When a new mom becomes pregnant, as a first time mom or even after her fifth child, people love to tell her stories about their pregnancy, give her unsolicited parenting advice or simply say flat out rude comments! After a few months of hearing comments or towards the end of her pregnancy, she might lash out or fire off some fiery words after she’s heard “omg you’re so big” for the 100th time. We don’t understand why other people don’t think before they speak, especially to a hormonal pregnant woman. Here’s a list of things to never say to a pregnant woman. Also, for all of you pregnant mamas out there, we’ve included a list of comebacks as well (you’ll thank us later!).

With so many cute rompers, jumpsuits, bows, hair ties, swaddles and other newborn clothing items out there, it can be overwhelming to decide what exactly you need, and how much of each clothing item is necessary! Also, if you’re expecting a new baby, you’re most likely being targeted by many brands on Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook with the most adorable outfits and might be impulsively spending money on really expensive items that your babe can only wear for about a month or so.

You’re supposed to have an amazing glow (although I really think it’s just a little glistening from all of the sweat thanks to hormones), your hair is thicker and fuller, and you might even have a nice new amazing rack to show off.

However, there are plenty of not so pretty symptoms, aches, and ailments that you’ll have to deal with during the pregnancy that you might not have expected.
