1st Trimester

Rude Comments!!

I know being pregnant will bring alot of attention - good and bad. Little old ladies might come up to you with sweet advice and good luck wishes, others will zip by on a bike and yell "CALL JENNY" (truth - happened to my 7 months pregnant friend yesterday!!) O.O

So Im 10 weeks along and I experienced my first ignorant comment from a woman.

For starters, Im Not showing, however im also not a size 2. I get that. I accept that. I will probably get really big and struggle to loose it later. Tis life. :) but its worth it in the end.

Ignorant Person: " So Michelle, I hear your expecting. When are you due?" "Late June." "Oh, okay, and I see your getting really big already!"

 ... ... ...

*DO THE MATH B!#&%!!!!!!!!!!!!!*

Talk about ruining my whole day. Worst part.. I was so dumbstruck by her comment I was unable to come up with a comeback! ACK!

Anyone else getting HORRIBLE comments?! Yikes!

  • idk! i had a teacher ask how far i was, "3 months" i was like, no 7 weeks. lol.. i'm just really bloated!

    yah your friends comment was just A LITTLE ridiculous. unfortunetly, too many people speak before they think their comment through these days. no one has really said anything to me, but i LOVE IT when i get funny looks when i go up stairs at school and i'm completely winded by the time i get to the top. i just imagine this must be what its like to be morbidly obese, everything takes your breath away, heart races after the smallest bit of activety, being starving all the time, cant poop, people looking at you with daggers in their eyes when you go up stares.

    i just want to say, "hey, i'm pregnant and my body is making twice its normal amount of blood, and i require more oxygen, ***!" LOL!!!

  • I'm sorry you had to deal with that. I think whenever someone sees a pregnant woman their IQ automatically drops and stupid questions just flow out. I have had so many people ask me dumb questions. My Aunt asked me why I wasn't getting an elective C Section because "it was so much safer for my child." (Keep in mind this is my first, I'm healthy, and she knows I want to do natural) My mother keeps asking me questions about different aspects of the religion I'll be teaching my baby. The dumb questions go on and on. Problem is every time I answer them I get walked all over because it's not "how they would do it."

    WTF does that have to do with anything? My friend was almost 30 when her son was born, her husband 39. They had been married for about 3 years when she got pregnant. Extremely unplanned pregnancy.

    its just rude. thats all.. "was it planned?" people have asked me that, i dont get offended, because its usually at school and since i'll be graduating right after i give birth... its kind of perfect timing. i like to tell people that we had decided to "let nature take its coarse" but we just didnt expect nature to work so quickly. LOL. which is the truth.

    the point is, your friend who is 30 and has been married for 3 years, they may not have expected to have children, but i guarentee it came up in conversation before it happened.. married people have these discussions, single people dont. haha thats the point.. its just like 90% more likely that it was planned, having been married. that is why most people get married, to start a family.

    Oh, agreed that it is rude and none of their business. But her insinuation that because they were married for a year and a half that it must have clearly planned been is dumb.

    You win this for the day.

    image

    And I never said it didn't come up with my friend. My point was that just because people are married doesn't mean they are going to start trying to shiit a kid instantly. That may have been your reason for getting married, but to even try to claim it is everyone's (or even 90% of the population's) reason for getting married is also pretty dumb as well. We could have easily had children without getting married. That had nothing to do with our decision, and that is true for many couples.

    At my family's T-day lunch, EVERYONE kept rubbing my belly and then ask me how far along I am. When I replied with 9 weeks, they quickly removed their hand and looked embarrased.

    Yup, that's all meeeee! lol I'm a bit bloated but for the most part, I started gaining weight back in July after I found out I had a miscarriage...this is not baby weight. It's pity weight. lol

    OMG, me too. I miscarried at the end of June, lost my 3 or 4 lbs I gained with the pregnancy... and then gained 10. And I swear, I just gained 10 on my tummy so it looks like I'm more pregnant than I am. 

    It's not a *rude* comment, but it still makes me sad when people are like, "Oh, you're showing!" Yep. At eight weeks. Just call me Bella.

    no she called someone else dumb for talking about a personal story that irritated her. seconly, i said it was 90% more likely that a planned child came from a marriage, because before people get married they have conversations about children, whether or not to have them. i said nothing about "90% of the population" of that you have to be married to have a planned child.. nor did i say that married people cant have "surprises" they can and do, and i also never said the only reason people get married is to have kids, either.
