So, I live in a small town. For the most part I love it, but it does mean that news travels fast. It's been getting around that I am pregnant the last few days, which is fine, but oh dear. Twice today I was asked, "Are you excited?" What am I supposed to say to that? "Ugh, no, I dread the whole thing!" ... Of course we're excited! lol And even if we weren't 100% on board (my first was a BC baby, so I KNOW the excited-but-hesitant feeling, too) it's not like we'd go around announcing that.

Maybe I'm just extra touchy lately, but it kills me some of the things people say to pregnant women. And this is only the beginning!

Oh yeah, the "you know what causes that ..." Someone I am not very fond of said that and I replied, "After 9 months of trying, I think we finally figured it out". I think I was in a bad mood that day

That's an awesome response. Too bad we were not trying.

Yeah I've gotten the "you know what causes that" line before with my second. For some reason people think a pregnancy gives them the right to say the rudest things
