8 Funny Things People Say When You’re Pregnant
Oh man, have I heard some ridiculous things lately. Something about sporting this bump has welcomed people to just say whatever they want without ANY filter.
Ready to laugh??
“You Must Be Having a Girl.”image: weheartit.com
I immediately take some sort of offense to this because it’s basically telling me, “your hips and butt have gotten huge.” If you haven’t heard the old wives tale they say GIRLS make you wide whereas BOYS just give you a belly. (Which isn’t always the case.. however it is common.) So thank you for your observation, yes I am having a girl AND my hips and butt have grown as well. (insert annoyed face here)
“You Look Tired.”image: weheartit.com
This is very similar to when people tell you, you look sick. There is nothing nice about this. Both statements are basically telling you, you look like hell. Why yes, in fact I am exhausted… I’m growing a HUMAN inside of me.. Why do YOU look so tired?!
“Were You Trying To Get Pregnant?”
Unless I know you on a personal level, I don’t typically talk about my adventures in the bedroom and how it happened. I always find this question odd. I get it, there are many unplanned pregnancies that occur.. but still. Sometimes I just want to respond with something crazy like, “No, and we aren’t even intimate.. I’m so confused?!”
“You Shouldn’t Be Doing..”image: giphy.com
Being pregnant comes with A LOT of unsolicited advice. Usually the advice is coming from a good place but there are always those people that have zero filter and come across as very critical. The only person I’m going to listen to these days is my doctor. To the negative people that act as though they are experts in pregnancy, I just smile and nod. 🙂
“You’re Going To Wear That?”
Listen, unless you’re going to restock my closet with fabulous maternity clothes, I don’t want to hear it. My wardrobe nowadays consists of leggings, t’shirts, sweaters and jackets. Sometimes I wear my 2 pairs of maternity jeans if I’m feeling like I need to dress up. Otherwise that’s it. As Regina George said in Mean Girls, “nothing else fits me right now.”
“You’re So Hormonal.”image: weheartit.com
Oh am I? I didn’t know. Tell me more about how crazy I am right now. This is like adding fuel to a fire. In fact, I’m about to show you the REAL hormones in a minute if you don’t shut your mouth. (insert crazy, funny face here.)
“Are You Ready To Never Sleep Again?”
I always wonder why people ask me this. Yes, I already know I’m in for a lot of sleepless nights. Want to know the crazy thing, I am CHOOSING to have those sleepless nights in my future because I can’t wait to be a mom! Crazy, huh? I usually just respond sarcastically and say, “Nah.. I’m going to drop her (baby) off at your house.”
“Your Life Is Never Going To Be The Same.”
Very similar to the sleep comment, I feel like I immediately get defensive when people say this to me. Listen, I know my life won’t be the same, in fact it’s only going to get better and I’m so excited for it! Thanks for the concern, I guess?
