Why is it that when you are pregnant everyone feels like they are now your doctor? A guy at work told me to stop drinking water out of plastic containers because it will give me and my baby cancer. When I was at the temple, the sealer wouldn't let me kneel for long periods of time due to my situation. Today at the convenience store across the street, the clerk was shocked to find out I didn't know what brand of prenatal vitamins I was taking and told me to start drinking fish oil.
I realize that everyone is just trying to be nice and I do appreciate when I am offered a chair or someone helps carry something heavy, but I am tired of being looked at as a nothing more than a carrier. I am a person who has interests other than the child growing inside of me.
Anyway, I'm just venting.
