Is it me or do a lot of people seem to give their unwanted opinions about the size of other people’s families?

Just yesterday, a friend had announced her fifth pregnancy and honestly the comments I was reading made me roll my eyes harder than I ever rolled them before.

Never is it ok to make comments like, “You’re crazy, another one?” Or how about “Aren’t you too old for a baby?”

Whoa people. 

Here is a list we collected of some phrases people have said after someone has announced their pregnancy:

“seriously, another baby?”

“Wow you’re going to have your hands full.”

“Oh I hope you FINALLY get that (insert opposite gender of baby they currently have) “

“Awe now your family is complete” – This one can come off with good intentions but never assume people are done having babies unless they explicitly say so

“Was this planned?”

“Obviously the birth control failed”

” Oh No!”


We could go on but I think you get the point.

Has anyone ever said anything negative to you after you’ve announced your pregnancy?
