There is this saying that was super popular when I was growing up “sticks and stones will break your bones, but words will never hurt me”. As I grew older I have determined that to be an absolute LIE. As I sit here pregnant with my 4th child [my first passed due to stillbirth] I reflect on the things that have been said to me over the last 13 years. Whether I was trying to conceive, already pregnant, post pregnancy or after the loss of my child. I have also asked this question in a mom group that I am in and got their input and there have been a lot of repeated things said to women that are extremely offensive but are said with “the best intentions”.
