    I don't really mind "We're Pregnant" because my husband was there everystep of the way. He couldn't actually carry the baby, but he did what he could. However I have to nudge him and remind him that "WE" are not breastfeeding. I am. YOU are not the one getting up in the middle of the night, suffering sore nipples and engorgement. I AM. I'm not letting him take credit for that. Other than being somewhat emotionally supportive of it, my husband has done nothing to facilitate breastfeeding (i.e bringing the baby to me at night, changing her diaper...). So no WE are NOT breastfeeding. I am breastfeeding.

    Yes, I hate that one too. My husband is wonderful with our daughter and takes very good care of her. And she is just as much his responsibility as she is mine. Only thing he can't do that I can is put her to the breast (but he still feeds her EBM).

    I do make sure I tell him what a great job he does with her though because I think sometimes he isn't confident in his ability to care for her, even though he is great with her.

    "I'm pregnant" or "we're expecting a baby." Although, I can tolerate "we're pregnant" more from the men than the women. It's endearing from men, but from women it reminds me of the "today I marry my best friend" crowd. <<ducking>>

    Also, "actually" gets me. I can't tell you how many sentences start with "actually," even when they're correcting with the same exact thing. It sounds pretentious.
    Actually, for me it's "You know what I mean?" Only you say it as a single word, youknowwhatimean? There was this girl at work, youknowwhatimean, and her hair was kind of like, too short, youknowwhatimean, and after every sentence she said "you know what I mean?", youknowwhatimean?

    I like to make my dh think he's in on it; that way he bends over backwards to do things for me during preg. "We're pregnant" is staying.
    I agree with "we're pregnant" too; it speaks volumes about the relationship! By the way, what does "dh" mean? I'm guessing "dear husband"? I see many of you use that abbreviation.

    WE are not pregnant. WE are not passing the large thing through the small space.

    But . . . .

    WE are going to have a baby.

    Just my

    Don't misunderstand me. It's great for partners to be involved and hands-on. It wasn't always like that. There are other ways to be supportive than semantics, though.

    Unless you're mad @ him. Then it can have another meaning without you having to violate the TOS of this board.

    By the way, I've looked. I can't seem to find the definition for the word "diffinition." Any help?
    that's so not nice, to make a waspy comment over a spelling mistake, low, low low!

    When my first baby was very new, my mother-in-law made a comment about how it was exciting that my husband was "babysitting." had to let her have it for that one! :angryfire

    Personally, I'm tired of hearing "chipotle". I had never heard this word before; then, all of a sudden it is EVERYWHERE!

    mmmm, giant burritos.....

    I had someone come in n/v after eating Chipotle. I had to block it out b/c I do love the pork.
