We’ve all read, said, or overheard them at some point. Insert foot into open mouth. Here’s a rundown of ten things you should never say to a pregnant woman. These things have been said to me, so I know what you’re talking about. Visit this surgery
Were you attempting to conceive again???” When you announce your pregnancy, you get such a pleasant answer. Allow it to wash over you if you hear it. People have differing views about how many children to have and how near they should be. Smile, smile, and slowly walk away. So, do you have a stomach-ache? My friend was sick the whole time she was pregnant.” For the record, this tends to scare pregnant women, particularly first-timers who are still in the first trimester – so if you’re tempted to share this with a pregnant woman, keep it to yourself. And if you happen to hear this as you’re expecting, don’t be concerned. Everyone knows someone who has had morning sickness for the duration of their pregnancy, but this does not happen very often.
So, do you want to know the sex or would you rather be surprised?” Now, asking somebody if they’ll find out if they’re getting a boy or a girl is a completely fair and courteous query. The way some people say this isn’t really respectful, since it makes it sound like it’s best to “just say no” during the ultrasound and wait until the baby is born to find out. Some people believe that knowing the gender spoils the surprise, and they openly express their disapproval of your decision to peek during the sonogram. But, guess what?

You know, you’re not going to photograph the second baby as you did the first.” I’m not sure why anyone feels compelled to tell you this when you’re expecting your second child, but don’t listen to them.
