Ok so yes we are pregnant that does not mean we are disabled. I'm tired of people telling me I can't go do this with them or I can't go there because I'm pregnant. So what I'm pregnant. That does not mean I'm disabled. Why do people seriously try to treat me that way. I am just like every other person out there I'm just doing something amazing and growing another person inside of me. Does anyone else have this issue or is it just me because I am so young?

I don't have this problem. But if anyone asked me to do anything adventurous I'd probably turn them down anyway. hehe.

What kind of things do they say you can't do or participate in?

Everything. I can't go to the bar and just hang out and can't go to the clubs with everyone. I can't go to Cedar Point (amusement park near me) for the haunted houses. I can't go to haunted houses. I mean its not like they are going rock climbing or anything. Maybe its just me being hormonal and single and starting to get cabin fever living with my mom.

Most people in my life are fine, except a few people. My mom treats me like I'm an invalid, but is afraid to step on my toes. She has started a bad habit, she'll say Lindsey (my sister who has a 15 month old) didn't do this, or Lindsey told me you shouldn't be doing that, instead of just coming out and saying she disagrees with me.

And my husband will try to wait on me hand and foot, which drives me crazy because he won't lift a finger doing any of the chores around the house. I can get my own water, or another serving of the dinner I made, how about you empty the dishwasher or throw a load of clothes in the washer? Sorry, this is the end of my little rant lol

Everyone else just asks how I'm feeling and moves on. They don't bug me too much.

True, even if you did choose not to go on some of the rides you can still go along and have fun. Also you can have fun at the bar without drinking!

I personally would HATE to go clubbing when pregnant but that's just me, and I'm probably older than you hehe

Hope they cut you some slack and let you hang out with them like a normal person!

The only thing I have had so far is when i was picking up dog poop one day in the backyard and my neighbor came over and started helping which I told her not to do then she told me I shouldn't be doing it at all anyway. The thing is usually I clean the litter box and my husband picks up the dog poop but since you aren't supposed to deal with cat litter/feces/urine while pregnant we switched jobs so now my job is to pick up poop, no big deal to me.

I am not showing much yet and no strangers have thought I was pregnant yet, but that is when it gets annoying for me. They think they need to hold the door, or help you with everything just because you are pregnant.

Sorry you're having to deal with it when you just want to get out and do some fun stuff. Just do what you want to do and ignore their opinions.

I love it when people hold the door for me just because they see I'm pregnant! lol. However, I get what you're saying. My dad's the worst! When we were moving in this past August, he kept telling me not to lift this box, don't lift that box, don't do anything, oh my god you're pregnant you shouldn't be doing this stuff! Seriously, I'm not going to just stand around while everyone else does all the work for me. I'm just pregnant, not an invalid. I wasn't even lifting anything heavy, he just freaks out. lol.

I totally relate to what you're saying.

at first, I loved it. My BF's parents would not let me get up to put my dirty dishes in the dishwasher, people would always carry heavy stuff for me, they always told me to sit or rest while they were working on something for me... But after a few months, I got tired of being told what to do. We're moving end of December and I'm tired of people telling me that I'll be tired, or not to do too much, or try to slow me in some project telling me not to take too much on my shoulders cause I need time to rest ... uhg!!!!!!

I have people around me who constantly do that. I was bringing in a ten pound bag of oranges one day and my cousin had a fit that I was lifting that much. Huh???? I do pole dancing still, I lift my whole body weight all the time and trust me I weigh more than ten pounds lol. If my doctor is fine with this, then other people should be. It's like they just want me to sit back and gain a 100 pounds just because I'm pregnant.

I live near Cedar Point too and was disappointed I couldn't go this summer. I wouldn't want to go and not ride the rides, that would be boring. I'm also going to miss skiing this winter. And worst of all I missed out on a Porsche track day because my brother took my dad since I was pregnant. Oh well, lots of stuff to look forward to after the baby comes (if I can find a sitter, lol).
