• "Pregnancy is a very specific 40 weeks in a woman's life in which such strange, yet similar things happen to all of us carrying the load.  For some reason, the un-pregnant among us constantly feel the need to comment on our current state.  This site was created to share our horror stories, make each other laugh, and come together as a community of women whose skinny jeans may never fit again."

I was in the checkout line at our local market, pregnant. A man next to me was unabashedly staring at my belly with a horrified look on his face. What? Had I spilled my lunchtime burger condiments on myself for the 4th day in a row? Finally he piped up and said ” WOW. You are HUGE! How many weeks left?” I looked down at my belly (sans beef drippings and mayo) and nervously giggled and then replied, “3 1/2 MONTHS left!” Wonder if he heard me quietly whisper “douche” to myself as me and my “huge” pregnant ass waddled off. And then waddled back because I had left my donut holes.– TORI SPELLING

When I was pregnant with Frankie (I was only like 4 months pregnant) Aaron Sorkin said “Are you sure there aren’t two in there?” at a press conference in an auditorium filled with people. He was kind of kidding but I know he also thought I was already too big for 4 months. He was always asking me if I was sure I wasn’t having twins. -AMANDA PEET

“A friend told me, ‘I think it’s a girl because of how wide you look from the back.’ ” -SARA GILBERT

Don’t try to guess the gender of the baby, especially if you think she’s having a girl.  You are essentially telling a pregnant woman that her ass looks fat because all of the pregnancy myths say that women gain weight on the bottom when they’re having girls.

People would always say “So this is the home stretch for you.” Then I would say, “Well, no I’m just six months.” Then I would have to make them feel better and say that I’m carrying twins. -GARCELLE BEAUVAIS

Don’t ask a pregnant woman if she’s having twins.  In essence, you’re saying that the woman is so enormous and you can’t imagine that she’s only having one child at a time.

After puking my guts out for an hour at 3 A.M., I crawled back into bed next to my husband and he said, “Next time could you close the door.’” -Susan Rovner

Don’t ask a pregnant woman how her husband is doing! Really.  Who cares how he’s doing?  She’s the one carrying the load.  He just planted the seed.  His job is done.  He’s not watching his body morph into some freakish shape that seems against all the laws of nature.
