Many of these names I can handle: anticipating, carrying a child, expecting, fruitful, gestating, in family way, with child...
However, I HATE when people call me prego or preggers. I am not a jar of spaghetti sauce, thank you. I am not some dim-witted, knocked up girl. I am pregnant. When I hear someone say (or wear a shirt saying) that they are "prego," it just makes me want to gag. It sounds like a teenager (and really, no offense to teen mothers here...it just sounds immature).
I've been meaning to post on this forever, but today I was reading another blog and the woman said she was "prego." *throw up here* I don't know why, but this really just is like nails on a chalk board. When I announce my pregnancy, I can't stand when people put stuff on my Facebook page like, "oh congrats! I didn't know you were prego." Yuck.
I'm sorry if you like that term, really, I am. I think it just doesn't make pregnancy sound like the blessing it is.
That's my rant for the day.
