10 Things You Should Never Say to a Pregnant Woman

For some reason, pregnancy makes complete strangers think it's okay to make comments, give unsolicited advice and even touch a woman's belly.  So, here are a few things to keep to yourself, no matter how strong your urge to say them.

  1. You're huge! Pregnancy makes women self-conscious enough as it is.  I don't need to be reminded of how big my waistline has gotten.
  2. Are you sure there aren't twins in there? See number 1. I'm pretty sure if there were twins, it would have shown up on the ultrasound.
  3. Looks like you're ready to pop. Nope, still have two months to go, I'm going to get even bigger.  Thanks.
  4. Was it a surprise?  It is absolutely none of your business whether we were trying to conceive or it was the result of having one too many margaritas.
  5. You must be disappointed it's not a girl. Why on earth would I be disappointed exactly? 
  6. You really shouldn't eat/drink/do that.  Do not tell me what to do unless you're a medical professional.
  7. Is (s)he hear yet? Trust me, I'll let you know when she gets here.  Until then, stop reminding me that I'm 7 days overdue.
  8. Can I touch your belly? NO. But at least you didn't reach out and touch me without asking.
  9. Are you... breastfeeding/getting an epidural/etc.? Again none of your business and keep your advice to yourself unless you're asked.
  10. I bet you're having a... The only person I need to tell me the sex of my baby is the ultrasound tech.
