Heh the first person who ever told me I had child-bearing hips was my stepbrother when I was 13 years. I think he chose that phrasing because saying “damn, yous got a big ass!” (which is what I’m sure he really wanted to say) may have been construed as inappropriate. 

The last person who told me this was my husband. I’m fairly sure he meant it as a compliment. Haven’t had a kid yet, so don’t know if there’s anything to it, or if I just have a big ass Wink

I would not have been pleased if someone had told me that.

Unfortunately, wide hips does not easy birth make. My sister has wide hips and she had to have 2 c-sections, because her pelvic outlet was too narrow.


No one’s ever told me that, but I’ve always wanted wide hips.

I had a Gyno tell me that once and I think he was right bc I only labored for 6 hours. I think a wide birthing canal is different than just wide hips.

@Mrs Sarah McK:Having wide hips and a fat ass is desired in the African American community. I am AA and I have neither….lol. I wish I had more hips to balance my Dirty Delete boobs.

Well, I didn’t save myself until the wedding and still managed to get pregnant right away. So I’m not so sure that theory works.

Yes people have said this to me, but it just means that I have huge hips. I will never understand why people think it’s OK to say these things..

Pretty much everyone I know has told me that I have child bearing hips. Its annoying. I know my hips are big and are only going to get bigger after kids – my mom is really thin but has HUGE hips.

i got told that in high school. O_O FH is a giant though, so not even my ‘child-bearing hips’ are going to save me from the pain of bearing his huge ass babies, i’m afraid.

It means you have big hips.  I think, depending on who says it, this is either a compliment or an insult.    I wish I had some hips.  I have no hips at all, which also makes it look like I have no waist.

 No one has ever said those exact words to me but I do know I have some big ol hips! Actually, I was thinking about how I must have “child bearing hips” not too long ago because I’m almost nine months pregnant and my hips are the ONLY thing thats actually NOT uncomfortable right now. But I have a super long torso that sits on very curvy hips. So the baby has tons of room.

 As for pants shopping sometimes my hips really “get in the way”. =(

At my last OB/GYN appointment, the midwife told me that I’ll have no problem delivering a baby with my hips. When pregnant, this is a giant compliment, at least I think it was.
