Some comments are said to pregnant women without thinking that it can be hurtful or even just annoying. Read on for 10 no-go comments.
Even if a woman is pregnant, she is still an ordinary person with ordinary feelings. And most people don't like being told they're big, whether they're expecting or not.
Not everyone wants to explain their family planning... (or lack thereof)
The absolute no-go unless you are very good friends.
If you think your pregnant friend is doing something that is inappropriate for her being pregnant, phrase it as a polite question. It can quickly sound accusatory to the pregnant woman if someone sticks their nose too far out.
Again - comments about other people's weight and size are just inappropriate.
Tell good birth stories, but keep the bad ones to yourself.
Most pregnant women suffer from heartburn, pain, swollen legs and sore backs. Especially towards the end of pregnancy, most pregnant women probably sleep quite badly. And guess what - you're pregnant because you WANT to have a baby. So this comment is really just annoying.
Not the right thing to say to an expectant mother.
Let the pregnant woman decide for herself what she is comfortable with, and respect a no.
No, no and no. When you are pregnant you want A CHILD, and there is no return policy. In fact, this comment can be incredibly hurtful to a pregnant woman.
