pickle, I've tried to remind myself to tell people a vaguer date but as it is I've told everyone "mid September". And I completely agree about everyone considering your pregnancy public domain. I got really annoyed with a friend yesterday who wanted to rub my belly, even though she is a close friend and we hug etc. but that's just too much. She's also one to chime in about her own pregnancy and saying things like "oh, you're not there yet, just you wait..." and it kills me! How does she know how I feel?
I know exactly how annoying this is. This is my third baby and I have a friend who is having her 4th. Of course she has all these stories about how different pregnancy number 3 is, how ALL third pregnancies are, how she doesn't care about the gender this time....blah, blah, blah. It is like having a 4th means she is "in" on some special kind of pregnancy secret.
She also had a ton of opinions on breastfeeding while pregnant. My son is 3.5 and she hasn't nursed a kiddo THIS far (which is fine, not faulting her) and not this long during a pregnancy...but she kept telling me that certain things were going to happen (and she is an expert because she is a CLC) I am still making TONS of milk and nursing is pretty pain free....I don't even know what to say to her about it. Smile and nod? Also, this is the first pregnancy that m/s hasn't completely kicked my butt. A lot of people I talk to claim that nursing can help with morning sickness, so maybe that is it? When I mentioned it early on she shot me down....for someone who is so into natural childbirth and all things pregnancy related, she is one of my MOST negative friends. It is so odd.
