Are you expecting twins?

Do you know who the father is?

How much weight have you gained?

You look like you are ready to pop!

Should you be eating that?

Should you be eating so much food?

Are you sure its not twins?

That's a weird name.

Why would you have another one?

Can I feel your tummy?

Are your feet always that fat?

You look so tired!

The worst thing that anyone said to me while I was pregnant:

"Are you hiding a pumpkin patch under that?" (This was after my daughter was born!)
Heather R., Provo

"Are your ankles always that big?"
Clarissa A, Springville

"Your hips are a lot bigger now that you are pregnant!"
Jaime D, Ogden
