"Have you seen your feet in a while? And how much do you weigh now? Are all appropriate baby conversations"
Who the hell came up with this gem? You wouldn't ask a non-pregnant woman how much she weighs would you? At least not expecting an actual answer anyway...
The most inappropriate I've had was from a colleague - and not one i talk to that often. He had asked me why I wasn't travelling with some of the rest of my team - and when I said I was expecting he said 'Oh! Was it planned?'

that is a really annoying question...
as well as occasional people who think its a good idea to tell you your not exactly in the best situation to be having a child at the moment
i feel like saying "yes i know I'm a university student and yes i do plan on continuing study, and even if i didn't it's not the end of the world"
I'm a believer in womans rights but not when other believers think that a perfectly natural process has just set us back fifty years of fighting,
as far as i was aware pregnant women and mothers still get the vote

That does sound annoying.
I knew someone who got so fed up with people asking if she was having a boy or a girl that she started answering "It's a giraffe!" Think she got a few funny looks for it, but they got the point eventually.
