1. Was it Planned?

Since when is it okay to interrogate someone about conception? This is not okay. Sure why don’t you just ask, ‘Do you have sex regularly?’ Or ‘Were you using contraception?’!

2. Are you Sure you are not Having Twins?

Most moms-to-be wait until after their first scan before sharing their exciting news, so as a matter a fact we have proof there is only one baby inside. Why don’t you just tell me I look FAT! I’m pretty sure there is only one little person in there. I am NOT having twins!

4. Are you Planning Anymore?

Would you ever let me push this baby out first! But if I’m honest I’m pretty sure the other half has booked in for a vasectomy.

5. I Thought you were Finished?

If I was finished having babies would I pregnant right now? No.

6. Can I Touch your Belly?

How about can I poke you in the face? Unless you are the one who put the baby in here or the one who’ll be taking it out, you cannot touch my belly.
