    15 Tweets That Confirm Pregnant Women Are Not To Be Trifled With

    They can burst into tears or throat punch you at any given moment.

    1. First, know a pregnant woman's attitude can change week by week:

    12 weeks pregnant: I’m going to be a pleasant, happy pregnant woman. I am master of my hormones and discomfort. My husband’s friends will be jealous of my pleasantness. 39 weeks pregnant: I swear to god, how many times have I asked you NOT to cough like that!?

    2. And moment to moment:

    A YouTube video made me laugh until I cried, which quickly became real crying, then I coughed until I puked. *waves hand* Behold pregnancy.

    3. Do not, under any circumstance, comment on their diet:

    My Obgyn suggested I cut carbs to maintain a healthier pregnancy weight. Frankly, I'd rather cut the Obgyn.

    4. How long they've been pregnant:

    "it seems like you have been pregnant forever" o really it seems like u have been blocked because i am petty

    5. Or how tired they are:


    6. You should, however, learn to slowly back out of a room:

    Get pregnant so you can say fun and affirming things to yourself like "Stop being crazy!" and "Why am I crying right now?!".

    7. And be prepared for a tongue lashing:

    me: i'm salty me when i'm pregnant: i'm being salty for two

    8. Why are they like this? Well, they're uncomfortable:

    Yelp review for pregnancy: 1/5 stars Took way too long Overpriced Super uncomfortable & crowded Aesthetically just very bad No alcohol

    9. And their emotions are ON EDGE:

    For those wondering how far along I am, I'm at the stage of pregnancy where I can't look at a dog without crying. #PregnancyProblems

    10. Which is why you should never, ever take their parking spaces:

    If you ever want to overcome your fear of dying, you should just steal a parking spot from a pregnant woman.

    11. Or tell them you loved being pregnant:

    The next woman that tells me how much they loved being pregnant is getting throat punched. #pregnancysucks

    12. Baby shower guests should tread lightly:

    Slightly more accurate baby shower card: "Sry you can't drink or fit in pants and your back hurts, but here's a present that's not for you!"

    13. But the partners of pregnant women must be especially alert:

    Pregnancy hormones make you want to either rip your husband's clothes off or his head off. There is literally nothing in between.

    14. The partner in this case study, for example, is not believed to have survived the nine months:

    Me: What would look better with this, tennis shoes or boots? Husband: It doesn’t really matter, you’re just going to look super pregnant regardless. Me: Husband: Me: Husband: Me: Husband: Me: Husband: I am so sorry.

    15. Lastly, if you don't make space for pregnant women on public transport, you WILL regret it:

    Well it finally happened in my 8th month of pregnancy, I just sat on a man’s hand and bag when he wouldn’t move them off the last spare seat on the bus. We’re now sharing a very quiet ride.
