Stupid Lawyers…

I’m not feeling like reposting the whole spiel here so if you’re interested in my take on the commercials flipping out about Paxil side effects and birth defects, it’s here.

Names/Terms Not to Use on Pregnant Women

Tuesday, October 28th, 2008

This should be somewhat self-explanatory…

Prego
Preggers
Buddha Belly
A bun in the oven

I also don’t understand why people respond to a pregnancy announcement with “I didn’t know you/they were trying.”  What I’d like to say in response to that: “I guess we/they succeeded.”  I guess maybe it’s a kneejerk response for people but… is it really necessary to say everything that comes into one’s head???

And for the love of all things holy, do not touch my belly!!!!  Mind my personal space, please!

Things Not To Say to a Pregnant Woman

Thursday, October 16th, 2008

I’ve been able to keep the pregnancy a secret from everyone except my co-workers.  (They kinda noticed the sound of me puking my guts out.)  One of the main reasons is that I’d prefer people not to comment that I’m “showing already” because uh yeah… I’m not?  It’s just belly fat?

Other things not to say:

-your horror stories of bleeding and being on 3 months of bedrest. (Why do people even tell those????)
-your story about your sister/friend/distant cousin who miscarried. (Thank you… I’m already terrified enough of that!)
-asking “Are you pregnant?” unless you can physically see the baby descending. (Cue Dave Barry…)
-anything incredibly gross like tales of your daughter’s night as a trauma nurse, especially when said pregnant lady has morning sickness or is trying to eat. (I seriously have people at work who do this.)

I managed not to throw up yesterday… and threw up so violently this afternoon that it hit my skirt. (Thank God I had spare clothes in the car…)
