    Default Sorry... Oh wait why am I apologising?

    I’m 37 weeks today and I feel great! But I’m starting to feel like the odd one out! Most of the comments I’ve been getting over the last week make me feel bad for feeling so well at this stage of my pregnancy. I just don’t get it… I actually found myself apologising to a lady today who called me a b!tch for looking so good. Why should I be sorry for having such a great pregnancy?????
    Sorry for the rant, but I’m not sorry for feeling great and enjoying the last few weeks of my pregnancy

    Don't worry about other people.

    It is more of a reflection of themselves as they may have had a terrible time when they were pregnant and are just jealous.

    I get the same comments. I am 23 weeks and really have had no issues. If people say something I just laugh and walk away.

    More power to you! If I've learnt anything during pregnancy its that other people have tendency to suck and be really rude. Some people seem to think that pregnant ladies are public domain.

    Some stranger called you a b!tch for looking good? Wow. What a b!tchy thing to say, I hope the irony hits her later.

    37 weeks and you're feeling good and all that, good for you. Ignore these lovely fellow humans and rock on. Yeah, I said rock on.

    Ignore them! I felt great up until my contractions started with both pregnancies.

    Well I'm jealous - but in a good way!
    It's great that you're still feeling well, and by the sounds of it, looking well!

    Don't apologise, embrace it!

    I have felt great throughout my pregnancy too - next to no morning sickness, have been eating really healthily & keeping active, hardly any aches & pains, etc. I have a close friend though who has been the complete opposite so have played down how well I feel for her benefit. But you shouldn't need to apologise for how you look. It is a great feeling though, hopefully I'll feel the same for the next 6 weeks .

    I've felt really good too since my first trimester ended and hope I feel as good as you do at 37 weeks!!

    Anyone who says anything negative to you is obviously just jealous!!
