In a fit of trying to embrace pregnancy and not worry about anything bad happening, I downloaded not one, not two, but THREE pregnancy apps on my phone.
One of them is the BabyCenter app and when you put your due date in you are automatically put into a “birth club” message board group that has other people due in the same month as you.
And what I’m learning is that women outside of the blogosphere but still on the internet are AWFUL. Seriously. It had been such a long time since I had really spent much time on message boards that I had forgotten how mean and troll-y people can be, but geez louise. Some of these ladies are just mean. There must be something about not having to deal with IF that gives some women a sense of entitlement to put others down. I haven’t made any posts or anything, but I was just flipping through yesterday and came across several really cruel ones-for instance, a bunch of “mean girls” were making fun of newly excited pregnant ladies putting up bump pictures at 4 weeks. We all know there isn’t a “bump” there, but who cares? They’re excited and documenting things from the very beginning. Good for them-lemme tell you, ain’t nobody seeing my belly anytime soon. I need the baby to grow and stretch out some of this fat I have first.
Here is my point-I LOVE YOU GUYS. I’m so glad that YOU are my support system and not those crazy preggos.
Oh, you want to talk Beta now? Well I got nothin-sorry. They drew my blood just a little over an hour ago and I’ll hear this afternoon. The nurse was really sweet and chatty with me today. Apparently the nurse who returns the messages told her that I had multiple positive tests (because yeah, I might have mentioned that) and she asked me about them, and then we both agreed that today would be the longest day ever.
And it will.
