File THIS under: things absolutely not necessary to say to a pregnant woman…
I don’t often take umbrage with peoples words because I like to believe they have good intentions – I have misspoke before with good intentions, too…
But I didn’t feel this was necessary and I won’t lie, as someone who has struggled (AND been transparent and vocal about said struggles) with the changes her body has gone through, I definitely did not need to hear this today.
No pregnant woman wants to hear this, probably not at any time during pregnancy, but certainly not when they are barely halfway.
(No, he never responded to my last message…)
If you are gonna say shit like this, be man enough to face the wrath, am I right? But better yet, if YOU haven’t been pregnant and experienced the MILLIONS of changes your body goes through, maybe pipe down and keep quiet? 🙂
For the record, due to my age, and my Diabetes, I see my OB GYN twice a month, and we discuss my fitness habits each time, and each time she clears me and/or tells me specific things she does not want me doing, and I ALWAYS abide by that. Fitness is my stress relief, but it is NOT something I would use to put my child at risk, and my doctor is very attuned to my habits and we discuss this often, as anyone who is pregnant and active should!
