are any of you getting that sympathetic look and the "how are you coping?" question? i get it all the time and its really annoying. do i look like i'm in bits at the thought of having a baby or something?

I wanna hang a sign around my neck saying "I'm really happy, my little girl is healthy, I have an amazing husband and we cant wait to have this baby"

just cos Rebecca was unplanned doesnt mean she's not wanted!!!!

I know people are just trying to be nice but FFS!!!!

sorry for the rant!

I'm sorry people ask you those types of questions. I'm sure it's annoying.

Thankfully I haven't had too many of those questions asked because barely anyone knows I am pregnant. I'm sure when I start showing it will happen though...

i thought that too and i'd tell them that being this far into pregnancy sucks, but they just look at me funny and ask if i'm ready etc.

I'm getting the SURPRISED/SHOCKED/SYMPATHETIC response b/c even though it was unplanned, everyone just assumes this was an accident and feels bad for me. Its so annoying.

i get that in college mainly. all the girls there look at me with a look that says "oh that poor girl, i'd hate if it was me, i wonder how she copes" when really i am just so thrilled to have this baby. i see her as a miracle not an accident.

I don't even get asked questions on how I'm doing from other people. Not SO's family. No one.

F That! I swear the next person who asks me "How are you feeling?" is going to get my fist down there throat!

Sorry to be so violent but seriously do I look sick? I don't think I do...then chances are I FEEL fine!
