Officially Pregnant

Our infertility, miscarriage, IVF, and pregnancy journey x 2 (still waiting on pregnancy #2)

Should I Feel Bad…Nah….

on May 9, 2014

So I posted awhile back about a girl at work that just seriously pissed me off…see it here…about being pregnant now and it being the first time they tried, blah blah blah.

Yesterday, I had it with her.  I let her have it and I don’t feel the least bit bad about it.

While I’ve tried to keep our pregnancy under wraps given our fabulous failure history, my darling principal has dropped the news to at least 9 different people while in front of me (Lord knows how many people she’s told while I’ve not been there).  At lunch Thursday, this…this…just icky person, I shall call her booger from here forward, decides to blurt out to a room full of fellow teachers that she’s pregnant.  She’s 6 weeks.  IS SHE FUCKING CRAZY!?!  Who does that?!!?!  So I was already a little shocked at her behavior.  So nonchalant about it all.

So, if that wasn’t the worst of her behavior she made more shitty comments directly to me.  Here’s the conversation (paraphrased of course because I have the memory of a squirrel).

Background: With her first child she had massive MS that lasted until delivery.

Booger (crouching on the floor): Ugh, remind me again why I decided to do this again?

Me: Suck it up, Buttercup.  People in my situation love this shit.  Don’t take it for granted so much.

Booger: Would you say that if it lasted 9 months?

Me: Uh….YEAH.  If it meant I carried to term and had a healthy baby to call my own.  YES.  

At this point I walk away because I’ve about had it.

Upon my walk back to my classroom:

Booger: Well, I’ve had a child and it’s not such a big deal

Me (face of shock):  Then you’re talking to the wrong person because again, people in my situation would do anything to have a child.  But I wouldn’t know, would I? Since I haven’t been able to get past 6 weeks pregnant in my life.  You should be loving this.

Cue me storming off and shutting my door on her.

She hasn’t talked to me since and frankly….I don’t give a flying fuck.

    OMG! You’re my hero! I can’t believe that bitch said “I’ve had a child and it’s not such a big deal”. Your response was perfect. Just perfect. Seriously, what a bitch! I’m so sorry you have to work with this person!

    What a bitch! Everyday I am astounded by the amount of people who aren’t grateful to be either pregnant or have children! My principal, gets her kids dressed for school in the school car park and feeds them breakfast at school. As well as leaves then at home some nights by themselves so she can work at school! The works just ain’t fair. Well done for speaking up and setting her straight. Hope your feeling okay. Xx

    I’m sorry you had to deal with that, but I the way you handled it! I also haven’t told anyone at work (besides my coworker across the hall) yet, but I’m going to need to sooner than I want to due to state testing and me needing water in my classroom.

  8. Oh my God!!! I would have been a LOT bitchier/meaner. Kudos for you for keeping your cool and telling her how it is. ❤

  9. Lisette says:

    Good work girlfriend! Seriously who are these people!?!? Ugh… xx

  10. Stefanie says:

    I’m sorry she sucks so badly. I’m proud of you for speaking your mind though! I work with a woman who is very negative, it’s awful. Hopefully someday I have the nerve to tell her off!
