Unplanned Pregnancy Cake Topper: Tasteless or Sign of the Times?

Cheeky "Oops!" cake topper in aisle four of the craft store! Is mama celebrating a shotgun wedding or a surprise pregnancy? It's hard to tell, but I spied this decoration and wondered what others would make of it. What's your take, is it tasteless to celebrate an unplanned pregnancy with brazen decorations and jokes, or just an honest sign of the times?

She is standing on a scale.... implying "UH-OH" OR "OH-MY" at her WEIGHT. Not her pregnancy. I love funny stuff, and can find humor in just about anything, and as a cake topper saying "Oops" about a pregnancy, I would find it funny but it's still tasteless (I would never use that b/c pg. women are known for our emotional crap, so why would you even hint at something negative on a good day?) . A cake topper that implies "Oops" about weight gain is very cute and funny in my book... still a little tasteless. I've seen this thing in stores, I had a chuckle, but I would not want it on my cake, nor would I put it on a friends cake.

I had a surprize pregnancy while planning my wedding. I use the rhythm method as I'm allergic to the pill and condoms irritate me. I've always had a longer cycle and ovulate around Day20 but low and behold I ovulated a full week earlier (had sex 2 days earlier) and found out we were expecting 6 weeks after we had set our date. Luckily I hadn't ordered my dress yet! We had our wedding when I was 6 months pregnant and now have a happy 2 year old.

The fact is, some people to not take proper precautions when having sex,or when protection fails. I highly doubt a rape victim is going to plan a baby shower in celebration, and if one is thrown for them, the cake topper is obviously tacky. In my situation, my husband and I made a mistake in calculating ovulation, resulting in my beautiful son. We weren't dead set on not having a child, but we weren't trying for one, either. We were not upset nor devastated about the pregnancy, and for our shower, I think the cake topper would have been humorous in a tasteful way. I believe it depends on the situation.

Get a clue, anon! You're the dummy here who obviously can't read what people are saying! A lot of people don't realize that their birth control wasn't working properly until long after Plan B would be effective. And, not every rape survivor goes to the emergency room to get a rape kit. :oy:

If my bff had an unplanned pregnancy we would have a great laugh at this. Of course it would be just her and I at the party because her family would NOT see the humor, and the rest of our circle would think it was tacky.

Of course there's a such thing as an unplanned pregnancy! How silly to think otherwise. I think this is cute and a little tongue-in-cheek. Of course it's not for everyone, but I think it's great for the person with the right sense of humor.
