If you thought people could be nosy, rude, and disrespectful before, just wait until you have a pregnant belly for them to comment on. All bets are off as complete strangers (not to mention mothers, mothers-in-law, and friends) decide it is their duty to pass judgment on your stomach, your choices, and every last personal detail of your previously private life.

Laura Warren, a TV news anchor in Augusta, GA, went public last week with a voicemail a viewer left her telling her that she looked “disgusting” and “like you got a watermelon strapped under your too-tight outfits.” (For the record, we think 20-week pregnant Warren looks all kinds of amazing in her body-hugging red dress.) Warren refused to be body-shamed and turned the conversation around by posting on her blog, “I'm going to say as many nice things as I can to as many people as I can, and I'm going to do it in a dress that fits these beautiful new curves with my 'watermelon' stomach showing."

We applaud the positive-thinking news anchor and share these equally rude comments that are the definition of what not to say to a pregnant woman.
