Before she welcomed her daughter Yardley Evans earlier today, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly gave the world some tips on things that we should all avoid saying to a pregnant woman.
What are the Top 5 things you should NEVER say to a pregnant mom?
Don’t be a Whiner! “Don’t tell us how fat or out of shape you feel,” Kelly writes. “We’re packing at least 25 extra pounds as we deal with nausea, back pain, swelling, and a host of other unmentionables … and frankly, we just don’t want to hear it.”
Mean Comments Hurt Our Fellings! “Don’t tell us ‘it looks like we’re having a girl,’ she adds. “We all know what that means — they say “girls steal your beauty.” Well, they don’t steal your hearing!”
Jokes Aren’t Always Funny! “Don’t ‘kid’ us about our condition,” she advises. “‘Wide load coming thru!’ is not funny. ‘Waddle on out of here’ does not amuse.”
Don’t Guess the Due Date! You’ll almost always be wrong and we’ll take it as a dig at how big we are!
Never Comment On Our Bodies! “Don’t comment on our bodies. Ever. Really,” Kelly adds. “Especially when we’re pregnant. What is it about a baby bump that makes people feel it’s okay to say things like “God! You are big!!!”??? And don’t say we look small either. That just makes us worry that something’s wrong with our baby.”
All I can say is AMEN Sister!
