What Not to Say to a Pregnant Woman
What is it about a baby bump that inspires such insensitive comments? Here are 13 things you should never say to someone who’s expecting
Are you gaining enough weight?
While many of the most clueless comments come from people subtly judging you for packing on pregnancy pounds, the naturally slender are not immune. You may think you’re paying a mama-to-be a compliment when you say, “You’re so small” or “I can barely see your belly!” but you may only be stoking her worries about the growth of her baby. Everyone carries differently; let her OB/GYN worry about her weight gain. If you want to make her feel good about her pregnancy appearance, simply tell her that she looks great.
