Something that has bugged me for a while is that it seems that I am not taken seriously on account of being pregnant. I know I have been effected by by hormones but am well aware of when this is happening. For example, I cried persistently last Sunday for no good reason, just being very overwhelmed and I was well aware this was pregnancy hormones. So sometimes i am more tearful but thats about it. However, both my DH and people I manage at work have dismissed some valid grievances with moodiness due to my pregnancy, when I know full well that these would have been issues when I was not pregnant. It is almost used as a reason that I must always be in the wrong! Is this just me or do others feel sometimes that they are not taken seriously?
Agreed. In the same respect, iI'm not comfortable with pregnancy get out clauses...Like preggo brain... I was recently frustrated that I didn't do something as well as I should have and got told, it is OK because pregnant women are confused and forgetful because of hormones. Actually, I wanted to do it better, and know I can, pregnant or not!
