Hi!

I am five months pregnant. Yesterday I found a big spider in the kitchen, and did what I usually do, I took a kleenex and squished it! But this time I started to cry and feel so bad for the life I had taken!! Is this normal? Do you get this emotional when killing bugs?

I hate spiders they really freak me out, but I will still catch them and take them outside. I just feel too bad when I squish them.

 Do you feel just as bad for other bugs? Do you for example have a fly swatter?

Depends, ants, roaches, beetles etc no and most of the time not flies either but I remember with my first pregnancy refusing to kill a spider because it was "someones baby" LOL

This pregnancy I have released a fly from a spiders web LOL
