Rude Things People Say to Pregnant Women

Babysugar Diaries: Twins?


Adults say the darnedest things. The other day I shared an elevator with a woman who looked at me and asked, "So when are you due?" Breaking a smile I said, "Thanksgiving Day!" She looked at me and said, "Whoa! Twins?" I replied, "No. Just one." Used to insults from my last pregnancy, I left the store thinking that I don't care if I gain a whole bunch of weight as long as I have a healthy baby. But, it would be nice if people would keep their thoughts to themselves.

People aim some of the rudest comments at childbearing women. During my first pregnancy, one lady said to me, "I can tell it is going to be a girl by the way you're coming out on the sides." Who says that? What was the worst thing someone said to you while you were pregnant?
