The only one I found really horrible was the one about "It's still early" regarding a 6 week pregnant mama w/ twins. All the others? Stop being sensitive.

I get comments all the time. I had an unexplained full term stillbirth last September and now I'm pregnant again. People have no filter. They had none after my loss and still have none.

You forgot "was it planned?" which my mother-in-law asked when my husband and I told his parents the news...I ignored the question.

When my grandma found out I was having twins she was talking to my father about it and said "Isnt nature a bitch?" I'm still not sure how to take that one.

Most of them weren't abnormally rude, just kind of obnoxious. Every single woman gets the questions like "haven't you had that baby yet?” while pregnant. Asking if someone is going to breastfeed isn't the height of rudeness, it's just kind of nosey.

I don't have the patience to click through, but my boss said to me when I told her: "you're not going to keep it, are you?"

My mom said to me when I told her I was pregnant with my daughter.."I wish it was Angela". Angela is my sister. Then a year later when my daughter was 3 months old I was pregnant again and my mom said once more "I wish it was Angela". Makes someone feel real great.
