    My UO: I already kind of went over this in the Thursday ticker change thread, but I really didn't like breastfeeding last time. The thought of having to do it again is already stressing me out. If I could go straight to FF without feeling super judged then I probably would...

    I give you mad props for trying. Especially given how much you did not like it last time. Try to stay optimistic about it this time though, you may fall in love with it/have an easier time this go around. I know it's not my baby or body and how they eat is none of my business, but I have a bigger issue with women that don't even try (outside of some serious medical issues) That I don't understand.

    @LDSJM123 thanks! It could have been because I had such a short maternity leave last time (6 weeks) so I quickly became a slave to the pump (which I hated). That and I had mastitis at one point. That's enough to drive anyone crazy! But just thinking about breastfeeding brings back some of those not-so-good memories :(

    I don't know if this is an UO or a popular one: I am really hating the way my late-term belly looks. It has a gross shape and it just looks garish. Not cute at all! I know all of this is a miracle and whatnot, but I feel hideous. I can't remember who said it but someone yesterday wrote that she felt like a small planet. That sums it up perfectly! I feel like a circus freak and I'm soooooo sick of people asking how I feel, when I'm due, etc., etc.

    @LDSJM123 you don't have to understand it. Not your body. If some one doesn't want to BF, they don't have to. They don't need to run their 'excuse ' by you for approval.

    I would never ever, in a bajillion years say something to anyone, ever,  if they decided not to try. Nor would I ask their reason. Happy baby and happy mama are all that matter. It's an UO, I just don't understand not trying.

    @joleri23 I am with you! Mine is so discolored from stretch marks/visible veins. I was wearing a sports bra around the house yesterday and every time I looked down I just wanted to cry.

    @schaze agreed. Kudos to the mamas to be still rockin' their bikinis out there. My belly looks like a highway road map right now with all the visible blue veins everywhere so I'm going to be covered up in my tankini. That and with my half popped-out belly button only DH gets to see what's under there. "grotesque" is exactly how I'm feeling right now. In general I think other pregnant people look cute though. When the nurse came at me with the Doppler at my last appointment she said "Oh, what a beautiful belly!" So I think we're all our biggest critics.

    @Nerdchild Me too, and then I feel bad because while I was working I couldn't wait to be done. It's just hard to be productive when just moving around is uncomfortable and tiring, but sitting around all day is so incredibly boring.

    @lizhurt  I believe @elenabrent posted a website for cool clothes like that awhile back.... I want to say feministapparel.com but I could be wrong?

    @soberkfell That would drive me batshit. I'm afraid my MIL will be this way (if/when she is allowed back in our lives at some point).

    @soberkfell YES! my mom does that sort of crap just to stir up trouble.

    I don't believe all the stuff I keep seeing on Facebook about like "don't eat this, don't go here." Before you know it, we'll be down to eating air.

    @DobbysSock you're right I wasn't really offended at all, probably because I do WANT to at least try it again before totally giving up on it, because, every child is different and there's a small possibility I could have an easier time this go around.  But, I agree with you that every individual mom's feeding choice should be up to her and if she doesn't WANT to breastfeed she shouldn't have to even try without any judgment from anyone.

    @Kellyj103 OMG yaaaasssss!!!! My friend bought me a "Straight Outta Mommy" onesie and I adore it! I also spent like 10 minutes laughing at a Drake onesie yesterday that says "Started from the belly now I'm here." Hilarious!

    I guess my really UO is that I don't mind onesies that have sayings on them. I certainly don't like all of them - especially ones about "no one gets to date my daughter" and crap like that - but I don't mind ones that say Queen Bee or things like that. Especially because I received so many for free.

    @joleri23 HAHAHA! I like the Drake one. That's pretty funny!

    I didn't say I hated all the onesies with text. There are most definitely exceptions.

    @joleri23 OMG I want that Drake onesie! Lol! Too funny! My next purchase for sure.
