Hey guys I'm a 25 year old shitlady who's always been conscious about my health and like to keep fit. I'm also 36 weeks pregnant and have gained the necessary weight for a healthy pregnancy and my body shape looks the same besides my bump.
Anyway, I keep a (mostly) healthy diet and have scaled my workouts down to walking and a prenatal yoga to stay somewhat fit.
So a few days ago, the boyfriend and I attended our hospital tour but before that, we enrolled in a birthing class with a few other couples. All kinds of swollen ladies that have gained pregnancy weight and even a little extra...but there was this One ham I could already tell was huge before pregnancy, She had to be around 250 lbs and I'm guessing early 30s. Umm ok? I thought nothing of it. So apparently, this is her first kid also she made that quite clear when she kept talking, asking stupid irrelevant questions, and just being obnoxious overall. She just loved to hear herself talk. When the teacher went into the topic of how high blood pressure can cause pre-eclampsia and that overweight women were more at risk for this, she just blurted out "Excuse me, do you have kids?" To the woman teaching our class. We all kind of looked at her like wtf, and at this point my boyfriend was already annoyed with her and her stupid remarks so he just tells her to please let the teacher finish and that some of us have to leave on time. He works graveyard so we really just wanted to get all the info possible without wasting time. Needless to say, he was pretty fucking annoyed with her stalling the class every 10 minutes.
So during our break time, the boyfriend and I decided to get a little snack and I picked up a ginger ale before heading back to class. We're all sitting in the room and my boyfriend is in the bathroom so I'm drinking my ginger ale and using my phone and before I know it, the ham is standing right in front of me with the biggest fake smile and tells me in a overly sweet and high pitched voice "Excuse me sweetie, I know you're young and probably don't know this but, you know you can't be drinking soda during pregnancy right? The caffeine in it causes ADHD."
Um WHAT? I've heard a lot of stupid shit throughout this pregnancy but this is truly on some other level. I couldn't help but giggle a little bit but then I realized she was serious. One, ginger ale has no caffeine, two, there has been absolutely no medical studies that prove that caffeine can give your child ADHD.
At that moment I'm still dumbstruck at what ham said and I had no smart or witty response I just said "I'm sure everything will be ok." And went back to texting so she could hopefully get the hint and roll away from me, which she did when she saw my boyfriend approaching.
Well it seems like my response triggered her and before we began the class, again she raised her hand and asked if the teacher could go over caffeine and it's effects on a baby. Which the teacher refused and politely told her she was willing to answer any off-topic questions after class! Ha!
So the teacher finished the class by telling us they have a support page on Facebook where we can talk, share stories and support. I joined the group and guess who I found? The ham! And boy is she super active in that group, she always posts pictures of shit she eats throughout the day, stories, rants about her husband, pictures of herself. She pretty much puts her whole life out there for strangers to see. Today she posted about how she got an assortment of Valentine's Day chocolates and how she had finished half the box because you know SHE'S PREGNANT AND HER CRAVINGS WERE OH SO TERRIBLE. Truly amusing stuff. Her and her husband are both fat and I'm starting to feel sorry for that unborn child of hers.
Oh and today, some worried chick posted something about her husband spanking her during foreplay and she got cramps afterwards and was debating on wether to go get checked out. Ham's judgmental response? "OMG why would he do that!? I would kill my husband if he ever did that to me!" eye roll
So much more Facebook gold to look forward to.
