let her enjoy the excitement

in a few months it will be talk of first smiles, how intelligent and advanced her baby is and this is far more boring

and in a few months she'll have stretch marks and bags under her eyes.

Listen:some parents of both sexes act as if they have invented the process all by their little selves. Don't let it annoy you!

I also feel this way and I an also pg with my first...

The way some people go on it's like they actually swapped their personality for a baby. It grates!

YANBU - I can't stand it!! Hyper mums to be will turn into huper mums with their a blow by blow account of nappy contents sad She is obviously excited but it's boring as hell for everyone else- trouble is, you can't say anything because it will always sound mean no matter how it is put. Just grit your teeth!

YADNBU - My friend was like this even though she knew im TTC and her friend had a MC and they wouldnt do a D&C to remove the dead baby for 2 weeks!!!

I hid her.

I can honestly say, and this may sound mean, that i can't see us ever being friends properly again. She has become a complete baby bore, its like the friend i knew doesnt exist any more.
