Some of these remarks are so terrible that you would think they were made up, but they were indeed said to the mothers who reported them to us. Here are the worst pregnancy reviews of any category.
“Everyone knew that you are pregnant, it appears for about five months”
“Oh yes? Thank you so much! But I'm about five weeks pregnant…" Another mom has been called a whale and countless women are being told they're fat or huge. Are you expecting twins? You will explode! Are you sure there's just one in there?
It's a bit like the famous "are you going to give birth soon? when you have about four months left before giving birth.
With the epidural, you won't be a real mom
As if pain was a guarantee of motherhood, this mom was told she should give birth without medication because otherwise, her delivery doesn't really matter.
It's okay if you lose it, you'll make another one
We understand that the person wanted to play it down, but when the motherwas completely at rest with placental abruption and contractions, that's really not what she wanted to hear!
Also heard: It doesn't matter if you lose that one: it's like trying to quit smoking: you start over if it doesn't work this time. And also: You already have one, at worst if you lose this one, it doesn't matter…
She shouldn't spread her thighs
Yes, someone really said that to a pregnant woman who the cashier wanted to give priority to in a long line. I guess the person was thinking that such a “privilege” should not be granted so easily! It must be said that we do not always understand where these people are coming from.
Another woman told us this: I am 36 weeks pregnant and I have my 22 month old daughter, I go to the store and a young lady tells me because she took the pregnant woman parking lot and that I told him it would have been nice to leave it for those who really need it "You just have to stay at home with your kid if you can walk."
“I hope this is the last”
Another comment that raises many questions. Is this person implying that three children is really too much, that we have already missed too many days of work or that the mother will not be able to take care of them? In all three cases, we want to tell him to mind his own business.
Pregnant with my sixth, instead of mesay congratulations, I was told: well, give others a chance…
“Another girl? Poor you! »
Relatives like it when there are boys and girls in every family. This is why everyone talks about the "little couple" and they seem to wonder if we will have children until we have at least a boy and a girl.
- My brother said to me: It's good that you're doing guys, guys it can go a long way… uh today it doesn't change anything! A girl can do a lot of things with her life too…
- When I announced that I was expecting my 2nd son, I was told: oh no! These are things that happen… Like I announced he was dead…
- My boyfriend's family, when we announced that our first child would be a girl: "Ah well, it's fun like a girl. But hey, if it had been a guy, he would have been really ours!"
- Why a 3rd? You already have a boy and a girl! Well, sometimes it's a dog or a Martian, you never know!
“Are you going to insist on breastfeeding him too? »
This remark was followed by “you will neglect the other two if you breastfeed”. Like it's really disturbing to everyone within a mile that a mother intends to breastfeed.
- Sir: "Are you going to breastfeed?" Me: I would love to. Sir: "Hiiiiiiiii, you're young, don't do that, youscrape a pair of boobs ca!
- You shouldn't breastfeed… You will become your baby's slave.
“You can still lose it”
Usually after three months, you feel confident because the risk of miscarriage is really lower, but this mom felt less confident (and a slightly irritated) when someone told her not to believe too much in her chances of a good pregnancy, even after six months of gestation.
“It is obvious that you are expecting a girl; daughters steal their mother's beauty”
When you want to tell a pregnant woman that she is much less beautiful than before she was pregnant, you might as well go straight to it, right? That's what this person seemed to be thinking.
Not to mention those who say: You look really tired!! ''. Er… I just spent 15 minutes of my life putting on make-up, and getting pretty, and I think I'm radiant pregnant and you just told me that??!! NO!
“Are you doing this for the money? »
Someone who would have children for money can't really count and someone who makes a comment like that really can't turn their tongue in his mouth before speaking.
“You are too young to have a child”
When you're 21 and expecting a baby, or look younger than your age, you don't need to be robbed of what little self-confidence you have. we have. Forthe delicacy, we'll come back…
“Good range! »
The mother to whom this comment was made still responded very well by saying "it's nice, I'll let you know when I've calved". Especially since another mom was told exactly that! My great-grandfather to my cousin: "When are you due to calve there?"
“Are you going to complete this one? »
Moms who have ever had a miscarriage remember this. No one needs to remind them during their pregnancy, but this person obviously didn't get the memo.
“Was this on purpose? »
Or his cousin "Now that he's here, are you going to keep him?" ". Are you gonna keep it? How much time do you have left to change your mind? Was it wanted? or again: Yes, but you haven't reached 3 months yet, you might lose it!
Several mothers who were told this kind of remark felt that their child was not welcome and did not appreciate it at all.
