"I would give anything... — The Bump
TTC After a Loss

"I would give anything...

...to be in your shoes."

That's my first thought today after my 5 month pregnant teammate (the one who got pg with a rebound 'friend with benefits') complained today in the staff lounge. 

She whined, "I am so annoyed that I can't wear one green shirt every day in March this year!  All of my green shirts don't fit!  Uuuuugh." 

My sentiments exactly.  Uuuuugh.  Vent over.

  • Yea, a girl at work complains everyday that she is tired...must be nice I think.

  • I have more than a few pregnant Facebook friends, and every.single.one. of them complains about something or other each day. I just want to say, "be thankful you're sick and tired, it means your baby is growing and thriving, and you're still pregnant".

    I made a conscious decision before even getting pregnant that I would try my hardest never to complain about being pregnant, because there are so many women who don't get the chance. Now that I've been pregnant and had a loss, I feel even stronger about not complaining.

    Sure it sucks to be sick, tired, have a back ache, have to constantly pee, but really, what in life that's worth it isn't a little difficult sometimes?

  • I hate it when people complain. I'm sure it's not all wonderful but do they not realize the miracle that pregnancy is? And why doesn't she just go buy a stupid green shirt?

  • There are so many worse things that could happen in life then having a little morning sickness.  I don't think pregnant women should NEVER complain, but it doesn't have to be all the time and about every little thing. 

    Every time a pregnant friend complains about her sore back or whatever I just want to scream and tell them how I endured a tremendous amount of physical pain as a miscarried my very first child at home.

  • It just comes so easy to some people that they take it for granted. At least when we get our sticky babies we will know to appreciate every minute! I am sorry you have to deal with her!
  • I'm sure she is total sweetheart, but is it wrong to say I would want to slap her!?

    I went to the Chiro today (haven't been since I was preggo over 6 weeks ago, but then lost baby 4 weeks ago)...and she said, "oh my gosh...you look fabulous for being almost 14 weeks preggo! I nearly lost it sobbing like a damn baby and at the same time wanted to just punch her for saying that. (And of course, she had no idea!)

  • I'd give anything too.  Drives me batty when women aren't grateful for what they have.

  • I think it when I'm around those who don't know me well, but to my BFF I said it to her face. I told her I'd give anything to be in her shoes and she looks to me and says "It's okay Jess, it'll be your time soon enough". Seriously? ((Hugs))

  • Arg!  The universe can be so cruel sometimes.  I am sorry that you had to hear the whining from your teammate.  It is such a blessing to be pregnant, I hope that you get there soon....your chart looks good by the way.

  • sorry to hear about the teammate.. jeez.. some people. I think having gone through this... makes me more sensitive to all the complaining and want to tell them - at least you still have or got your baby.   :P
