This month’s ‘5 Things That Fired Me Up‘ has been fondly renamed ‘5 Things You Should Never Say To A Pregnant Lady’. (DISCLAIMER: If you have ever said any of these things to me, or to any other pregnant lady, this is a no-judging zone. I promise. I do love you!)
1) I thought you were using birth control?
Not only is this question terribly invasive, it’s also a moot point.
2) Don’t you know what causes that?
Nope. We just kept picking out wallpaper and – BAM! – one day I got pregnant. Weird, right?
3) Are you sure you’re feeling okay?
Yes. If feeling utterly exhausted with crazy mood swings and a urge to vomit in the mornings is ‘feeling okay’ then, yes, I’m feeling pretty okay.
4) Was is an accident?
Nope. We were pretty intentional about picking out that wallpaper.
5) Your whole life is about to change.
Yes, thank you for that. Thanks a lot. I’m going to go eat some Ben & Jerry’s now.
