    My sister comes over every other weekend, she's twelve. AKA the snottiest, snarkiest age of all time apparently. I texted her dad last night to tell him to make sure she brings her bathing suit today and she calls me today because it's at my mom's and she expects me to go get it. Uh, no. If you don't have a bathing suit accessible then wear clothes you don't mind getting wet but don't boss me around little lady, I'm not your errand lady!

    Mine is lame, but I left my BP meds at work and didn't realize it until I was home. Now I have to go all the way back there to get them. I'm so over the pregnancy swiss cheese brain.

    I'm tired!! I have no energy for anything. You know it's bad when I don't even want to go shopping with my mom. I don't think I've ever turned down shopping.

    This actually happened yesterday but
    I'm still ragey about it.  I had to do a home visit with the grandmother of one of my clients yesterday.  She is aware I'm pregnant, besides the fact that it's visibly obvious right now.  She and her boyfriend spent the hour long visit smoking.  I know I was in their home, but seriously?! Second hand smoke is so awesome.  To top it off I had a meeting with our pediatrician right after so showed up smelling like an ash tray. Great first impression.

    Omg, terrible @megstervt!! How disrespectful.  
  • Options
    @megstervt wow. That is so rude and inconsiderate! Did your pediatrician say anything?
  • Options
    @megstervt gross sorry you had to deal with that! 
  • Options
    @schaze no she didn't.  I was kind of surprised actually but also didnt want to awkwardly blurt out "I swear I don't smoke."

    I have a lady in work that is pregnant and is still a smoker. Yet she feels the need to bash anyone who says a glass of wine every now and again is okay (if you choose). I hate double standards. I don't mean to half the time but I seriously side eye women who still smoke during pregnancy and don't even try to cut back/quit. I know it's hard but she shouldn't judge me for having an odd glass of wine when she continues to smoke 20 a day!

    @megstervt That's seriously nasty. 

    My bitch is public transit related. Half the subway line was down so I had to take a crowded shuttle bus full of pissy people. Then someone threw up all over the front of the bus so the super full bus got dumped on the side of the road. It took eight buses before my pregnant ass could fit on one, of course there were no seats and I kept getting pushed. People on transit suck

    @Weville   There was no one in 8 bus loads of people who offered to let the pregnant lady go ahead? Yeesh!

    I FEEL YOU! I'm in NYC and I literally glare at everyone on the train and/or busses because NOBODY will give up their seat for my giant pregnant self!

    @DataJane Nope. In fact there was a woman and her friend that tried to shove past me to get on ahead of me. I gave them a very colourful piece of my mind

    I can't stand smokers. It disgusts me when I am walking down the street and I have to inhale dirty second hand smoke.

    My sister is away for the week, so I agreed to watch the dog, a German Shepherd. She babies him too much, so he's not very well trained. She gave me detailed instructions on how to play with him and stuff. I don't mind feeding him, but there's no way, at 31 weeks pregnant, that I'm chasing around a giant dog. Especially since I'm officially out of work due to high blood pressure, and I've been put on modified bed rest. I try so hard to be patient with her. She's not a bad person, just really clueless sometimes.

    My bitch is allergies. 
    Finally got my child's allergies under control and now I feel like I'm dying. I can't wait for all the hay to be cut on the farm.

    I had a bad day yesterday so my husband took me out for Chinese food. Woke up in the middle of the night with food poisoning! Not my ideal way to start the weekend.

    My husband's job pisses me off more than my own job does. We had plans tonight. He was supposed to get off at 4, it's almost 8 and he's still there. I know it's not worth being mad at him but damn dude, leave! 
  • Options
    @megstervt that's AWFUL! I'm so sorry you had to go through that! I would still be mad about that.

    We have a very small house on pier and beam. We have one bedroom in said small house. We are moving our house to some land and are going to add a room on for the baby. Before we move the house, the pad has to be done to put the house on. It has rained like all week every other week since February. Which means the ground is too wet to build the pad. Which means absolutely nothing is going to be done by the time our baby arrives. All I want to do is get his nursery ready. But all I am able to do is check the weather forecast and cry. It's going to rain all this week. Again. :(

    H works long hours at the car lot and has been helping his dad plant most nights after. I don't care, I really don't he likes working and it's not like planting season last forever. BUT the car lot closed over 5 hours ago, I called him at 8 and he was still there with the guys and they'd hopefully be leaving soon. That was two hours ago and NOTHING. He's not home, he's not returning my phone calls or texts. I'm pretty laid back especially when it comes to him working but come the f*ck on, how hard is it to send a text or call saying you're going to be later or he's going to go to his Dad's to plant some more? Beyond annoyed at this point and debating on locking the door and going to sleep.

    Oh. Hell. No. I'd be pissed.

    @Weville people never cease to amaze and got so much to say after the fact! Sorry you were harassed! You can't usually reason with an intoxicated person either so I think you handled it perfectly.

    I'm annoyed because I went to Target on Friday and purchased several items for the baby. I open the Target ad today and see that not only did my entire purchase qualify for a $20 gift card but the Munchkin Step diaper pail that I purchased also qualified for a $15 gift card. I'm hoping that they will take pity on a pregnant woman and allow me to get the cards by showing my receipt. I'm not too optimistic though.

    @PinkLady2015 that's obnoxious! My husband is definitely more excited over having a girl than a boy and let's it be known. Luckily we haven't had any comments like that yet, but I'm sure if we do we'll both be jumping down that person's throat! Haha
  • Options
    @Weville I told my DH about your transit troubles and he couldn't believe it. It really sucks that no one even spoke up about the harassment you were receiving. I would be so upset and think you handled it well.

    Mine for this weekend just happened. Since I was about to eat breakfast, I texted my mom Happy Mother's Day and told her I would call her later (and wanted to at least acknowledge the day early so that she didn't think I forgot). She wrote back "Thanks! And next year it will be you! How exciting!" Ummm, am I completely wrong in being slightly mad at this comment? Is she trying to say I'm not a mother yet? While DH and I aren't necessarily celebrating today, the first thing he said to me this morning was Happy Mothers Day. I feel like I'm still a mom whether our baby girl has arrived or not. Kinda disheartening to hear from her, so I'll guess I'll be awkwardly bringing this up when I call her later.

    @Kellyj103  so she doesn't honor her own mother? Or MIL? Or any aunts?


  • Options
    @Mbondi0I second @dolewhipper's comment - Target is awesome, and I totally see them honoring it. Annoying that you have to go back in, though! Also annoying maybe they couldn't have said something when they were checking you out that you might want to come back the next day... Thanks for the indirect heads up on the savings, though - I'll be heading over there today!

    My weekend bitch... I made returns to both Bed, Bath & Beyond and Buy, Buy Baby yesterday, but both items were gifts, and I didn't have the receipts. Apparently their awesome return policy is not so much now. They'll still take something back without a receipt as long as they sell the item, but they now assume that it was purchased with a 20% off coupon and won't give you the full amount of the purchase price. I was still able to buy $50 worth of stuff at Buy, Buy Baby for $1.73 after getting the store credit from both places, but the principal of the matter is annoying. Oh well... I guess it's better than nothing.

    @Weville so sorry you went through that!! All the hugs lady. 

    @Kellyj103 your mom sounds like she needs a reality check. You are definitely a mama carrying and growing that little babe inside of your womb. Shame on her for feeling like any day is hers and hers alone. So selfish!
