I got the RUDEST comments and questions from people during my pregnancy. I certainly don’t miss that aspect of it!

lesbemums says:

I just don’t know what some people think? I also don’t know why pregnancy invites odd behaviour from other people, y’know?

DeCaf says:

That sounds obnoxious.

lesbemums says:

Which bit? lol

DeCaf says:

The strangers, although you can always reply back to them “excuse me, do I know you?” I guess dealing with your coworkers asking very personal questions is worse since you can’t really brush them off curtly.

lesbemums says:

Exactly. With co-workers, i tend to find giving a neutral, nonchelant answer tends to help and sometimes make then feel a little awkward. I just worry im being too sensitive sometimes.

DeCaf says:

You’re not at all. If someone came up to nonpregnant women and ask half of those questions they’d end up with a restraining order.

lesbemums says:

Hahaha. True.

Two weirdest/most inappropriate questions I experienced:
1) the guy who was finishing our floor asked my wife how I got pregnant.
2) the pediatrician doing the first check of the Bug, when I was in the bathroom, asked my wife first if I was a surrogate, then if we had used a donor. Best part of that one was that our donor was standing right there. We make fun of her to this day.

lesbemums says:

Omg!! Thats awful. At least i know most of the people who ask me stupid questions. Yours sound awful – how on earth did you answer?

I actually don’t remember what my wife told the for guy. I should ask her. She told the pediatrician yes. Very slowly. And we came up with a way too answer in the future: “why no, when you love each other very much, that’s how babies are made!”

lesbemums says:

Ha! We started explaining the birds and the bees when a few people asked us “how it works” with us. When they then laughed and said “you know what i mean” id get quite arsey and say “no, i dont, it works the same for us… You do the math!”
