Nine months of pregnancy can evoke one of two emotions: overwhelming happiness or absolute misery. Regardless of which you fall under (I experienced absolute misery), there are some comments and questions every pregnant woman absolutely dreads hearing, but will probably continue to hear throughout her 40 (more or less) week pregnancy. As one can imagine, it gets real old real fast. While there's no specific way any woman should feel about her pregnancy, it's the inquisition from those around us that become the most exhausting.
During my first pregnancy I received the usual barrage of questions, mostly because, as first time parents, everyone around us was so curious to know the answers. It was only during the second pregnancy that I realized how sick and tired I was of being asked the same questions over and over again. I realize people mean well and perhaps the comments or questions might come out in a way that they might not mean, but when you're pregnant, you really don't care. I blame the hormones (and honestly, you should, too). If I'd never been asked these things, or heard the comments about looking like I'm "about to pop" only three months into my pregnancy, I might not be so cynical now. But, I digress.
Nine months is a long time to hear everyone's thoughts and unsolicited opinions (not to mention unnecessary and often less-than-helpful advice) about your pregnancy. Here are just a few examples of the questions pregnant women absolutely dread, that we'd all collectively feel fine never hearing every again.
