1. Can I touch it?
Let me put it this way. If I wouldn’t have welcomed your hands on my body pre-pregnancy, I definitely won’t now.
2. Are you sure you’re not having twins?
Thanks. So I look like a whale then.
3. Aren’t you terrified of giving birth?
Yep, pretty much. Thanks for the reminder.
4. You’ve got quite the waddle now, haven’t you?!
Way to make a girl feel self-conscious…

5. You look tiny
Great, now I’ll spend the next 24 hours worrying that there is something seriously wrong with my unborn child.
6. You look MASSIVE
Just get out.
7. Have fun being designated driver!
Erm. Since when was it been okay to laugh in the face of a pregnant person’s sobriety?
8. Phew. We all just thought you’d just got fat
Great, so I actually just look like I’ve just put on two stone as opposed to fallen pregnant? Wonderful.

9. Wheeeey. Get in, girl.
Ew, no. Funnily enough, we’re not really in the market for crude sex jokes right now.

10. You look ready to pop
Yes, I look like I’m housing a baby hippo right now, and no, I have NO IDEA why I haven’t given birth yet either. Cheers for noticing.
11. Are you sure you should be doing that?
HINT: Never try telling a pregnant person what they can or can’t do. It won’t go down well.
12. Your face looks so full!
Thanks, I already felt fat. But this has helped loads.
13. How are you feeling?
Please, just ask me what I had for lunch today. ANYTHING but another question about my morning sickness/babies/the bump…
14. Brace yourself – you’re going to get NO sleep soon
No kidding Sherlock, I thought babies slept through the night?
