"I still can't wear my skinny jeans, and my baby is in kindergarten."
A newly pregnant woman is likely excited, and a little mystified, by her new body. Before there's even a belly, there are spidey-sense-abilities-to-smell everything, the Pantene-commercial-like hair and all manner of other curious changes. It's like puberty, only weirder. So while your postpartum friends want to commiserate about stretch marks and varicose veins and the fawn-soft paunch your kids like to squeeze to relieve stress, your pregnant friend wants to hear this and only this: "What a cute belly!" (After she is unmistakably showing, of course.)
