Re: What's the rudest thing someone said to you when they found out you're pregnant?

I have four children and I've gotten some rude comments. I think the most popular was, "Don't you know what causes that?"

But my favorite comment--it was just so hilarious--was from a neighbor I hardly saw anymore. I ran into her at the grocery store and told her I was expecting my fourth and she said, "Well, I'm going to pray for you because your fourth one is bound to be ugly!" I was and didn't take offense at all because I knew she thought all my children were gorgeous (which of course they are!)

Re: What's the rudest thing someone said to you when they found out you're pregnant?

My friend's dad that I've known since I was six, did the whole eyerolling, "Another one? Why? Why would you do that? Sheesh...", shook his head, threw up his hands, and walked away. He was really mad. I was totally surprised. This guy has three boys. I was expecting my 3rd boy. He is Catholic. I am Catholic. That was the rudest one I have gotten from someone I knew.

I am totally going to remember that response from VeryChic for next time I have a run in like that.

When my older brother found out I was pregnant with #6 he responded "You're going to go bankrupt!" lol Umm.. OK... he has one kid and they live with my parents.. so I guess he figures if he can't afford 1, no way can we afford 6.

Re: What's the rudest thing someone said to you when they found out you're pregnant?

I think the rudest was saying nothing. We told my in-laws about #3 and they literally stared at us, said nothing, then changed the subject. No congrats, no anything. Then later my MIL said we are outgrowing our house (we have a 3 bedroom house-don't get what's so strange abt 2 kids in one room especially when the one room is the whole upstairs with a private bath?).

Re: What's the rudest thing someone said to you when they found out you're pregnant?

Oh do I have a doosie!

First some background info: My dad is constantly calling me by my younger sister's name and visa versa. We're 5 years apart. I also don't know my dad's side of the family very well.

So after I had my baby back in 2008, I e-mailed the Yahoo group for my dad's family. I gave all the stats, a short birth story, the works. I thought I had made it sound like the baby was very much planned and very much wanted.

Well a few days later, I open my e-mail and have several e-mails from the same person, one of my dad's cousin's (who is very self-righteous...)

The first one read: I had no idea you were pregnant. Your dad never told me.

The second: I want to send you some things (I was thinking "Yay presents!")

Third e-mail: Printed out, it probably would have been 4 pages of lecturing on how I should be more responsible, I shouldn't be having sex at all, how would I finish highschool now that I had a baby. Your baby should have a father in her life, you're being selfish to keep her. And sent websites, addresses, phone numbers and a PDF pamphlet for a church counseling and adoption agency

I e-mailed back: Ummmm, I'm 23. I've been married 4 years...Baby was a planned project


I was pretty pissed though

Re: What's the rudest thing someone said to you when they found out you're pregnant?

My MIL is notorious for comments that are not so delightful.

With #3 her first comment upon being told was "haven't you figured out what causes that yet?" With #4 it was "humph", and this time when she finally figured it out and asked directly (certainly wasn't telling her on purpose!) it was "Do you just like being pregnant or what" I said, "no not particularly" and she was silent.

I've had people ask if it was planned or an accident, and my mom asked if it was a surprise and why didn't we wait longer. Dh's brother was surprised when he found out I was pg (about five months) and I asked if he just thought I was getting fat (kiddingly) and he said yes!
