What a pregnant woman really doesn’t want to hear!
Being pregnant. Nobody ever told you it would be so hard. That body. Those pregnancy illnesses. Being tired fulltime. And you've only just got your hormones under control. Just kidding, cause usually you can't control them at all. Well, this is what you don't want to hear as a pregnant woman! So watch out!
Her weight: a very sensitive subject!‘Are you pregnant or...?’ Asked with a slight doubt in their voice. Uh, yeah, I'm pregnant. Why else would I be this fat? ‘I see. Your head got bigger’ Okay, well, thank you. No need to say that. ‘WOW, your belly is huge!’ I know, I know. I can feel it too. Leave me alone. ‘Are you sure it's only one baby?’ Ha-ha, that's funny. No, no twins in your belly, otherwise you would have been the first to know.
Don't point out the pregnancy hormones that are playing up again!‘Are your hormones playing up again?’ *including evil laugh* No, I just don't like what you do. And how you do it. Why are you this annoying? Just get out of my sight. That makes it easier for me to deal with you. ‘Just because you're pregnant doesn't mean the world revolves around you.’ Uh, yeah, yes. Do you know how I feel? No! If I want to go home, I go home. If I want to do some shopping, I will shop. If I want to be cranky in bed, I will. Deal with it.
Foooooood!‘Are you allowed to eat that?’ Thanks, but I know what I'm allowed and what I'm not allowed to eat. And no, I'm not "officially" allowed to eat this. But I'm eating it anyway. A little bite can't hurt! ‘Shouldn't you eat some more? You eat for two!’ No, I don't eat for two. That's nonsense. My baby is teeny-tiny. Besides, I can't eat more, it just doesn't fit! So stay out of it. ‘Fries, that's not good for your baby, is it?’ Seriously? Are you going to meddle in what I eat? When I feel like eating fries, I will eat fries. You should better leave those fries, too, you know... ‘Calm down, your food will be here in a minute’ I sincerely wish I could wait and be patient, but I can't! Please understand. When I'm hungry, I'm really hungry! I am not overreacting, I just have to eat NOW!
Mind your own business please
‘You better give birth at home. Or won't you?’ Uh, sorry? It's up to me where I give birth. That's none of your business! ‘You're gonna breast-feed, aren't you?’ Another case of mind your own business! I will do it my way! Besides, not everyone manages to breastfeed. So I don't know if I'm going to breastfeed. I sure hope so.. ‘I don't think of you as a 'motherly' type’ Is she saying this for real? Thanks for reminding me of my own insecurity. Really, thank you so much.
