Totally normal. Sounds like pregnancy hormones which are absolutely normal!  I’ve been there, still am. If nobody likes the hormones, too bad for them LOL

@megz06:  I’m with you!  I’m 16 weeks and only have told parents, siblings and grandparents and a few close friends.  I found out the other day my mom has been running her mouth around telling people, which pissed me off to no end. Not because I care that she tells people at this point, but the least she could have done was asked me if it was okay to start spreading the news.  But, then again she immediately posted on facebook when we told her at 11 weeks, despite me telling her not to tell anyone at the very least until we got the results of my NT scan back a few weeks later.  I’m chalking it up to hormones that everyone annoys me.  

I have very little desire to tell work, facebook, anyone else that doesn’t know.  1. It feels awkward to just call someone up and be like hi I’m pregnant. Like, I feel like they’ll be like so who the F cares?! lol.

@megz06:  you sound exactly like me. my mom grabbed me and rubbed my 12w preg non-belly. like, held a hand to my back so she could really press in there. WHAT IS THE POINT OF TOUCHING A PREGNANT WOMAN’S BELLY??? Baby can’t feel it, person doesn’t enjoy it- keep your mitts to yourself.

As you go along, you will see several things over and over:

1. People want to tell you all about their experiences. Good, bad or mundane. Anytime I mention anything, my mom has to tell me how it was for her. NO MATTER WHAT IT IS.

2. People will “inform” you of things. “did you know you’re supposed to be getting XX amt of folate?” “Get rest now, you’ll never sleep again.”

3. It will not end. After baby is here, you will have hens around you telling you how to hold the baby, what milestones he should be hitting, how to get him to sleep, etc.

Welcome to your new life 🙁

@megz06:  Haha I wanted to punch her! Luckily, DH saw it within 60 seconds of it going up so I marched into her room (we were visitng at the time) and asked her to take it down.  She then proceeded to get mad at ME for being mad at her? Makes no sense of course but that’s my mom for ya. The important part is, she took it down and I don’t think many people had a chance to see it.

As for the touching, I’ll beat a bitch up if they touch me without asking!  I NEVER touch a prego without asking and I NEVER ask with the exception of my sister and my best friend.

I didn’t have the raqging hormones during the first trimester, but now in my second they are in full force toward people so I can definitely relate. Wink

I will tell you it’s completely normal so don’t beat yourself up.  Just try to smile on the outside while your envisioning tripping that person on the inside.

I will share another one to be prepared for.  I’ve found it helps when other bees/people have warned me on a few things; now I can just laugh to myself when a coworker says something instead of getting upset or wanting to yell at others.

  • “Hey Madtowngirl, how are you feeling?”  
  • “Meh, I’m pretty good….can’t complain too much although my back has started to kill me a bit.”
  • “WHAT?! You have such a long way to go.  You’re going to need to toughen up if you’re going to make it.”   

Grrrr, I’m sorry….why again did you ask how I’m doing if you’re going to make me feel bad if I answer with anything but “FANTASTIC!” ???  I’m pregnant and it’s not enjoyable so there. Tongue Out

@MrsWBS:  & @megz06:  Sorry to break it to you….but you will get touched and you will feel so uncomfortable.  And this is coming from a “hugger” who didn’t think it would bother her.  Well, it for sure bothers me and it for sure happens a LOT more than I thought it would!  People are crazy!!! Wink

I was the saaaaame way- very standoffish. But believe me when I say don’t hold out hope for getting privacy or your own space because it ain’t gunna happen. Sucks. I was such a bitch that people just evnetually left me alone and realize just because I’m pregnant doesn’t mean all other topics of conversation cease to exist.

@megz06:  I chuckled out loud at your response! I never thought of that, but now I am for sure going to respond to at least one person by touching their stomach back.  Probably my “coworker with no boundaries” – I love her and we’re somewhat close, but she comes to “rub my baby” every day and doesn’t pick up on how it makes me skirm.  THIS may help! LOL

@MadTownGirl: Oh I completely know I will get touched against my will.  That doesn’t mean I will be nice when it happens though!

@megz06:  Ive never seen a “were pregnant” announcement.  Only after the birth announcements after the baby is born with a picture.   I’m going to have a very hard time with random people trying to touch my belly when I’m pregnant – guess it will be interesting!
