Maybe you got some terrible reactions to your sudden pregnancy and you're wondering if you're alone. Maybe your friend is pregnant and you're not quite sure how to handle it.
Or maybe your pregnant friend posted this on Facebook as a subtle hint, and you're about to find out that you're a big jerk.
Whatever the reason, know that there is definitely a wrong way to react to pregnancy news. And if you're upset about the way your friends or family or even your partner reacted, know that it isn't because your pregnancy is going to ruin your life, or because they're all smarter than you.
It's because they're a bunch of idiots.
Here are the Top 10 worst reactions (in GIFs) to those two life-changing words: "I'm pregnant."
1. The uncomfortable silence
2. The exaggerated dramatic freak-out
If she wasn't freaked out before, your screaming and crying and full-on panic attack got her there.
You're a good friend.
3. The in-denial Doomsday-er
Your life would be over. Your body would be ruined. No, this can't happen. You're not pregnant.

4. The bad-timing conversation starter
If your sentence starts with, "Well...what are you gonna do about __(money/school/job/ANYTHING)__," skip it for another time. Better yet: Keep it to yourself and know that she probably already thought of every stress-inducing scenario possible. She's got it covered.
5. The angry reaction
HOW COULD YOU LET THIS HAPPEN?
6. The negative blow-off
Hint: "That sucks" isn't a great response. Try again. (And with a SMILE, maybe?)
7. The million (horrible) questions
Was it a mistake? When are you getting married? Are you getting rid of it? Don't you know how to prevent this? How did this happen?
Shhh. Not now. Not ever.
(Also: see more annoying comments to avoid.)
8. The immediate gossiper
Can you at least wait until you leave to start texting our friends?
9. The All-About-Me reaction
Some people are the WORST.
10. Is it mine?
Probably the last thing she wants to hear, dude.
