Why is it that the moment you announce you are pregnant (or you start showing) is the exact moment people think they can openly judge you? And why does this not stop when you have a newborn in your arms?
I was pretty self conscious about not being able to wear my wedding rings while pregnant (I was far too swollen). Since Liam arrived I hardly care, I have much more important things on my mind, and I'm still slightly swollen. I've noticed people treat me totally different if my ring finger is bare or if there is a cheap fake stone there. This makes me want to puke or punch them depending on my hormone levels at the moment. What is wrong with society? Can't we support one another? I'm clearly not a unwed 16 year old mom, but what if I was and I was in despite need of some support?!?! Why judge one another, why now be supportive and understanding and reach out to one another? Geeze just share a smile!
Another thing that bugs me is the people, usually strangers or people who only assume they know me, is forcing their opinions on me. I had one person sending me these ridiculous online articles about natural birth and other related topics. I hated that she assumed I had not educated myself and she outwardly told me she didn't think my dr had my best interest at heart. She had never met him! And she was sorely mistaken. Her actions ruined whatever friendship we may have had. All because she choose to judge me instead of being understanding and kind.
It could be in part my hormones but I'm so sick of people being judgemental, this is not our jobs! So take your judgement and shove it!
