Pregnant women are lunatics - discuss

ARGGGHHHH!

I don't want to spend any more time with any more pregnant women. It's like standing in an overcrowded nest waiting for scraps to be fed to us while everyone else around you stands with their mouth open thinking they're the only other baby bird there.

and if I have to sit next another hugely pregnant woman in the antenatal waiting room (with no windows and no water fountain) whilst she eats a jumbo bag of crisps like her life depends on it I shall go and live in a paddy field until it's my time to deliver and come back 2 months later. On the other side of me there is a woman whose husband is reading sections of his gadget magazine out to her, wearing drainpipe jeans and white socks. I kept looking at her thinking 'I wouldn't even sit next to him, let alone let myself be impregnated with him'.

I hate hormones!

lol im not pregnant but i can remember the feelings so well!!! I would look at people and think they were just pretending to be pregnant. I also used to see mothers with young kids and say to myself 'Im not going to be like that'

yup, they can't think of anything else.

Thought I was abnormal because I feel quite normal. My husband, on the other hand, has turned into mr forgetful. He forgets to take his luch to work, even if I say "don't forget your lunch" as he kisses me goodbye.

Last night he left the garage keys in the garage door despite me asking him "you haven't left the keys in the garage door have you?". I even had to warn him that there was another car on the roundabout before he killed us all yesterday.

What the hell is wrong with expectant daddies??

LOL

I don't know about other PG women but I really find it hard to be patient with kids!! What I am going to do i do not know. I actually moved table in a restaurant last night (wanted to get out for a nice meal in peace and quiet) only to be surrounded by kids!!! 'Mummy, what is in the chicken' 'Mummy, i don't like that' 'can we have...' 'i need the toilet'......ohhh..what will i do?

Careful, Chacha, the mummies will string you up..... Don't you know you're not allowed to be intolerant of other children when you become a mum?? I think there are a whole list of things you aren't allowed to be/think or say!!

Keep it up, I'm with you all the way and also move tables to get away from noisy children if I've gone out for a quiet meal - kind of ruins the night....

Stands back and waits for abuse.....

when i was pregnant with first I somehow?? managed to end up with someone elses trolley about half way through the shop. BUT didn't notice till nearly at checkout. Thought mmmmm I don't ususally buy lemonade etc etc.

Had to go to customer services who made an anoouncement to whole shop to check they had their correct trolley

ChaCha Sat 11-Jun-05 23:35:02

LOL @ Janeybops....he heee!!!

Mogwai - I will probably end up with the noisiest kid/s ever!!!! I can just see it! Payback time...
When are you due Mogwai?

mogwai Sun 12-Jun-05 15:51:08

I'm due on the 21st Chacha, so not long to go before I morph into a yummy mummy, a better, more tolerant person with no time to read the broadsheets and jam smeared on my Farrow and Ball walls

I misread the post about the shopping trolley and thought you were saying there was a child in the trolley that wasn't yours and you didn't notice! Now THAT would be funny!

Perhaps I've got pregnancy brain afterall!!

ChaCha Sun 12-Jun-05 18:06:47

Congratulations Mogwai! LOL at the broadsheets

yeah I'm only going to read "Your Baby" from now on. May have to cancel my subscription to "The Sunday Times" and "Intolerable Children". Today could have been the last time I ever read India Knight in peace (or at all).

Am beginning to sound like Cruella de Ville, even if I look more like mother hen right now. Am actually a nice person underneath this, I just want my body back....how about you?
