ranging from parenting tips and tricks, to offering emotional support and reassurance to help build confidence. Learn more at www.mommymasters.com. . People are capable of saying really stupid things at times. Whether they mean to or not, their words can be hurtful, insulting and quite puzzling. We can all say we have been guilty of letting a comment slip here and there, and then regretting it later, but for some, there is no remorse, no wish of turning back time and often a clear lack of filter. I could write a very long book on the subject of dumb things people say but I am going to focus on pregnancy since I am 39 weeks and ready to pop. When someone is pregnant, the topic of how you look and how you feel is an obvious and easy choice for conversation. Don’t get me wrong, I love answering questions and sharing my pregnancy with those that ask about it, but it never fails to amaze me the funny, odd, rude and just plain stupid things that have been said to me. With each pregnancy, (this is my third), the comments just get better and better. So here are my top 10 favorites: . 1) Comment: Are you having a girl? My response: No Comment: Are you having a boy then? My response: Well if I’m not having a girl, then chances are it’s a boy. What I was thinking: No…I am actually having a dog. Really? open in browser PRO version

2) Comment: Do you know what you are having? My response: Yes, we are having a boy. Comment: Another boy….oh…I’m sorry to hear that. You must have wanted that girl. My response: We’re not. We are extremely excited and happy to add a third boy to our crew. As

long as it’s healthy, we really don’t care what we are having.

What I was thinking: I’m sorry you’re an idiot…(and then a smile).

3) Comment: Wow…you look different to me today…like you have dropped quite a bit. Now you look really pregnant and ready to go. Wow. I bet you can’t wait to get this baby out. But… you still look good though. My response: Well…I am 2 weeks away so I am probably looking like a pregnant woman who is about to give birth should look. I am feeling pretty good actually so not in any rush…I need these few weeks to get ready. What I was thinking: What do you expect me to look like? I am out and about, living my life when I could be bitching and complaining in bed. I actually thought I looked pretty good, considering, but clearly my mirror lied to me this morning… thanks for the play by play though.

4) Comment: You are HUGE!!! Holy Cow! open in browser PRO version

My response: Uh…yes, my stomach is very big but I feel great. Just for future reference, you never tell a pregnant woman she is huge, (along with a slight chuckle). What I was thinking: Jerk!

5) Comment: I didn’t see your face come through the door, only your body… thought you were a short fat woman. (Yes, someone actually said this to me) My response: SILENCE along with a very dirty look. What I was thinking: What the hell is wrong with you?

6) Comment: I wish you nothing but the best with your delivery…especially considering so many things can go wrong. (Said by a Nurse Practitioner at an appointment, none the less). My response: Thank you and I’m sure my surgery will go great. What I was thinking: Did you really just say that out loud? Shame on you!

7) Comment: You are nuts to have a third…I cannot imagine. In fact, I’m a bit scared for you. My response: I’m sure it will be crazy at first but once I get into a rhythm, it will be my everyday life and I can’t wait! What I was thinking: I am scared for you and you only have one! open in browser PRO version

8) Comment: You must be having a girl because from the back you have gotten quite wide in the past few weeks. My response: No words, only tears! What I was thinking: Why? Why? Why? You mean and heartless person!

9) Comment: I bet you are having another boy. It makes sense because I can’t see you with a girl anyway. You’re a better “boy” mom. My response: Thanks… I think. I hope it’s a boy then…otherwise I’m in trouble, right?” What I was thinking: Did I just get insulted? I think I did…not really sure.

10) Comment: How are you feeling? You definitely look tired today…especially around your eyes. My response: You guessed it. I am tired…to be expected being that I am pregnant chasing 2 kiddies around and adding in the fact that my husband has been gone all week travelling. What I was thinking: Clearly if my face is telling you how I am feeling, is there really a need to ask? I feel crappy enough as it is, am feeling fat, bloated and exhausted…no need for you to bring it to my attention and make me feel worse. Thanks though! By far, one of the most irritating comments, pregnant or not. open in browser PRO version

People are stupid, plain and simple. I think pregnant women are incredibly beautiful. I always felt the prettiest when I was pregnant. I have to give you credit because all of your “thoughts” are what I would have, and actually have, said in reply to those questions. By the time my third pregnancy came along those who knew me didn’t even bother to ask anything. Only the unaware and stupid ones dared open their mouths. Congrats on the baby btw. Don’t worry, the routine for the third baby falls into place faster than the rest did. Well for me it did.

What is this pregnancy excuse from the usual rules of decorum? If you shouldn’t say it when I’m not pregnant, don’t say it when I am. Ditto for unsolicited parenting/life advice. I still prefer the comments over the groping though. I never knew if slapping an old man’s hand while he reached for my pregnant belly in line at the grocery store was acceptable. Kudos for your amazing reatraint while filled with hormones, and good luck with the next few weeks of changes coming your way. RE PL Y

I literally just lol’ed, Am about to hit 17 weeks and this is one of my biggest fears when it comes to being around other people. Two weeks ago I was at a bar and this chick asked why I wasn’t drinking. After I told her that I am prego, she started rubbing my belly and announcing to the whole bar “This girl is pregnant, she is REALLY pregnant.” Even with me explaining that I wasn’t far enough along for her to feel anything, it took me a couple minutes to get her to stop. And yes, I had just met her that night. I wanted to scream. RE PL Y

Insane! People actually say such things??? How offensive can you get! Congrats on number 3. If it is any comfort, the third time around is much easier with all the baby stuff, at least it was for me. You know what to do and what to expect and you don’t freak out over unimportant things like you did with your first. The only tough part for me was my older two were 3 and 19 months when the last one was born. I think I was tired for a whole year. But now that the baby is 17 months I find it much easier.

What is it with people thinking because you have a child of one gender you must want the next one to the be the other gender. I have a son and am currently pregnant with #2, we didn’t find out the sex (maybe we should have to shut everyone up) people keep saying “I’ll pray for a girl for you”. Actually (I’d be happy with either, blah blah blah) but I am leaning towards wanting another boy more, pray for that. RE PL Y

I once had someone at a baby expo ask if I was shopping for a grandchild…great way to sell a pregnant woman something. In all fairness, I WAS old for having one (46), but can I help it if that was God’s plan? And I agree, what is it about a pregnant woman’s belly that makes it public property? I was next door at my bachelor neighbor’s one day and his best friend informed me that WE weren’t good enough friends to help me clean out my garage. When he reached for my belly, I told HIM “if we were good enough friends to help me clean out the garage, we SURE AS HELL weren’t good enough friends to touch my belly!” congrats on #3, wish I were having another (yeah, I know, I’m NUTS!)

I had a short fuse for idiots during my first pregnancy, it was unplanned and emotions and stress ran high. :) With both my pregnancies I got the “are you sure there is only one in there?” comment on a regular basis.

I’ve only had one child, but by FAR the worst comment had nothing to do with my physical appearance, but instead came in the form of a mini lecture from my MIL telling me how I had to “take care of my husband” because, “men have needs.” She continued for an uncomfortable 10 minutes or so, telling me how soon after birth sex was needed by her husband, and how often they had, and still have, sex. “You know those Johnson men…” Ugh.

My awesome (I hope you can see the sarcasm oozing off the word awesome) brother in law told me during my first pregnancy, “I’m really proud of you.

You look like you’ve lost 20lbs!” LOL Seriously, people really need to remember their filters before they speak, especially to pregnant ladies.

That’s an interesting article and has me thinking. I would OF COURSE love my child if he/she wasn’t healthy.
