    :wacko::wacko:

    I know people mean well and probably dont realise what they say but i find people say stuff that is probably best left unsaid as i realised last night on my work xmas party :haha:

    Thought id start a list if anyone wants to add to it.....

    - Its like squeezing a water melon thru the eye of a needle

    - How does your diet coke taste? (this one pee'd me off i like diet coke and dont need vodka to have a good time!)

    - You will probably poo during labour :dohh:

    - I had stitches and couldnt wee properly for weeks

    - You shouldnt wish for snow, you wont be able to enjoy it properly :cry:

    Thats all i can remember for now :growlmad:

    Agreed that one is the best so far. Let's see we are too tiny/too huge, won't be able to cope with labor, and won't have any life after that. Gee what was I thinking, you should have told me earlier, I would have most certainly changed my mind. DUH!

    I've had "Oh! So it was planned then?" Uhhh, yes? Just because I'm young doesn't mean it wasn't planned!

    And then "So I take it you're keeping it?".........:dohh:

    Yeah..I shut up one very obnoxious neighbor when he said that..I simply told him that we did, and we even have the video if he wanted to see it! Oh, we never talked with them much after that!

    "It's only early days yet"

    I still get that even though I'm 18 weeks on Friday!! At any stage through pregnancy, I think that's such a horrible thing to say to someone...as if we're not worryin enough!!

    You girls have made me laugh though lol some of your comments are really funny xx

    Ooh I have another to add... My stepmum keeps making comments (doesn't usually talk to me much about kids...or anything) about how hard being a mum is, how much she struggles with her kids etc etc.... It's almost like she's trying to convince me out of having a baby.... BIT LATE!!! :rofl:
