to get wound up with people going on about being pregnant

Now i know i could just remove or hide these people on fb, but it really winds me up in rl too when pregnant women go on relentlessly about the fact that they are pregnant or about pregnancy related ailments etc. For example this morning ive seen a status update on how many times one person got up in the night to wee, one with a back ache, and one who hasn't been offered a seat on the train. OK WE GET IT, YOU ARE PREGNANT! WELL DONE!

It may sound a bit harsh but i just don't understand why we need relentless updates. I know they are excited and all that, ive got a 7 week old so i have a very fresh memory about how exciting it all is, but for everyone else it gets boring really quickly. I used to get sick of people continuously asking me how i was and expecting a pregnancy update when i was pregnant, and loved it when people ignored the fact i was expecting and spoke to me like an actual person, not a baby growing vessel.

Is it too much to ask that women realise the world doesnt revolve around their pregnancy and that everyone else is just getting on with their lives??????

YANBU. I suspect most of the people on my FB don't know I'm pregnant and 'thanks' to being so hugely fat anyway, at 34+6, I still don't REALLY look up the duff.

I got told the other day I don't behave like I'm pregnant. [shrug] This is my first so I'm not entirely sure how I'm meant to behave? Is there some sort of mummy to be behaviour that I'm missing out on?
