Does anyone else have a pregnancy term/saying that just bugs you? Please share!
I am NOT a fan of people saying “you’re glowing!” I have no idea why, but I feel like if someone ever tells me I’m glowing they’re going to get a huge sarcastic eye roll from the crazy pregnant lady! I also don’t like it when people abbreviate pregnant and call it “PG.” No idea why! Anyone else?

I loved going to social events throughout my pregnancy. When I got to full term I got whole lot of the, “You are going to pop anytime now!” “What you going to do if you go into labor?” “You should be at home!” I don’t know why but it bugged the crap out of me. It is like people forget we are still normal people with lives outside of our pregnancy.

@JaneyDcat: Completely agree! We are having a baby is ok, we’re pregnant irritates me too!

I hate the word “preggers”. It takes just as much effort to say “pregnant” and it’s the same amount of letters. So what do we gain by saying “preggers” over “pregnant”?

@JaneyDcat: hahaha my SO HATES this!
I’m guilty of using “preggo” but I don’t like “preggers”. I can’t really think of any terms but I’m not pregnant so I don’t encounter terms often.

I hated the “due date must be soon” comments. They were pretty well saying, “You look like a whale, you must be due soon”.

@loveknows: I haaaaate people calling me “mommy.” There’s a guy at work who’s like 50 and calls me “mommy” and it seriously grosses me out. I get the heebies just thinking about it 😡

@moniquaa: Not a fan of the term ‘baby bump’. It just strikes me as obnoxious. Preggers is bad too, but ‘prego/preggo’ doesn’t bother me (yet anyways). 🙂

Preggo drives me nuts. I’m not pregnant but whenever somebody says someone is preggo I always think of the spaghetti sauce, random I know.

Not exactly a saying/term, but when we announced that I’m pregnant, nearly everyone I know almost immediately followed up their congratulations by asking, “Was it planned or a surprise?” What? Really? Apparantely people really think that is an appropriate and common line of questioning.
I agree about the ‘glowing’ thing, OP. I have felt many things during this pregnancy, but glowing has literally never been one of them.
