Article: To The Lady Ashamed of Being Pregnant with Her Fourth
I read this article last night and could soooo relate to how this woman felt when she was questioned while she was pregnant with her fourth. The expectant mama, like many of us, had received an array of responses to her pregnancy. The author of the article made me laugh with HER responses!
If only more were like the author of the article and blessed pregnant women instead of shaming them for desiring children, what an improvement that would be!
Have you ever been "shamed" for having more than the 1-2 children that is the so-called "norm"? Or have you ever been the one to put your foot in your mouth when talking to an expectant mama? Thoughts on the article?
That is in my personal life, but I would never judge a stranger for how many children they have. There are plenty of supermoms out there that were born for big families!
I've had people judge me about having only one child and people ask "when are you having your next? "You're NOT planning on having your next?" "Your child needs a sibling to share their childhood with."
There is judgement everywhere I turn, and its up to me to let it slide off my shoulders.
It's funny that people think that, but I really think they do!
( of course here on the site) but family and friends not all because I didn't want to here no comments about "why did you do it again" but what bother me the most is that most of this ppl that ask surprise have the same amount or more children, like really u judging me? My mother is a mayor support in my life but she will be the 1st to be surprise but she have 4 kids WOW ONE LESS THEN ME! lol
