To most of us, the word “pregnant” is just normal when explaining something or someone that is, well, pregnant. If you’re Queen Elizabeth, it’s not OK to use that term because she hates it. It’s actually one of her biggest pet peeves. The Queen prefers not to use the word “pregnant” when describing expecting women because it’s “vulgar.” What does she swap it out with? A source claims Her Majesty instead refers to pregnant women as "in the family way." What does that even mean!? I have to be honest, the word “pregnant” kind of freaks me out a little too, but I think I can come up with something a little more creative than “in the family way.” Just saying. -
