#1 First, know a pregnant woman’s attitude can change week by week
12 weeks pregnant: I’m going to be a pleasant, happy pregnant woman. I am master of my hormones and discomfort. My husband’s friends will be jealous of my pleasantness.

39 weeks pregnant: I swear to god, how many times have I asked you NOT to cough like that!?

#2 And moment to moment
A YouTube video made me laugh until I cried, which quickly became real crying, then I coughed until I puked.

*waves hand* Behold pregnancy.

#3 Do not, under any circumstance, comment on their diet
My Obgyn suggested I cut carbs to maintain a healthier pregnancy weight.

Frankly, I’d rather cut the Obgyn.

#4 How long they’ve been pregnant
“it seems like you have been pregnant forever” o really it seems like u have been blocked because i am petty

#5 Or how tired they are
H- Why are you so tired?

#6 You should, however, learn to slowly back out of a room
Get pregnant so you can say fun and affirming things to yourself like “Stop being crazy!” and “Why am I crying right now?!”.

#7 And be prepared for a tongue lashing
me: i’m salty
me when i’m pregnant: i’m being salty for two

#8 Why are they like this? Well, they’re uncomfortable
Yelp review for pregnancy:
1/5 stars
Took way too long
Super uncomfortable & crowded
Aesthetically just very bad
No alcohol

#9 And their emotions are ON EDGE
For those wondering how far along I am, I’m at the stage of pregnancy where I can’t look at a dog without crying.

#10 Which is why you should never, ever take their parking spaces
If you ever want to overcome your fear of dying, you should just steal a parking spot from a pregnant woman.

#11 Or tell them you loved being pregnant
The next woman that tells me how much they loved being pregnant is getting throat punched.

#12 Baby shower guests should tread lightly
Slightly more accurate baby shower card: “Sry you can’t drink or fit in pants and your back hurts, but here’s a present that’s not for you!”

#13 But the partners of pregnant women must be especially alert
Pregnancy hormones make you want to either rip your husband’s clothes off or his head off.

There is literally nothing in between.

#14 The partner in this case study, for example, is not believed to have survived the nine months
Me: What would look better with this, tennis shoes or boots?
Husband: It doesn’t really matter, you’re just going to look super pregnant regardless.
Husband: I am so sorry.

#15 Lastly, if you don’t make space for pregnant women on public transport, you WILL regret it
Well it finally happened in my 8th month of pregnancy, I just sat on a man’s hand and bag when he wouldn’t move them off the last spare seat on the bus. We’re now sharing a very quiet ride.
