There are certain things we prefer to keep to ourselves -especially during this unique time. Because being pregnant means no less than your body changing completely, being flooded with a torrent of hormones that seem to be fighting with each other, and posing endless existential questions about your future child. In short, mums-to-be don’t have it easy! And it doesn’t take much to upset them. Here are a few phrases NEVER to say to a pregnant woman!
1/ You’re not due for 5 weeks? I was your size when I was giving birth!
You want us to feel even worse about ourselves, is it??
2/ Are you allowed eat that?
You are already talking to a woman who is permanently starved with the hunger -don’t push your luck! There is nothing more annoying than someone preaching at us and watching every bite of cake we put into our mouths.
3/ My bump was much bigger than yours by that stage. Are you sure the baby’s okay?
As if we weren’t worried enough already!!!
4/ Make the most of all the sleep you can get now -there’ll be no more of it once the baby gets here!
Well thanks for the advice…..
5/ Do you want another one after?
Are you really asking us if we want another baby, even before having given birth to this one??
