Why is pregnancy deemed vs. so negative?

Why does everyone deem pregnancy as such a negative thing? Even the married couples who’ve been together for a very long time, seem to get the short end of the stick when they find out they’re pregnant. Everyone seems to shed such negative light on having a baby, like your life is about to end. Even the people that are happy for the pregnant people, have some sort of negativity toward it. "Wow, they’re a lot of work!" "Oh, my, ANOTHER little one?", Even when the couple only has one or two older kids. The list goes on and on. I know this is a naming site, but, it was just on my mind, and I knew of this site, and this place you seem to get questions answered pretty quick. Thank you!

Emma in Western Australia
We have a boy named Tyler James and a girl named Gypsie Jade. Expecting our 3rd, which is a boy. I'm in love with the name Olly, but my partner thinks Gypsie and Olly are unique names and Tyler is not, so it won't feel right. So he wants an ordinary name. Please help with something unique but ordinary.
Baby Name Genie:
In the space between unique and ordinary is a special category of names I think of as "antiques." They are familiar and well-used names that are not widely in use these days. For your son, I give you Oscar Jude - a perfectly ordinary, unique name.
