Yes, Stupid Questions Exist: What Not to Ask a 9-Month Pregnant Mom

BlogHer Original Post

"There's no such thing as a stupid question." Whoever came up with that cliched saying was obviously not a pregnant woman. During my pregnancies, I endured some pretty stupid questions. They only got more and more stupid the closer I came to the end of my pregnancy. Carrie at You're a Good Mom recently shared a list of things you shouldn't say to a mom who is 8.99 months pregnant. Oh, boy, I totally related.

I heard all of these, especially this first one:

"When are you due?"
Does it really matter? I obviously have not had this baby yet, so "due date" no longer means anything. I am "past due." I am thinking of collecting some sort of fine from my doctor. The library does it, and that's just for some stinkin' book. I have been focused on that due date for 9 months now. I think my doctor may have arbitrarily picked a date and given it to me as some experimental form of torture. No, I don't want to talk about it. No, I don't want to discuss it. Unless you're getting me chocolate ice cream, please leave me alone.
