Are You Still Pregnant?

Are You Still Pregnant?

YES Welcome!  You may have been redirected here because you asked the question, “Are you still pregnant?” to a family member, friend or co-worker.  Though you meant well, it can be tiresome and difficult for the pregnant person to hear this question repeatedly during the last few weeks or days of pregnancy.  So what can you do instead?  Here are five things you might try. Remind Her She’s Awesome Instead of texting or saying “Have you had the baby?” or “Are you STILL pregnant”?  Or, “Dang, are you not in labor yet, what the heck?”, tell her she’s the most awesome gestating person around!  Congratulate her on nine months of pregnancy, text her to say “Way to gestate and bake that baby!”.  Send encouragement and supportive words.  The last few weeks and days of pregnancy  seem like years, and your gentle encouragement and cheering will go a long ways. Treat Her To A Pedicure Or massage, manicure, or something of that nature.  A text message of “Hey!  Wanna get pedicures and a decaf latte?” will be much more appreciated that questioning her current state of “Still Pregnant”. Bring Food Food is ever appreciated and welcome after a baby comes.  Help stock your friend or family member’s freezer now. Instead of calling to find out if contractions have started or if she’s seeing any bloody show (which is a whole other conversation) call her and see if you can stop by with a frozen casserole.  Let her know you are thinking about her, and want to help stock her fridge so she can focus on Baby instead of the kitchen...
