Well meaning FIL told me he was surprised I was able to BF with such small b00bs, hmm ok. Another well meaning family member commented on how my DS was cluster feeding in the arvo/early night and that perhaps by then my milk had become "skinny milk" as I was too thin to keep "full milk" all day and that perhaps my skinny milk wasn't enough.
I told a friend how my newborn was feeding every 3 hours, especially overnight and she told me "he's a big greedy guts, don't let him feed that much! Give him a dummy if you think he's hungry".....she was also a mum....
Someone I was supposed to be friends with, when she found I was pregnant she was such a downer-- omg that sucks, your life is ruined-- type comments... Cut her loose, of course. Found out a fair while later through fb that she'd had a baby with some random about a year later. Moron
Grrr some people have NO filter. I had someone tell me the other day that I was ridiculous for wanting a babymoon (we have an OS holiday every year so splurging on a nice long weekend holiday to celebrate our pregnancy after a 2yr ivf journey seems ok to me) and that they hated the baby product I had bought.... needless to say I wont be discussing anything with this person again
I had quite a few stupid comments while I was pregnant, maybe because I look young, free and single? Lol
"Wow, looks like you've gotten yourself into some trouble there love! Is the father sticking around?" - random taxi driver
"Was it planned? Are you and the father still together?" - random hairdresser
FFS, I'm 25, self-employed, and had been with DF for 5 years!
From bitter and twisted SIL (again, while I was pregnant):
"Nup, I'm having a c-section, there's no way I'm getting my vagina all stretched and loose, YUCK!"
(Talking to my DF in front of me)
SIL - "Her boobs are HUGE now! You always hated big boobs"
DF - "Ah yeah well, that was before, that's changed now!"
SIL - "But you always preferred smaller girls with little boobs, always, ever since you were younger"
She went on and on and on, she didn't care the convo was frikkin weird, she made sure she made me feel fat, gross and ugly!
My step sister is due in November like I was got a fb msg from her after my D&C. Like the very same day "do u mind if start posting about my pregnancy haven't yet cause didnt want to upset you". And then after my blighted ovum few weeks ago from the same step sister "oh that doesn't count as a miscarraige". I seriously wanted to rip her to shreds
