Does anyone else..

get annoyed with people who ask questions such as, but not limited to
*my period is late, could I be preg?
*Im experiencing cramps, am I in labor?
*I have missed my period, been throwing up the last 3 weeks, Im tired, I can smell a hotdog from 3 miles away, do you think Im preg.
First of all, WE are not doctors! Second, who knows YOUR body better than you? NO ONE. I get so annoyed with people who ask questions they SHOULD be asking their doctor!

  • oh and do they really think when they ask about could I be pregnant and they still have not had a period. When everyone keeps saying the same thing. You have to wait till you missed a period and then test. Do they really think they are going to get a different aswer then the milllion others that have asked the same question.

    i sometimes what ot say " Oh yes you are since you are the millionth person that has asked. You won the prize"

  • I think maybe they are just looking for emotional support- I don't think it's too much to ask for a bit of that. Maybe some people forget that the purpose of this site is for things like support and community and not to bash people- as it seems is so popular in most cases

  • I am slightly amused by the 'am I pregnant?' questions... but that is amusement for obvious reasons.

    my standard response is "I don't know, why don't you pee on the keyboard and then I'll be able to tell you."

  • OP here- i get that the site is for support, but honestly- how are we supposed to know the answer to any of these questions?! we arent. they arent asking for support because they are pregnant, they are asking people they dont know IF shes preg.

  • I don't get annoyed with them I figure maybe they can't afford to see a doctor unless they are sure and then have to see one for the prenatal care. That happens to people sometimes.

  • They are just looking to see if someone happens to have had their exact situation and how it turned out. They're amusing. They make me giggle, and who doesn't like a good giggle?
