Being pregnant, no matter how you got there, is a journey. Is it positive? Of course. Does it have its moments of pure agony? Yup. And a lot of those emotions stem from the comments people make about pregnancy. It doesn't matter if they are nice comments or ones that make you feel like crap, knowing the too common comments people make about pregnancy (and how to respond) can save you a lot of energy.
Because if there's one thing people love to talk about, it's pregnancy. I can't tell you how many strangers stopped me during my grocery shopping to either comment on my belly, ask me how I was doing, or share some story from their own pregnancy that they thought I could relate to. (Heads up: hearing about other's pregnancy horrors does not make you feel great.) But a lot of people simply wanted to comment on my pregnancy. They wanted to tell me congratulations, they wanted to tell me I looked beautiful, and they wanted to tell me I looked like I could explode at any moment. In general, nobody offended me too much and I think it's because I knew they weren't being malicious — they were just commenting.
So you don't become the flustered, angry pregnant woman society wants you to be, keep these 13 too common comments people make about pregnancy in mind so you know how to respond to them. Trust me, you'll hear them at some point and wish like hell you had this list so you didn't totally lose it, whether the comment was good or bad.
