Why on earth do people say this when they hear I'm pregnant?

"Oh, I'm sooooo glad to be past that stage!  I love my sleep and freedom!"

Um, hows about just saying Congrats and move on, you dumb drag queen?Confused

    "Oh you're having another boy?  That's too bad."  That also calls for just a simple congrats.

    Yikes.  I wonder if I'll get that if we find out we're having a boy.

    You haven't gotten the "Oh wow!  So soon?!  Didn't you just have your other LO?"

    WTF people.  My children are 22 months apart.  I didn't realize that was so radical.

    People really need a filter.

    I love you Bethenny! Seriously, I've said this about 5 times since the show aired.

    And yeah, people are stupid with their comments. Too big, too small, how horrible, was it planned, are you happy, do you hope it's a boy/girl, blah blah blah. ::throat punch::

    I don't understand people. The appropriate response when people are expecting is "congrats." Same goes with finding out the sex. Everything else they should just keep to themselves.

    I haven't gotten this *yet*.  Most people started asking me when I was having #2 once DS was a year old.  I think most people expect 2 years apart.

    Have you been watching Real Housewives of New York? Smile

    And it's because people are idiots, but you already knew the answer to that!

    I bet the same people who inappropriately respond "so soon?" also inappropriately ask "so when are you gonna have another?"
