You are not alone. I hate those terms as well as referring to my husband as my hubby.

I don't mind depending on who is saying it. If it's my sister or husband (he would never say this though) it's ok...anyone else and it would drive me crazy! I also loathe the term "hubby"...idk why but it just gets on my nerves!

I don't know why, but I feel the urge to tell people I'm not a spaghetti sauce brand when I'm called preggo.

It's irritating but I don't loathe it. Yet.

I've only been called preggo once and it was by the other pregnant woman at work lol. Maybe that's why I didn't mind? DH usually just calls me fatty .
I'm a bit odd maybe. I wouldn't say hubby in actual conversation but I don't mind it when typing it. It would be weird to use as part of my normal speech.

If "Prego" or "Preggy" is the worst thing I am called, I think I am having a pretty darn good day.

I've hated the term "preggo" since I first heard it years ago. Blegh! It sounds so Valley Girl/"Clueless" to me

Oh I use Preggo when I'm being lazy and don't feel like writing it all out. I don't think I've ever had anyone call me anything that meant "pregnant person" though lol. I don't look pregnant at 18 weeks (a little tubby but that's it)...I don't know why I think my fat is just nice and spread out lol because I have a pretty short waist so you'd think I'd start showing sooner! Well, and I don't work or anything so I'm around my kids and they mostly call me mommy =)

I think it depends on who says it for me. I don't mind if my family does it.

I hate when it gets to the point that your belly is visible and people decide it's public property and they can touch it as much as they want. I used to work in a bouncy place for kids and the parents would reach over the counter all the time and just rub. It was so awkward...
