And Only Three

I’ve recently determined that there are only three things you should say to a pregnant woman:

1. You look fantastic!

2. Would you like to sit down?

3. Here’s a cookie.

I concur.

Amen. And maybe also: here are some awesome gifts/massage gift cards/clothes I bought for you.

Or, instead of the cookie, "What would you like to eat?" Because it could vary drastically hour to hour.

And NEVER touch a pregnant woman's belly. Ever.

Right?

Em, you make me smile! How are you feeling these days? Let me guess . . . examining the 3 things in your post you feel frumpy, tired, and have cravings? Isn't pregnancy fun? Love you! ;)

My favorite is "Wow, you don't look that far along at all!"

(with "Would you like fries with that?" coming in a close second.)

Pearls of wisdom indeed! And as you reach the end, comments like, "Still pregnant?" deserve only a sour scowl. :)

Because the top three things you should never say including,

--"aren't you due any day now?" said by people at church when you're 18-24 weeks along
--"wow, big baby, huh?" said eyeing your stomach
--"hey, when we due? WHEN WE DUE?" said by leering drunk man

were things that I heard on a regular basis.

sigh.

the downside of pregnancy.

Just wait till you hear, "Wow you look like your about to pop!" That's my favorite.

It now occurs to me that my comment makes it appear that leering drunk men talked to me on a regular basis. Not true. That one only happened once. The other ones, quite regularly.

I'll stop talking now. Sit down, dear, and have a cookie.

This should be taught in public school.
