Pet peeve

underHim underHim
Okay, one of my personal pet peeves is when a couple will say "we are pregnant" especially if a guy says it. Its like, okay, are you going to go through labor and everything. I shouldnt let stuff like that annoy me, but it does. Does this annoy anyone else but me?

I think it might just be you. The couple is pregnant, both of them are experiencing changes not only in their lives in a general sense but also in the actual relationship. Pregnancy does not just affect the woman in the couple, it affects the entirety of the relationship. While she may be doing the heavy lifting, so to speak, he is also experiencing his world being flipped upside down and that, my friend, is why couples struggle so very hard to keep their relationship in tact as much as they can as they are going through the pregnancy and then having to adjust yet again once he/she arrives.

LOL. I don't know why, but this post made me laugh.

I was a single mom through both of my pregnancies, so I can't imagine ever having said that.

It's not terribly annoying, I actually love it when my man uses 'we' when he's talking about the two of us to someone instead of something like '-insert name here- and I'. I can see how it could be a little irritating considering the man doesn't feel any of the physical pain and such though but the men do have to deal with the emotional roller coaster and possibly have to walk on eggshells to avoid stressing their partner.

I find the phrase "we are pregnant" to be particularly annoying. The definition of pregnant from a medical dictionary is "Carrying developing offspring within the body." And from a regular dictionary it's "Having a child or other offspring developing in the body; with child or young, as a woman or female mammal." Only the person carrying the baby is actually pregnant as per the definition of pregnancy. I'd just prefer that couples say "We are having a baby" because saying we are pregnant is just inaccurate.

I like the phrase. To me, it sounds like a couple that face challenges together. No one person is just "along for the ride." It's always bothered me that the guys never really get thunder. The engagement is all about the girl, the wedding is all about the girl, the pregnancy is all about the girl.

Ladies get all the thunder. We should share a little.

It doesn't bother me because trust me my hubby caught hell from my hormones when I was pregnant with my two.

Doesn't bother me, shows that the man is invested in the upcoming life changes. Sure, it's not accurate if you're looking at it strictly from a dictionary perspective, but I doubt the couple gives a rat's behind about what the dictionary says.

My husband said that all the time when we had our kids, and I thought it was pretty sweet

meh that doesnt bother me, what would bother me is if during labor he says something like-

"its alright," (no, it so is not...)
"its not that bad," (wtf my vagina is exploding)
"stop screaming its going to be ok!" (no it will not be ok, ground zero will never be the same...)

because while the couple is having a baby... he still is not squeezing it out...
