So I was dropping off the kids for a couple of hours at my mom’s and the first thing she said to me was, “You’re brave to wear stripes!” Sweet! My response, “Well it’s no secret that I’m pregnant, I might as well wear them.” LOL
Was I upset? Not really, I kind of expected it. My mom is the kind of person who says things and then thinks about saying them in a nicer way after the damage is done. She’s a very forward and matter of fact woman with her sensitivity filter turned off on most days. I’ve talked to her about it before because even though my brothers and I know how to respond to her, most people don’t and will think she’s rude or insensitive even though she’s the least of those things. It’s kind of the running joke in my family that she just says what she has to say and she’s done with it. Honestly, she’s trying to be more cognizant of it so I applaud her for that.
So what do you think? Is it okay for pregnant women to wear stripes? Would/did you wear stripes during pregnancy?
