Surely I am not the only one. Here i am 8 months pregnant, and am soooo sick of the women who seem to think they know everything! Also sick of people saying that I must be in a hurry to have my baby already…then when I say “no, even with my health issues I’m okay and baby will be here when he’she is ready”, they say oh haha you won’t be saying that in a week.
Seriously shut the heck up already!!
WOW needed to get that one off my chest.

My DH’s friend gave me the, “You’re STILL pregnant?!?” A few weeks ago when he was over. I’m only 30w now. -_-
Keep that bean where he is and enjoy your last few weeks. 🙂

@bunnymama: Haha! I had a old friend from school write on Facebook “Hurry up and have your baby already, you’ve been pregnant for like a year!”
Not quite – only 35 weeks…
Thanks 🙂 I think my little one is quite happy to stay put for another few weeks.

You guys need to listen to “pregnant women are smug” on youtube. It sums most of these ladies up pretty well. Warning: may contain mild profanity.
Edit, realizing now you meant people in general. Not just preggo ladies. Still good for a laugh, though! Congrats on the pregnancies. I can’t wait to join the club in a few years 🙂

This is what I am most afraid of. I think one of the few people I will seriously be taking advice from is my mum (an OBGYN surgeon), my own OBGYN and midwife, my doctor family friends and nurse friends, as well as maybe others. But it’s easy to weed the crap out from the ‘helpful’ stuff (if that makes sense). Hope you and the little one are fine!

Aww.. I understand the irritation. I had a lot of people telling me that I “must be ready to be done my pregnancy” because of all of my complications. They always looked so dumbfounded when I told them that I loved being pregnant and wasn’t ready to be done… lol
Most people don’t mean to come off so irritating…or at least I’d like to think that. haha. It’s just an opportunity for people to poke fun.
There are SO many people that think because they had a particular experience, that their “solution” is the solution for everyone, and that is FOR SURE annoying. I had so many people trying to offer the perfect solution to getting my DD to sleep, or blaming me because I never “established good sleep habits early on.” That flat out pissed me off. I make sure when I share my experiences, that I don’t come off as all-knowing. Pregnancy, birth and infants are so different from one case to another.

@echapman:Oh I will have a look at that still 🙂 Thank you!
@OrchidsandCandles: Good idea! It is pretty easy to work out what to actually remember of things people say, but it’s more the constant unsolicited advice. I can’t have dinner at my SIL at the moment because she will talk about babies and non-stop advice the entire visit, and my pregnancy hormones just make me snap now.
@urchin: I wish my SIL thought like you when it comes to sharing her experience. I can’t go to her house without sitting there the entire time being told how I should do this, and why I shouldn’t buy that. It’s driving me crazy!

@MrsSmokey: ugh…that’s flat out irritating. I work in an office where EVERYONE has small children, so men and women alike, they all had an opinion on how I should do things. Even how many kids I should have and when… haha.. I just laugh it off.

This woman I work with ALWAYS asks me if I’m drinking water and tells me to drink more water every time she sees me. I literally have a water bottle everywhere I go with me while I’m at work…
