Harumph.

Ms Smug is one of the many pregnant people on the message board where Mr Spouse and I met. I blogged about hearing she was pregnant here. Today she is complaining she has a cold and can't take Lemsip. I do actually sympathise as I remember feeling rotten and not being able to take anything. But those cold sachets are basically just overpriced paracetemol, so I posted as much, and was told to take my advice and shove it, basically. Apparently the brand she wants to take has a decongestant in it.

What do you think - is it worth pointing out that I would love to be in her position?

There are so many times that I wonder about saying something to people who are pregnant - who are complaining about little paltry things - when I would give anything to be in their position.

What I have found, in the end, is it's just not worth it. They don't understand the hurt... they just don't.

Hoping you are able to find peace about it soon.

I'm with april. They don't get it and we just hurt ourselves trying to explain. Look after yourself

look after yourself. and, you know, I did have the odd standard lemsip and paracetamol during pregnancy.

In my opinion people like the lady you mention are attention seeking imbeciles who want only to highlight the fact that they are both pregnant and unwell and I would be reluctant to give oxygen to their self publicising....

That's a bit over the top, not to mention unnecessary.

I'm not going to delete that but play nicely please...
