I started thinking more about this after talking to my mom the other night. We were talking about less than tactful things said to people related to pregnancy. Both mom and I asked different people about their upcoming births, though they'd actually already delivered. I know people who have been asked about their pregnancies, when they were not pregnant.
It did not bother me when people told me that I was "getting big" or was "so big," because I WAS big. I understood it. I looked at myself and thought the same thing. However, the stranger who told me that I "must" be having twins went too far. When I told her that I was not actually having twins, she didn't get embarrassed or anything, she just insisted that I must be having a really big baby. Now, I wasn't that big, not two baby big, anyway. (And, the way I'm headed, I will definitely be bigger this time.)
I was also told that I probably wouldn't have a problem giving birth, because I had "child-bearing hips." Yeah, thanks for the vote of confidence.
Ok, so what have you said to people, or what was said to you in regard to pregnancy?
