Rude Comments About Pregnancy...?
Have you ever had someone make a really vulgar or rude comment related to your pregnancy? I'm at 30 weeks, but I've avoided discussing my pregnancy with most people for a long time because I HATE it when people say, "Don't you know what causes that?" and then laugh because they think that's hilarious. I suppose this "joke" stems from the fact that this is my 6th baby and my 5th one is under 2. I am in my 40's and well-educated. Obviously, I know where babies come from. Anyway, the latest comment takes the cake, and I want to see what other people would think if it was directed at them: I posted something related to my pregnancy on facebook. It was a harmless, light-hearted post. I have only about 75 friends on fb, none of whom are total strangers, so it was like making a little comment among friends and family. Well, the mother of one of my son's classmates, who at one time was my neighbor, typed something about being surprised that I'm pregnant (she clearly missed my fb announcement) and then said my husband "must be shooting nothing but babies out of that thing". WHAT??? I was horrified and very embarrassed at the vulgarity of that comment. I wanted desperately to delete it, but it was stuck there for all my conservative and well-mannered friends and family to see. I trusted that no one would say anything that... nasty! Pretty much everyone I know is from the same conservative area, Bible-belt Texas, and I can't imagine anyone saying something like that to a pregnant lady in front of 75 people. Am I being silly to find that comment so offensive?
