Pregnancy Etiquette guide

From The pigeon mom

My personal favorites are pointers 8 and 10.

Pointer#1 Always offer us a seat, especially on public transport vehicles. Balancing acts in moving vehicles are not exactly our specialty during these 9 months.
Pointer#2 Please do offer to carry our things for us. We walk and carry two, so our feet and back always hurt. Any kind of help is much appreciated.
Pointer#3 Yes, you may also open the door for us. If chivalry is plus points for the ladies, you're a knight in shining armor for pregnant women.
Pointer#4 Please let us go first in the restrooms. Because the miracle of life is squeezed all inside our tummies, we tend to go more often.
Pointer#5 Lend us a hand when crossing the str and hold the elevator for us. As you may have noticed, we tend to walk a bit slower than the rest of the rushng crowd.
Pointer#6 Avoid pointing out our shortomings in the physcal looks departme. Beauty is relativ and pregnancy is a beautiul blessing
Pointe#7 Contrary to popular belief, telling pregnancy stories to expectant moms are not helpful
Pointer#8 No matter how tempting, refrain from touching our tummies unless given permission.
Pointer#9 Do not take our hormonal mood swings personally. And yes, during these 9 months we have the excuse to blame biology for our crankiness and sudden cravings in the middle of the night.
Pointer#10 Do not point out ow much weight we've gained. That, my friends, is a valuable lesson that applies even after we gave birth.
