    Default People need to mind their own damn business!

    I'm fast approaching 18 weeks pregnant. And people just annoy the **** out of me at the moment!

    It's not your news to tell. It's my pregnancy. If my husband or I haven't told you, then get over it!
    Oh, it's not on Facebook? Really? Maybe because I haven't put it on there! If you were a close friend you'd know.

    I guess I've forgotten what it's like being pregnant and suddenly becoming "public property".

    Or maybe I just assumed that people would leave me the hell all since this is my third.

    Just a vent really. I just despise people sharing my news... With people I don't much care for at that!

    You don't think they are excited for you?

    I don't care if they're excited for me or not, everyone I've told knows I'm not making it "public knowledge" right now. And definitely keeping it off Facebook.

    It just shows a lack of respect and a big mouth...

    Ugh, sorry. Re reading that I sound awful.

    I don't mean to sound like a so-and-so, apparently when pregnant I'm a tad too blunt and then get confused when people take what I say to heart...

    I could have written that word for word! Also third pregnancy and refuse to tell mil (and certain people) any more details than I have to as I am sick of them blabbing to everyone esp other family members on DHs side that we haven't seen or spoken to since DD2 birth over 2 years ago!!!!

    Sorry, I really don't get this. Sorry you're cranky OP, but if you got a new job or bought a house, would you be annoyed about people talking about it? You're pregnant, it's good news. People like to share good news. I don't see why people are so funny about pregnancy news.

    Totally in the same boat. We have kept it pretty quiet this time, only really telling people when we see them & definitely keeping it off facebook. Then my sister accidentally tells one girl who then in turn has a big huff that she didn't know. She then goes & tells others before I've had the opportunity to. And now she's ignoring me. She's making it all about her rather than realizing the real reason we've been quiet.

    People love to share happy news. I don't get mad when my husbands family boast about our kids. They're just excited for them and happy.
