Re: Spinoff: People's stupid comments

Most of the stupid comments (or at least the ones I can remember, LOL) have been during this pregnancy. My first prenatal visit, the NP walked in and said, "So, was this a pill oops?" Because clearly, I guess, no one in their right minds would PLAN a third child??? UGH. Then just this weekend, at a family gathering, my sister's FIL and MIL walked in the room, and her MIL says to me, "Oh, you're getting chubby!" About 3 seconds later, her FIL says, "Wow, you've gained some pounds!" Niiiiice. You'd think a woman who's had four kids would know what *not* to say to a pregnant woman, but apparently not!

Re: Spinoff: People's stupid comments

I am pg now so the brain isn't working so well. . . but the worst/stupidest pg related comments I get ALL the time when I am not pg is my family (aunt and grandma) asking me if I am pg again. nope, just haven't lost the weight. Thanks. I feel better. Sad thing is, last time I saw them (when I was pg but hadn't found out yet, was the one time they didn't ask me if I was pg.

Re: Spinoff: People's stupid comments

We went to tell my ILs we were pregnant and these are the two comments that made me....well yeah

"I'm too young to be a grandma...no this isn't happening" MIL

"So what do you do with those? Put them in the bathroom with some newspaper?" BIL

Yeah...Dhs family is special. Glad to say they are better now, but I haven't gotten pregnant with #2 yet. Can't wait to see the reaction to that one!

"We were kind of hoping for a smurf!"

Besides, it isn't really getting 'fixed'. It's getting 'broken'. 'IT' is obviously working, and you don't fix something that is working.

What I don't like are the 'perfect' family comments. I have a girl and a boy, and so many people talk to me like that is some sort goal to reach. As if if we had had ( grammar ) a girl for #2 instead of a boy, she would have been less than 'perfect'.

I'm the oldest of 6 and I got all sorts of comments about 'don't your parents know what causes that' or 'don't you have a tv'. Imagine how a teenager feels about those comments about their parents. It is annoying as an adult, and mortifying as a teen.

Re: Spinoff: People's stupid comments

Mine... kinda weird/funny.. I was about 35 weeks pregnant.. this time around.. and went eat out.. and the waitress kept looking at my belly .. ( I posted the bikini shot at 30+ weeks a few days ago ) and I jokenly said.. " No I am not fat.. I am almost due ) she made me stand up and show her my belly .. ( I did bc I loved being pregnant and showing off those curves.. ) well.. she rubs my belly goes off and returns with a extra plate of food for me while I waited on my food .. and said that I needed to eat some more.. bc I was just to tiny and the baby would be small... ( he was born 2 weeks early and weighed 8 pds 2 ozs... ) I ate the freeB... and told her not to worry about my baby .. he was fine.. ( while scarfing down the baked potatoe, bread and veggies )

My cousin went eat out.. ( yeah ok ya get it... we B hungry folk ) and she just had her dd 5 days b4 but she was in the nicu.. well the waitress comes over and rubs her belly and asked when she was due... my cousin said.. I had her 5 days ago.. and the waitress thought she said due IN 5 days.. and said something like " I bet you are ready to deliver and get some of that weight off " my cousins dh said.. " MAM.. WE HAD OUR BABY " my cousin said she turned all kinds of shades of red and said sorry .. left and never came back .. another waitress served them

this would have come out of my mouth!

We're expecting #4 and we get "So your DH will get fixed now, right?" Uh... someone besides him and I have that to decide and we don't see it as something broken, so uh... nah... it works... we're leaving it alone.

My MIL is horrid about the boy comments. Every pregnancy I've ever had was referred to with male pronouns, the worst was when I miscarried at 14 weeks and she said "So what did you do? You know you lost my grandson." And she still wonders why I threw the phone across the room (I had been laying on the couch, drugged up after having just gotten home from the D&C).

When I told my mother I was pregnant, she goes "And this will be your last." She SAID it, didn't ask, didn't imply...she commanded it.
