I'm 8 months pregnant, and there is this other mom that is also due right around the same time that drives me BONKERS! I would call her out on her BS except for the fact that it would create a lot of drama that I just don't want to deal with, so I've just kept up with her and pushed my irritation aside.
When the pregnancy was very new she was very very pro c-section, vaccinations, and formula.
As the pregnancy progressed and we moved through the months, it turned out many of us in our group are very natural/attachment type parents that are pro natural childbirth, pro VBAC/VBA2C, pro breastfeeding, delayed/no vaccination.
As the majority opinion started to turn this way, all of the sudden she has alllllllways been all about the vbac and natural birth, despite posts from the beginning of her pregnancy stating she would DIE if her baby wasn't a c-section by 37 weeks, she would never endanger her babies health by trying to have a vaginal birth, if she doesn't have a 100% monitored epidural birth she and baby will die, etc. But of course now, she will be having a totally drug free natural VBAC and allowed to go into labor whenever her body decides. Even though at 10 weeks she claimed doing this would kill everyone involved.
Now granted, yes you can change your opinion on how to birth, it just amused me that it completely coincided with everyone elses opinions on how birth should go.
And now, she has every ailment in the book that every other pregnant mom has. She talks about going to labor and delivery weekly (my god, they must hate her there and can't wait for her to give birth just so she'll leave them the hell alone with all her crying wolf).
Someone has herpes? All of the sudden SO DOES SHE!
Someone has low amniotic fluid? OH MY GOD, SO DOES SHE, AND HER DOCTOR IS MONITORING HER FOR IT!
Someone has pre-e? Guess what?! SO DOES SHE.
And on top of all of this, she claims to be a L&D nurse, yet knows next to nothing about actually working in L&D.
Is this a disease?! Why do people feel the need to steal everyone elses health ailments to turn the attention on themselves? I don't understand!
