Re: UO Thursday

  • not baby related

    I hate people that talk on speaker phone on their cell phone in public.  I know I dont have to listen, but normally - they are yelling so I cant miss them & it is very distracting. 

    I would also hate to be on the other end of a speaker phone conversation on a busy street or in the middle of the grocery store.

  • I think all the people who are in the early part of the 30 week set who are talking about walking and things to "speed things up" or who are excited things are "progressing" are awful. Your baby will come when it should, please stop trying to hurry it along or wanting to be about to go into labor before you should.

    And I am not referring to the "I can't wait for it to be my due date" type people, I do see the difference.

    On a similar note, I hate when you sit down for a quiet cup of coffee/tea/ect and to read the paper and there are 30 open tables and someone has to take the table RIGHT NEXT TO YOU and either talk loudly on their phones or with eachother...there is something wrong with one of the other 29 open tables that aren't obnoxiously close to me?

    My U/O of the week though is...I hate when families argue over an estate. I think its trashy like you are trying to profit from your loved ones death. My DH lost his grandpa and I lost my grandma this summer, neither had wills. Grandma's estate is almost settled but DH's family is arguing over pennies---I get that you want things to be split equally but you shouldn't be looking for a winfall because your loved one died--and I'm sure that they don't lovingly look down on you behaving this way.

  • I despise how critical people are when I say "Yes, I am going to continue working after baby is born".  No, I do not have the luxury of being a FTM, glad you do and GL with that. Yes, my husband is a kick ass Dad and will be an AWESOME SAHD.  No he is not less of a man for it, he is retired military and has more than served his family ((and yours)).  This does not mean I love my baby less.  I have a child to put in college in three years and I can ((very comfortably)) retire in seven years.  Which means that she will have TWO retired parents.  Who will be at home with her every day. 

    So I may not stay at home now...but I will definately be able to eventually with some serious $$ banked.  Money may not make the world go round but you still have to pay the bills.

    As someone who has mostly been a SAHM/ only worked a few hours a week I am pretty jealous of this.

    I wish people would stop harping on this. I am excited for whenever my son wants to come, be it tomorrow or 6 weeks from now. Yes, if he came early it would also be scary but I'm not going to live in fear, I'm going to live in excitement. Any progress is exciting for me because it gets me closer to my baby. There is nothing wrong with enjoying sex, walking, bouncing on my exercise ball, or nursing my daughter because it also helps prepare my body for labor. None of this makes me "awful" or "wishing for a preemie" (like was mentioned last week) unless I am at risk for PTL. I am in the home stretch of a happy, healthy, normal pregnancy and short of crochet hooking my cervix I doubt I can push myself into early labor unless my body is already ripe for it.

    Thats fine but there are people posting things like "My doctor is pulling me from work and wants me to rest but I'm going to walk a lot to try to speed things up". That to me is awful.

  • 1) I find the recent influx of "newbies" incredibly annoying. Especially when they post about how mean we are on this board.  Those of us who have been on this board since Jan/Feb know that it's actually a pretty good group of ladies.  Are there fights?  Sure, but it's generally over a difference of opinion and I haven't really seen anything terrible happen on here in the 9 months that I've been on. 

    2) I stop reading posts that don't use punctuation or somewhat proper grammar.  I do not understand how people can post like that and expect to be understood or respected.  I'm not talking about an occasional spelling mistake or a quickly written post that lacks great sentence structure.  I'm talking NO caps, no periods, etc. 

     

    TTC since 3/2009. Started seeing RE in 5/10. DH = low morphology.

    I generally hate it when anyone calls anyone mean on these boards. Either suck it up or pack up your toys and go home. No one is making you be here.

    I am way too judgmental about grammar and punctuation. And I hold grudges. Using the wrong form of their or using an apostrophe in a plural word colors the way I view people's posts/input forever after. Yes, there are accidents now and then but it's pretty easy to tell who has a good grasp on their writing skills.

  • This pregnant lady may lose it if one more veteran parent says "Sleep now! You won't later" I demand an explanation as to HOW. I have been a fabulous sleeper my entire life but now between my hip pain, back pain, pubic pain and need to pee every two hours, I am in a constant state of sleep deprivation. I may as well already have my outside baby!

    This! We are usually pretty P&R around here except for a few heated debates that have went down. I think some ladies are way too sensitive and don't know how to take a joke. I LOVE it when HappyAardvark posts on something because not only is she brutally honest, she cracks me up and some of the ladies that randomly show up on here and post need some brutal honesty. Mentioning HA, wasn't she supposed to have her baby this week, anyone heard anything from her?

    I agree it is so sad when this happens! I am more interested in grieving the loss of my loved one then who gets what. Everytime there has been a death in my extended family people have stopped talking to each other. 2 of my aunts still don't speak and it has been 4 years since my Grandpa died

  • I'm not sure if this qualifies as UO, but I don't like when family or friends tell me I better be ready to "share" my baby. MIL told me I better enjoy these next few weeks or days because when LO gets here, I will have to share. I told DH last night, I am not sure how I will handle that.

    As a veteran parent I can tell you it is possible to get sleep with a baby.   I had no problem, we did co sleep though.  I'm looking forward to sleeping better after baby is here.  Unisom is the only way I get sleep these days.(Which I'll not take after LO arrives)  Plus I won't have to get up at 4:00 for work for 12 weeks!

  • Today I pretty much agree with everything today!

    Mine is along the line of those trying to 'speed it up'. I am not talking about ladies who have medical conditions that are making it safer for babies to come early, or that are just stating they are uncomfortable, but not actively searching for ways to make delivery happen!

    I can't imagine being 36 weeks and selfishly stating that you want your outside baby b/c you are uncomfortable! Parenting is going to be a lot of sacrifices of yourself and your time b/c your child should be a priority in life! Why are you not looking at pregnancy the same way?!? Your baby will come when s/he is ready to come! I know a lot of the moms who had to deliver early would trade places with you in a heartbeat to still have their babies on the inside cooking away!

    On this note, I know it is the end of beach season up here, but I hate when you are one of three people on a huge empty beach and another group of people put their stuff down right next to you! 

    I also hate when people have an entire empty beach, but have to throw a football right next to where you are sitting. Even worse when these people cannot throw or catch to save their lives. Move away from other people if the beach is empty!

    These were on my mind since it happened to me last weekend...

  • Im so sick of reading posts about how much pain someone is in because baby is SO low.  Of course baby is low, of course it is painful...we are ALL experiencing discomfort in one way or another.  Im sure that there are some people who legitimately do have it worse than others, but for the most part....this is late pregnancy people! Its just how it is!

    Mine is the other end of cell phone etiquette.  It really bothers me when people are ALWAYS on their cell phones.  When we have dinner with my brother, he has his phone sitting right there beside him.  He will text and check emails constantly, and I find it so rude that he can't put his phone down for 30 minutes.  But I see this with so many people when we were out.  A group of people will be at a restaurant, and at least 1 or 2 of them will be on their phones doing something.  Whatever happened to spending time and actually talking to people face to face?  Don't get me wrong, I use my phone, check email and text, but not when I am spending time with friends or family.

    I feel the same way. Yeah, I'm uncomfortable, but that goes with the territory and I can deal with it. As much as I can't wait to see my baby, I still feel overwhelmed with preparations for his arrival, and need more time. I'm also trying to savor every baby free moment I have left, cause I will never have that again.

  • My U/O is that it annoys me that most of these posts are not actually U/O.  Most of them are very popular opinions, or how people "should" feel.

    It's like saying "My U/O is that I hate when it's raining and that I think it should be sunny every day".  To me, that's not a very unpoular opinion...

    I find the people who think they own these boards just cause they have been on here longer are annoying.  I don't post about how mean people are, etc and I have just as a right to be on here as you.

    I find this hilarious. Comments like, "I've been on the Knot/Nest/Bump for x# of years so I know more than you" are hilarious.  Maybe they want a medal for spending most of their free time on the internet?  

    My UO: I'm so sick and tired of people wishing me pregnancy discomfort.  I'm 35 weeks and still feeling great. I have zero symptoms, go to the gym several times a week and truly do not feel any discomfort.  The, "Oh you just wait, that just means your delivery will be hell" comments are ridiculous. Not everyone suffers through pregnancy.  Sorry if I'm not as miserable as you. The last person to say this is due a week after me and she'd be ecstatic if I started feeling like crap.  It's almost like those with the worst symptoms win some kind of pregnancy award.  I've actually been told that I haven't truly experienced pregnancy because I had none of the typical symptoms.
