Wow, some people are heartless idiots. Hugs Lemonhead (and everyone else that needs it!)
On announcing we're pregnant again.
"Well you're going to have your hands full, 2 babies....."
Yes, there will be 17 months between my kids, but we planned it that way. And as a mum, I'm always going to be busy so shut the f**k up!
And announcing before 12 weeks to my aunt.. "don't forget miscarriage runs in the family" WTF! I'm sorry you never got to have children I really am, but miscarriage does not "run" in any family!

I also hate when people don't like something and refer to it as 'gay'.
I generally respond with something like "it might not be a pleasant experience but gay is not the word you're looking for..." idiots.

'Oh, you're going to have your hands full'..
(I have 3 daughters and a baby on the way) and I swear I hear this at least 2-3 times a week.

I know most people mean well when they say it, but I hate, "You're so lucky you didn't have to go through labour" or "you're so lucky you had a caesarean!" It would be okay, except for the fact that I feel far from lucky and whenever anyone says this to me, I think, "Okay, so this person and I will never be close friends," which is kinda unfair, but it just irritates me so much.
I actually also hate, "How did you do it?" when people notice/find out I've lost a decent amount of weight. It can go a few ways, and often it's the "Oh wow, I've never heard of that... what's involved?" kinda curious way... but I hate it because it could be a, "Well, I think you should have just exercised and ate well!" way where they like to tell you how stupid you are for having had surgery (even though it's working, obviously... and exercise and eating well never did for me...).

"You can't say you'll never have another baby, you're only 24!"
Yes I'm only 24 but if you'd experienced a pregnancy and birth like DSs then you'd understand. Besides, it's my decision AND we have always said only 2.
