why can't i just vent without advice?

I am so sick of my cousin Jill, who is by the way the foremost expert on pregnancy - at least in her own warped mind.  Everything I post about my pregnancy she has a solution.  I can't ever just be venting, no one can, not without her glorious wisdom.

Today as I was getting ready to head out, I looked at my Weather Bug app and it said it was 80 degrees, at 10AM on April 1.  I cringed.  I'm 4 months pregnant, will be huge by the time summer kicks into high gear, and I know it's going to suck big time.  I live in El Paso where it's not uncommong to be at least 100 for days and days on end.  We also don't have AC in the house, we have a swamp cooler, which sucks as well.

So on my FB update I put that.  It's 80 degrees at 10AM on April 1, not looking forward to a summer pregnancy.  Oh wise one responds with "maybe you should take a long vacation to CO and deliver up there."  First off, my doctors are here, and I'm a high risk case.  Why the hell would I go up to CO to deliver?  Secondly, maybe she's figured out how to shit gold but I haven't, and maintaining two households just for shits and giggles is stupid.  

The other day, I put I was feeling sick - like I said I'm 4 months pregnant - she flipped out saying I needed to go to the ER bc I shouldn't be sick past the first trimester.  It was a hot day, I was uncomfortable for too long, I felt sick, calm down spaz!

There's so much more, but this is already long.  Thanks to anyone who read it.  I would take her off my FB completely but that would cause way more drama than I care to deal with.

I know I'm looking into that.  Just had to vent about it.  She's so annoying.

It's not really 24 hr sickness, it comes and goes but man when it comes it really kicks my ass!

It's facebook - there's no need to take anything on there seriously.  Some people feel the need to comment on everything regardless of how clever/funny/relevant/helpful their comment is.  She sounds like one of them.  If I were you, I'd just ignore it and let it go.

Peace,

Kat

Well...here in CO it can get pretty darn hot too...we get 100 degree days too sometimes over 100 and I too am not looking forward to a summer pregnancy...She is not an expert at all because I feel uncomfortable and sick too and I am almost 6 months along! Sometimes people just like to give opinions even though you do not ask for them!!!

ugh, i have people like that on my fb too. unfortunately they're relatives too so you can't just delete them. but i feel your pain. everything related to pregnancy or raising my kids, they have a solution or a "i did it this way" story... good luck with your summer pregnancy!

yes, exactly, I have to put up with her bc she's family ugh!  thanks for the good luck, we just installed our window AC in our bedroom, since our house uses a swamp cooler, so I'll be hanging out in there a lot I think lol.
