I have a phobia of pregnant women. They make me feel almost the same as when I see a spider (i have a lovely case of arachnophobia as well as a phobia of parasites in general) with an added dose of nausea. If I had to choose I would rather be in a room with a spider than a pregnant lady. At least the spider will more than likely stay away from me.....but we all know the preggo will be compelled to fetus stalk. And that won't end well since the focus of my phobias trigger my fight or flight....and I usually go with fight....so someone is gonna get falcon punched.
Don't post a pic of a preggo belly in a thread about how flipping disgusting preggo bellies are! Jesus F. Christ, really?
Oh GAWD WHY?!
There goes my appetite for the rest of the freaking day.

Pregnant women never really bothered me until the last ten years with the rise of digital photography and social media.
I didn't want to see them nude, though! I've never thought a pregnant woman was beautiful. Demi Moore on the cover of Vanity Fair grossed me out. If anything, it was the smell of pregnant women I didn't like. Anyone else notice they smell funny? It may be lotion or powder, or it could be my nose is sensative enough to smell the hormonal shifts.
Now? UGH! Every time I turn around on Facebook or Deviant Art or anywhere else, I see bulging bellies with hands or feet protruding through. All I can think of is "ALIEN!" If I want to see something like that, I'll go rent the movie and watch it happen to John Hurt.
You're the very people who said it didn't take a village to raise a child. So, get YOUR kids out of MY hut!
When did the world go from a society protecting pregnant women to being required to worship everything about them?
To me it's not just that they're showing off their engorged bellies with ill-fitting clothes and constant belly rubbing, it's that everyone is supposed to think that it's "Oh so cute!" and "Oh sooo special!" And if you dare to utter one little "bleh" or "meh", they act like you've committed the biggest sacrilege ever.
Most "normal" pregnant bellies don't freak me out... but I don't like to see bare bellies. Here's one that freak some of you out... I'm a massage therapist and I HATE doing prenatal massage... it's really a nag. You have to have the woman on her side with 3 different pillows bolstering her head, knees, arm... etc. It's hard to get to vital muscles and it's just a pain. Plus because of the hormones released due to pregnancy, there's an increased possible risk of injury and overstretching... I just HATE it. Well LUCKY ME...because our other massage therapist at school sucks at life, I got her prenatal massage this Friday FML.
Preggos at the swim gym. OMG. In the sauna, they always sit against the wall and they don't close their legs which means their lady parts are showing - and they look like a McD cheese burger because of the swelling. Why can't they face the wall? You can practically see the baby crowning! I always face the wall when saunaing out of decency.
Conversation in sauna: "Hows Derpina doing, she is due soon as I recall" "Well she had her fifth last week and you know, it went so easily! Only two hours!" Well whaddid you expect, baby FELL out! How many babies can you have until you grow a conveyor belt down there ??!

Ugh, I know! We just went over reproductive system pathologies yesterday in class, and one was pregnancy (although the book stressed it was NOT a disease, but a "natural condition"...I beg to differ). Just had a drawing of a fetus in the womb, but it gave me as much of the heebie-jeebies as the picture of a woman with expothalmus did. *shudder*
