Dayum.  My assistant once told me maybe I wasn’t ready to have kids.  I’m not ALREADY PREGNANT and I could have throttled her (if she weren’t 20-some weeks pregnant herself). 

Congrats!  Enjoy doing exactly what you want to do with your body, your baby, and the technology available to you.  🙂

Oy.  People suck.  We didn’t find out the gender, and people gave us shit about it all the time.  You literally CAN.NOT.WIN.

@megz06:  wow that woman sounds like a gem…good thing your DH is good at biting his tongue….I know I wouldnt have. Sucks that people are so judgemental that you have to monitor how much info you give out. I know me and my DH will have to do the same when we get pregnant.

@megz06:  Yeah, people think that because you’re pregnant that your uterus and lifestyle are all up for discussion/critique.  I probably would have responded even more rudely that it’s none of her goddamn business what we choose to do and then walked away.

Oh for heaven sakes. My response would have been “well if you have the time to tell me how I should run my relationship then clearly you need to pay more attention to your own.”

@Laurenskii:  HAH I love this!

It sucks when people are not only stupidly crass, but they use things like “Im on the board” as scapegoat. Thats BLACKMAIL right there lady!

@megz06:  People will always have an opinion. You have the right approach though – fuck ’em. It’s your lives, your baby, and your choice. Why they think they get a say or that their opinion matters is beyond me.

Personally, we don’t want to find out the gender (okay, fine – I don’t, he does) but I would never judge anyone (except my husband) for wanting to find out 😀 It is a very personal decision and what works for one won’t work for everyone!

@MrsBaldEagle:  +1. It probably is a good thing that he didn’t say anything snarky back since she’s “on the board”.

@megz06:  People suck! Are you planning on sharing the gender with everyone when you find out, or keeping it pretty quiet? I know I’d have to find out, too. I’m a little bit type A, and I don’t think I could wait. I would want to plan too! So, sue us 😉

@megz06:  I’m not pregnant, but FI and I thought that we might find out the gender and only tell immediate family and very close friends. No need to announce it to the world. We would keep it to ourselves completely, except I know I would slip up at some point and say “he” or “she” and the cat would be out of the bag.

And I absolutely agree with not sharing the name!

I love that it was someone from your church said that…..shouldn’t that be one of the LAST people passing judgement? Very rude!
