I don't mean to bash DH - it's our first baby and he's trying, but he's notorious for not having a very sensitive filter so he sometimes says things without thinking about them. He's not intentionally trying to put me down, he's just not thinking about how the things he says might impact my suddenly more sensitive ego. He's been improving a lot more lately because he can feel her moving and kicking now, so I think he's starting to understand what all of this is for. The coworker, however, was being passive aggressive.
I guess what I'm bumbling around trying to say with all the complaints is that whenever I saw pregnant women before I became one, I wanted to shower them with love, support, and attention, so I always assumed that everyone felt that way and it's been a bit of a shock to learn differently.
I'm sorry to the mamas with genuinely unsupportive partners, as well as to those who have to do it alone.
On symptoms: I'm sure I've talked about this before, but I've had relentless heartburn every single day for months. It's to a point now where I've distinguished three types; "classic heartburn" (with a burning, splashing sensation), "heartburn sludge" (where the burning is more of a sludge in the back of my throat that inches up each time I burp), and "the cold burn" (like classic heartburn, only it feels cold instead of hot).
According to Old Wives Tales, heartburn = hair. If this is true, I'm quite confident that my little girl is going to Rapunzel her way out during labour.
