I was in a conversation the other say when the guy referred to "When we were pregnant". I just did a bit of an internet search and apart from seahorses, it seems that males don't become pregnant or carry their young for any period of time before they're born.
Ok, ok, I know I'm being pedantic, but that phrase "We're pregnant" or anything that suggests both parents are pregnant, just really irritates me. And everyone seems to be saying it.
For some reason "We're expecting" doesn't bother me at all; it conveys that a baby is on the way but doesn't give the bloke credit for physically carrying the baby. That's what's probably bothering me - I never liked being pregnant and was sick as a dog for a lot of the time, so I'd be bloody annoyed if the Ball & Chain tried to claim similar symptoms on any level whatsoever. Furthermore, you never hear a father saying "We're breast-feeding" yet the pregnancy claim leaps to the same ridiculous scenario - that a man's body could carry and/ or provide sustenance for a baby.
And it appears that a few men agree with me, before anyone starts accusing me of anti-men-ism or something militant like that. Some people get even more irritated than me by the phrase too. If you're religious, you might even see it as " slap in the face for our Creator" like this person, but I wouldn't necessarily go that far.
If guys (and their women, for that matter) could just stick to "We're expecting" it would be nice. That's all.
