Why is that as soon as people find out you are pregnant they think they know better than you? Yes this is my first pregnancy but it doesn't mean I want to hear about you, your pregnancies OR even worse you bloody sisters pregnancy. If I wanted your opinions I would ask. Maybe I am being snappy. Below are expamples of their "opinions" 1 - "You do realise you will look 10 years older once you have a baby" this coming from someone who has never had kids, doesnt want them but whose sister had. Baring in mind she in her 30s and smokes rollies all day. I quit smoking over a year ago and am only 22 with a "babyface". I still have to give ID to buy alcohol! Grrr. 2 - When speaking to a friend at work about the gender scan I have booked for next week they (Yep more than one) piped up and basically told me I was pathetic for not being able to wait. When I explained my 20 week scan is not a gender scan so I may not be able to find out they told me I would be stupid to waste my money on such a thing as they are never right anyway. Seriously... one of these women has kids older than me - so before they could even find out! 3 - Have been looking after my OHs 7 year old brother for a couple of weeks which has been hard work. Working full time, running the house, looking after him and dealing with the pregnancy symptoms is tough. I know lots of women do it but to go from only having to care for myself to caring for a growing bub AND kid is a bit of a shock to the system. When I was saying (Not to them... to a friend) that I was tired and my tummy was sore they all piped up and told me this was nothing. I would soon get a shock blah blah. I know how hard it is to bring up a baby... I don't need them telling me! Oh AND they overheard me telling a friend that I had felt the baby moving last week. They told me NO i hadnt... as it is too early. F*ck. Its my body! I know what I feel! Ontop of this there have been comments about the pain of childbirth, my weight, my name choices. Actually... anything I say about being pregnant they have some sarcy remark to make. Gd'pcjovugciv£%^I*ER()U*DNJJSJSH!!!! GRRRR! Is it going to be like this the entire time? Im contemplating hybernating!
