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?”
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?
