Health Warning: Pregnancy Boards CAN Cause Diabetes

OMG. I was wasting some time here this morning (a work situation arose I really don't want to talk about because it makes me feel rather homicidal) and I decided to check out the "What to Expect When You're Expecting" website's blogs and posting boards for women due in November.

Holy. Effing. Crapah!

These chicks have got to get a life...they end each post with a veritable waterfall of banners and pictures photoshopped to the gills with cutesy sayings. Most of their entries were made up of 5% badly spelled one-liners like "You godda be joking me!" and 95% stupid banners. This sampling isn't the worst by far and it doesn't even come close to the number of banners some of these preggo crazies have following each and every posting.

I can appreciate how excited these women obviously are about their pregnancies (since I'm pretty frickin' stoked about Bug), but do you need 10 or more sparkly, animated, diabetes-inducing banners to express that joy? Call me crazy but I think just one might suffice...


  1. Dearn pregant daughter-in-law:
    Just sitting here drinking wine,getting caught up with your blog,snickering to myself and so excited about the pending birth of my grandchild. I know you're in a lot of discomfort BUT I'm finally going to be a GRANDMOTHER thanks to your present and future pain. Thanks for being such a great MOTHER. Love Cathy

  2. Pain? There's pain involved in this process? Ummm...I think there's been some kind of mix up 'cause I didn't sign up for pain...I opted for the painless package dammit! LOL
