OMG, You’re Pregnant?

Because I had some time to kill I thought I’d list of a few FUN reactions I’ve gotten to people hearing that I’m pregnant. If you’re a mommy-to-be or have kids of your own I’d love for you to share some of the more “bizarre” reactions you got when you shared your happy news. This is such a fun time and I love swopping stories with fellow baby-bumpers!

Along with the normal “Congratulations” comments, these were some of the more creative and memorable!

  • “OMG, NO WAY!”
  • “No kidding!”
  • My brother hung up on me when I called to tell him. He hung up on me and called my parents on their house phone to get confirmation that it was actually true. Silly blubber.
  • “Um, were you trying to get pregnant?”
  • Many people looked straight at my stomach as if they thought they may have overlooked a new bump.
  • “SHUT UP!”
  • “WOW” followed by a tackle of a hug. This one was compliments of our friend Dave. 🙂
  • “NO YOU’RE NOT!”
  • Lots of, “Aw, you’re going to make such a great mommy” and “Motherhood is the best, you’re going to love it!”
  • “SHIT!” – that would be my mother’s reaction. Followed by tears of joy and a huge hug! Don’t worry, it was a good ‘shit’.  We ended up calling little manatee the little Shitzel just for kicks thanks to her memorable reaction!
  • “I’m going to kill you if you’re telling me this via email” – my friend Layna. When I told her while I was at work after trying to call her like 4 times the night before and she was a loser and in bed already!
  • “OMG, you’re pregnant?” – most of the people who are finding out now rather than when we announced it a few weeks ago!
  • “You’re going to be such a cute pregnant girl” – let’s hope so!
  • “AHHHH! I’m freaking out” – Our friend Vinnie who proceeded to tag two other Lost Colony friends in his Facebook post to make sure that they were freaking out too!
  • “YAY! Welcome to the mommy club” – my sweet sweet friend Lindsie.
  • “That’s basically going to be the most talented baby in the world” – many of our theater/ dance friends
  • “Was this an oops baby?” – seriously… who asks that?
  • “Congrats, I must see belly pictures immediately” – basically all of my girlfriends!
  • “Congrats, you should name it Shaun” – Shaun, another Lost Colony friend
  • “Prepare yourself for inappropriate belly touching at the beach!” – my cousin Ellen!
  • “I can’t believe it!”
  • “But you’re so young!”
  • “You’re going to be a mom!”
  • “We are ensuring the success of the dance team in 2025.” – my friend Jennifer from High School dance team. About 1/2 of my freshman year team has had babies or is having babies!
  • “And you’re still dancing?”
  • “December babies are the best!”
  • “Oh wow, how long have you been married?” – ummm… long enough, thanks
  • “Poor thing, has to share it’s birthday with Jesus!”
  • “Congrats Sara, now I get to bug you about belly pictures!” – my friend Sara who I’ve been CONSTANTLY riding about posting belly pictures through both of her pregnancies!
There were plenty more but those were the most fun!
Okay fellow preggos and mommies. I want to know some of the most outrageous and fun reactions you got when friends and loved ones found out you were pregnant!

Until next time…

  1. Hahaha, I love that last comic! Your friends reactions are priceless. :)(Also, I just read your movement update, how exciting! PS-my sisters baby moves if she eats chocolate. Something about the sugar/caffeine wakes it up)
