Perhaps I should just shut my mouth. I am soooooooooo tired, of pregnant women complaining to me about how sick they feel.. how every smell makes them want to vomit. The back aches, the swollen feet.. bla bla bla. Now, granted... most of these women, do not know what I've been through. So, I usually have good control. Some of these women, DO know what I've been through, but don't feel it insensitive to chat this way. Uh.. okay. So, last week a friend of mine, who's about 7 weeks along starts talking about how she had to buy dish detergent for $5, because it was the only one with no scent... and how she's just "sick sick sick, and sick of being sick"... so, I had enough. (she is unaware of my situation, but I couldn't hold my tounge any more) I told her, that being sick during pregnancy didn't mean the world was going to end... and since she wanted a baby, she should be thrilled to be having all of these symptoms, and how I would LOVE to be having all of those symptoms right about now. Then, I told her I hope she is feeling better soon and left it at that. Hmmm.. she said a word to me since.
