18 Phrases to Avoid in Conversation

What not to say. For example:
Don’t say: “Are you pregnant?” Why: You ask, she’s not, and you feel totally embarrassed for essentially pointing out that she’s overweight. Instead say: “Hello” or “Great to see you” or “You look great.” Anything besides “Are you pregnant?” or “What’s the due date?” will do. Save yourself the humiliation and never ask. 
As a man, when speaking to women about pregnancy, I have a strategy for not saying anything offensive, dumb, or insensitive. I don't talk to women about pregnancy.
