@Mizu1235,
It means "please" in Italian.

@Mizu1235,
Or a common abbreviation of "pregnant".

@maporsche,
I've seen this written as "preggers" - my impression is the original poster was referring to a written text, not spoken words.

That thread was interesting for the number of single post responses - a number of people joined up, posted a response that day and were never seen again.
This is Mizu1235's first, and so far only, post.

Prego

@ossobuco,
On rereading it, I see I'm the guy "who has no business responding to that thread". True enough, my ears may have missed things, or my memory may have.
Fbaezer's post was useful, as usual.

@Region Philbis,
To cut to the chase, from my point of view, I take the word as a polite 'please'.

And what was the question, Mizu? Context is incredibly helpful.
