i have this one friend that is a good friend but she just acts like a know it all when it comes to pregnancy. a few weeks ago she said...YOURE GOING TO GO OVER YOUR DUE DATE BECAUSE YOU ARENT DILATED OR EFFACED! stuff like that she always says to me and it irritates me.
well she knows i had an appt yesterday and asked if i am dilated or anything i said no still not dilated and i have an induction sched for mon (3 days after my DD)

    i said no i dont want to talk about it because i still have a week and im spotting blah blah.. she sas OH THATS YOUR MUCUS PLUG... i said no im spotting SHE SAID NOPE THATS YOUR MUCUS PLUG i told her i had to go and just hung up.
    she didnt look up my hoo haw and know thats what it was!? its freaking irritating her acting like my damn dr and acting like she knows MORE than i do...JUST because she had her son 4 months before i will have mine... holy crap it annoys the shit out of me.

    is it rude of her to continue to act this way when she OBVIOUSLY knows it irritates me? or is it rude of me to tell her i dont want to talk about HER "KNOWING" WHEN I WILL DELIVER MY CHILD...

  • How are you feeling anyways?! Did your contractions stop last night?

  • honestly a lot of people are like that! i pretend im an expert on pregnancy but im never like that. i tell people facts i've read or i dont say anything at all, but i knew a LOT of people during my pregnancy who were rude like that.

YEAH YOUR DEF GOING WAY AFTER YOUR DUE DATE! i let her know not everyone loses it like that and she said...YES THEY DO AND YOU GO INTO LABOR LIKE RIGHT AFTER YOU LOSE IT.

  • eh...I have friends like that too. Just blow it off. Don't let it bother you. Just ignore it and yes...smiling and nodding works wonders!!! I do it all day with my aunt! lol.

  • wow... she sounds like my mom, if she slips up and says 2+2=5, 2+2 will NEVER =4.

    never wrong, know it all.. i hate it too!

    i guess whether or not it's rude is your call... you know your friend outside of the pg situation, if she continues to insist on aggrivating you to "prove" you wrong, she must not be too good a friend...
