In a effort to give Neriah a much deserved break from all of the “mommy ‘n’ me” posts, today I’m bringing you a different type of entry.
It’s very much still, “maman et moi” but a different concept. See, this one involves my “in utero” child ( see, still mommy and me) ;)
I wanted to dedicate this post, to the ladies who have carried children and the ones currently carrying children.
You see, as pregnant women, we deal with all types of aches, and discomfort , so words of encouragement are always welcomed, unless of course you want to feel the wrath of a pregnant woman. Hell hath no fury like a woman with child, forget scorned!
So today, in not so typical mommy and me fashion, I bring you 10 things you should never say/do to a pregnant woman.
uno – stranger danger – respect her personal space. If you are a complete stranger, don’t touch her growing belly.
dos – big belly – “how far along are you, wow you are so big… Are you sure you are not carrying multiples?” – ummm yeah pretty sure.
tres– gender reveal – “so what are you having?” -Oh we’re going to wait to find out. “you should totally find out and then tell me”. – Umm ok?!
cuatro– eating habits – “are you going to eat all that?” Why yes, yes I am.
cinco- drinking habits- ” hey wanna come out for some drinks?” Ummm yeah right away!
seis – for my African people – What are you going to name your child? Eh? What kind of name is that o? Do you think you’re grand-mada and grand-fada will be able to pronounce that? No no no! You mast name him/her Assaba Maousi Memele*
siete – “So are you gonna have another one after this?” Oh, umm can I drop this load first?
ocho – “you should totally have a natural birth, I did it and it’s best for you and the baby because the experience is so magical.” OH OK sure! I will let my OBGYN know you suggested that.
nueve– “you shouldn’t wear that while you’re pregnant!” Oh ok?!
diez– “oh my you’ve gained weight” Ummm I’m carrying a human… There’s a human in my belly.
I’ll be the first to say, that prior to becoming a mom, I’ve said a few of these things to fellow preggos so don’t feel so bad, this is all in good fun. LOL
