18 Rudest Pregnancy Comments We've Ever Heard

frownLeave it to family members, strangers, and friends to pretty much ruin a woman's pregnancy with their insensitive comments. 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 ...

Those are pretty awful. I didn't really even look pregnant so I got to bypass the stupidity lol.

My dad said this to me when I told him!!!


"My father-in-law with my last (second) pregnancy when we told them we were expecting: 'So you guys aren't smart enough to figure out what causes this yet?' Ass. Congratulations would have been just fine."

People need to chill out. Sticks and stones...And, the best payback is knowing my boobs look every bit as great as they did when I was pregnant and that was YEARS ago, and they're all mine. wink

I ALWAYS get "Are you sure it isn't twins." and "How can you only be 6 months?"  I have always carried all my weight in my belly and this pregnancy has not stayed away from that trend.  So I have a huge belly!  I also have a coworker who asks me "Are you eating again?" and "Look at misses waddles."  The worst part is that my job is very physical and half the time when I am going to eat I am starving and barely able to think anymore.  And I waddle the worst when I am in pain!  I just have no humor when I am in pain.

Rude, but you can come up with sarcastic comments to fire back. However, if someone asked me if I was sure about who the daddy was, that person would be getting a nose job courtesy of my fist.

My husband's best friend always asked since I was showing early if I was having twins. He did that because they knew someone who thought they were having one girl, and ended up with twin boys. I would laugh and say "nope just one big baby!" to him.

My husband always say when we hear about a friend who is pregnant, "they know what causes that" but he is a big Mash fan and they said that on the show.

A lot of these I've heard...people can be so rude. If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.

I got a ton of obnoxious comments, but the one that took the cale was the old toothless redneck who called out to me across a hospital parking lot, "Hey, are you knocked up?" To get the full effect, imagine a really redneck looking woman with about half her teeth and a ciggarette dangling from her mouth.
