Would you want your husband to try pregnancy?

Do you find people considerate, and helpful towards pregnant people in the New York area?  Have you witnessed people ignoring pregnant women on buses, subways, or in restaurants?  Post your comments (below) and they could appear on Eyewitness News First at 4 p.m.



I would always give my seat to a elderly woman or a pregnant woman no doubt, that's the right and decent thing to do, they don't even have to ask me i will offer it.

Women's Liberation

What happened to women's lib? You're pregnant NOT HANDICAPPED! Stop looking for extra sympathy! Pregnant women need to stop acting like their doing the world a favor and expecting special treatment. 1.) the world is over populated, anyone who gives birth instead of adopting - you're automatically going to get rude treatment 2.) These pregnant women who expect "favors" are the same obnoxious people who feel "entitled" to bring their kids into 5 star restaurants instead of hiring a babysitter. No thanks - I'll keep my subway seat! Pregnancy is a choice - you choose pregnancy, you choose to be uncomfortable for 9 months - it's a package deal. Don't like it? Adopt! Can't have it both ways: You can't be equal to a man AND expct him to hold the door open for you!!!

As a 6 foot tall woman I am hard to miss. When I was pregnant a few months ago I never got a seat on the train or the bus. People would look at me when and then once they realized I was pregnant they would close their eyes, go back to reading or just stare at me. Even worst was when I reached my stop, they would not even give me the common courtesy to get off the train/bus without attemping to run into me. As a person who has traveled all over the world - NY is the only place that does not respect its pregnant woman. What a shame. So glad that I gave birth and am now an at home Mom with a beautiful baby.
