OH and I called round to a friends sisters house last night as she was having a house warming party. I didn't particularly want to go as I know the kind of crowd (all the men just get really drunk and stoned) while the women just sit around and bitch about people, but I thought seeing as it was a sat night and 2 of my close friends were going to be there that there would be no harm in just popping in for a few minutes. Anyway after having sat outside for most of our visit we decided to leave and we passed through the living room were all the women were sitting. They started asking me questions about being pregnant, the usual "when are you due?" "are you not terrified?" etc etc which was fine but when I mentioned that I was doing it naturally all 4 of them laughed in my face and made me feel like a complete idiot. "you'll not be saying that when your in labour" etc but I just took it on the chin keeping in mind that none of these women have had kids so they don't know what they are talking about. Well this is were is gets really bad one of the (who I'd never met before) turns round and says "That's just a parasite inside you stealing your food. I'm sorry but it is just a parasite" I was sooo disgusted I couldn't gather any words to talk back! How DARE she call MY SON a PARASITE??? I have never been so hurt in my entire life and its worse because she was a complete stranger! Not only how could anyone say something like that but how could she even believe that herself? I'm just so upset and disappointed that my little baby had to hear someone call him a PARASITE. What a horrible word. She then went on to say how bumps were disgusting and she hated it when they moved. I'm sorry for the rant ladies but it was such a shitty ending to a wonderful day and now I can't stop thinking about it and gettin upset!
