese curds. :)

At least you are pregnant when people are making their 'lovely' comments...I asked someone once when they were due and she had already had the baby!(oops!!)

Keep that ice cream coming I'm sure little one loves it too! And maybe a BIG Montana from Arbys! (remember that?)

I am only 20 weeks and just got asked... wow, you are HUGE (big arm gesture) are you sure it's not twins?

Nice... thank you... in the middle of Target where everyone suddenly stopped and stared at my mid section...and it's not like I just didn't show her my ultasound photos where there is only ONE baby in there!
