Seriously, what are some people thinking when they make these remarks and ask these questions of expectant moms? We have no idea but we've rounded up some doozies from the CafeMom community, anonymously of course, to marvel at the cluelessness all around ...

She decides to tell me that Candice, another cashier, just went into labor yesterday and gave birth to a stillborn after a full-term seemingly healthy pregnancy. This was with my first pregnancy, and I thought, well, if I was nervous before you sure DIDN'T put my mind at ease any!"

Every day for a few weeks they asked the same thing. I was like, yeah I checked myself out of the hospital after I gave birth so I could come here. OBVIOUSLY I didnt have the baby yet!"

    "When people see me reading a book or just relaxing: "Oh you better get in all your reading now because in a few months you aren't going to be able to do that anymore.' "
