Would anybody else think it is a little bit, just a smidge bit rude to be called a 'preggo'. I.e in Facebook posts, 'having dinner with xx and xx and the preggo'.

I do have a name.

These are the same people who no doubt say 'the hubby', and 'the boy' for their son.

No Salem. The boy will be "lil man"

My dsis has been calling me Pregasaurus. I don't mind, but I can see how it would be irritating for you.

grin at pregasaurus

I don't think it would bother me.

My neighbour referred to me as Fatty grin

DH referred to me as Pregatron once.

Oh I love Pregatron and Pregasaurus.... I'd get those on tshirts grin

Pregatron and Pregasaurus grin brilliant

My DB took to calling his wife "Pregnantia" when she was pregnant. She is the loveliest person in the world but even she was a bit unimpressed.

Argh. People who describe themselves as 'preggo' make me want to gouge my eyes out. I'm guessing the ladies that are 'preggo' go on to have a 'lil man' or 'lil lady' . Equally criminal.

I got "preggers" my whole pregnancy grin

A new member of staff being introduced. This is Xx she's our accounts person, this is yy our receptionist, this is zz our sales manager and this is Tibba. She's pregnant. hmm

I refer to myself as Preggo but would NEVER call my child "lil man"

Anyway op it wouldn't really bother me I'd presume they were just being affectionate.

StarryIllusion Tue 05-Jul-16 13:41:16

I hate that word. Preggo. Its just so...chav.

BlackeyedSusan Tue 05-Jul-16 13:48:19

do they use crimbo and hubby as well? <shudder>

I feel you. It is very annoying that people seem to forget I'm a friend, sister, auntie, girl, HUMAN and not just an incubator. Jokes about whether or not I can see my feet or touch my toes or stupid questions like "do you feel like you're going to topple over" or "do you wake up and forget until you try and move and can't" are just a bit insensitive

Our cat went out on the razz for 3 nights. DH eyes my 4.5 months pregnant belly and says "you've eaten him, haven't you?"

Fecker! grin

I'm laughing at some of these :-)

LizzieVereker Tue 05-Jul-16 14:21:19


That is even worse than "Having dinner with this one", and the "this one" crap makes my soul hurt, so I feel for you.
