Young And Pregnant. Let The Rudeness Begin.

Note: I’m not pregnant, sorry for the confusion! This post is about the pregnancy with our 22 month old.

Seeing those two pink lines instantly appear on the two pregnancy tests I took? Best thing ever. Calling Greg up while he was in class (college) taking a test? Best thing ever. But when Greg and I announced our pregnancy with Jayden, we got some pretty rude comments. The general rule for replying to a pregnancy announcement is saying “Congratulations” or expressing some sort of happiness, no ifs, ands, or buts.

Some people didn’t get the memo, but I have decided not to publish those comments for a number of reasons.

When a woman announces her pregnancy, the only thing that should come out of your mouth is Congratulations! You can think/assume what you want, but keep it to yourself! Your rudeness can be detrimental to both mom and baby!


What are some rude things that have been said to you after announcing your pregnancy?

    I got pregnant before I graduated high school and I really didn’t announce it to anyone until after I graduated. One of my friends said, “So, you’re just like everyone else around here..”

    I don’t think she meant it in a hurtful way. I believe she was in disbelief and didn’t know what else to say. I don’t think she realized how bad she had hurt my feelings. Nevertheless, she is an outstanding Godmother and I’m blessed to have her by my side for the parenting.

    I live in an area with a LOT of young mums (by which I mean 16 and up) and although I’m 30 and had been trying for five years with my husband, my GP wasn’t all that thrilled. I was 5 weeks pregnant and bleeding heavily and in tears and she said ‘it’s okay if you miscarry. at least you know you can fall pregnant now’. I thought that was pretty rude. and cruel, really!

    I had just turned 20, and had just gotten engaged, when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter. So you can imagine the comments I got. People that didn’t know me, and just SAW me, would ask me things like, “Are you married?” and “Are you going to finish high school?” which was my favorite, because I was 20, not 16!!

  5. … the first time around (last few months of grad school), the worst things said to me came from the daddy-to-be. It’s etched in my memory, and while he’s come around (who wouldn’t with such a beautiful little girl to claim?), I still remember.

    me: We’re pregnant.
    him: Who?
    me: I am pregnant.
    him:You roped me in. I never thought someone who said they loved me would trick me like this.
    me[crying]:Wow…

    Truth told, there was no “trick” and I wasn’t slinging a rope like some cowgirl. Fast forward seven years and it worked out for the better. I saw the real guy. I have an amazing kid. I am blessed. Would-be joy-killers have no place in my life.
