As some of you know, a couple of my friends are pregnant. One works at the office right beside me and she was just outside taking a smoke break....yes, you read right!!!! A SMOKE BREAK!!!!!!! All the while she kept talking about the crib she just purchased and how she spent so much money at Babies R Us. I could just jump up and down screaming and crying right now. I WANT A BFP AND I WANT IT NOW!!!!!! Normally I'm not soooooo bad about it, just keep saying my time will come but dangit I've had enough today.
aww sweetie i am sorry that happend.i know how you feel that happens to me all the time i see pg women and get upset but i think its normal.don't worry it "May" pass lol.if not do what i do,go into a room take a pillow and scream into it! oh yeah don't forget to put it over your mouth so no one else hears ya lol
I'm sorry! I understand how you feel. A smoke break??? Jeeeeeez!!!
Go do something (the screaming pillow is a good one!) to relieve your anger...
and you'll feel better....
You want me to come and slap her?

I hope you get your bfp soon sweetie
I agree - I would have probably gotten so ticked I would have read her the riot act for smoking. That is my biggest frustration - I am so ready to be a mom, but I see so many others who get pregnant and don't seem to give a care for the health of their little one. I always ask why? Why are they blessed with a child and I am not? It makes me want to cry.
I see it all the time too. People that aren't even trying to conceive fall pregnant and they aren't even careful with their eating and drinking habits. But yet those of us who care have a hard time. It stinks. Stay strong it will get better with time.

You wonder how people who do things like that deserve a baby more than you. I know that feeling. After seeing things like that or seeing parents who obviously have better things to do with their time than watch their kids, I come home and shower...and cry. Or, pretend to nap and pull the pillow screaming trick!
I'm sorry that you have to work with this person!!!
That's awful hun! I also would have probably said something to her, in today's age we have enough information to know better! I hope that her baby doesn't suffer any ill effects of her ignorance.
