What You Really Don't Want To Hear When You're Pregnant...

Everyone has a war story to share or sage advice to impart. Why won't the world just shhhhhhhhh?

'I'm having more sex...

And feel more sexy now I'm pregnant than I've ever felt before!'
Expand Image

'You can't really eat for two...

That's daft. Your child spends the first six months no bigger than a mango. So you can have the equivalent of an extra apple and a glass of milk.'
Expand Image

'Breastfeeding doesn't burn 500 calories a day...

So don't rely on that to burn off those cheesecakes you're ploughing through, Miss Piggy.'
Expand Image

'Skinny jeans...

And crop tops are the hot look of this season.'
Expand Image

'There's a free...

Champagne bar tonight! Let's go!'
Expand Image

'Do you...

Want to be my bridesmaid?'
Expand Image

'It's...

Triplets!'
Expand Image

'It's best to keep breastfeeding until they're three...

If you want your child to be well-adjusted and intelligent.'
Expand Image

'You mean you haven't...

Started playing Mozart to your belly yet?'
Expand Image

'Sorry, madam, we've run out of Haagen-Dazs...

All we have is frozen yoghurt.'
Expand Image

'What do you mean pregnancy has made you spotty and sweaty?

I feel radiant. I'm positively glowing.'
Expand Image

'Really? That is an...

Interesting choice of name.'
Expand Image

'My boobs fell to the floor...

Like Spaniel's ears after my first pregnancy.'
Expand Image

'I think you're being a bit dramatic talking about your aches and pains...

You're not ill. You're just pregnant.'
Expand Image

'I've found the perfect...

French cheese shop.'
Expand Image

'Stretch marks are Mother Nature's way...

Of tattooing your bravery on you for eternity.'
Expand Image

'I think I'd refer to it as a bit baggy now...

My nether regions, that is.'
Expand Image

'I didn't use any drugs and child birth was a fabulous experience...

She shot out in two hours and I didn't tear. But I had been doing my Kegel's since before I conceived.'
Expand Image

'I used every drug and child birth was a ghastly experience...

She finally came out after 43 hours in labour. And I had been doing my Kegel's since before I conceived.'
Expand Image

'You will never sleep soundly again...

Even when they're 25, you'll be worried about who they've fallen in love with, or how their boss treats them. Any peace of mind you had is essentially gone for ever.'
