Pregnancy Pregnancy

That offended me:/

 What has been the most offensive thing that someone has told you during your pregnancy? I had terrible morning sickness and lost lots of weight. I get soo offended when some one tells me I look ill.....like ok, I am having a rough pregnancy and that doesn't really help much:/:/ ugh.

****I have calmed down since posting this and reading from the replies I can def. see that at least Im not the only one....but it doesn't mean its ok. Unfortunately we can't control what comes out of other peoples mouth or what they think, we can only control ourselves. Its hard to do so being pregnant, I know, but lets be positive and not let the ignorant comments get to us.

I had an old neighbor of mine ask me today "oh your pregnant is it with the same guy ?" First off lady I don't even know you like that , second off what is it of your business and why would you even ask (btw I been with the same person for almost 11yrs)

Around here its common knowledge its probably not by the same guy. It was common for the Drs to even ask if the child I was carrying was my Husbands. People around my area never have kids by just one person!

I think it's so rude to ask. Especially when. You really don't even know the person.... I personally wld never ask someone that

Nothing really offends me to be honest. I mean who cares what anyone thinks. But I do get tired of hearing "OMG your on your 4th, you do know what causes that right?" The way I see it, I am married, my Husband works hard to afford our kiddos, I can have as many as I see fit!

 True, I should have worded it differently. But yea, it really gets old how people assume things or come up to touch your belly all the time. I dnt mind, but sometimes your just not in the mood to hear comments that are usaully made during pregnancy, especially from strangers.

"was it planned?" the people who ask me this don't mean it rudely, I'm married with other children and old enough to have another, but it's so annoying!!
