What do you think of terms like "knocked up"? Do you think it's offensive to use those terms? Is there only certain people who can use those terms with you?
My boyfriend and I used to joke all the time when I was pregnant. I would say "we COULD do this, but you got me all knocked up!" or he would say "well we could have done this, but I got you all knocked up! So we can't do that!"
I would be taken aback if some stranger were to come up to me and said "So who knocked you up?" But my friends and I used to joke with the term. I wouldn't use the term with anyone I didn't know, though.
What are your thoughts?
