Hi, I have been mostly lurking. I am almost 8 weeks pregnant with my 4th baby (first was stillborn so it will be baby number 3 to be parenting).
Anyway, I was wondering at which pregnancy have you either started to care less about or people have stopped asking you the typical pregnancy questions, such as; due date, gender, natural or csection, etc. etc.
This is my fifth pregnancy and hopefully 4th full term pregnancy, and hopefully a healthy baby. #1 was stillborn, #2 was a surprise pregnancy 7 weeks after losing #1 and is now 2.5 years old, #3 early m/c, #4 special needs baby and is only 5 months old. And now I am 8 weeks again. I usually could really care less about what people say/ask but this time I am nervous about even saying anything to people. Everybody is always supportive of us overall but I am worried about reactions this time since our youngest is only 5 months and has health issues (although doing super well, actually) and being pregnant already. I am actually psyched to be excited that I have minimal morning sickness and we are headed into cold weather season so I can "hide" under sweaters and sweatshirts for a while. I really don't like the idea of hiding because I am actually really excited but with having the extra stress of trying to manage doctor appts for the youngest and still be a good mom to my toddler and keep my household going I just don't feel like I have the emotional fortitude to deal with even one single comment that is even remotely not supportive.
Also, and maybe I am just turning into a crabby old lady at 26, but I just don't feel interested in the typical DDC topics. I kinda want to be in a DDC because I usually think they are fun but I scroll through the questions and find them like BTDT x 4. For example, caffeine or no caffeine? when do you go to your first appt? find out the gender or leave it a surprise? RRLT safe or not? Etc.
