Re: If I ever get pregnant...

It doesn't mean they aren't super happy about the baby. The gender thing I will never understand because I never had this super huge desire to have a specific gender but to each their own. It confuses me when people ask if I'm happy or upset to be having a boy or girl etc but I just blow them off. I have experienced excrutiating back and sciatic nerve pain during the point that I cannot walk and am in tears. It doesn't change the fact that I love every moment of that pregnancy but I still needed someone to listen to me, otherwise I felt alone and the pain overwhelmed me. I guess I just don't believe it is fair to judge anyone's pregnancy and whether they are greatful for the baby or not because they whine about normal pregnancy complaints.
Oh I understand and I think people can complain, but like others said, this is the section for struggles. Here we are supportive of each other- when we find out close friends are pregnant and we have jealousy gnawing at us. I had a bad day when I posted, came here to find support, but first scrolled down past the due dates section and the thread highlighted was about feeling fat, and I instantly felt that same jealousy. It's what it is. I am so very grateful for the Struggles and Support thread.

I completely see your point, and appreciate you bringing it up, and really- I can complain to my husband or close family and friends in person. Because as with everything on the internet- sometimes things are better done off of the internet. Sorry if my post offended you. It was certainly not my intention at all.
