2nd Trimester

My first rude pregnancy comment

So I've been getting winded climbing the two flights at school to get to my office. I'm almost at the top of the 2nd flight, when the band teacher (young 20 something single girl) goes flying past. I joke around with her that lately the stairs are getting harder and harder. But it's okay because my heart is pumping 50% more. She adds "Oh my sister and I were walking in Alaska this summer when she was 5 and 1/2 months pregnant and carrying a 40 lb pack. She was fine."

Well gooooooooood for your sister. Now go away, I need to pant and catch my breath.

Re: My first rude pregnancy comment

  • was that supposed to be encouragement?? I would have said "I hope you trip on the top step and fall all the way down." haha
  • Sheesh what do you people expect? You aren't sick. You aren't an invalid. You are just pregnant. Its not an excuse to turn into a fat sloth. I don't think I'm going to like this website very much. It was recommended by a friend, but so far all I have seen are posts by a bunch of whiny babies.

    I just don't understand. She cant walk up two flights of stairs? This is why you are supposed to go to the gym people!

    Yep, because the fact that our utes and babies are pushing on the rest of our organs has absolutely nothing to do with it.

    Um and my baby isnt pushing on my organs? That's why you are supposed to exercise. And not gain a lot of weight. Duh.

  • i prob wouldn't have said anything if i was her but she is very young. i don't work out much at all so i've BEEN winded just walking up one flight of stairs out of the subway station in the mornings (i think i'm a little better in the afternoons though).

    Whoa calm down.  Sorry not everyone goes to the gym.  Not everyone is in top physical shape, like you probably think you are.  However, we are not fat sloths.  Sorry if we all need a place to connect to other pregnant women who understand what we are going through. Please don't come back if you are going to continuously look down on others.  That is not what this board is for.

    EXACTLY, GrahamSchneider!

    Who says she's out of shape or a fat sloth AidaSullivan?? I work out every day, 1 1/2 and still get winded on the steps at work. I have this thing...called a baby pushing all my organs upward. If you're going to be mean...just don't post anything. Good grief.

    You are supposed to exercise because the baby is pushing your organs? I'm sorry, I didn't realize exercising magically moves the baby into a position that it leaves the rest of your body in the same exact position as it was pre pg. My bad.

  • People are so obnoxious. I have the same problem with the 2 flights of stairs at my work. Luckily the ladies in my department aren't a bunch of fitness crazed loonies.

    Who the fark decided that?? I actually can't work out because the baby is up so high that I cannot breath at all when I exercise.  My ob has suggested yoga but that is certainly not gonna help me get up the stairs any faster. There is definitely no pregnancy rule that says you are supposed to go to the gym.  Damn you for striking a nerve when I was having a good day.

  • Shortness of breath is just something that happens in pregnancy, no matter how often you visit the gym...
  • Well...in fairness, you shouldn't be that winded from 2 flights of stairs. I was hiking and running until the day before I delivered last time.

    speaking of rude pregnancy comments. wow. i just started using this site, thanks for the warm welcome.  I was overweight pp and havnt gained but about 2 lbs pregnant. I have read tons of stuff and it is very common to be winded regularly even if you are working out. youre sharing the oxygen you get with the baby who needs alot. 

    aidiasullivan why dont you start your own post and bash on pregnant women for whatever reason you feel necessary and you can get together with other (if any) women that want to do the same. this post is not the place for you.

     

    thanks

    You sound very uneducated.  First of all everyone has things that they are suppose to do, but don't do it.  So you mean to tell me that you do EVERYTHING you are suppose to do??  BS!!  I workout 4 times per week and have for 7 yrs, even ran 4 half marathons, but that gives me NO right to put down ppl who don't work out! Do some research on the organs moving up the farther along in your pregnancy you are.  You must not be far along in your pregnancy or you would know that! I struggle with stairs as well and as I said before I DO workout 4 times per week, and not just walking either(more like aerobics, step-class, weights)

    As someone else said please do yourself a favor and click the X at the top if all your going to bring is negativity!  Have a great pregnancy, you perfect lady!

    You don't know her situation, don't judge her.  Maybe she was in top physical condition and went to the gym 6 days a week before she got pregnant.  You don't know that.  All she said is that she was having trouble getting up the stairs, which is not unreasonable when you're pregnant if you're in shape or not.  Pregnancy takes a toll on the body.  Everyone handles their pregnancy differently.  Some days are harder than others.  Maybe if you've been on this board for more than 2 days you'd realize that.

    A recommendation and a rule are not the same thing! I certainly don't blame her for getting winded after 2 flights of stairs. I sympathize with OP because I am the same way, though I praise her for making it 2 flights before getting winded!!! I get winded after 1 depending on the size of the flight of stairs!!!!
