What not to say to a pregnant woman:
“Wow. You’re getting big.”
“Are you sure you’re not having twins?”
“You look tired.”
“You’re due when??”
And my personal favorite of all time: “You must be having a boy. You’re getting prettier in the face.”
What to say to a pregnant woman:
“You look great.”
I don’t care if you have to think of “great” in the sense of “huge, weighty, or substantial” in order to make it ring true in your mind. If you feel compelled to share your thoughts on a woman’s gestational state, this is The Only Appropriate Comment To Make.
Say it with a smile, and you will make her day.
Cue “The More You Know” theme music and star swoop.
