don't you get tired of hearing....

...you're really starting to show.
...you should/shouldn't eat that.
...you should/shouldn't do that.
and all of the other well meant but sometimes very annoying advise from EVERYONE around! I am just finding it irritating that people are constantly telling me what I should and shouldn't do or commenting on my appearance. There is lady that I work with that feels it is her need to tell me if my butt is getting any bigger. I don't know why it is that people feel that just because your pregnant that means they can say anything they want. There are other people that anytime I do anything they treat me as though I am a 2 year old and start telling me that I can't do it (such as lifting something that is 5 pounds or even bending over to do something- even though I have no restrictions). Anyone else having this and think it is a bit much?

Re: don't you get tired of hearing....

YEP - but it's worse now for me... wait until you start hearing...

Are you still here? You should try -

Walking,
Spicy food,
Sex...

That'll bring on labor..... and you hear this from people who have never had children. Obviously, they don't know that a lot of walking (as well as sex) hurts when you're 40 + weeks pregnant... at least it does for me. And spicy food just gives me heartburn, which I get easily enough without eating anything. I know they mean well, but I'm just a little edgy/anxious being 5 days late and NOT progressing AT ALL.

Re: don't you get tired of hearing....

Haven't gotten the first yet. The other two....I wanted some chocolate....(not alot...but I'm a choclate freak I can't just quit cold turkey) So I told my mom I might bake something and she's like 'ya know you really shouldn't eat that.....' BITE ME....LOL

DH and I moved...So his parents and one of his sisters came up to make sure I did NOT move a thing.....when DH brought stuff up I'd unpack the box...MIL 'You really shouldn't do that.' Gee who else will then? Ugh...not like I was lifting alot...

Re: don't you get tired of hearing....

I am just about 3 months along and already I have people telling me not to eat this or not to drink that. My brother yelled at me thinking I had moved a queen size mattress set into another room. It's crazy. I think everyone else is crazy when someone is pregnant. It's not me at all. I just wanted to strangle my boyfriends grandmother. She said i shouldn't eat a donut cause it's bad for me when she's the one who offered it to me in the first place. Crazy I tell you.
