A Brief List of Comments to Avoid with Pregos
1 – Are you having twins?
2 – Looks like you’re having twins!
3 – I can’t believe you’ve already outgrown your clothes.
4 – You really might be having a girl, my friend who had a girl gained weight all over, too.
5 – You are bigger than you should be at this point (especially bad when spoken by a medical professional who is nor your doctor, or an OB-GYN)
6 – Maybe you are having a boy and a girl.
7 – Don’t drink coffee! You’re hurting your child! (After explaining I allow myself several small cups a week)
8 – You will be overdue, admitted with Pitocin, and receive a C-section. (I am not kidding, a total creeper sat at my bar and told me this after I revealed my strong desire to have a 100% natural home birth)
9 – You will always retain some of this weight.
10 – You haven’t gained all that weight in your ass yet…. You will!
