Okay, so many of my pregnant friends post status updates that "condition drop" their pregnancy in the same way people "name drop" famous or important connections. They do this in such a way as to imply that pregnancy is the only possible reason the rest of the update could occur. For instance:
"My pregnant self slipped on the ice today. I'm so sore now!" Or "I went swimming today. I'm pregnant, so it felt amazing!" Or "I'm so tired! This pregnant mama NEEDS a nap!"
Don't get me wrong, I'm aware that pregnancy can make you more clumsy, or feel more warm than usual. I know that pregnancy can be exhausting. I guess what bugs be is that it sort of implies that I, because I am not pregnant, cannot possibly slip on the ice, need a nap, or enjoy swimming. It makes me want to start adding "my non-pregnant self" (or possibly "my barren self?") to status updates.
"Stayed up late last night on a date with my husband! My non-pregnant self needs a nap!" Or "I went on every roller coaster in the park today. My barren self is so sore and nauseous!"
Is that terrible of me? My friends do it in person too. "I think I'll go home after lunch today. I just am so tired. I mean, I'm pregnant, so..." Ugh. I need to remember to not do this to my single or non-pregnant friends if/when we do get to have kids.
