Lol, the title of this post made me laugh. I think you need to remind the pregnant ladies in your life to tone it down, you are with child too and don’t need any sass. If I could send you pickles and ice cream via internet, I would.

Oh my LORD can I relate! I’m not pregnant so I have no idea how difficult it can be. But I’m a nurse on a very busy floor, and we had 3 pregnant nurses all at the same time and they all whined and complained about it and begged me to do their work for them. I’m sorry, if you’re too tired or you can’t handle the work, just go out on leave. I don’t expect them to lift or transport 300 lb patients, but if you “can’t” get up and walk to the supply room for a box of tissues, you need to not be at work I’m sorry. One of the girls asked me to clean her shoes for her!!  Are you serious?!  Grumble! Thanks for letting me vent lol

@PasteMoo:  I can’t think of specifics, but I have had this sentiment at least once in my 30 years on the planet. 

I’m curious to know which instance was the one that set you over the edge though? I find this interesting.

@Big Truck:  Clean her shoes? Wow, that’s a little degrading. How hard is it to take off her shoe, and clean it when she can see it better?

My anger is not towards pregnant woman, but towards the people in my life who think I can’t do anything because I’m pregnant. 

This weekend was my nephews birthday and I swear at least 10 times someone told me to sit down, because I’m pregnant I guess standing isn’t something I can handle or accomplish. 

I also got yelled at for picking up my bonus son who is 4. I’ve been picking him up the entire time and my body is used to it. I’m not going to abandon my hurt crying child on the outside in order to be a “better mom” for the one on the inside.

@StuporDuck:  I’m not defending here at all because I don’t know the circumstance, but I can’t take my shoes off or put them on at this point in my pregnancy lol. Nor can I pick things up off of the floor Embarassed Totally stinks! However, I would never ask someone to clean my shoe regardless of the situation.

I know pregnant ladies have to go to the doctor alot, but I’m guessing its not 8 or 10 hours week and I’m sure there is a time to schedule doctor appointments besides Friday afternoons.

@mwitter80:  The inability to bend over and see feet is what my mind was focusing on. Having never carried to term, I don’t understand the physical inability to remove a shoe whatsoever. I guess that concept is foreign to me, so I didn’t consider that. ::Egg on face::

@StuporDuck:  It’s one of the most aggrivating things so far. I’m happy it’s almost flip flop season.  I was able to put on a pair of boots the other day that slip on, but then I couldn’t get them off. I had to shove a spatula into my boot to get it off lol.

@mwitter80:  That’s hilarious and I-want-to-hug-you sad at the same time. Is the spatula for swelling purposes too, or just for lack of being able to maneuver well enough to get a good grip?

Not sure about your region, but it’s been crazy-mild in MD, and we’re expecting all 70’s forecast for the next 10 days at least, so flip-flops are almost here! I’ll pray for good weather to come your way.

@StuporDuck:  I can’t get my hand to the bottom of my foot to pull anything off, so it was just used as an aid to slip inside the boot and push it off.  It was 72 today and I did wear flip flops to the grocery store. It was nice to be able to help myself today!

I see this a lot.

My friend is pregnant and the other day we went to a drive-up burger joint and she forgot to ask for ketchup. We were still in the car (hadn’t pulled out of the driveway yet) and she insisted that her boyfriend go and get her ketchup, even though he was driving, because she was “pregnant” and shouldn’t have to do it! She was only 7 weeks… I don’t understand why she couldn’t do it herself!

She also refuses to clean with any sort of chemicals…. and when I say chemicals she won’t even go near Clorox wipes to wipe down her counters. She just basically expects everyone else to do the cleaning because she is pregnant!

Weird, because I am 32 weeks pregnant on bedrest and I still do all the cooking and cleaning!

@MissDareDevil:  Ketchup I don’t get, but at 7 weeks, she might have a sensitive schnoz to chemical smells, which could induce nausea and vomiting. I’d let that one slide a little. Ketchup? No dice. Get yourself out and fetch it yoruself.
