Is it wrong....

... that I want to strangle women that complain about being pregnant??
Now I understand that not everyone enjoys being pregnant and all of the uncomfortable things that come with it, but I do not want to see it!!
I complain a hell of a lot as most of you know by now, but I will NEVER complain about being pregnant no matter how uncomfortable I am.
I may mention being uncomfy or how nausea sucks or something, but I will never say that I HATE being pregnant.
And to say it on a website where SO many women struggle to even ovulate?? Really???
I hope I don't make anyone mad that may be from the site I'm talking about but that just really rubbed me the wrong way.
Like I said, I understand the discomfort and needing to complain about whatever is bothering you, but to straight up say that you hate being pregnant on a website where the majority of the women struggle TTC and where the majority of the women that are currently pregnant struggled.... it's just insensitive.

If you don't like being pregnant, that is totally fine, not everyone enjoys it... but how about not posting it on particular sites like that? Be sensitive to those still having difficulties, to those that would give everything to get pregnant....

I completely agree with you. Its a bonus that you are feeling well also.

Since I consider you the queen of early testing. I posted a pic on my blog this morning at 9dpiui. It shows up better on my phone but I think we have a line VERY faint. I would love for you to check it out and give my your opinion. It looks alot better on my phone then my blog pic though.

Amen! If there was a Like button I would so push it. It drives me nuts when women complain about being pregnant when I would give an arm or a leg (or both!) to experience the flutters of life in my womb.

I agree 100%.. if I ever get a bfp--I will rejoice every time I'm sick, or hurting, or feel uncomfortable. It would all be a big huge blessing!

After 4 years one month and 17 days of TTC, we got a sticky BFP! Every single time I threw up, every single time my sciatica acted up, every single time I had heartburn, every single time I got up in the middle of the night to pee I thanked the Good Lord for the blessing growing inside me! I will never, ever take that for granted!

As we are anxiously TTC #2 and again, never will take for granted pregnancy.

Some people loose that empathy sensor the minute they get their BFP...

I wish I could "like" this post. I completely agree. I enjoy every moment of being pregnant. Mostly because I don't know how long i'll be that way. Its hard for people to understand the feelings of others having not been through it. But you are totally justified. I once had a "friend" that smoked the first 3weeks of her pregnancy with her third and complained that she didnt want to be pregnant until the NEXT month. Knowing We had been struggling TTC for years. I wanted to smack the crap out of her. Needless we're no longer friends
