'As an experienced mum' 🤢🤮

Hate, hate HATE it when a mum says this to another mum. You aren't better than anyone or necessarily more experienced🤦🤦 Anyone have a phrase that really winds them up?

The mum whose little one is a bit older than yours, so everything you say, their response is “oh well just wait until they’re doing THIS”, or “oh just you wait - that’s nothing”... like - I get it, your baby will always have that 6 month edge on mine. Congratulations! It’s like some women think it’s a constant competition to be the most tired / worn out / stressed. Does my head in.

Yeah now you mention it, MIL does do it a lot, like whatever you say it’s a ‘been there done that’ answer followed by ‘the next stage is even worse so this is fine in comparison’ and you’re like ... errm, I just want to focus on this thanks!! I guess you’re right they’re probably just trying to help us prepare! But it’s annoying at the time hey!

No offence to them but your own mothers when they say well back in my day we did this, I’m like yes mother cause back in your day when Godzilla was born most of the shit you got away with doing was mostly illegal 🙄🙄🙄 I love my mum dearly I really do but since having my LG it’s all I get from her 😒😒

I’m still pregnant and at 38 weeks. So at the moment “not long to go now” is really annoying me. I know it is well meaning. But most likely I still have a month to go - most first time mums labour will more likely happen at around 42 weeks. I’m starting to have people check up on me and asking is the baby here yet. 😂 no, it’s not. I’ll tell you when it is, no need to check on me.

Oooooh fuck me the not long to go one. Or “any sign of the baby” FUCKING YES THATS WHY I TOOK A PREGNANCY TEST 8 FUCKING MONTHS AGO SANDRA. Honestly I started to ignore ppl I was so agg at that point. Especially considering she weren’t even born until 42+1 and the comments came in at 37 weeks. I’m already full of rage as a person as it is but that really boiled my piss at the time 😂( life you say I did know it was well meaning too.)
