    7 Annoying Things That Happen When You're Pregnant

    These will go down well.

    1. Strangers touching your bump.

    There’s nothing a pregnant person likes more than a random stranger rubbing their stomach without asking.

    2. Being told how enormous you look.

    People love to be told they look fat, and pregnant people are no exception. Try bringing in some exaggerated hand gestures to really emphasise how whale-like they are.

    3. Being told your bump is too small.

    This makes you worry there's something wrong with the baby, yay.

    4. Someone judging your baby names.

    It's important to let the pregnant person know you strongly dislike the names they’re thinking of. Ideally, you should taint the names so badly, they have to go back to the drawing board and start again.

    5. Your friend telling you about the person they know who had fourth-degree tears and nearly bled to death in childbirth.

    The closer to the due date, the more welcome this intervention will be.

    6. People commenting on your boobs.

    You must let the pregnant person know that despite the fact that they are enormous and whale-like, you find their new, bigger boobs extremely sexy.

    7. People telling you parenthood is the worst thing that ever happened to them, and they're sorry your life is over.
