I read a very comical article (read it!) from a gigantic pregnant woman yesterday.That sounds mean of me to say, but I think she would agree.
Which brings me to the point of this article I read--some things you just shouldn't say to a pregnant woman.
Things like "whoa are you having twins?" and "how big are your stretch marks?" are probably not okay.
I'm all for saying nice things like the author of the article suggests, but...sometimes an obligatory compliment seems so misplaced. For instance, "you look great" doesn't really seem appropriate at this point of my life. I think I look great, but that is because I love having a baby belly, not because I think I'm skinny and don't need maternity clothes so who exactly are you trying to fool complimenter? Maybe I'll change my mind in 5 months and 35 pounds, but for now I just want people to give it to me straight--and maybe with a cookie.
