  • @tessiesmom26 I understand what you are saying. They are super adorable and I love the baby kicks...except when they wake me up at 4 am and I have to walk around like a zombie all day because I’m so tired. Love the healthy baby, but do not love 4 am dance parties in my uterus.

  • @tessiesmom26 I totally get it. Some baby kicks feel sweet and cute, but lately I've been doing a few fast turnaround projects at work, and weird baby kicks and hiccups are super distracting.

    Since a few people mentioned it in another thread, bubble tea is gross!!! Those chewy bubbles have no flavor and taste like glue.

  • @offtoneverland I agree. Bubble tea= yuckkk. 
    AFM - I'm not a fan of shirts with sayings on them, like "Daddy's little princess", "Mommy's heartbreaker" or "Baby on Board" etc etc. They're so popular and I just find them so unnecessary.

  • @offtoneverland I love bubble tea! I know it is weird but if you find a good place (there are many bad ones), it is delicious.

    @mrsdrez I wore a shirt to Disney World that said Baby loading and got so many compliments! I like maternity shirts that say baby, otherwise people would just assume fat :(

  • I don’t understand the need for push presents, but gifts are 100% not my love language.

    @mrsdrez  Completely agree on the shirts with sayings! With my first, grandparents gave us SO many onesies with stupid sayings, which I never put them in. I think everyone except my mom got the hint...she still buys shirts like that for my girls....

  • Gifts aren't my love language either, but like @BabyBoyH92016 said, I'm not one to turn down fine jewelry.  ;)

  • Can I add mine a day late? I hate baby showers. I went to my own as reluctantly as I go to everyone else's. :neutral:

  • @lachnessmomster I hate baby showers too. I never had a shower with ds, but that was also because I was working hard on staying alive and keeping him in ad long as possible.

  • @lifesabeach85 I deactivated my Facebook four or five years ago and never looked back. I'm sure it's only gotten worse since then.

    @wildrainbow Yes, I imagine that was pretty all-consuming! No need to add more stress to an already stressful pregnancy, especially if it's not your thing to begin with!

  • I think it’s sweet for a significant other to get a present after a woman gives birth, but ugh the term push present. It’s so weird.

  • @wannaflickone I don't think there's anything wrong with receiving a present from YH who wanted to give it to you in the first place. I think it gets a bit unsettling when a woman expects a huge, expensive present after they give birth. Some women seem to expect it as a rite of passage, and that seems off-putting to me.

    If H gives me some nice jewelry after I have this baby, I would very happily accept it and would be really excited. But he didn't get me anything after DD so I don't expect it. 

    I knew a woman who was pregnant with her third and she went on and on about the very expensive watch her H just had to get her as a push present, and that just seems greedy to me.

    If you get some new bling, you'll have to post pics. :)
