Biz and Theresa discuss what makes people feel they can talk to pregnant women about their changing bodies, in particular when they use the word "fat" as something sinister even when making a baby, and how that makes us feel. Hint: Not good. We also talk to the awesome Nicole Knepper, author of  "Moms Who Drink and Swear: True Tales of Loving My Kids While Losing My Mind."
