Disclaimer: I'm definitely not advocating you lie or stretch the truth in order to placate the pregnant women in your life. They're big girls, and they can handle themselves either way. I promise. However, and if you are so inclined, there are some specific comments every pregnant woman needs to hear.
OK, maybe "need" is too strong a word. At the very least, however, there are compliments pregnant women really, really want to hear because, speaking from experience, all pregnant women should hear things that make them feel good during this crazy, intense, and often difficult time. In fact, I might consider reaching out to the people who write pregnancy books and suggesting they add specific chapters addressing this very issue. Not sure about you guys, but the books I read certainly did not emphasize kind words nearly enough.
For the record, my friends and loved ones were wildly supportive when I was pregnant with my son, but they’re simply not mind-readers. Even for the most loving, kind, and awesome people, the needs of a pregnant woman can be very specific and unpredictable (no, you're a moody mess whose food cravings are all over the place). Although, now that this list exists, perhaps I’ll be a little more straightforward should I find myself in need of pregnancy support again.
