In 2010, 47-year-old actress Kelly Preston gave birth to a much-celebrated baby amidst "isn't-she-too-old-for-that" buzz. As any woman who's been able to legally vote for at least a decade can attest, there's no shortage of people who will wonder, aloud, whether we can handle such an undertaking at such advanced age. Such pondering, as with most comments related to pregnancy, should be kept on the down-low -- reserved only for catty conversations with your closest friends.

And, pregnant women, please refrain from self-effacing comments like, "I'm too old for this," when rattling off the bodily woes that inevitably accompany your impending bundle of joy. Chances are, the woman to whom you're commiserating is a) older than you are or b) was older than you during her last pregnancy.
