Should I even be mad??

Ok, so it seems like everyone is on facebook, for me it's the only way I can keep up with a few people from school because we live so far apart. Well, a friend from high school just asked a bunch of us if we knew what she could take for a stuffy nose, she just found out she's pregnant and had no clue. Well, I'm four months pregnant so I just told her what my dr told me, and a few of her friends who don't even know me decided that I was an idiot and that I was trying to kill her baby. Maybe it's just my horomones, but this just seems a little extreem, I was only trying to help because she asked and they just trashed me, also, none of them are pregnant and have never been pregnant, so I want to know how they know more than my dr. Should I even take offense to this or are my horomones getting the better of me?

  • i mean me personally would take offense to it because im just like that... if i feel disrespected i jump on it and its very hard for me to bite my tongue. But also if they wanna spend their time "thinking" they are right or trashing someone than they are losers... im sure you wouldnt give a stranger, LET ALONE A FRIEND, advice that would "kill" or "hurt" their baby.... forget those assholes.... people are just stupid and ignorant....

    hormones might play a part too though lol.... but they are still stupid! ha.

  • I say screw them and dont pay it any attention. You were just passing along advice given to you by your doc. As far as u know its fine. Yeah I would say screw them thats a bit of an immature comment for them to make. It a damn bit extreme also. Screw them!

  • I wouldn't be mad. I made a rule with myself to never get bent or take parenting advice from people that have never been pregnant or have children. They don't know.
    Besides, your Dr. recommended you take a certain medicine.
    I would brush them off.

  • Thanks guys, I think what bothers me most is that I AM pregnant and getting the info from my OBGYN and they AREN'T pregnant and getting the info from websites....then again these same people have posted a few nasty remarks when I mention my pregnancy, like I'm trying to "steal her thunder".....just feels childish to me, she's 6 weeks I'm 4 months, I don't want to steal anyone's anything, I just figured it would be polite to give a reason for my opinion so people like them didn't think I was talking out my ass.....

  • Sounds like your friends are right..
    Indeed, if none of them have been pregnant, then why do they know more than you?
    Your OB probably tells you a lot of things that aren't true.
    Switch to a midwife.

  • I would just ignore them, send her a message NOT on her wall. And tell her... I'm also pregnant and my doctor told me this... then tell her that if she feels uncomfortable then to just use kleenex till she talks to her dr.

  • why ask advice if you arent capable of taking on board answers and then being adult enough to make a decision. some time s people will take anyreason they can to to people hate. and i CANNOT BELIEVE TAT PEOPLE WOULD GO ABOUT PEOPLE HATING A PREGNANT WOMAN? they are out of order what are they trying to do ? stress your baby out also... have you looked at it liked tat, they are letting off at you about one pregnant woman and then they are doing worse to you knowingly. wankers
