Your coworkers sound awful.

Yup, they sound awful. Next time, she asks you about the coffee, politely say “yes, please”.

Do they know it bothers you? My coworkers and I tease each other like that (and worse) all the time, but everyone is always into it, playing along and dishing it out as well as they take it. I feel like you’ve posted about your coworkers before – maybe it’s time to have a talk with them. (Especially because if you’re anything like me, pregnancy hormones will make you take everything personally and burst into tears at the drop of a hat. I cried a few weeks ago because my husband playfully moved his Doritos bag away when I reached for one. Seriously, it’s that bad!)

Oh lordy. That would piss the hell out of me (I’m pregnant, too, so my blood is boiling just reading this). I don’t even know what to say, just… ugh. They sound bored and lame — your being pregnant is clearly the most interesting thing to talk about in the office right now.

Yep, prepare yourself, it will only get worse – especially with the way your coworkers sound… Nothing you do will be right or good enough and anything you say can and will get thrown back in your face with a “Oh you just wait until XYZ…”

I’m sure this isn’t what you want to hear, but if you are getting this upset over someone asking if you want coffee (even if they are being obnoxious about it), it is going to be a LONG 9 months. Try to relax a bit. I get your hormones are going mental, you are going to drive yourself insane if you don’t figure out a way to get your emotions in check.

Daizy914:  It doesn’t sound that bad tbh, but it sounds like there’s some tension anyway so I’m not surprised that their comments rub you the wrong way. That said, you need to chill about people asking you if you want coffee. That’s normally a nice gesture!

Daizy914:  Listen, i’m not denying that she is being obnoxious, nor am I saying that she’s in the right….but assuming she is doing it to be a bitch, why let her have that kind of power over you, and let her see it’s affecting you? If you told her to quit, and she won’t, and if she’s trying to be obnoxious, you are playing right into her hand, and letting her ruin your day. Why let someone else do that?

Just smile and nod, and let her be miserable. If she is that unhappy with her own life that she has to bring you down for no reason other than to make herself feel better, she’s suffering enough, so you don’t need any kind of come backs. In this instance, being happy is the best revenge.

Agreed your co-workers sound awful!! The people I work directly with are all men and why they tease me relentlessly they also look out for me. It is one thing to playfully joke with others but another to keep doing it after you’ve let them know it’s not okay. There will be endless people giving you unwanted advice that is just ridiculous. You’ll have to deal with this for 9 months and it sucks. I just say thanks and move on (unless it’s really offensive) because people are just ridiculous. I hope your co-workers lighten up after a while, this would be pure hell for 9 months!
