I'm Nothing if Not Helpful

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

If you see a pregnant woman and don't know what to say, stick to something along these lines:

1. You look so cute/pretty/radiant etc

2. I am so happy/excited/giddy etc for you

3. You're going to be a wonderful mom/parents etc

4. Your baby is just going to be cute/pretty etc

Yep, I'd say that pretty much covers the safety zone.

side note: I have (very fortunately) been feeling well and/or great, so I've been able to answer the question "how are you feeling?" with "good" or "great" ...so I can't really speak for those preggies who feel otherwise. Treading lightly is probably always the best tactic.


  1. I completely agree! I'm expecting my 4th, and at work the other day a woman asked me when I'm due. I laughed and said, "September 28th."

    She blanched, then asked, "How many?" I responded, "Just one."

    She said, "Well, don't worry, honey. I was enormous when I was pregnant, too."


  2. This is all predicated upon the first unspoken rule: Make sure she's pregnant
