10 Things You Should Never Say To Your Pregnant Wife

  1. Well yes, you are putting on weight! But to be fair to you, you haven’t trained in ages and have eaten whatever you wanted for 6 months. Given all that, you look ok.
  2. Whilst watching “One Born Every Minute”. Oh my god, the stretch marks on that woman are horrendous. No amount of cream is getting rid of them.
  3. When the baby comes, I’ll be ok to sleep in the spare room won’t I, so you can breastfeed and I can get some sleep?
  4. When the baby comes, I’ll still be ok to go out a few nights a week with my friends, right?
  5. Actually, now you mention it, I have noticed a few hormonal changes in you.
  6. You don’t look pregnant in that dress, just a bit overweight which is a good thing because the bump is so small.
  7. Are we still on for 5 children?
  8. You’re such a tough woman, I reckon you could give birth in the morning and be back to work by the afternoon.
  9. I don’t want your breasts to sag after having all these kids.
  10. Landmark pregnancy milestone reached. Those are officially cankles, do you mind if I tweet them?

I have to be honest, they were all said tongue in cheek and they were taken in jest (well most of them anyway). I’m always given a wide berth with the stupid things I say. Most of the time they manage to raise a wry smile.

On the flip side, here’s a great link to things you should say to a pregnant woman:

  2. As the mother of seven, I approve this list. Had my husband ever said any one of these things, I’d be a single mom today.

    Totes diggin’ your blog. Keep up the great work!

      1. Haha. I was trying to have a serious conversation with my husband about our options with a VBAC and out of the god-lovin’ blue he says “yeah your face is getting bigger” meaning I’ve put on some weight and it isn’t as thin anymore. Well thank you for that wise bit of insight! I have a month to go so I guess it is a possibility! Thankfully I have a fantastic sense of humour most of the time…
