    Isn't the technical use of the ellipsis meant to convey that there was more to be said but it was deliberately left out?

    ETA: 1 daughter 1 bump, same baby daddy! But I'm one of three siblings, three different biological fathers, one who actually lives up to the name

    I've not noticed you ... Doing ... This ... As much.

    Oh heck. Now I look like I am mocking a stutter!

    Um, it may well have been judgment. Maybe it's my frame of mind. I caught up with a friend today who has separated from her husband and father of her kids and we were discussing the ins and outs of her having a child with a hypothetical new partner.

    So I interpreted the ... As thoughtful rather than judgmental.
