please stop telling me (with barely concealed malicious delight) all of the following
- You’re life is going to change so much!
- Get all the sleep you can now!
- Well those days are over!
I know, all right? Maybe I don’t physically know yet, but I am a reasonably intelligent woman, before deciding to get pregnant I realised that I would have to give up things like regular sleep, copious amounts of booze and fancy dinners out. I still chose to do this.
So stop with the dire warnings, already, I’m not an idiot. I’m sure things will be harder than I ever imagined when I’m in the middle of raising a newborn, but I’m also sure there will be plenty of positives to help make up for it. So give the gleeful warnings a rest, please, they just make you look like a jerk.
Also, if you are on the bus and there are no seats and you see a pregnant woman staring balefully at her lack of options, stand the hell up and stop being a selfish buttface. Same goes for old people and the disabled. You can still read your stupid free newspaper in a standing position you giant douchebag.
