At a party, an acquaintance's husband approached the group of women I was chatting with and joined in the conversation by asking, "Did you hear, we're pregnant?" After a few minutes of congratulatory comments, the husband walked away.

My friend turned to me and launched into a ten minute tirade against the phrase, "We're pregnant." "Is he carrying that baby," she asked. "Is he spending his days and nights hugging the toilet as he fights off morning sickness?" "Is he going to have to push something the size of a watermelon out of something the size of a grape?"

How do you feel about the phrase?
