  • i dont mind that every1 cares about the baby but she was saying i wouldnt matter at all like i was worthless and would be forgotten. i could be sick as hell and no one would care and things like that.

  • Nice mom you have! Wow! Well, I know my in-laws make sure my son is here before they come over, and he definitely takes precedence over us with most of our family, but if something were going on with one of us, they'd care!

  • Your mother said that to you? No, it's not true. Your life changes, but not the way she said. The people who truly love you now, will still love and care about you  after the baby is born. Of course, they will pay attention to the baby.  You would be upset if they didn't.  But, you "made" the baby.  How amazing is that?  Don't let her get to you. You are not worthless

  • While the baby will be a the new hot commodity, you will not ever be worthless. Congrats on your baby and don't let stupid comments like that bother you - no matter who the person is saying them! Be good to yourself - now and after the baby comes. I hope your DH is supportive of you!

  • Yes, ppl will still care about you. The baby will just get more attention, that's all.
