    I'm getting really cheesed off that after I get all upset about stuff, I look back on it and realize just how petty I've been.

    For eg. The whole gender thing a couple weeks back, when I asked people if I was having a boy or girl and then got all worried and upset when people didn't really know what to say when they said "both" and made me feel like I was having a hermaphrodite.
    A normal person would just laugh it off and accept that some people just don't have an answer.
    Then I had someone tell me I talk too much about being pregnant. Was rather upset at that one.

    The latest one is I'm getting loads of people saying that the first question they're gonna ask me once I've had my 20 week scan in 2 weeks is whether it's a boy or girl. Pissed me off a little because for me, the first question I think SHOULD be asked is "is the baby OK?" People seem to forget that the main reason we have scan's is to moniter the babys progress and check that there are no problems. Finding out the gender is the added bonus really. I'd have thought the babys health would be far more important a question to ask than about whether it's a girl or boy? Again, I feel like I'm being petty and maybe taking the fun out of everything.

    I don't know, I'm probably being extremely fussy and petty over stuff, I really don't mean to. I feel like I'm going crazy and driving people nuts over it.

    Grrr...how I do develop that healthy balance of not reading so much into everything? I'm turning into a grumpy pregnant woman and it's upsetting me because I don't know what to do. :cry:

    Thanks Sam (((hugs)))

    I wrote this and read a similar thread so I don't feel so alone now, but sheesh, I think pregnancy has been a lot harder on me emotionally than physically. :(

    I think we can definitely all relate. I find myself getting fed up when people notice my bump or ask me how I'm feeling - I know they're just being nice, but I kind of feel like people have only bothered with me since I was pregnant... I think it's just that good old emotional, hormonal rollercoaster!!
