to be annoyed with this comment on a FB group?

On the group for my antenatal classes, a comment on the wall - by James XXX -
'you to us saved us from a cesarean. thanks guys.'

Us? Us?

Is that as sickable as people who say 'we're pregnant'?

Well, I think you could read it both ways. Possibly James was worried about his partner having a cesarean, maybe she was worried about it and he is sharing in the general relief, maybe he was worried about the recovery period and having to do a lot more work around the house after! I don't think it's particularly sick-making per se but kind of depends on the context and the person saying it.

Did it say 'you to' as well?

oh sorry 'you to us' is the name of the class.

Why people care enough about such things to post a thread on it is beyond me...

GibbonInARibbon Thu 24-Sep-09 08:16:21

and annoyed? Really?

And what's wrong with "we're pregnant"? In a loving relationship partners share the pregnancy.

PestoLovelyMonster Thu 24-Sep-09 08:21:33

I think it's nice YABU

we dont carry & deliver baby - he isnt pg

it a gushy cringey term
we are parents -yes
we are pg definitley not

girlsyearapart Thu 24-Sep-09 08:26:24

don't really get the op but hate the 'we're pregnant' thing.
Really? We are giving up drink for 9 months?
We are going to grow to the size of a baby elephant? We are going to be unable to tie our own shoelaces? We are going tp push a 9lb baby out?
I think not..

GibbonInARibbon Thu 24-Sep-09 08:32:16

But to get annoyed over the use of the word 'we'? Really?

Maybe it's just me but I tend to save annoyance for something that matters in life.

For the record, it's not a term I would use, would I get annoyed about it? No.

scottishmummy Thu 24-Sep-09 08:34:59

op i presume james means collective we-the class. think it is a nice post

ObsidianBlackbirdMcNight Thu 24-Sep-09 08:38:49

Oh I het annoyed about a lot of things. I have plenty to go around. But ok, IABU!

Nice to see a father being involved and having manners.

DoNotPressTheRedButton Thu 24-Sep-09 09:33:56

exactly fabaersgirl

we're expecting (becuase he is if not actually pg) perhaps better than we're PG but involved happy Dad = good imo, who caresabout the details?

(Ok, i'd have berated DH about the accuracies LOL- buy ykwim wink)

AnotherBloodySugaBabe Thu 24-Sep-09 09:35:15

Oh God, 'We're pregnant' is horrific. So Yankified. I lose a tiny bit of affection for anyone I hear utter these words.

Feierabend Thu 24-Sep-09 09:43:06

Ahem. A CS can be a difficult experience for the father as well. YABU.

FabBakerGirlIsBack Thu 24-Sep-09 09:49:27

My DH would agree with you Feierabend. He thought he was going to lose us both when I had my emergency section.

TotallyAndUtterlyPaninied Thu 24-Sep-09 09:51:09

I always say 'we're pregnant'. It's DH's baby, too and he's with me every step of the way. I wonder if people find me sickening too.

scottishmummy Thu 24-Sep-09 10:01:45

we dont get
stretch marks

she does ,he doesnt

undoubtably pg for the dad is a huge emotional rollercoaster,i dont seek to diminish that.nor the support and love a good partner gives BUT

we are pg just isnt accurate
we are expecting a baby is

Anyone who takes anything said on the internet personally is unreasonable.

Don't mind the 'we' in this case, but I do find 'we're pregnant' very vomitty.
