How to Have Your Day Ruined

So Sweetie Pie let the cat out with his parents yesterday, which of course meant that I had to tell my parents, because you can't have one side know without the other knowing.

So I call my parents last night and this is the conversation I have:

CW: Hey Mom! Guess what? I'm pregnant again!

M: You are? Congratulations? How far along are you?

CW: 3.5 weeks.

M: Oh. (pause) Well, we're just not going to get excited then, are we?

Cue to Catwoman freaking out and telling off her mother.

Yes, I had a miscarriage last time.

Yes, it broke my heart.

But everything in life comes with risk. If every girl or woman who went out on a first date with a man thought "oh, this guy is likely to break my heart or this relationship will make me want to gauge my eyes out", then where would the fun be to date at all?

Of course there's a risk that my pregnancy could terminate.

But I don't care. I'm happy, I'm excited. I'm looking forward to the next 34.5 weeks.

And I won't let her take it away from me.

On another note, my poop issues have resolved themselves. I was extremely gassy yesterday, to the point that I apparently accidentally tried to kill myself by gassing myself in our enclosed glass shower.

Apparently one of my farts has the power to remove a room's oxygen in 2.8 seconds flat.

Love,

Catwoman.

Gotta love it when you put all your fart info on the net! hahah. :) I *heart* you and I'm excited for you and there are other people on here that are as well. :) Don't worry about what your mom said. When I mentioned to my mom that my period has (yet) to come she said, "Oh, well. Wonderful. Don't you guys know how to stop this?" Considering we only had sex twice last month, I don't think we were trying.

Sorry for such a long comment. Geesh.

I'm stopping now.

I heart you and I am so, so HAPPY for YOU!

Well, I think it's time for a party. If you go through life expecting to be disappointed all the time, I think that you get exactly what you expect. If you go through life looking for rainbows and puppies, you will find them.

I can relate with you, about how can certain people (moms...) ruin our day with pessimism. Specially in this subject. Keep your good thoughts and do love your belly because it's gonna be all right! People says horrible things to pregnant women, it's weird!

AndreAnna said...

Aww, sorry your mom burst your bubble. You go ahead and be happy and rock out. We are all so happy for you!

Manda2774 said...

Congratulations!!! Thats so great.....by the way I remember that gas from when I was pregnant and OMG! Im so glad it went away after a few weeks so i didnt die!

Kellie said...

Sucky your Mom had to rain on your parade like that. If that's how she feels, she should keep it to herself.

I? Am THRILLED.

So thrilled I want to fly to Texas for the baby shower :)

Rachel said...

Usually I totally disagree with your mother and this time is no different. But, I think she just doesn't want you to be hurt or herself to be hurt. She just put it to you in a shitty ass way.

You deserve to be excited and if you are, she should be too!!

Nothing worth doing is easy.

Bren said...

Your labels just kill me!

If I'd been discouraged enough to quit after a miscarriage, I wouldn't have my little guy or my Baby Little Sunshine. If you want it badly enough, it's worth the risk.

Blue Momma said...

I'm happy for you and Mom can just bite me.

Hope that's ok.

Sandy said...

Playing Devil's advocate, your mom was just trying to protect you and probably herself.

Having said that, I repeat what I said yesterday. CONGRATULATIONS!

Melissa said...

Do you want me to beat your mom up for you? I can get on the 401 right now. LOL! :)

Seriously, some people just dont know how to be happy for other people. Screw them.

The best revenge is to live well.

Your mom has no right to take away your joy.

And, I keep picturing you with a cape and mask as the new super hero. The Gas Passer. Ha I slay me.

Katie said...

You are SOO freakin funny! I'm glad your poop issues are fixed.

But hey, technically (not meaning to rain on your parade) wouldn't you have 36.5 weeks left if you are 3.5 weeks pregnant? Isn't pregnancy 40 weeks from last period?? I always got this confused. It's approx 38 weeks long from when you ovulated, but 40 from LMP. I'm pretty sure anyway. But either way, the fact remains you are PREGGO and I'm so glad you're not letting anything get you down! I just LOVE your analogy about the boyfriend/heartbreak thing! I may use it with my own mom in the future! heehee!

Oh, and now you need a NEW lilypie ticker!! :-D

That Chick Over There said...

Well, maybe she's just trying to be realistic. Maybe? I hope?

I'm very happy for you. Congrats.

Jerseygirl89 said...

Congratulations and sorry about your mom's reaction. Hopefully you'll both get over it.

I love the fart story. Just to warn you, the farting never went away with my second. I can still clear a room and he'll be two next week.

J said...

I am so happy for you!! And, a little jealous! (I am being a big girl and admitting it. Hope that doesn't upset you!)

Congrats to you and your family! Don't be brought down by what anyone says, you should be thrilled right now, and no one should try and take that from you!

Ms. Porter said...

Nobody gets it until they've been through it I suppose....I think it's wonderful that you are sharing this wonderful news. I'm in a wicked ugly mood and I would gladly deal with anyone who can't just get on the excited train with us...I mean you!

Kat said...

Oh, moms just suck sometimes! Piss on her for raining on your happiness. I had two miscarriages before having my two year old, I'd have been so mad at my mom if she'd ever said anything like that to me.

You're 3.5 weeks pregnant, I'm excited for you!

curlygin78 said...

Okay, first post ever I've read of yours, and I love it. Best wishes for your great news. I'm actually looking for news of the same sort lately. (m/c 6wks in 07/07) I'll keep reading your posts to see how you're doing.

(and I can understand a bit of your mom's hesitations.) :-)

"J" said...

Congratulations!!! =)

Beccy said...

Many congratulations, here's to a long, exciting pregnancy.

Joy T. said...

Huge congratulations to you, here's to a great pregnancy!!! Ok ok congratulations on the poop thing too.

Julie said...

Yeah, ignore your mom. We're happy for you and excited!

I'm a Mom!..? said...

Congratulations!!! We will be sending good baby vibes your way!! Keep us posted.

Wonderful World of Weiners said...

I want to love you but your powerful nasty farts scare me.

Hallie :)

Blondie said...

Congratulations and much luck in the upcoming weeks. If everyone thought like you mom we would still be living in caves without fire. You can't expect negativity to get you a positive outcome. I myself have been gassy the last week, fortunately mine were the loud but friendly type.

random_mommy said...

Your mother...
you could write an entire blog all about the fucktarded shit that comes out of her mouth.

She's a buzzkiller. How'd you get to be so normal and nice and happy?

Blondie said...

Hey, I was tagged by a MEME, since I don't know that many people, consider yourself tagged. Check my blog if you want in! Hope all is well

Krystyn said...

I think I might have told my mom to shove it! Keep those positive thoughts and continue being happy. Congratulations.

A's Mom said...

Don't listen to people... especially your relatives. I actually HAD to tell everyone that I was pregnant at 5 weeks because I was a vet tech and part of my daily duties included radiographs. I didn't want to tell everyone so early on, but I'm glad I did.

Melissa :) said...

I'm not a "mom" person, so I say kick her & her comments to the curb (& tell her if it will make YOU feel better) & by george YOU BE HAPPY! This is YOUR life, not hers. You be excited! You deserve your excitement! Kiss it, mom!

Told you I'm not a mom person. Sorry. lol :)
