1000 Questions to Ask a Pregnant Woman

Have you ever been wandering around town, encountered a pregnant woman and be at a loss for words on what to ask her? What about any pregnant family members or friends you might have; you don’t know how to break the ice and start a conversation?

Fear not you young grasshoppers, for I have created the ultimate guide on questions to ask a pregnant woman. As a DIY kind of guy, I think similar-minded people might find this list very helpful.

But please use these questions at your own risk. While most of these questions are completely normal, some of these are inappropriate, personal, or just plain weird to ask. Yet from experience, pregnant woman should expect them on a constant, daily basis.

Again, use at your own risk. I’m not responsible for anyone unleashing their unpredictable hormonal-unbalanced fury on you.
